    Just got this wonderful thing in the mail today, and noticed something:

    There are a few points on mine that don't line up all that spectacularly. Seriously, I'd be a touch worried if I didn't know that there was no KO Cyclonus mold. Past that, I lurvs him. Anybody else have these problems?

    Can you elaborate on "don't line up"?

    My experience with Cyclonus has been the leg halves only sort of align in jet mode, and the arms never really want to stay pegged into his legs.

    I can't even call him by that name. To me, he's "Candy Cyclonus"

    The Battle in Space version pegs together quite solidly, in my experience.

    It might be from the arms pivoting and throwing off the alignments with the leg peg holes.

    It could be because that color palette sucks, so the figure is depressingly rebelling against you.

    Agreed. Especially not a mold that is uniquely Cyclonus.

    One could say the same for Dragstrip, but I still love that repaint to death.


    And it's more of where the seams of parts meet. Like the seam in the front of the shin.
