Transforms from plane to tank to robot and back!


"Destroy first, think later."

Ability as Triple Changer to rapidly transform makes him one of the most dangerous Decepticons. Cruel sense of humor, loud-mouthed, belligerent, and brash. Flies at Mach 2.7, range 1500 miles, has heat-seeking concussion missiles as plane. As tank, has track-mounted cannon that fires explosive shells 3.5 miles. As robot has electron-scimitar and gyro-blaster rifle. Often gets stuck in mid-transformation.

Transformers Tech Specs

When we went to the Toys 'R' Us for our periodic Transformers fix one day, my brother got Blitzwing and I got Astrotrain. I think I got the better choice, because Blitzwing just looked so bizarre with his non-feet (made from the twin tails of the jet) and impossibly thick wings for an F-15. But I'll admit, his tank mode did look mighty cool. He and Astrotrain got about equal airtime in the cartoon, although only Astrotrain survived the movie unharmed (ha, ha).
