I think one of my favorite aspects of Transformers is that there is just so many out there that I feel like I have an infinite amount of old toys to choose from when I get a hankering for something "new". Weather it's a G1 toy that I'm handling for the first time or something from a more recent line that I passed on but am now seeing in a new light, I sometimes like the rediscovery better than the newness of picking something fresh of the shelf. Today my rediscovery is G1 Cyclonus. I remember handling him very briefly as a kid during one of those many moments when someone in the playground would pull a Transformer out of his bag just long enough for us to pass him around and go "woooow!" I only got to hold him long enough to pass him to the next person, and when someone asked to transform him the kid hastily put Cyclonus back in his bag. And that's all I ever saw of that toy until today. Why I never got around to picking him up until now is something I can't say for sure. Maybe I always felt the price was a little too high, maybe I was waiting for a reissue, maybe I just simply never got around to it due to all the new stuff. In any case, since I'm not riding the ROTF train, I've had lots of extra time and money to throw into the time machine. Anyway, G1 Cyclonus. Wow. This is an amazing toy to me. I had no idea he had so much articulation. Yes, it's impossible to put him into a pose that doesn't look 'stiff', but it is very impressive for a G1 toy. Shoulders, elbows, arm swivels, hips that are individually articulated (clicky joints!) and bend 90 degrees for a sitting pose, knees. I know not all G1 toys are bricks, but for some reason I always assumed Cyclonus was. He's quickly jumped up to my #2 favorite G1 toy, right next to Soundwave who has been my favorite since 1985. So who else has been pleasently surprised by older toys that are new to you?
