    They really have been, and it's been pretty cool to see that process.

    I'm not a big fan of most of UT's TF-based stuff---but I'd love to see more GoBots from them like this. I never liked Cy-Kill, but would buy most any other GoBot character they make. Especially ones with no equivalent TF alt-mode, like a Limo(Tux), Submarine (DiveDive), Battleship(Man-o-War), Corsair(Bentwing) etc.

    Beautiful.

    Btw, only the cheap version of Cy-Kill partsformed, the Super version didn't. :)  But in this case, I don't mind, the result is spectacular imo.

    Well, yeah, but the cheap version ended up with the whole engine block and wheels on his back, instead of the proper wheels-on-shoulders look, so neither is 100% perfect. :lol

    Ok, the quality improvement is very good news with each of their figure. I think if they do Leader 1, I might consider it as a first figure from them.

    @ Peaugh, plastic quality / weight wise, how does this specific figure compare with Takara MP Cars, MMC Bovis, and FP Headmasters or Roadbuster? Does it really feel solid like those, or is it getting almost in that same boat? Is it better that the WB Blast Off plastic / clearance / engineering?

    It's probably around or slightly better than WB plastic, moving towards MMC stuff. It's not OMG amazing perfect! but it's a very solid and well put together figure, yet another step up from Soundmixer. It's a really elegantly designed transformation, and everything moves smoothly. Aside from having to figure out the trick to arms without the instructions, I had no issues figuring out where everything went, and didn't encounter any serious issues when moving things around.

    I have two of the Super Cy-Kill toys, so he can rife himself.

    Also, little trivia, the Super Cy-Kill toy's inner hand holes are 5mm holes. Probably the only 5mm holes I've ever seen on a GoBot!
