Thanks for the review Vangelus! Didn't think I could get MORE excited for this guy.
Thanks guys. He really is a pretty awesome figure. I'll see if I can do a quick robot>boat video.
In light of the most-often-asked question about Cyclops, I've uploaded a new video and added it to the OP.
Well, I'm sold. Two days ago I didn't even know this existed, and now I've gone and canceled my Bruticus plans.
Cyclops is paid for and on his way.
Wow to Part C OMG..........this man......was down. I hope that answered everyone's question.
Man... Science thanks you.
I wonder... Can it float on something thicker like syrup or marinara sauce? What if you partially embed it in a container of Vaseline? Will that mimic the look of floating on water?
It will float for sure on lava. That stuff is dense as balls. Does it hold together long enough before collapsing into ashes to enjoy it floating on the lava?
I am pretty sure KM commander can float on lava too. And Hercules can walk on that with no problem.
mmm maybe if you add some foam into hollow parts of the underside , it will float, however i highly doubt that anyone want to do this.....ho wait..you did
Too big and obscure for me to want to purchase. Very nice molding on this thing though and watching the video in hd really shows off the amount of detail on this thing. So I do commend Mastermind Creations on their work. Just too pricey.
Great review as always, I'm definitely getting one of these as it's effectively a Masterpiece version of Hearts of Steel Shockwave.
As official TF's seem to be shrinking it's great to see MMC have had the balls to make the main bot such a beast and the little guy is suprisingly complex too.
I also think the color scheme is outstanding, the metallic tones really make both figures pop and it's easily the best looking 3rd party figure in that regard.
I think MMC were restricted by the constraints of the comic design as far as the arm articulation goes so I'll cut them some slack for that as the overall piece is so good.
Got mine this morning, no breakage whatsoever. Good thing I watched Peaugh's video yesterday to guide me. The only difficult part was moving up the ankle guards and now that I know how, it's going to be easy.
One thing though that I'm not sure I understand well: the right arm has a clicky joint at the elbow yet the forearm is attached to a secondary piece that is kinda free to dangle. What do I need to do to take advantage of the clicky joint?
Awesome, looks like a great figure!
I know a lot of people have been complaining about price, but he is a figure of MP quality and build. He is bigger than mp grimlock and about 20 bucks cheaper than the recent re-issue (179.99? if I remember correctly) and the same for the recent mp11. It's totally justified in my book, but that's just my opinion.
^Especially for a toy that has a more limited release than a regular MP figure.
I wouldn't say the quality is Takara-like, but it's pretty damn close. At least the finish and the detailing are.
I have to say this guy is very impressive looking. Though I won't be buying it due to lack of interest in HOS stuff, this review gets me really excited for their Sixshot. However, this review does worry me that maybe his design will have some problems with transformation. No third party product is without it's flaws of course, I just hope MMC can make Sixshot without giving us any possible scary breakage points.
Ohh and of course this goes without saying, awesome review Vangelus. Never planned to buy this product, but your review is spectacular. In all seriousness, your reviews are the most professionally done and give the best insightful opinions and overall outlooks of the products. Good show chap!
haha @ part C. Well done Vangelus, well done. We all knew that thing would sink...right?
If it doesn't float I'm gonna cancel my order. What about the HOS Starscream? If that thing doesn't fly I'm cancelling that order too (!)
i dont disagree with the price at all. given what this thing actually is i believe the price to be very fair. my own personal feelings are that it is a transformer from a series that i cared very little about and had no real like for the asthetics and designs of the bots. so its just too pricey for me. mmc does deserve credit for taking a chance and making a very nice looking toy.
You sir, have courage, cause there is no ?#@!ing way I'm dunking my cyclops in the water to see if it floats. By the way, great review!
Wow, someone legitimately tested it out to see if it would float? Wasn't expecting that.
