Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Air Raid Action FigureIf you've been keeping up on this line, Air Raid will most likely finish up your Superion. For this reason alone, it becomes an essential addition to your toy box because otherwise you're going to have a wonky looking commando team. To keep the flying Autobot motif, you'll probably want this one. It also helps that it's a fine toy, just like the others on the squad.

While this figure is mostly new parts, it shares engineering with Skydive. The transformation is similar, but the front of the lower legs is pretty much identical across the two figures. The joint in the torso which connects to Superion's torso is also pretty much the same, but odds are you won't notice this due to the unique paint job and the fact that dang near everything else is completely new. The black jet has a red and white robot mode, plus a white gun.

It's a plane! Transformation to jet is pretty much the same as all of the other jets on the squad. The nosecone moves back, the arms fold out, and the legs open up to expand. The plane is pretty much all new parts plus the large wings are jointed, giving it a little more to do than the other jets in this series. Deco is clean, with red, yellow, and silver on the wings plus silver-backed Autobot symbols. It looks really great! Granted, it's going to spend most of its time as an arm or a leg, but still, it's a fine jet mode.

As a robot, Air Raid looks fantastic - very similar to the original toy from nearly 30 years ago. His gun fits into his hand perfectly, and he sports more than a little bit of articulation. Most of this is necessary for his transformations, as getting the arms out of the way or allowing the combined robot to have a rotating joint or two makes all the difference. As an individual robot he has a lot of red and gold paint on some of the whitest white plastic I've ever seen, which means he's going to spend a lot of time in a dark closet so he stays that way. The head sculpt is quite nice and there's a tiny Autobrand on his right shoulder. Squint if you can't see it, because it is ridiculously tiny.

Transformation in to any of the four modes is a snap, and combining him with his brothers is a breeze. Compared to the Stunticons, this team is a walk in the park. Air Raid is a cinch to transform and this team turned out so well Hasbro has me on the hook for more Combiners for quite some time. I hope to see more interesting and fun versions of this toy. And by that, I mean G2 repaints. Hasbro put together something really special, so I hope those of you who think you might be interested in large combining robots make a beeline for the store and get them all now before they dry up and get expensive on the secondary market.
