    Nah, not hate - just some kind of apathy on my part. To my eyes it doesn't work simpy because all I can see there is Cyclonus wearing his track suit on his day off. Just because he and Strafe were both futuristic jets doesn't mean forcing Strafe's colours onto Cyclonus looks right.
    Anyways, that's my opinion.

    Sorry for posting twice but I read about this repaint making him look like a knock-off and actually if he had been purple and white with a bit of red instead of just red and white he would had been copying the white knock-off Cycs colors which is sort of funny

    That makes sense. If it was pre-unicron, wouldn't it just be Skywarp though. It is a cool idea for a repaint though


    I was thinking they were gonna go for a G2 strafe with this mold. Would have lessened the need for a head swap


    Nike Convoy?


    Without a headswap, there is not enough to warrant its price tag

    A repaint for repaint's sake is an easy pass for me (unless there's City Commander armor to go with it), especially with that price tag. It's only slightly tempting because Cyclonus has such a great mold.

    Already paid for mine in full and I don't regret it. While the mold is such a iconic Decepticon character, I like the colors and the final outcome. At least I got him for less than Wildrider...

    The colors look surprisingly good on this mold.

    It looks like a secret love child of Ratchet and Cyclonus.

    I also like the red chrome on the wings. It would've been nice if Henkei Starscream's red bits were chromed that way.

    I think the colors work surprisingly well. This guy will look fantastic next to Powerglide and Silverbolt. His Targetmaster however will be given to another bot once I figure out who.

    I am a sucker for Aerialbots. Pre-order remains open.
