    Dude we're saying the same thing. Smaller guy can be the rival of a bigger guy. Do you not own UM, Eligos or Quietus?

    I just saw this.
    Used Eligos complete and in excellent condition from a trusted USA seller.
    Xtransbots Eligos Masterpiece MP Cyclonus w/ Bonus! Perfect Cond. IN USA! | eBay
    upload_2019-1-2_13-53-28.png

    This listing is for a used Xtransbots Eligos (Cyclonus). He is in perfect condition. Never transformed. Only used for display. Comes with the box, manual, and all original accessories. The glue seam on the box has come apart and the box itself has normal shelf wear if that is something that concerns you. Nothing a little tape or a glue stick can't fix. As a bonus, I'm also throwing in a 3 pack of G1 Pink Energon Cubes! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Don't forget to check out my other listings for some more great accessories for your collection!

    You may want to ask about the mini Galvatron (if it's important to you). He isn't in the pic or mentioned, although it does say "all original accessories."

    Good point. I'm sure it is included based on the description but it never hurts to ask.

    I would ask. I got my wife a couple items recently listed as "complete with all accessories" and they were not. When i asked the seller she replied "they're complete as pictured". She clearly did not understand what complete actually means.

    Does anyone know if x-transbots will do a reissue of eligos anytime soon. Finding it difficult to find one at a reasonable price, was also wondering if they'd update the mold with more metallic flek in the plastic. I love his bulk and dimensions over the ft version which is too skinny imo.

    I've got a custom I'd be willing to part with. I painted the white parts silver in jet mode and upgraded the hands to KFC versions.

    If they do a + version with more paint I'll bite.

    I believe @ibot commented around the time that FansToys Quietus released that they'd like to do a premium painted version of Eligos (or something like that at least)...

    Has anyone here ever painted Eligos to give him a more premium look? I have FansToys Quietus and except for the nice looking paint he looks off to me. Eligos looks cheap though and that puts me off...

    It's a shame that Andras and the Swarm pack got a the premium paint job (except for the light blue thigh area) but Eligos didn't.

    Elligos came out at the time when there was a marked shift towards "cartoon accuracy", hence the more flat color design choices.

    Is there any information about this? Any links?
    I'm curious about the features of this new version.

    I'm going by the comments iBot made about a possible repaint. Given all of the recent XTB reissues with metallic paint jobs and subtle mould improvements, I wouldn't be surprised to see it.

    Can you post the link to that comment he made? I can't seem to find it.

    If they rerelease Eligos in metallic I would definitely bite. The non-metallic finish on Eligos is the only real gripe that I have with the figure.

    Same here except I am also slightly bothered by his gigantic lower legs as well. But man, with a decent paintjob Eligos could be really nice instead of cheap looking.

    @ibot actually said it in the Xtransbots Savant thread. I'd say it was an offhand comment, but some read more into it:
