    I got mine earlier this week. I must say they really needed to put more work into the Targetmaster. Other than that, this seems like a pretty solid figure. Mine has a loose right arm swivel (seems common) and the waist articulation kinda sucks, but overall it’s great.

    One question though, am I crazy or is he too tall? I tend to prefer bigger figures in general, but I didn’t expect him to be twice the size of a typical Autobot car-bot. I never thought of Cyclonus as a huge character, but I guess he is.

    You might be able to do it using a paperclip and some pliers or you could pickup a set of pin pushers from Amazon for next to nothing. Typically people use them for watch repairs.

    shouldn’t be too hard though

    I use the line detail to align them-- make the horizontal line detail a straight line from ear to ear, then the angle is perfect.

    but joking aside I was surprised to find out he is meant to be of comparative size to Ultra Magnus and Sixshot but then you have this...

    I seem to recall second batch or reissue FT-29 improved the cockpit and knee to chest scraping. Is that right?

    The T version fixed it for sure, not sure about reissue.

    That much I know. I remember some members asking for chest parts on the original and they didn't scratch after transformation. Plus vaugely recall the cockpit was fine without sanding.

    Wondering if people without first release Quietus can comment. TIA

    I feel like Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus and Sixshot should be able to look each other straight in the eyes. I'll wait until a good size of each of them comes out.

    I just got my T version today and it still has the cockpit issue. Any advice on a fix? I've tried shaving the post under the cockpit but it's not doing much for me. Thanks.

    Yeah I’m shocked that Ultra Magnus is officially supposed to be the same height as Optimus Prime. How does that make sense?

    Of those three though, the only one which I think doesn’t scale well with everything is MP-22.

    Cyclonus was always supposed to be slightly taller than Galvatron/Prime and while the XTB version lines up a bit better with Magnus in terms of bulk, I think the height works well for all other comparisons except this one.

    Magnus is just too fucking big, man.

    If anyone could do a good mass shifting Magnus, it’d be FansToys.

    if they could get the robot to be slightly bigger than Roadking it would be great. How big is their Sixshot?

    I’ve not bought any XTB but if it was good I’d consider it
