    Question:

    So the canopy won't close because the square peg under it is too big, right? Would it be too much to ask for FT to offer a replacement corrected canopy part? Shouldn't be too difficult to swap out? Just throwing that out there.

    The pictures make it look like the entire section the canopy is attached to rather than the canopy itself.

    That was the reported, unconfirmed by me, answer by the FT rep said to fix issue.

    I always assumed that the "created by Unicron bodies" intentionally mimic'd Unicron to some degree---Galvatron most of all (his "divided red abs" are VERY similar), but several have fairly similar "ab-crystals"---and since Unicron's abs clearly are "transparent with glowing stuff/gas behind it" I figured that so are Galvatron's, and to a lesser degree Cyclonus' etc, we just never zoom in THAT close with a high enough budget to see it.

    Thank you!
    Quietus is better in person. I think he is very cartoon accurate.

    Maybe after we get one in actual Cyclonus colors instead of blue and white?

    I think my idea is more likely, sadly.

    Aside from the Dibots, how many novelty recolours has FT done in the past?

    From memory, they did:

    - several colorings of Quakewave (clear, dark, original, gray)
    - 2 Bombshells (gray, purple)
    - included parts for two Tesla colorings (after fan uproar)
    - Phoenix X version with all vac'd reds, and pearl white body
    - Terminus Guardian blue and white

    That's all I really remember.

    FT's Motormaster and Silverbolt have these clear pieces as well.
