    Is the add-on worth upgrading CW Cyclonus or would I be better off getting a MMC Boreas?

    Personally, I love the upgrade on cyclonus, I think it looks so much better than stock and it’s cheaper than boreas

    It really depends on if you already have the CW figure and if you can get this set at retail price.

    I think if you already mix 3P stuff into your Generations line, go with MMC.

    If you're predominantly official stuff, go for the voyager with upgrade.

    The MMC figure is quite tall. If your mix is mostly deluxe and voyager sized, it'll be too large.

    boreas is about voyager size isnt it? i have jeagertron and its about the same size as a voyager, maybe a bit taller.

    id say the ultimate conceits are as follows:
    do you have cw cyclonus already?
    if not can you get it for retail?
    if yes to either of these then can you get the renderform kit for retail?
    if yes then youll spend roughly $60 for a pretty decent cyclonus

    if no then will boreas be cheaper?

    I was planning on Boreas, till they changed his color scheme. That was stupid and annoying, and MMC didn't even have the brains to do an asterisk mode in MMC colors for Boreas and Turben.

    Are there more folks like me here who ordered the upgrade kit for cyclonus and still haven't received it?
    I ordered it the moment this thread opened (in fact, I had the first reply here). At one point Renderform wrote me that a first batch was sent and mine wasn't in it, but it's been a while since.

    before i say anything, Renderform's kit is beautiful, the only reason i didn't get it is because I don't like CW Cyclonus, i feel Cyclonus should be deluxe sized. Another option for a MTMTE Cyclonus is the maketoys hurricane set. It provides a new head for Battle in Space Cyclonus, a skirt, new hands, a sword, and a hilt. Oh and it comes with an IDW Tailgate.

    Not just you, though I also had the Galvatron set. Last I heard from him in January was that it'll be sent at some point

    We got an update in the Galvatron thread--any update on Cyc for those of us who haven't received it? Closing on a year since I ordered...

    Has anyone else ordered this set and not received it? I got a note about a month ago that Venksta was filling orders, and no updates since.

    Sorry to anyone who came here looking for updates. Still waiting to hear. I know that a lot of these Cyc kits actually went out, but mine still hasn't appeared.

    I got mine and he is gorgeous!

    And... I stupidly didn't realize I wanted the kit with two full horns, and got the broken-horned one. Any chance of drumming a dual-horned kit?

    Considering selling my Cyclonus w/renderform kit, it’s the two horn version, figured I’d see if anybody was interested

    Really wish I'd gotten this set when it came out. Any of them still out there?

    Hope so but I'm looking at getting one of Maketoy's Tailgate with the Cyclonus kit at this point. Seems like there are more of those still out there then there are of these.
