    I actually think his face looks great. Keep in mind we're looking at an uncolored prototype that's uniform in color. The inner part of the helmet (around his face) is supposed to be a darker color than the rest of the helmet and gives the illusion of depth that we're not getting with a flat gray everything. Once we see a painted copy, I suspect he'll look a lot better.

    You know, I'd love for one of these 3P Cyclonus figures to get a repaint in Dirge colors, like this:

    A concern I have is that since this will be released on the PF sub-line it may not have the standard FT heft we've come to expect.

    I admit, I'm an FT fanboy but for some reason, I am liking the XTB version of this better and I don't even have him. Don't know y

    Don't be a fanboy... :) 

    XTB looks good, I have him, but his QC leaves much to be desired...

    I personally like this version better!

    Yup, but of a Benedict Arnold or George Washington look. I think that’s my main gripe and I couldn’t figure it out before. I really wanted to get this one but finally caved and got xtb version which I like the looks, not so much the transformation

    If it’s coming reasonably soon enough,
    maybe wait for the chance to see comparisons. I recently purchased eligos and Im not really overwhelmed. like insectabot above, Ive read the transformation is remarkably unenjoyable, despite a sleek and streamlined altmode.
    I’ve also read of stressmarks and permanent looseness occurring as a result of transformation, so nah, it’s just not worth it to me to transform him. He’s fine just looking exactly like cyclonus, which he does very well.
    Also, relatively low playability, lower than the sweeps. He can essentially stand there doing different things with his head/hands with both feet planted.
    ...which, admittedly, is what I remember him prettty much doing. So he serves my purpose, not sure if he’ll serve yours.
