    It's been mentioned a few (hundred) times already.
    The belief is that the legs aren't extended fully, and the hands aren't exposed. It's probably partially transformed due to it being in a sample wrapper.

    I think the camera angle makes him look bulky but his legs definitely needs to extend. My guess is it’s mistransformed.

    Dang, you beat me to it! Lol!

    Let's hope that the VTOL wings of Thrust will be down as usual according to the canon, and not up.

    I’m surprised that they would go with an f-14 alt mode for the maverick figure since they will be using f-18s in the new movie but I’m not complaining, this looks great! That figure is screaming to be repainted into a GI joe sky striker, which makes me wonder if we will see just that with the rumored SDCC GI joe transformers crossover set.

    Yeah, I’m hoping the bot mode stretches out a bit more. Even if it does, the jet mode still seems a bit too bulky. But I’ll forgive that if there isn’t a folded-up robot underneath it (a la CW Cyclonus, Siege Tetrajets, etc).

    Holy cow these leaks!!! My reaction to the Maverick
    3390C74C-FF2F-415F-B1BA-D1D455ADD20E.gif

    Seems like we skipped a year for crossovers though:
    1984 - Ghostbusters’ Ecto
    1985 - Back to the Future’s Delorean
    1986 - Top Gun’s F14
    Get on it Hasbro!

    Brooooo just last week I was trying to buy Soundblaster to fill that gap so I could have the big four of the cons. It didnt work out and now Im SO happy it didnt! Definitely picking up ER Scream now!

    Cyclonus looks sick too, and I dont know who the heck Thrust and Maverick are but hey more transformers!!

    I wasn't initially that interested in the Top Gun crossover, but now I have Berlin in my head and warm memories of running around pretending to be in Top Gun in the playground, and I kind of need it now.

    Cyclonus and Thrust are must haves too.

    Is it possible that Cyclonus could actually be a Studio Series figure? Is there any indication of what line he actually belongs to, like leaked listings?

    Cyclonus debuted in the 86 movie, right? So maybe they’re doing him. There also seems to be a weird lack of ports and is pretty smooth.

    My poor Henkei Nightstick has gone from Henkei Cyclonus to UW Cyclonus and will likely now be going to this new Cyclonus.

    Loving all these leaks. Even the ones that are kind of annoying like Soundwave.

    Very sweet reveals man!!! I too am of the opinion that Cyclonus is likely just not fully transformed at the legs. He looks fantastic, and this further fuels my hopes that we'll get a new and better Galvatron and Rodimus Prime!!! Hasbro's really on fire though; this line is like the Marvel Legends of Transformers!

    Totes hype for cyclonus, mostly because he looks to transform decently, and a bit because I can kinda army build with him. It'd be 30 buckaroos a pop, but an armada is worth it.

    Thrust's legs will collapse more, right?

    There's an F-14 in the Top Gun Maverick trailer and it makes sense to make an F-14 Tomcat Transformer since this is an 80's throwback.
