Transformers Generations Voyager Class Blitzwing Figure

  • Incredible Blitzwing figure is a triple changer
  • Converts from robot mode to 1 of 2 vehicle modes
  • Jet mode
  • Tank mode
  • Includes figure and accessories

Within his heavily armored and highly destructive body, Blitzwing has the ice-cold mind of a master strategist – sometimes. At other times, he is a boiling cauldron of rage, waiting for any excuse to unleash his firepower on the nearest target. And now and again, he is a chaotic whirlwind of bizarre behavior and intermittent bursts of plasma fire. His unpredictability makes him a poor soldier, but his raw firepower and unstable mind make him a useful tool for a commander as capable as Megatron. Gear up for triple Transformers action with this awesome 3-in-1 Blitzwing figure! This crazy Decepticon can launch a fierce missile attack at his Autobot enemies in robot mode, but if the mission calls for bigger muscle, he can convert to tank mode. Convert him to jet mode just when his Autobot enemies think they’ve got him cornered! Keep converting him in 3 different ways so his enemies can’t keep up!

    OK, There are some rather bad flaws with Blitzwing, but most of them can be fixed with a few mods. Keep in mind, some of the mods are a little bit rough, others aren’t. I picked Blitzwing up today, knowing full well what kind of work lay ahead of me. Three hours later, I’m 95% happy with him. Here’s what I had to do to him, right out of the box.
    First, To solve the shoulder issue, I split the body apart (5 screws) and sanded the pillars for the 4 upper screws and the flats on both body halves (there are videos online showing how to do this). While I had the body apart, I did the second mod, which was to fix the head/nosecone issue. This one was my idea, since I hadn’t seen anyone else make any progress with it. I removed the head and then pried the gray bit it was connected to, out of the nose. I took the spring and stretched it to about twice it’s normal length and then cut about half an inch off. Next I cut the lower half of the gray bit off, even with the nub that the spring slides over. I also trimmed a bit off the nosecone where it hinges to it’s own gray bit. It has a bit of a catch there that makes it hard to tilt the nose back as far as it needed for a smooth transformation. While the head was off, I did the third mod, which was taking the head apart and cleaning the yellow paint of the “axle” that the face gimmick spins on. This allows the faces to be moved more freely without binding. Then I popped it all back together. Now the head goes down farther and has less tension, allowing the nosecone to fit flush, the shoulders lock in place and the faces move easily. My only issues now are with one foot being loose a bit, some floor polish on the ball-joint will correct that, one loose hip, again, floor polish to the rescue, and the last issue, that goofy rubber nosecone, which has no fix until a 3rd party steps in and makes a new one out of something other than rubber. “MY” thoughts on the figure- He’s cool, if you are a collector who can’t live without him and are willing to do the mods. He’s got too many problems to be fun for a child in my opinion. Springer is a much better figure for kids. With the mods, Blitzwing is a really fun transformer, but without them, he’s just annoying, since none of the modes will tab in right until you’ve at least done the shoulder mod.If you aren’t a member of any of the Transformer Forums online, My advice is to google figures for issues and watch some reviews on youtube before you buy anything. (AND I DO MEAN ANYTHING!) That way you will know what your getting into before hand. Over half of the Transformers I’ve bought in the past 5 years have needed at least some minor mods in order to transform and lock together the way they were meant to. On some it may be as simple as sanding a tab or heating a warped bit and straightening it, but some are sever, like Blitzwing. Just remember to study up on Transformers before you buy them. I really hope this review is helpful and I want to thank you for taking the time to read it.

    The worst figure mold so far in the 30th anniversary voyager line, very disappointed!, January 24, 2014

    I don’t have the G1 Blitzwing, so I thought this could be a nice add on to my collection. However, Hasbro did not design it well. And mine is missing the missile…

    There are three major problem in this mold.

    1. Head.

    The head is has a spring gimmick, once you take off the rubber jet nose, the head will pop out. But, the spring is somehow too strong, so the jet nose will not lock in position. And this stupid design will cause paint on the ears being scratched off. For my figure, it has paint chips all over his face…so I actually went local target to find out if this is a common issue. Well, I found every 1 of 3 has same paint chips problem. Also, it limits articulation of the head, no look up or down movements.

    2. Shoulder.

    Many of the owners have been complaining about the shoulder problem ever since the figure came out. Yes, I hate the shoulder design, too. The problem is the gap in his chest is too wide which does not allow the shoulder piece attach on the peg behind the front chest part. Yes, you can fix it, but this mold is a pain in the butt.

    After watching a few YouTube reviews, I have confirmed there are two certain ways to fix it.
    a. Trim down both chest pieces. Yes, you have to take off 5 screws on his back and use sand paper or sand block to trim down the connect points which will decrease the distance between the chest pieces. However, I found this way is very hard to have a precise sand job. It seems that all these figures do not have same chest gaps. Left and right will be different as well. so you will have to put chest pieces back together after trimming to make sure it is working. Very time consuming! And, BE CAREFUL! Don’t trim too much otherwise you will not be able to transform it back to vehicle mode.

    b. Add a support piece on the back chest piece to kind push the shoulder assembly into place. I found this way is not that easier than option a, but you don’t have risk of ruining the whole thing. First, you want put the shoulder in place and push it against front chest so you will have an idea of how big the gap to back chest piece will be, then find material to stick onto the back chest piece and fill the gap. Now, on my figure, I found the gap on left shoulder was about disk thick, then a credit card size fit to the right shoulder. Then, do the cutting and stick the piece on. I did not want permanent cohesive. So I used those Command 3M strips. Of course, if you want make it nicer, you can actually paint the support pieces. I just used Sharpie. It works for me.

    3. Cannon

    The cannon is locked by two small dots on the inside of that connecting piece on his back. I have to warn you that those two dots are really easy to be worn off through transformation process. Later on, it will be lose and no way to be locked in place.

    PS: for those who knows Takara always provides better quality in these toys. Please be aware, they did not fix anything on this mold. Please do not waste you money for this particular figure. Now, I am not sure if they or Hasbro have done any improvement on the Doubledealer figure (I think they share same mold), but I hope so.

    Update 01-31-2014.

    I found two 3rd party upgrade kits will ultimately solve the head and shoulder problems. First one is Dr. Wu DW-P17. This kit is very hard to find, mostly you will have to find a international toy store in China to get it. Good quality. The kit comes with two G1 style guns, shoulder fix pieces and a new head with ball joint neck and nice light piping removable visor. If you find one from US seller, let me know.

    Second one is SXS A-03. Easy to get from BBTS or eaby. Price is about $30. (PRICY!!!) It comes with a smaller G1 style head with ball joint neck, light piping visor. To me, this head is more show accurate, however, you may find the yellow color on the helmet is little bit too bright. I like it since it looks better than the Dr. Wu one and fit in Jet nose better. The kit also come two shoulder support pieces, a bigger G1 style purple rifle and two missile pieces. I absolutely like the gun since its bigger with matching color. And the missile parts made this kit even awesome-r. Because you can peg them into the wholes under the wings in jet mode or on the side of the arms in tank mode, it makes the figure looks so much better in vehicle mode. If you think the price is ok, I strongly recommend you to buy this kit. You will not regret!

    One more tip for DoubleDealer potential buyers. No fix on anything! Come on, Hasbro!!!
