    Another awesome review. Gotta admit, I'm very bummed he's so tiny, like Galvatron...
    What was hasbro thinking? this is a space JET, it should be voyager or ultra class.

    I was really on the fence with this one just because I'm not that big on the season 3 guys, and my hatred for the new Galvatron toy didn't help matters, but you've definitely sold me. What a neat transformation.

    Great review, thanks.

    Man, it's too bad he's a deluxe. But he looks awesome. An easy buy for me.

    Nice video. His transformation looks pretty darn good. Still a shame about the colours though, they still look horrible to me (for starters, the lighter creamy-white-grey and the darker grey together look like yellowing or something).

    Well, some definite paint discrepancies on this and hound. However, I'd still think that these are pre-production versions, so the final paints might be better (via Hasbro's Q&A).

    He's got some small biceps and thighs, eh?

    Do the knees bend? Waist rotate?

    On a side who would buy a Target Master Rodimus if they simply re-released him with a TM buddy? Sort of like TFA Prowl

    Nice review. Your reviews are by far my favorite video reviews to watch. Concise, informative, and confident.

    Cyclonus looks fantastic, and his transformation looks like a blast. Lots of satisfying "clicks" in there, and from the looks of it he is essentially kibble-free! It makes for a nice sleek robot mode.

    A little disappointed that Nightstick doesn't have a smidge more articulation, but it's a small complaint. I'm sure he'll mostly just stay in weapon mode in my display anyway.

    Thanks for the review!

    I have been looking forward to this ever since they announced classics/universe. My favorite G1 character.

    Waist is fixed, but the knees do bend.

    another great review- your's are always very balanced, very fair and smooth with the transformations, no fumbling around going "uh, uh" ... for the next could you show off the articulation a bit more... I like to know exactly where a fig can bend or rotate and to what degree
