First Look – Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Superion Review

Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Superion 01

Hasbro’s Combiner Wars Superion figure is the gestalt combined form of the Aerialbots, Autobot characters based on Transformers Generation 1. The characters all can transform from aircrafts such as planes and helicopters and are the rivals to the Deceptions Stunticons and their combined form Menasor.

You will need the following figures to build Superion:

  • Powerglide (gun)
  • Skydive
  • Alpha Bravo (Slingshot)
  • Firefly (Fireflight)
  • Air Raid
  • Silverbolt (torso and head)
  • Quickslinger (optional right leg)

Thank you to Hasbro for sending along the figures needed to build Superion to us for a first look and review.

Sculpt:

In combined form, Superion stands at just over 12″ tall and includes the limbs of five Transformers figures with Powerglide as his gun. With Silverbolt becoming the torso and head, Skydive, Alpha Bravo (Slingshot), Firefly (Fireflight), and Air Raid become his limbs and you can transform them into an arm or a leg if you wish.

The sculpt itself is pretty stable, with all limbs sliding into place and the hands and feet are made up of accessories that come with the individual figures. The elbows are hinged if you swivel the figures arms 45 degrees to use the hinged joints, as seen on the individual figures legs. Powerglide’s landing gear becomes the peg that slides into the hole in Superions hand so that Superion can hold the weapon, as Superion’s fingers cannot hold it in place.

Accessories:

Combiner gun (Powerglide figure)

Overall:

Superion is an excellent figure with a great G1 likeness and the massive size and attention to detail and sculpt on him is just incredible.

Highly Recommended.
