    He came with a large Matrix of Leadership and a chain ala TF'86, and the central crystal is green instead of blue or white.

    That Matrix is horrible. I took the one that opens from Masterpiece Hot Rod v1 and put a chain on it instead. I'll post a pic in a little bit. The one that comes with it is too big, wrong colored and shaped weird.

    Anyone have spare hands or a spare finger for this dude?

    They pop off so easy I missed when it came off.

    I really just need one finger...

    You do. If you find one for cheap, jump on it. I already had Sovereign and Big Cannon when I got mine and I did NOT regret the additional purchase.

    I found this in tyrant's box. I cannot find where it might go. Anybody have a clue? Is it maybe from something else? 20200516_192111.jpg 20200516_192102.jpg 20200516_192052.jpg

    There's nothing worse than finding a floating piece in a box and having no idea where it goes.

    I just redid my display and now I have sovereign at a shelf that's eye level when I'm sitting down and tyrant on the bottom shelf, and I love it. Looking down at tyrant minimizes its proportional issues

    So if DX9 is gone I just want to say thank you for this piece. He really was great for his time. I actually took I'm off the shelf two days ago to pose him and play with him. Such an underrated piece form an underrated company.

    Was it the designer(s) or the company itself? If it's just the designer, maybe they will continue with the repaints as toyworld has done. I thought we were still getting metallic painted carry/terror(?)

    DX9 issued a statement that essentially said they weren't being paid (or paid enough) for their designs and were calling it a day. I don't know if DX9 is a dude or a bunch of dudes.

    I prefer this to Fanstoys because is cheaper and is funny to transform ,and face feels "Galvatron".
    Any news about reissue?It's strange that on US shops still no preorders.
    DX9 had encountered problems but hope that Tyrant can be reissued,just as they're finishing their Stunticons.

    DX9 closed shop after reassign their last Stunticon. A reissue for this is looking very grim.

    The dx9 designers are gone, but the owner of UniqueToys still has the molds. Hence all the re-releases.

    We just had Dx9 Henry re-released in G2 colours months after Dx9 closed up shop, so I dont see why Tyrant won't be re-released.
