    I think that is even more expensive than when I last saw it.

    Insane but no one is going to purchase that figure.

    Such a really weird price. Humans are dumb as hell.

    Just because they listed them at those prices doesn’t mean that they get sold.

    On a brighter side of things, Cyclonus should be out anytime now.

    I'm pretty much just down to needing a Jazz at this point for the back catalog I'm interested in. Keeping my fingers crossed he'll show up on either the boards to Ebay for a decent price, but I guess there's always Robot Toy Base if I get impatient.

    My Rush Beats leg sheered off at the thigh peg. It's the first break I've had with an IF figure. Finding a new one at a decent price is gonna be impossible.

    If anyone is looking to sell one let me know. I also have some IF figures, like the Datsun Bros I'm willing to trade.

    What cyclonus scales well with if Galvatron and scourge? I'm not digging the if samurai one. Would mft work?

    the skirt comes off of the IF bot so he looks more like a traditional version.

    They should’ve given a more G1 alt head instead of the same head but missing a horn, especially when the horn piece can be removed and swapped. That and a rifle and perhaps a winged forearm piece and you can have a more G1 look. I figure, based on the pictures, that they could’ve done it with upcoming Grimlock as well.

    It would be Magic Square, definitely not MFT.

    If you want a G1 Cyclonus, just get a G1 Cyclonus... MS, MFT, I'd guess NA will do one eventually.

    I don't mean to be rude, but I might be confused about this question. Unlike the Samurai Series Bludgeon and Lio Convoy, the Cyclonus one is relatively more accurate to the stylized IDW look that he had in the comics. Not completely of course, but IF is always known to be more stylized and not slavish (not toon accurate but not always comic accurate either). IF Galvatron is way more stylized than Newage Galvatron for example. So personally, I feel that in pics, IF Cyclonus pairs perfectly with IF Galvatron and IF Scourge, though I suppose you think differently.

    If you want G1, the MFT is just an upscaled KO of DX9 Cyclonus with a really derpy face. It DEFINITELY would not look good compared to IF Galvatron, and even looks derpy compared to Newage Galvatron. You could pair it with MFT Galvatron but at that point I'd argue it's not worth it, haha. I'm sure NA will do a Cyclonus to go with their Galvatron soonish.
