First Look – Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Quickslinger Review

Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Quickslinger 01

Hasbro will be releasing Quickslinger and Break-Neck online on May 22nd, 2015 as part of their May Mayhem monthly event. Quickslinger is based on the Generation 1 character Slingshot and is the 5th piece that you need to build Superion, the combined form for the Aerialbots. Quickslinger becomes the right leg for Superion, or an arm if you choose.

Make sure to check back shortly for a look at Superion in his combined form!

Thank you to Hasbro for sending along Quickslinger to us for a first look and review.

Sculpt & Paint:

Quickslinger uses shared parts with other Aerialbots and converts from a plane into a robot, and can also transform into either an arm or a leg for Superion. In robot mode, Quickslinger uses the standard Generations Classics articulation that fans are used too, and has a white, black, red, gold, and silver color scheme that fits in G1 Slingshot. On the upper left side of his chest, he has an Autobot symbol in silver. In vehicle mode, Quickslinger can transform into a plane with a white, blue, black, red, silver, and orange color scheme and can also hold both blasters under his wings. The wings are hinged and can be lifted or lowered, and there is also landing gear under the nose.

Accessories:

Blaster, large double-blaster (bottom of foot/piece of the arm for Superion).

Overall:

Quickslinger is an excellent figure with a great G1 likeness to Slingshot.

Highly Recommended.
