    Thanks for the review. I think it'd be neat to have as a novelty, but still, never in a million years does it make for an acceptable Strafe. Cyclonus' body is just too distinctive. I don't know how desirable it'd be but I wish they could've tried something else more relevant to the mold, like a Killing Jar Cyclonus.

    Thanks for that review. I'm anxious for him. The mold is too awesome not to own every version of

    Glad to hear some people are digging him. I think I paid $75 shipped so that helps to. No way would I pay $120 or whatever people are asking for him now.

    I've got to make a serious effort to get this guy. I know I will regret it if I don't.

    Nice review. The mold is only good for cyclonus though, kind exclusive imo.

    I'd like to have it but it's pretty ugly honestly.

    To bad about the orange it would have looked pretty nice otherwise.

    I got my Strafe on Friday from Bodhar. Didn't want to open him up until I saw someone else's Targetmaster to make sure if it was the same. Here are some package comparison pics to Henkei Cyclonus.

    great review Flywheels. The Cyclonus mold actually looks really good in those colors.

    Energon Slugslinger (with a new head) would have made more sense for Strafe, but it kinda works and it's a homage we havn't seen before plus the exclusive and expensive nature of the figure do make it cool, also the Targetmaster looks great in those colours. Ringers crossed for Ricochet and Artfire.

    Thanks for the comparison pics Jason. I did the review @ work literally minutes after I opened it up so I did have Cyclonus on hand to include in the pics.
