    Thats a really nice figure! I think it works much better if I think of it as a Shattered Glass Cyclonus though.

    I'm telling you, it still looks like Cyclounus from that episode where they all go through the black hole and turn different colors. DO NOT WANT

    That doesn't look all that bad and is at least looks much better than the 1st preview pics.

    I'd actually want it if they made it up to look like negaverse Cyclonus. At least it would have some relevance.

    Looking better than the first pics.

    I don't know who he'll be though, still doesn't say Strafe to me. Got a while to think about it till he arrives I suppose.

    It is a crazy color repaint which will work well in Animated like Target Sunstorm but not really with Henkei/Classics.

    Heh. Looks better then before that's for sure. Still looks like Cyclonus tried to cosplay as Strafe, but considering that we're probably never going to get an actual Classics/Universe Strafe anytime soon (I can't imagine he's anywhere high up on Hasbro's 'to do list' for Universe/Classics 3.0) I'll take what I can get.

    Nope. This is what Cyclonus looked like:

    And on that note, if Universe Cyclonus ever gets repainted that way, FansProjects might have to to a Commander trailer in Negative colors too. :D

    i've got one on preorder, but now i'm thinking i might cancel it...it looks so much like cyclonus that i just can't get over it...i'd rather use energon skyblast as strafe i think... maybe if this was a general release, but i just don't think i can justify the 110 on a repaint that only sort of works...

    I can understand folks not liking him as Strafe, but I love him just as a stand-alone figure. I'm glad the gun is more of a matte bronze than the chrome gold shown previously; I hope this is the released version. It's cool seeing blue eyes on this mold, as well. And while he's not identical to the Hotrod-colored SG Cyclonus from the Botcon comic, he would still make a pretty great SG Cyclonus. I might do that... slap a red 'Con symbol on him. I doubt the mold will ever be released in exact comic colors, so this is likely the closest we'll get.

    Although honestly, more than anything else I get a Minerva vibe from him (minus the orange face).
