    The friggin toy has chrome?!!?!?!?!!? How amazing is that??? The tfc has really outdone themselves this year with a good freebie and two stupendous exclusive! Hopefully botcon will be equally as breath taking. I love the scheme of Cyclonus and Nightstick. Fantastic. If you would like to see it click on the link:

    I'd put money on that being photoshopped and not an actual painted figure.

    Doesn't look chromed to me, which is good because chrome sucks >_>

    That said, eh...colors are better than Strafe at least. And that Nightstick would look good with Rodimus.

    I agree with Kusanagi. The detail in the photoshop work makes it look like that.

    Uh...that's almost certainly a photoshop job. Plus where is the chrome you claim is in it? I see no chrome.

    Also, the freebie toy was also annouced LONG ago: It's Elite Guard Dion (a.k.a. Classics Hot Shot with orange/blue deco and the guns)

    EDIT: Just checked the OTFCC site, turns out that while SG Cyclonus is NOT the freebie, he IS the second club exclusive toy along with the Punch/Counterpunch.

    That means you have to buy him, even if you are a member.

    Also, closer inspection of the photoshop job yields more evidence that it is just a mock-up (outside of the fact the word "mock" is in the picture URL and that it's clearly stated as such on the OTFCC main page): there are several parts on Cyclonus that are the same shade of plastic on the original Universe toy.

    I don't even think it's the detail of the photoshop job. I think it was just skillfully color-replaced. Example:

    I did it for a thread Optimus Scourge* (I think... pretty certain*) had posted about a good "Batman" TF.

    A lot of posts were about Cyb. Megatron being a Batmobile or Ani. Blurr... So I did this up in 10 minutes.


    *Did I say Optimus Scourge? I meant Optimus Sledge. Darn all you with such similar names.
