Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion Class Blight Part 1

A forgotten beast

I don't have any idea on how to follow up after the review of Master Grade Sinanju Ver. Ka, but by casually bringing up Keropla God Keron at the beginning of that final posting reminded me of another combiner robot-type review series that is still ongoing, one which I pretty much forgot about after the first figure. ^^;

"Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters" Cyberverse Legion Class Blight
Production company: Hasbro
Release date: July 2013
Price: US$5.99

As one of the five Predacon figures to form Abominus, Blight is the second one to be reviewed, after Twinstrike in early October last year. ^^ By default configuration, Blight forms Abominus's left leg. However, the connecting pegs and slots are designed to allow the figures, all except Hun-Gurrr, to be swapped around as different limbs on the final combiner robot, so depending on your liking, Blight can become the right arm on Abominus. ^^ You can even get multiple figures of Blight to form an Abominus with the blue midget Godzilla as all of its limbs. XD

Front view of the blister pack.

The figure can be seen very easily and clearly through the clear shell.

The name of the character and its role among the Predacon members are shown on the cardboard label.

Closeups on the details.

The instruction sheet at the bottom of the shell.

Image of Predaking, leader of the Predacon legion in dragon mode on the left hand side of the card.

Side views of the package.

Stats of Blight on the package's right hand side.

Top and bottom views of the package.

A super brief introduction of the character, as well as images of the figure in robot and beast modes on the back of the package.

A quick comparison with Twinstrike from the same figure series in robot mode.

The package is carefully cut from its side in order for the content to be removed.

Rear view of the tray.

The folded instruction sheet on Blight's transformation.

Much like the instruction sheet of Twinstrike, a one-way transformation sequence is shown for Blight.

The complete backdrop with the remaining edges of the cut plastic cover removed.

The cardboard label for the top, side and bottom faces of the plastic container.

A straight-out-of-box display of "Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters" Cyberverse Legion Class Blight.

Blight's designated handheld weapon in robot mode, Affliction Hammer.

It's the exact same hammer used by Twinstrike, albeit molded in a darker shade of gray, and having a different name of course (the one used by Twinstrike is called Piston Hammer). ^^

More images of Blight in robot mode, and its articulation design coming up in the next posting. ^^
