Stuff it. It it was a gimmick to 'sell' figures they wouldn't keep doing it on an exclusive. This is an exclusive and the people buying it aren't hooked into it because it's a 'gimmick', they like it because it's an exclusive and evil colors on their favorite characters is something that's cool.

It took a real genius to say "lets paint Optimus/Rodimus black and make him evil." I mean really did they have a kindergarten contest to come up with the best character and Nemisis Prime was the winner and shattered glass the runner up ??? I just think it is silly.

So where is the red Megatron ??? (TFCC cant get rid of all the red and yellow Cyclonus's they should give em away)

1. I would love some red Megatrons. Bring it.

2. You're 100% wrong about the SG Cyclonus. It sold out really fast. If you have the 2008 BotCon set you would understand why.

For all of you who are fans of the Animated toys then more good news but for me, it has really sucked that so many exclusives here in Japan this year have been Animated figures (I'm not a fan).

Please give us some Classics repaints like the Rainmakers or Sleep/Nememis Prime next year TT!!!

I have seen the red Cyclonus for sale listed as "in stock" on both Toy Arena and BBTS. See for yourself, heres the links. Did the fans really buy them for their collections, or did they all end up in warehouses ??? Doesnt seem like a hot item to me...

But I must admit the Counterpunch figure did very well and I regret not getting one. I was wrong about the head sculpt.

BBTS only has one left in stock at twice its original price in a sub-standard box.

ToyArena has 20 or less left (if they actually have that many, their system lies hides actual stock numbers).

Out of the 1000+ or so of Cyclonus that were made, I'd say that's pretty good.

To Hasbro it is, as they sold part of the stock to those resellers. Now it's their problem, not Hasbro's
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

It odd how TFCC claims these figures to be "exclusive" to members only, but allows companies to sell them to non-members online, but when you see them at Botcon with cash, they show no love to non-members. If thats the case, the membership should just give you a discount, because these figures are not exclusive to members only.

Those stores buy memberships and then purchase figures through those memberships.
