    That Cyclonus's face doesn't look so good but the rest of him is great so still a win. I don't really understand why they arbitrarily put a bunch of toys into the Studio Series line but then Cyclonus who debuted in the 86 movie is here but the Dinobots who didn't are in that one. Oh well at least it's an era of nice toys. Megatron and Ratrap both look good too; I haven't actually opened my T30 Ratrap so I don't know which I'll like better; the rat mode here looks more realistic vs the more cartoony one on T30.

    I mean I don't really care. I'm not interested in kingdom and 86 ss. I just thought its weird to be mixing movie characters into another line when they're making a line specifically for said character..

    That Cyclonus head isn\'t great, however it\'s inevitable we\'ll get an IDW upgrade head so it\'s not a huge deal.

    I agree...between Kup and Cyclonus, the faces are the parts that could use a little more tweaking. That said, I'm excited about these releases.

    I don't think the release schedule is necessarily arbitrary...Hot Rod, Kup, Scourge, Cyclonus...there seems to be a pattern here. :)  It's probably to coincide with the release of HasLab Unicron. It's gonna be a good 2021, not that 2020 set a high bar or anything...

    It would be amazing if they gave us an '86 UM and Galvy to continue this line.

    And last I heard, there are going to be larger G1-esque Dinobots, no? Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise, I would have preordered the upcoming Takara set, but I think HasTak is trying to get one more use out of those molds before giving us something better.

    I’ll end up getting them all I’m sure, but there is something off about that cyclones, maybe it’s the face?

    glad to see that it looks like the tail on megatron is removable and there’s a hand underneath.

    That Cyclonus is pure beauty, and it's great to see all you BW fans getting some much needed love!

    Seeing how amazing WFC has been, and since we've gotten almost all the G1 characters...

    ...I hope the next trilogy updates the AEC characters, or at least some of them. What I wouldn't give for a proper Antler Man Megatron as a Leader unencumbered by the need to balance gimmicks and articulation.

    Or a properly gigantic Commander class Tidal Wave.

    Maybe resurrect the Generations Selects Armada OP as part of it.

    AND CORE CLASS BACKSTOP, BABY

    I can't wait for an And His Armada repaint of Cyclonus to come out.
    Also, Hasbro still can't make up their minds about Bombshell and Skywarp. Just say he was mixed from them you cowards!

    Looks like Renderform is going to do it. I mean, he already did one for CW Cyclonus so it's just a matter of tweaking the size and balljoint.

    I am
    really involved in WFC as well and buy them all with view exceptions,
    but I do prefer video review of finished products after official good looking pictures are published and recently we had a ton of leaks while we are still looking for EARTHRISE WAVE 2

    the leaks arrived too soon in my view but these are not under control of hasbro or Chinese factories.

    Makes me think we may not see the same deluge of exclusives as we saw this year, as more can be released in the mainline.

    They said Skywarp was reformatted into Cyclonus and Bombshell was reformatted into the look alike

    That being said, I’d rather track down BotCon 2002 Cyclonus for my perfect version and PerfectEffect TM2 Megatron

    The main quote from Hasbro says:

    "CYCLONUS, a herald of UNICRON, first appears in the 1986 movie when BOMBSHELL/SKYWARP were reformatted into the second-in-command of GALVATRON."

    Pretty sure that's them saying either a) they aren't sure, or b) it's both

    I have MP BW Megs, so I don't really need the Siege version.
    However, I do not own any Cyclonus.
    I may actually get this version.

    "The mini-figure allows fans to collect a mini version of the iconic character to pose out with other RATTRAP toys at larger scales (each sold separately, subject to availability)!"

    That sounds suspicious, but it's probably a copy-paste-text from Optimus, Megatron and Starscream
