Power of the Primes Blackwing
The second half of Dreadwing has arrived at Junkion HQ! Now Dreadwind won’t be lonely anymore.
My version of Blackwing came with a card for Megatronus Blackwing.
The robot mode is very close to the original and is very clearly “Darkwing” despite the copyright-inspired renaming.
As with Dreadwind, the armor mode is a bit awkward.
Blackwing is a remold of Combiner Wars Air Raid, which is a close match to the original.
Like with Dreadwind, the combiner hand can be used to replicate the G1 Powermaster feature.
Prime Master Integration
While I still don’t like the chest armor, it does look a little better with a Prime Master in place of the included plug.
Like the originals, the PotP versions can combine into a super jet mode. It’s not terribly stable since the two are held together by a single post. One interesting thing to note is that the instructions label this combination as Duocon Dreadwing.
The Combiner Limb
Like the other Deluxes in this line, Blackwing can also become a combiner limb.
The instructions say he goes with Hun-Gurrr but I’m not buying that. I just wish we had two more jets in the line to complete a Super-Seeker gestalt.
Power Masters United
One nice feature of the cover plates that these two come with is that they match closely with Titans Return Overlord and make passable stand-ins for the missing Giga and Mega.
