    I got one last year used, and the head did scare the hell out of me and that was the first things I checked in details to see how I could fix it.

    Turned out to be fairly easy, I took it apart and filed the parts down just a bit until it would still be snug but would "click" easily.

    He's an interesting design all right.

    Optimal Optimus was by far Primal's best body out of his 4.

    But Megatron wore it better.

    Part of that probably has to do with it originally being an Primal body. Like if a new sequel to Marvel G1 ended with Megatron fighting Optimus in his old Powermaster body.

    I really like Livio Ramondelli's art and coloring. It has a very Impressionistic look to it that I am 1000% into.

    G1 cyclonus’s design looks really stupid, you seriously cannot tell me that this is the herald of robo satan 6A62175F-2D3A-4A06-BC39-AB4AA6D68FB3.jpeg
    Also light piping is stupid. Unless you put it under a light for 24 hours it just looks more dead than it would’ve if it had painted eyes.

    Grimlock with blue eyes looks stupid.

    At this point you're just racking up likes for Nova. Can you get into why you think that instead of the Ah-huh Nah-uh debate style?

    I assume then you are referring to his skeletal face. Can't account for taste, but I like it especially with the whole samurai motif and the fact he has actual horns instead of bunny ears.

    Dunno if your a 40k fan,but you essentially just described the planet "Barbarus" from their universe - the idea of that hellworld then turning into a giant rusted leviathan of darkness and doom is a very cool image.

    It's been 20 years since I played but you're right. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

    (I played the table top RP version, not the pure wargame version. Same universe though.)

    all this heated cyclonus talk.... were they ever that different cosmetically? Ones got a skull-ish face and a busted horn the other's gotta gun seems like the kinda thing not worth giving a shit over.

    Yeah, I don't get it either. Sure they are clearly different designs, but they aren't as radically different as people make them out to me imo.

    This is the first I'm realizing it's considered that much of a difference.
