Do you have an Alternators Ricochet? A gold Nightstick would be a natural fit.
Once again, I'm suckered in by my love for repaints. WANT.
He is the aptly named "Goldmember", since he also doubles as a golden colored... ah, nevermind.
I would consider forking the money down for Negative Universe Cyclonus in the yellows and what not but not for "hai guyz i wanna b a tecknobot" Cyclonus.
Some molds don´t work as faction-changing repaints and this is one of them. It doesn not look much "autobotish".
So, they give us a straight repaint of Cyclonus with no new head?
Yet another figure that doesn't justify its hype.
Looks pretty cool to me, I like how Nightstick was chromed gold to look like Strafe's guns.
I know Strafe and I know Technobots. What is Shattered Glass?
Is that like one of those things where they repaint Energon and Cybertron toys, give them a new head, and make you pay more for them?
Close. They were Energon, Armada, Cybertron and Classics molds, from Botcon 2008.
This is F-ing ridiculous. what the hell were they thinking?
So I'm guessing we not going to be getting a "REAL" classic universe Strafe.
Haha, no. You'd be just as likely to see Universe Blot.
wow, you heard it here first! we're getting universe BLOT...
anyway, i think he looks really cool, but he does kinda need a new head...wish they had done that...i've got my preorder open still, but i might cancel it and just buy an extra cyclonus and customize him with a new head...
I thought strafe was made by grimlock???
Fixed, but yes.
I wouldn't have bought this at retail, let alone as a ridiculously priced exclusive.
A little odd, but I like it and I like the Technobots... and as I think there's no way in heck Hasbro is going to revisit the Technobots anytime soon... yeah, I'm all over this and with BBTS arrival date being August it'll make a nice B-Day present to myself.
Though, on a serious note... this is about what I expected. I mean... the mold is so spot on Cyclonus that no matter what paint scheme you throw on it it's going to look like Cyclonus attempting to cos-play as another Transformer. Even if you gave it a remolded head... I'm still not sure it'd look any better.
I think it does look cool. It just doesn't look right for Strafe. I said it a long time and and I'll say it again, that head can not be used for a simple repaint of a new character. This is a Cyclonus only mold simply because the head shape is integral to the figure. You can't put a new head on it.
O well.. the damn thing is going to cost a fortune anyways. Might as well just by another Cyclonus and paint it.
All the chromey stuff does look pretty cool though. Especially the wing tips.
