Bombardier is a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to Generation 1 Swoop made by JustIToys in 2008. Several limited edition recolors of this toy have been released.

JustIToys

Bombardier is an homage to 1985 Transformers Dinobot Swoop. He shares a similar toy design with Generation 1 Swoop, whose function was "Bombardier".

According to his tech specs Bombardier is extremely tough and very fast. He is also more courageous and skilled than average and packs a good amount of firepower.

Development

In October 2007 JustIToys put prototype images of Jungle Warrior and Bombardier on their web site.[1]

In January 2008 JustIToys released images of the finish Jungle Warrior and Bombardier toys.[2]

Promotional photos of the prototype for Solo Assault Group compared him to Bombardier Elf.[3]

Reprolabels has released a set of labels for this toy.

Reception

The TFWire podcast for April 30th, 2006 has a listener question asking if the hosts were picking up the WST Dinorobots. Spada planned to get the homages to Grimlock, Sludge and Swoop.[4]

The [email protected] podcast for June 10th, 2010 selected a picture of the Smallest Dinorobots Comic Version as one of the New Picture Picks.[5]

Fictional biography

The Dinorobots are a rowdy, arrogant, lowbrow, disobedient band of warriors that some of their allies would rather scrap than deal with. They're also one of the most devastatingly powerful and close-knit combat units in the army, being incredibly powerful in robot mode and taking alternate modes base on the dinosaurs, the most powerful creatures ever to roam the Earth.
