with comic? That'd be one of the first sightings I've heard of.

I wonder what those of you with the sticker sheets think of having a stock Slingshot next to his stickered twin Firefly.

I also wonder if Motormaster and Blackjack are delayed because they're fixing the clicking joints on Motormaster and the loose Blackjack.

When these molds are available, the Botcon guys should do two box sets instead of one. G2 redecos of the Aerialbots and Stunticons. They'd definitely make their money back. They wouldn't even have to do any head remolding.

Hell, they could throw in the G2 Megatron repaint and probably sell that out too.

It's a stretch, but at least it's a good template to work off of to correct history Big Brother-style so that Alpha Bravo has always existed.

In-Hand Images - Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Cyclonus, Plus Galvatronus Mode

Postby Va'al » Mon Apr 06, 2015 12:34 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of usual suspect Genetic of the TFND.net boards, and notified by fellow Transformers fan Chris Wells, we have our first proper look at the Generations Combiner Wars retool of Voyager Silverbolt - into Cyclonus! And not only is the olden Decepticon repurpled for the cause, we also finally see the new torso mode for the Galvatronus combined mode, some comparison shots, and some combined mode pictures too. Check out a sample below, and head here for more!

Can't say the same for the robot mode, but that jet mode is gorgeous!

No, so far Cyclonus and Optimus Prime are "extra torsos", meaning they have no particular members uniquely assigned to them unlike Superion and Menasor.

Umm... The top of the jet, yes, but the bottom kibble is a tough sell. I know that all jets suffer from this but some are better at tucking in the bottom kibble than others. Silverbolt was always the biggest offender for me because the shape under the jet wasn't even in tune with the plane. Generations Jetfire has all the kibble there too but at least from the sides the legs work along the jet making the undercarriage add some volume to it and make it seem like it belongs there. But not with Silverbolt, tt was all boxy and angular under a standard plane. But it was an homage to G1 (aka an easy way out) which I can get behind (to help me sleep at night). But with this guy, not really. As far as updates to G1, I find the Universe one better. Now thats a toy that knows how to handle kibble.

Additionally, Cyclonus's bio on the box says that he mind-controls other Transformers into combining with him, so he probably just hijacks whoever is around. Y'know, in whatever micro-continuity the bio takes place in.

Don't count on it. TakaraTomy seems to focus on the classic Combiners and the classic lineup only, with Superion, Menasor, and likely Guardian/Defensor, plus whatever classic teams appear next year.

While the Universe Version has an outstanding robot mode, I was always disappointed by the jet mode. The jet mode in that version hid the kibble well, but in the process, it lost all of the sleek lines that the G! toy and cartoon had.

I almost want to buy this guy, chop off all the kibble showing for his robot mode and just keep him as a jet on my shelf.

I'm glad it's not just me, I'm getting the feeling it's not a coincidence

In fact swap out cyclonus for hot spot, change blades for his white alternative alpha bravo and I'd say you got a close as possible idw overlord.

Can't wait to see it done, I think it would surprise a few people. Hopefully someone on here will flex their photshop skill on it soon
