    Ahh....no. Sorry. It's just not worth the price tag, especially what BBTS is selling it for.

    Heh, looks nothing like Strafe... Ah well, it is kinda fun, but not something I'll lose any sleep over missing out on.

    OooooooooKayyyy......glad I didn't pre-order this. It actually looks like Cyclonus from the cartoon episode when they go through the Black Hole and turn all different colors.

    It could be a decent "Shattared Glass" Cyclonus....

    Yeah, if you're into Shattered Glass, this would make a good SG Cyclonus. Even though he's not the same colors as he is in the comic.

    That would have rocked! And made sense.

    Your logical thought process has no place in the world of repaints :wink:

    Vehicle mode actually looks decent, but the robot mode? Ouch, that's some bad colour scheme. Still, even if it is terrible looking, this thing is going to end up being valuable simply due to it's 'limited edition' status.

    Huh, this is just bad. Strafe has nothing to do with the Cyclonus mold, this is like a KO.

    Vehicle mode looks OK in those colours, but not the robot.

    some molds should not be repainted. cyclonus is cyclonus. it should not be altered with at all.

    Just be thankful a third Strafe toy is getting made. Many eighties characters don't even have a second toy to their name.

    I wouldn't mind a repainted Cyclonus to be part of his "Armada" (even in these colors) but it just doesn't work as an Autobot...

    Yup. That's my problem with many repaints of firmly established characters of TF lore these days. They don't look like someone else when repainted, they look like who the mold was originally for, but in their pajamas.

    Also, in those particular colours it looks to me like a cheap KO.

    Wow, so much hate in this thread.:lol 

    The funny thing is that in a years time everyone is gonna decide they want him after all and scramble to find him. Anyway seeing as how I'm not getting any movie figs I'm gonna end up buying this guy so I have SOMETHING during the year or so drought I'm gonna go through. Plus I regret not trying to get Wildrider, so I'm not gonna pass this guy up as well.
