This is what I was thinking...
Thank you for the heads up! Pre-ordered!
I liked the previous Blackbird Robo head as well. It would have been nice if they included it as a bonus.
On a side note, I'm surprised Turbo hasn't seen a pre-order: we've been seeing color shots for a while now.
I really don't get that head... was it supposed to be Gobots accurate? because the original toy and the Anime had completely different, all silver mouthless heads.
Well it’s not exactly like the gobots one either. It’s like a strange fusion.
Strange. I don't like the mouth.
That episode (CyKill's Cataclysmic Trap) made Snoop much more interesting. It was, unfortunately, an episode I never caught during the original run. She only had one bit of dialog in the best episode ever (Speed is of the Essence) and another bit part in Doppleganger after that.
Blackbird Robo is a much better character. he has over 20 seconds of screentime and no lines!
He was even in reconnaissance in Battlehackers ep. 11 where he was overtaken by Mach Blaster and R.Jettan because he was not used to thunder and heavy rain interferences. I think he was also in the first 3 episodes of Battlehackers so he did more than be silent. He was also voiced by Godai from Maison Ikkoku who voiced Mach Blaster and Suji in BH as well.
He did appear in the first few minutes of Battlehackers ep. 14 where he was mind controlled,Kenpo robo smashed the device which made him that way which paved the way for this meme I'm bringing back:
Lol I love it.
And preordered from Tony at Robotoybase for USD39.9 + shipping.
Action Toys Machine Robo 09 Steam Robo
I like RoboToyBase but I always get hit hard on shipping.
Haven't heard anything back from Action Toys yet.
Does the DX cykill no longer include the anime faces? The reason I ask is because BBTS has two listings, one with "bonus", which is sold out, and one that doesnt mention the faces at all.
I dunno but I'm willing to bet those bonus faces were the 'Gobots' faces'. So Bike Robo without Cy-kill's faces.
All the reviews I’ve seen he had the standard bike robo face.
if I recall, the "extra" is the toon cykill faces with the little face holding robot thingy packed in a separate bag outside of the box.
Oh right. He just said anime faces and I thought bike robo.
Yeah it was the gobot faces. Shame they were only a one-off thing, that was the primary reason for me wanting one. lol
Sorry,man. :/ Hopefully there are some ebay spares of those faces lying around.
So I did hear back from Action Toys finally. They didn't answer any questions but want to know where I plan to sell the figures. Oh, and they could have a virus on their computer/mailbox because my spam has exploded in the aftermath. Hope they accepted "conventions in the northeast US." Guess I'll know in another two weeks.
