    To each his own. Not really a fan of Deluxe or Voyager Cyclonus. They both have nice qualities. But they're both wrong as well.

    Voyager Cyclonus has better proportions in Bot mode and his space jet mode is alot more screen accurate. With that said, he has this "overweight" look to him as well.

    Deluxe Cyclonus has a small waist and really weird leg proportions. The legs overall look way too long. Especially the thighs. The space jet mode is nice but it isn't screen accurate at all. Especially when compared to the Voyager.

    This is just my honest opinion. Take it FWIW.

    Yeah I can see how neither is perfect per se. the deluxe for its age, is pretty good. I wouldnt mind having the voyager, but, money, ha. It seems having a chug collection is headed in the direction of most characters being deluxe unless otherwise having notable size, so I'll probably stay with the deluxe.

    For all the problem the G1 cartoon had with a scale and consistency Cyclonus was often selected as taller than Scourge and some times he was a bunny ear taller than Galvatron. Also what littel personality he got made him seem like even if he were average height he would have a commanding presence making him seem tall.

    I get that, but with the predominance of Targetmasters portrayed as Deluxes, it makes more sense to have Cyclonus fit in there. Even then, he pretty much towers over all the others.

    D'awww. Brawn and Bumblebee could easily transform and speed away but they're staying on foot and sticking with their beached buddy.

    Given that Unite Warriors Cylconus came out something like 5 weeks before Legends Galvatron, followed by Legends Scourge a month later, that's their trio.

    Continuing yesterday's theme of dodgy but brilliant TR Voyagers

    I feel like I'm never going to get the Alpha Trion I want. Perhaps I'm all the cliches of the hoary old G1'er that just wants things how he remembers them, but this guy just doesn't look a bit like any Alpha Trion I ever knew.

    That said, as a toy it's got a shedload of nutty charm. A lion that turns into a spaceship and a barbarian looking robot? Yeah, I mean that is cool. Definitely. There is a certain blocky inelegance to him that makes him stand quite apart from the other TR Voyagers, with his chest almost being an oversized square shoved onto dinky little limbs, but he kinda gets away with it.

    If I ever get around to owning one of these guys, it's going to be Alpha Trizer. It's colored like alpha trion and turns into a spaceship, but it looks more like an aged and wisened cheetor in robot mode and turns into a lion with a unicorn horn for some reason. All that said i'd rather have the Leo Prime from TT.

    You change the head to any of those new titan master heads we got, and suddenly this will feel like an awesome toy! A broadsword wielding autobot warrior with a LION mode as well as a space cruiser! He is so fantastic!

    Don't be let down because he doesn't look like Alpha Trion, make full use of TR's casual custom play pattern and make him The Bot of your Dreams!

    For me I get more of a sage, old samurai vibe as opposed to barbarian. Maybe it's the beard and the crown on his head that kinda reminds me of a samurai helmet. He's one of the few Voyagers I think looks better with the the head pylons up. It kinda enhances that samurai vibe. I always liked this Voyager. Definitely one of the more out there aesthetics of the line, but I think he pulls it off.
