Remember how I said that Wave 4 was when it got good? Well it kind of hits a speed bump with this weeks subject.
As a jet he look pretty good but he does suffer from “Oh look robot kibble under a jet” syndrome.
As long as you look at him from above you're good. He doesn't show his PCC pegs quite so much in jet mode but they're still on show if you know where to look (again don't look at him form the side or bottom, just the top, OK?).
His head looks good it has orange light piping and he looks like a squished up Jhiaxus!
The shoulder wings and arms fold up to form, different shoulders, maybe.... Umm... Yeah.
It's safe to say I don't like the torso mode.
Something which I've only just now realised is how badly the shoulders hold up. Once you attach any limbs to them they want to sag. I fit weren't for the arms being pegged in the weight of the limb attached to the peg would pull them down. I knew there was a good reason why I don't put limbs on Skyhammer much. I've used Wave 4's Constructicons for the photo.
I'm fairly certain I've never really tried either of my third party limb sets on Skyhammer so as such these are my very raw thoughts on the matter.
Mobine makes his torso mode look even leggier than it already is. The arms just add more blocks to the figure. Blocks with clearance problems! It's not a good pairing unfortunately, moving on.
Shall we move on to Airlift?
There's some nicely sculpted detail on the figure, but really that's on par for the rest of the Mini-Cons in the PCC line.
To put it polity Skyhammer is a disappointment. Wave 4 started (for me any way) with SUCH a good figure in Heavy tread and then it went here with Skyhammer. It felt like a step back. Yeah disappointment is all I can say about him. At least Airlift has some good uses.
Well that's it for Wave 4's 2 packs, next week we BUILD on Wave 4's good toy streak and start to HAMMER home the really good toys.
Yeah it's Steamhammer and the Constructicons. Subtle hints right?
He sometimes takes epic trips to Newcastle, and tells tales of these sagas often.
When not watching people in spandex fight each other he paints miniatures, go HERE to take a look.
