Weekly Robot- War for Cybertron: Earthrise Voyager WFC-E21 Decepticon Snapdragon
I always loved my original chonky Snapdragon figure (who is sadly missing most of his extra parts), so I was really happy when they released this new version. His jet mode is fantastic, you can't go wrong with a big dino with guns on his back, and the robot mode is pretty snazzy as well. Plus those colors? Chef's kiss. Leave it to the horrible robo-lizard-man to pull off purple, teal, black, translucent yellow, and off-white
Anytime you can get a triple-changer where all their modes are pretty solid is kind of a miracle, so we'll forgive that it can be a bit janky getting his headmaster to assume the right position for dino mode. Plus his transformations are pretty intuitive and fun to do, unlike some of the others where I forget how to transform immediately after I just switched their modes. His forearm kibble isn't the best as he looks a bit cluttered when trying to wield a gun, but it's not that bad in the long run.
Overall gotta give him a 9/10, he looks and handles great.
Also, just for fun, here's his original character bio from his G1 release:
"If it doesn't get you dirty, it's not worth doing."
Wading up to his neck in grease is his idea of a good time. Lazy, difficult to motivate, but has a hair-trigger temper. Binary bonded to Krunk, the vicious, vile bodyguard to the Nebulan leader, Lord Zarak. In jet Mode, maximum speed 8800mph... has 2 independent booster fins. In reptile Mode, carbon-steel claws and teeth can cut through almost anything. Has 2 balance destroying gyro-guns in robot Mode.
