Fall of Cybertron Air Raid Alternate Interpretation
I love when TransFans purposely mis-transform a figure to make it look better, or simply make it look different from a repaint that it came from. Such is the case with Fall of Cybertron Air Raid. He is a repaint of FOC Shockwave. Hasbro did make some minor mold changes to make the two figures distinct. However, their alt modes still look very similar. Fans have come up with alternate ways to transform the figure to give Air Raid a distinctive look.
First let’s look at the official alt mode configuration.
Now let’s look at an alternative way to transform this figure to its jet mode. Gemini showed me this interpretation.
I like this alternate configuration quite a bit. I think it looks just as good as the official form, if not better. At the very least, it differentiates Air Raid from Shockwave a tad more.
Transform and Roll Out.
