    Cannonball yea! :D  A wonderful repaint of Red Alert. Soundblaster okay. I feel sorry for Skywarp though. He would have bee so cool based on the small LOC Skywarp. Not a way for Cybertron to do Skywarp justice. :(

    Welcome to the TF (or any for that matter) fandom. :thumbs2:  People complain about every other figure... the only figure I haven't seen any complaints about is Alt Mirage. And I'm sure someone is going to complain about it at some point. Just try to take it all with a grain of salt and remember that everyone has an opinion about something. :)

    I think the chosen repaint for the Starscream Voyager will be Sunstorm, who I find more appealing that Skywarp.

    yes I am aware of his bio. but what does that mean when the ENTIRE TOYLINE of Cybertron has a sigil on each and every last figure, including sideways!?!?

    It means you're wrong, because they don't.
    Sideways is entirely factionless in that regard. Those faction logos on his shield are just a disguise element. Soundwave is not a double-agent.

    The symbol of Planet X is that sort of gold crest design on SW's shield and Noisemaze's chest.

    Besides, Galaxy Force are the "true" versions of these toys. I don't really count Cybertron's added logo stamping to be accurate.

    GF stuck to the design concepts and MOST of the time match the show model better. Hasbro's are very close but feature small modifications that are sometimes good(Megatron, Red Alert) and sometimes bad(Override with her sunburn face, Vector Prime in general)

    Now, later on in the show, alot of characters do GAIN faction logos who didn't have them before, but Soundwave is entirely excluded from that. He never joins a side but his own and

    BIG SPOILER SPACE


    Dies a quick death shortly after he appears in the show, having never aligned himself with anyone but Noisemaze.

    given that the voyager mold hasn't had a proper US release, i'd have taken it released 2x in the main line (TrU exclusive not-withstanding) as Skywarp and Sunstorm. The could have just released purple boy here as "Aerodrone" or "Decepticlone" and made him a generic, Army-building footsoldier (which probably would have sold more to the fandom) and still released Voyager Skywarp.

    regardless crap mold in crap colours = no-buy. Thundercracker is the only Cybertron figure i've bought that i consider a total failure (and about 3 pegs would have been all it took to rememdy "total failure" status and just made him dissapointiing)

    Red Alert's mold was interesting once, but these tacky tampos are pretty bad. and the half paint eypatch thing looks really bad. when we saw the art on the club website, i was pretty sure he was gonna be Energon Six-shot... another no-buy.

    now, on the other hand, i might have to just pass on Soundwave and get Soundblaster, that looks fantastic.

    Cannonball and Skywarp are awesome in their gaudiness. I'm not buying them, but it's fun watching Hasbro have fun with these.

    Skywarp needs black desperately. WTF are they thinking? Cannonball is kinda cool, I'm glad it's a Decepticon. The Soundblaster is ace! I have no comments about the LOC as I have yet to see the line anywhere around here so I don't give a crap yet.
