If Shockwave can get away with having a gun for a hand, I think it's unfair to attack Air Raid for his flail (which can fold up into an approximate hand, anyways).
Air Raid has a certain Prime
look to him, though I group him with Springer and the Sky Shadow-themed Powerglide (mostly because they're all green Autobot aircraft and roughly in-scale with each other):
Fun Fact: In real scale Springer and Powerglide would both be around 45 feet tall, while Air Raid would be around 95.
Hope we get more "themed" bots. Love guys gladiator Air Raid, samurai Bludgeon, WWII aviator Highbrow, etc..
