Mastermind Creations Cyclops New Robot Mode Images

The Mastermind Creations Cyclops prototype is on tour - with its first stop being Comic Ink in Dublin, CA. We've got a few new images of the robot mode for you to check out, courtesy of 2005 Boards member locidm. This is still very much a prototype piece, with some more details and joints to be added - but it is shaping up very well, and is said to be of a height with official Hasbro release Leader Transformers.

Stay tuned for more information and news, and perhaps a few more surprises as well!

awesome, simply awesome !! Thanks for the sharing man !! ^__^

Wow. The level of detail makes up for the slight lack of an engaging alt-mode (which is, obviously, not the manufacturer's choice).

Needs more purple, though.

(Gotta admit, I got excited by the word 'Dublin' and disappointed by the term 'Ca.')
xterry
Guy, this is just the pro-type, un-color one...and I agree need more purple...
Stepper
It looks like Submarine or Battleship
odeean
I definitely will buy this but it looks a bit fragile. We don't have enough ships in Transformers.

Bro, since this one is a protype, it's acturally a little bit fragile, but soon, it will come back with much much much better plastic.

I think this'll be my first third party figure.

This, except take out the words "I think". And then with the iGear Cosmos on the way...
Sol Fury
That is one fantastic looking boat-former. I'm very tempted!
General Magnus
Amazing Transformer! The level of detail is awesome and itīs gonna look awesome in the gray and purple combo from the comics.
metrotitan
rrrrghh.....every time I see new pics of this I want it a little more. Once its out, it will be hard to resist (especially since my HOS Prime needs a foil).
Matty
It's not even a question: I'm getting this.

The amount of detail on this thing is fantastic. I can't wait to see what the final color scheme is going to be.
Transbot90210
I don't know if I should smile and evil smile or cry when people buy their first 3rd party item. Why? Because it is just the beginning of getting hooked on premium plastic crack. lol But then again the 3rd party stuff is cool shit.

As for Cyclops? I was sold from the first announcement, so much so it made me by KMC.


SO Xterry, ready to share Cyclops' secret? Am I right? Is he goign to come with a little Ravage?
Gilgamesh
Boat altmodes are cool, and Ironclads are awesome, so...

Same here!
I'd have preferred an U-Boot for an alt-mode, but this one is still great...
Any idea how much this is going to cost?
Victorysabre
This is the only toy besides Matty Voltron I may buy next year.

Same waiting for VOltron here!
BTW this boat is quite slim vs the HOS concept.
CH@OS!
I'm itching for that Matty Voltron as well I just hope they treat it better then they are treating the Ghostbusters line.

Loving it so far, even if my wallet doesn't!
Optimus Prime
Can the next tour stop be my house? Permanently?

I have no doubt that the final version of this will be excellent, considering how good Annihilator turned out (KMA is the only reason I ended my embargo on 3rd party TFs). Cyclops is pretty much a guaranteed purchase for me...so bring on the price and release date!
ComicGuy89
It looks beautiful, but I shudder to think about the price. It will probably kill wallets!
xanthax
Gorgeous. I must have this. As with the Knight Morpher, I love all the rivets and panel details all over this guy.
Victorysabre
I got an annihilator awhile back and haven't regretted it once. The only reason Cyclops isn't "bought on sight" is that the first Commander version had so many issues they needed to work out for Annihilator. So I figure I'll wait to see if there are any bugs they need to get out of the mold. Plus, if the first version is G1 Purple, I'd rather wait for a possible "Shack-wave" grey version. I think it'd look for less out of place. I mean, as nice as the other versions of the KM-01 mold look, only Annihilator strikes me as looking like a real train.

Steam-punk Transformers all the way!
Sonscreen
BEAST is the only thing that comes to mind.
exomega255
That is stunningly beautiful.
SMOG
This looks pretty frickin' amazing.

And expensive...

Thank you 3rd Party.

Yeah, shoddy QC and all-purple would be a deal breaker for me, too. Hopefully that won't happen though and the HoS colorscheme the main version instead of a variant.
crewboy7
If what I've heard is true that this may be around the $100 mark... This will almost certainly be my first 3rd party figure. And I've never even been tempted by any other 3rd party figure before!
Hosta
if anyone's in Dublin at the time! could they please take a video of this beast & post it on youtube. I wouldn't mind seeing a video of it.

1) Ironclads are cool. Shockwave is cool (despite some of the comics trying to screw him up in recent years) so double win there then.

2) Steam Trains are all sorts of colours red is far from unusual anyone who thinks all steam trains are black needs to go play with google image a bit more.
(That said ; I can't say i've seen many Purple Steam Trains like the 3rd version or white like the 4th - but I can assure anyone that red is not a weird colour at all for a 19th Century Steam Train).

3) A submarine might make a fun alt mode if say someone wanted to make modern era Gobots where you take a small Gobot sub and DX it up so it's a bit bigger than a Dlx Transformer - that might be quite fun as Gobots are afflicted to Transformers Characters after all now and it means if you wanted to make a space shuttle then it does not have to be Astrotrain or Blast off it could be a Gobot.
(That said the original Gobot DX Spaceshuttle is excellent anyway so might not need updating but then most of the later DLX Gobot are far better engineered toys than may similar sized G1 Transformers are anyway... Not sure if America got all the much better later in the line mid-eighties Robo-Machines/Machine-Robos though.

4) If I have the money handy when he's out I'll be buying him.
influence82
Any confirmation on retail price? Mastermind is probably soliciting fan feedback so they can improve the toy as they develop this.
skiss
So ready for this

I will be doing another gallery and a video that will be on our Facebook page (shameless plug )

For anyone local we will be having a sale on all TFs in the store that weekend (and I'll be digging into many boxes pricing this week so there will be a LOT of new stuff come Saturday!) and if the cards all fall in place the way I'm HOPING they will we'll be making a MAJOR announcement that weekend that is going to make front page news...probably a few times...about a store exclusive!! and with some store exclusive PIECES molded for it!!!

Were you never taught that secrets are rude?

If you can share, will this store exclusive be available to those of us in cyberspace or will it only be available to those that physically shop at your store?
Dread_Wing
I hope this first version is their 'shack-wave' repaint. That way when it comes out with QC problems they can fix them for the purple version. It looks awesome, but I really want to see a subdued purple-grey with a yellow eye.

it will most definately be made available to those in cyberspace! As much as I'd love for all of you to be able to shop in my store I know 95% of the fanbase just doesn't live here...we're certainly worth the trip though All secrets shall be revealed once I have all the t's crossed and the i's dotted...but I guarantee it will be worth the wait! We're not talking something small




Another special thing we'll be doing for the weekend (and from yesterday all the way through the 19th) is Toys For Tots! We are not only an official Toys For Tots drop off location but for every 2 toys purchased we donate a 3rd on your behalf!

This looks amazing. The robot mode looks great, and I love the vehicle mode. Too bad I'll never be able to afford it.

it's a long way off from being on sale dude! but i know what your getting at, it'll prob cost a small country, when it does became avaliable for sale.
Snake_eyes1975
MAN!!! WOW! that looks awesome...

I wish Hasbro made more TFs through history...not that THAT is accurate..but real cool. One of the reasons i LOVE rotf Ransack
djjetstorm
I have been waiting for a year to see what they will make next on the HOS series. This is totally awesome and I can't wait for it to hit the market!

BTW found a great rendering on there website.

xterry
May have some robot mode pic update soon......
hardreturn
just give me a place to give them my money. that is all i ask.

also: need their screamer remake.
harrismonkey
Still waiting for final pictures to make up my mind, but this is the first 3rd party since I got Springer (defender) that I have a strong feeling I'll probably pick up. This is looking very promising!
