Dreadwing gets shrunk! but will it blend ? well probably yeah but we want to know if its any good. The answer to this question is surprisingly yes, don't get me wrong I find it weird he suddenly has chicken feet and the wings of a lovely butterfly but for a deluxe it kinda works. He is a nice chunky solid toy with some good articulation including a variety of ball joints but no waist swivel. He has 2 weapons in the form of an axe and a hand held rocket launcher with 2 missiles both of which combine with one another into a larger staff type weapon which is kinda pointless but fun. Jet mode again is nice and chunky, the rocket launcher mounts on the cockpit roof and the axe can mount on the underside which does look a little naff with the chicken feet also visible from the back. Transformation wise its simple, think Generations Thunderwing and your there, this aside I really have enjoyed this toy a lot more than some of the previous Beast Hunters releases.
Overall we score Dreadwing a solid 7.5/10

It fits the aesthetic theme of the retooled Decepticons that's supposed to make them loosely fit with the Predacons - Dreadwing & Soundwave are birds of prey (exploiting Soundwave's articulated beak, even), Knockout is an alligator, and Shockwave is a one-eyed feline monstrosity. Starscream is the one that drops the ball, not looking like any animal in particular in spite of his BW Airrazor homage paint job.
