ALTERNATE MODE

Sky Fly turns into a jet and that's about all I'm prepared to venture. The rough layout of the rear end vaguely echoes an F-18 Hornet but the fuselage is very, very fat. If anyone ever works out what Broadside's jet mode was meant to be it might be one of those. It's probably best to think of it as some sort of transport shuttle that just happens to have the occasional feature nicked off a jet fighter. His bio suggests he's meant to be high level reconnaissance plane.

Whatever he is it's ugly, just a chubby thing that looks like it could never fly. The blue/grey scheme is very uninspiring to boot and he's the only Wendy's figure I can't say anything particularly positive about.


ROBOT MODE

Sky Fly reuses elements of the transformations of Beamer and Pow Wow but sadly not the good bits. He's got the same outward-moving arms as the Renegade and the same mid-mounted head as his fellow Guardian; not a bad combination in theory but in practice the shoulders are mounted alongside his head and look ridiculous.

The colours just don't come off either and four screws eat up most of the relatively small area devoted to the robot. The post that acts as an ersatz nose wheel further eats up space and the result is he looks even more half-arsed than the rest of the Wendy's toys.


SUMMARY

Sky Fly really has the look of an 11th hour toy to him even by the myriad constraints of making a cheap sturdy transforming figure to be given away at fast food restaurants. He's too inept to have any sort of charm and is by far the least essential of the Wendy's toys.
