    HFTD 2010 Deluxe Tomahawk looks like a updated armada Cyclonus toy.

    it's got the exact colors.
    the exact alt mode.
    similar robot designs.
    the inner face looks more human.

    did anyone else see the similarities between both toys.

    IMO,Hasbro/takara should have named this toy armada cyclonus.

    I think most people thought that when they saw the toy, I didn't because I don't know a great deal about Armada

    Also, I think the similarities end at the orientation of some of the helicopter bits in robot mode. Beyond that they look completely different.

    Uh...no. Barely any maroon, not nearly enough gold, not really enough white and a completely different shade of blue.

    Same kind of alt mode (a helicopter), yes. Completely different models of helicopters, though.

    Chunky, goofy-lookin' robot with the helicopter cockpit facing forward, the tail hangin' off his arse and missiles on his arms.

    vs

    Slim, trim robot with the helicopter cockpit facing downward, the tail on his arms as pincer weapons and missles over his shoulders with the option to be held in his hands.

    Huh.

    And so does, what, three-quarters of TF heads? Besides, the helmets are completely different shapes.

    Gotta say, not really seeing the resemblance, sparky. I'll give you the legs being on the underside of the 'copter and the chest being the cockpit with two vents either side. That's it. Tomahawk doesn't even have a tank to violate.

    While the mold could be repainted into a great update of Armada Cyclonus, he's definitely not colored like him as-is.

    My hand looks a whole hell of a lot like my foot. Biologists should have just gone ahead and called them "hands" because feet are totally a homage to hands.

    LOL!

    I must be color blind because my Tomahawk is black with some gold accents and clear yellow windows. I thought Cyclonus was blue.

    To me, Tomahawk looks like Cybertron Crosswise decided to get a new alt mode.

    Here, I grabbed these from resources.

    There aren't any paint apps that are the same. Cyclonus doesn't have shoulder missiles. Besides having a helicopter as an alt mode, I'm just not seeing it.

    Yeah, the orientation of some of the helicopter bits is similar, but other than that they're completely different.

    Let's just say that it would look nice in Armada Cyclonus' colors.

    ok, i can sorta see the general similiarities raised wings with arms underneath, cockpit on chest, legs kinds skinny and bulky on bottom..i could see a slight retool to make him cycl.....
    but i think they would choose a newer mold (other than tom) thats more menacing and strong looking

    If the argument was "Tomahawk could make for a great update on Armada Cyclonus as a repaint/remold," I could see that.

    Since the argument is somewhat reversed ("Tomahawk is an homage to Armada Cyclonus" when there is no resemblance)...um, no. They'd only look alike to me if I looked at them while drunk or visually impaired in some way from very far away...and probably in a dark room so I didn't notice the difference in color either.
