I actually don't remember his gimmick very well. If its wrong, can somebody who does own him, or does know can edit his toy entry? Thanks --FFN 06:17, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Looks right to me. Sadly, my Blue Arrow's cannon broke a long while ago, but I'm reasonably sure that's accurate.--MCRG 06:39, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Deftwing was released in '92? I thought he and the other G1 toys that used the G2 symbols were all 1993 releases. The Hartman's old archive and TFU.info back this up. --FortMax 18:29, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

From TFU: Availability: This figure was available in Europe in 1992-1994. Plus, it was released in the European G1 box packaging, then repacked onto G2 cards. The Lightformers and Trakkons were released in the same assortments (and featured in the same catalogue) as the Oblitorators (Pyro and Clench), the Axcelerators, the Sky Scorchers, the Aquaspeeders and the Stormtroopers. --FFN 14:15, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
TFU's listing of the years doesn't make sense. you're right about Deftwing being listed as 1992 at tfu.info, and so is Ironfist, but the same site lists the two Trakkons as 1993 figures, and all four figures were part of the same case assortment, released in 1993 if tsarchive.com and TFA's Hasbro product code list are right. --FortMax 14:52, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
If only I could go back in time to find out... then I could make a mint by selling these toys to american collectors, as well as the G1-packaged classics reissues that were sold in Australia for no apparent reason. Crazy Hasbro. --FFN 14:57, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't have any idea if this is the case in this particular instance, but bear in mind that "Release Year" isn't reckoned the same by all fans. Some fans (I believe Rob Jung's list used to use this) will list a toy during the actual calendar year in which it was first found on shelves, whereas some fans (I believe this is the system tsarchive used to use; don't know about the case assortment page) will list a toy under its product year, meaning that even figures released in, say, December 2002 may be listed as 2003 product, because that's when they were solicited for and intended to be on shelves by Hasbro. As I said, I have no idea when the Lightformers came out in relation to the rest of the 1993 product, but my guess is that they are 1993-year product, which is how I personally feel things should be listed. (It's confusing to say, for example, that a toyline ran from year x to year z when only the first wave of basics was released in year x, and were sold to retailers for year y anyway.) -LV 16:00, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
I am most likely wrong, so I'll change it back to 1993. --FFN 18:26, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
