Transformers Knock-Off - Air Raid

Another great little figure In the box of  toys Derek sent over recently,TF knock -off Air Raid!At first i thought this was one of those Quick Change Family Dollar joints,but after looking at the instructions,It seems that this Is indeed a legitimate,Transformers knock-off,If that makes any sense.It reminds me alot of the old Go-Bots figures,only lesser in the quality department.That's not to say that the figure is bad.In fact the only real knock against Air Raid would be his right arm,which Is a little loose.The rest of the joints hold up surprisingly well.He looks great In robot mode but shines In his alt mode.After messing around with him for a minute,It dawned on me that he was about the same scale as my Legends Class Optimus and Bumblebee.In fact,that's who I have chosen to display Air Raid with.I'm wondering If these are available locally?Enjoy the pics!










I've since removed his stickers to give a more legitimate look,and It really does look good!All I need to do now Is track down a small Autobot faction symbol decal,but even without It Air Raid looks great.

  1. Peeling those stickers off does a great job for his look. I found him in a 2 pack in a store called Tuesday Morning here in OH.

  2. Interesting stuff. I like the classification of a "legitimate knock-off". It sounds like it shouldn't work, but that makes total sense

  3. Just the sort of thing to boost the Cyberjet ranks.

    They're easily 3 of the best molds made at this size.
