New Age Toys’ Air Commander Lucifer (aka G1 Starscream) has arrived at Junkion HQ!
The box is another Diaclone homage, this time to the F-15 Jetrobo.
Inside the box you’ll find two sets of instructions; a generic “Stormtrooper” set for the figure and one for the Spacebridge stand (which is covered in a separate post). For accessories you’ll find the stand, 2x cannons, open hands, pointed hands, 2x small blast effects, 2x engine blast effects, 2x bombs and Agamenmnon in pistol mode.
Lucifer’s robot mode is an impressive rendition of Starscream from the original cartoon.
Even the back is nice and clean!
You can also use the front landing gear as a wrist communicator.
Jet mode is equally impressive!
The effect parts in this release are two-tone. The jet blasts start as blue at the base and move to clear at the tips.
One thing to be aware of is that, due to the transformation joints in the tail fins, it is very easy to knock them out of alignment when handling the jet.
The robot chest inverts out of the underside of the cockpit…
…then flip out to form the chest…
…then everything folds up into the robot torso.
The outer edge of the robot legs pivots around…
…which positions the tail fins on the inside of the calf…
…so that they can be folded completely into the leg.
Lucifer is a head shorter than Agamenmnon.
Lucifer is also twice the height of Flipper.
Another impressive and fun addition to the Legendary Heroes line!
