Third-Party manufacturer KFC Toys (Keith’s Fantasy Club) have been slowly releasing images on their weibo page of their newest product, Ditka, which is their attempt at the iconic triplechanger Blitzwing. Today, we finally have prototype images of all three modes – bot, tank and plane – and boy does it look like they nailed it.
This figure appears to scale with the current Masterpiece line and features a more realistic tank mode while retaining the iconic “wedge”-shaped jet mode. The figure appears to hit all of the high marks from the Generation 1 cartoon while also incorporating many aspects from the original toy from the ’80s. KFC is even looking out for the Animated Blitzwing fans and appears to have included three interchangeable faces used on that show.
This figure is available for pre-order today from many of our site sponsers and while it was originally scheduled to be released this month, it looks like a more realistic estimate is sometime later this year.
Jump over to the discussion thread to see all the newest images and to let us know what you think. Do you like how close they stuck to G1 or would you rather they had updated some of the modes a bit more for a more modern and realistic look? Sound off to let us know.
