    Interesting. I'm glad they finally acknowledged that Cyclonus is a Targetmaster (and I'd love for them to do the same with Scourge). The stickers are unfortunate, but I think it appeals to the most people, like how people could use Selects Galvatron as either toy Galvatron, Galvatron II, or IDW Arcee pre-surgery depending on how many stickers you used.

    I do think I'm seeing what people have been saying about the recently-leaked toy-accurate Legacy Dinobot. I just don't think the original toy's deco works with this mold, the blue just looks strange, especially on the torso where it looks like its trying to emphasize a slimmer torso than what the figure actually has. And the grey may look pretty good in vehicle mode, but in robot mode it's just too spread out, like how the grey wings and mostly-grey forearms are interrupted by a big block of purple shoulder.

    And for the sake of comparison, here's the toy in its original deco:

    Really prefer these colors to the Kingdom ones. Hopefully he comes with his regular gun too since Artfire did.

    If he's like Selects Galvatron they'll be optional.

    They were originally twins before Arcee's forced, uh, transition by Jhiaxus. IDW Arcee has some unfortunate story points.

    Yep, they decided to make Galvatron and Arcee related, and in her old body Arcee was colored like the original Galvatron toy. Except I was wrong, Galvatron is colored closer to the original Galvatron toy, Arcee had silver shoulder pads. Galvatron on the left, Arcee on the right.

    I dont get whats so terrible about Hasbro stickers? I bought a few and they're pretty well-made. It's a lot higher quality than toyhax

    Not exactly. Arcee explained that she wanted to transition on her own, but a paucity of communal resources had her make the mistake of turning to Jhiaxus, unaware of Jhiaxus’s lack of regard for proper procedure or care for patients.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH fuck me sideways
    I didn't want it. I wish I didn't want it. I fucking want it though.
    I already got Cyclonus. Who is nearly perfect. But they s o m e h o w made him fucking better, and my wallet will hate me for it lol.

    personally I kinda dig the stickers, and damn the targetmaster is an awfully nice compliment to Cyc

    Yeah, lots of retconning due to Furman's original abrasiveness in crafting the his one shot due to him not wanting female Transformers. But this whole topic is really irrelevant to this particular thread.

    Oh damn that looks really good. Might have to get this to go along with Selects Galvatron. I’m guessing a toy colors Scourge & Fracas will be following?

    They tend to peel off eventually (or even immediately) and they often look awful.

    One of the first things I check about a figure that comes with stickers is how it looks WITHOUT them.

    Personally, like many others, I prefer paint apps.

    Hmm. If toy versus animation decoes for Scourge were addressed by Studio Series 86-05 Scourge and Studio Series 86-10 Sweep, and the Scourge/Artfire Targetmaster partner was included with Generations Selects Artfire, then I suppose toy-coloured Generations Selects Cyclonus coming with the Targetmaster partner means Hasbro does not have plans for an updated Studio Series-style Stepper.
