Eagle Fighter

Piloted by Shinobu Fujiwara, the CBF’s hot-headed young leader, the Eagle Fighter is the smallest of Dancougar’s components.

It only has two modes; fighter and humanoid forms. Instead of a separate beast form, the Eagle has a bird-like design, making the fighter mode do for both. Given its small size, this isn’t really a surprise.

The toy of the Eagle is TINY, and very fragile. It’s not something you give to a child. However, as a display piece, it is impressive in its diminutiveness, and the fact it can transform into both a humanoid and Dancougar’s head, is impressive. On top of that, it even has its own rifle!

For display purposes, the Eagle comes with a small stand that plugs into the bottom of it. You can just make it out below the Eagle’s “talons” (i.e. hands) below.

From this angle, you can see that the Eagle Fighter looks both like a bird and a plane at the same time.

Yes, the aerodynamics are questionable on the Eagle, but it's so small and delicate that it doesn't really matter.

The Eagle Fighter transforms almost EXACTLY the way it does in the show! For anyone who had old Transformers, you know that was rarely the case!

Here is the Humanoid Form from the front. Note the rifle; it plugs in on a little post from the side of the arm. The big feet give the Eagle good stability in this form; those wings make the CoG very high indeed!

From behind, the Humanoid Form's tiny proportioning is evident. In the show, it wasn't this small, but then again, the animators could really play fast and loose with dimensions. The SoC can't!
