I originally passed on this because I was so pissed after Classics Galvatron.

@kidnicky That's a shame.


That's a shame. This figure is exact opposite of the train wreck that was Classics Galvatron. This figure, along with Prime, is easily one of the best figures in the Classics line.

You mean G1, right? Cause now I'm thinking of a Cybertronian celebrity channel...
Shocking Prime affair with Arcee! Elita-1's take on it!

Great toy, this, even though he's a lot like Voyager Vector Prime. Nightstick and Safeguard are essentially the same toy...

Fantastic toy

As a big Transformers fan, I picked this one up the moment I saw it. I think it is easily the best Deluxe sized toy of the entire Universe line, and arguably one of the best Transformers across all lines in the past few years.

Yeah, looks pretty good to

Yeah, looks pretty good to me. Even the plane mode isn't too bad to my eyes, especially for a mere $13.

I'm sorry, but how threatening can someone be when he has bunny ears?

You see him in TFTM? I was

You see him in TFTM? I was scared of him when I was a kid... You will RESPECT those bunny ears. ;)

I always thought the G1 was

I always thought the G1 was a great-looking toy. I still have my original one here on display. Fantastic in jet mode (sleeker than this guy) and decent in robot mode (at least from the front). I considered him one of the better toys of the original line since he looked the most like his onscreen counterpart in both modes.

The classics update is undeniably nice, but I was able to pass on this guy because I didn't think he improved things enough over the classic toy.

To each his own. ;-)

Is the original G1 toy

Is the original G1 toy diecast? (Yes, I'm too lazy to look this probably-well-known fact up on the umpteen-zillion different TF sites out there!)

If so, I could see how a vintage "upgrade" would be worth it...

The only die-cast in G1 Cycs

The only die-cast in G1 Cycs is the swing bars for the wings and maybe the nosecone? His big chunky body totally could have been tho... He's a totally rad vintage fig, with amazing posability and a fun transformation!

One of the best Uni figs, hands down!

Yeah,remember by that point Transformers were basically plastic action figures.

I just found out they redco'd this mold as one of my childhood favorites,Strafe,but unfortunately it looks nothing like him.

Picked this guy up as well. So happy with it. The face sculpt is G1 spot-on(maybe some day a decent Megatron face sculpt will appear). Got the Takara Hound Classics as well. This line has been pretty sweet. I know they'd never have done it but with a character as imposing as Cyclonus (bunny ears incl.) he should have been made at a Leader class size. Are there even any Leader TF Univ. being made? This line needs to scale up!!

Great review too! I concur on all points. ;D
