    And don't forget, there's a Scourge as well on the other side of the box.

    hmm is there even a render yet? i mean xtb's cyclonus is already far along and i seem to prefer their aesthetics so far to dx9 stuff (for example xtb's scourge looks amazing while dx9's tyrant IMO has aesthetics issues)...

    Yeah I'm not so sure. Maybe this is just box art. I mean it would be awesome if they WERE. :)

    Saw a grey resin proto for XT's Cyclonus and I was blown away. As long as the quality holds he's going to really surprise people. He's excellent.

    I love DX9's stuff, but when it comes to character and quality I play no favorites. I'm sure both DX9's and XT's will be excellent, so really it becomes a matter of aesthetic choice. Which in many ways feels like how it should be.

    Hoo boy.
    Guys, this is a drawing on the side of a box that's not out yet. This is gonna be forever to wait on anything. I'm just gonna quietly forget all about this until something like a render appears. Still... nice to know DX9 is gonna tackle these so I don't have to depend on XTrans.

    I guess its good for the consumer but for me it just muddies the waters with all the cock blocking going on by third parties. I guess its because Im still not comfortable in getting third party stuff in case Takara makes one.

    Bro, just wait to see the DX-9, you know they will do quality work, just remember that Carry you have, that's right, fking amazing right? DX-9 makes both quality and good transformation, though the looks isn't always there, and that could be a big issue. Even if you decide you don't like the look of DX-9 and you want to go with XTB, you can still get it later, it will probably be on discount too, and by then you will know how fans feel about it for sure.

    The art of starting a thread with nothing. Wake me up when there's actually something to discuss.

    I love Cyclonus so I'll just end up buying both this and XTB's offering probably.

    Take your pick:

    • Too big
    • Too small
    • Too much of this color, not enough of another
    • Green shovel/black shovel (generally reserved for Devastator threads)
    • Not G1 enough
    • Too G1
    • Too cartoon accurate
    • Not cartoon accurate enough

    I'm sure I can come up with others if given time.
