    Did a search and saw too many strung out threads. Thought I'd start an official chat thread for this figure. I for one am very excited about this and can't wait to review it. For me personally, the quality of this will be the deciding factor on whether or not I purchase the seekers coming up after this one.

    I hope he's released soon! I can't wait! He's my first 3rd party product.

    While I'm not interested in this figure on account of... not having the money for a figure I can't really fit anywhere in my collection...

    But I've seen the pictures. Wow. This thing looks FANTASTIC.

    As I say in every cyclops thread:
    I love the mold but have no need for a giant weird shockwave
    Give me a tidal wave repaint with a new head and I'll buy

    After reading about some of the QC issues with Knight Morpher I've decided to wait until some in hand reports are in before pulling the trigger.

    If it's good I'll likely get the Seekers as well and maybe go back and take a chance with Prime as I really like the Hearts of Steel designs....anyone know if MMC are planning to make Bumblebee or Megatron?

    My assistant asked them about Bumblebee at the Third Party at BotCon, and was told it was not out of the question, though it doesn't seem to be in development right now. It will depend on this and Air Screech doing well, no doubt.

    From what I've seen Cyclops looks like a kickass figure, but I'm holding onto my cash until I see some video reviews on him.

    I agree. I have Annihilator and it is pretty good but I'm worried how the plastic will do when the bot is that large. If it is a big floppy mess, I'll pass on it. Gonna wait for reviews though before I jump on this one.

    I'd love to see a bumblebee, hell, I'd pretty much buy any of the HoS figures that are released, pending Cyclops being impressive.

    Got to watch this get transformed from robot mode to boat mode at Botcon, got some good vibes about the strength of its thinner panels. Dude who was transforming it kind of went at locking those together with a bit of strength, and they didn't shred apart. :D  Hopefully that's indicative of a decent durability for its intricate assembly.

    I'm really hoping this arrives after next Thursday, because that's when I get paid next! I am very curious to see if any reviews come out right before or coinciding with its release to online retailers, though I remember what Vangelus said on the podcast and that increased my hope that the QC on this will be fine.

    This thing is due out in May correct? Any word for our e-retailer representatives of shipments?

    Honestly, I'm not big on "Must have this kind of transformation for me to enjoy!" shit, but I think the transformation on THAT video sold me. The sequence just wreaks of the big, massive, ship that he is.

    Yup, ETA's been given as May but no further specifics regarding when (early, mid or late May). Unless MMC says something about shipments heading out, it may just pop up one day at Robot Kingdom or something.

    Just curious to see, thank you for the response. I have this figure on pre-order right now, but I'm hoping the timing is right and I'll have the funds in a few weeks.

    That figure is one "got it and it rocks!" review from being on my
    "Must buy" list.
