    Toyguru Sy-Klone Update

    From the Matty Forums:

    We'll haver images up here in a week or so. While some figures will premier here (like Panthor did) others will go to other media outlets. If we only reveal here it is like "preaching to the choir". Revealing new figs though other media helps to spread the word.

    And yes, his back ring is removable and the front sticker will be a lenticular like the original!

    -Oh and no he will not have a spinning action feature, but you can turn him at his waist like any other figure manually.

    Thx Mega, so the sticker is a sticker, ring is removable (thanks sooo much) and no action feature. Good news, I really hoped he would come without it...

    I'm glad there's no action feature. I think they're unnecessary and I'm hard pressed to think of any remaining figure that would need one. Sy-Klone's would be more pointless than most of them.

    Still don't know how I feel about the sticker. I guess I'm just afraid it's going to look cheap. I did learn a new word though, lenticular. I had no idea what that feature was called before. Thanks TG!

    Advertising-wise they should branch out to something other than ToyFare.

    No one can be disappointed about the action figure, really. Mattel and Toyguru have been pretty up front about that. No action features whatsoever. The exception being Roboto, of course.

    That's awesome news about the ring being removable!! I figured it would be but it's nice to know for sure.

    I hope that lenticular stays on better than the vintage one.

    Yeah, that's pretty much "preaching to the choir" as well.

    Well he does kind of have his action feature, you just have to do it yourself!

    I'm a fan of the big ring personally, but am glad people get the choice.

    Good answers all round

    Not to complain, but that sticker is pretty lame. Mattel can do a little better than a sticker in 2011.

    If there were an alternate head included, I know a lot of folks would be more pleased with Sy-Klone.

    im glad there is no action feature on this toy or any other figure for that matter....having them on a adult collector figure is silly and pointless...

    Unless it's the turning gears in Roboto. Then I'm totally a child!

    He he he! Lookit'em turn!

    Seriously though, it's all in the particular feature. I'm happy to have Roboto's turning gears, but I'm glad Sy-Klone doesn't spin. The spinning thing would be fun, but most of his time will be spent in the way that I play nowadays, and that's messing with the figures and poseing them. The spin feature would just leave his waist loose and he'll never hold a pose. I wana pose him mid-spin and kickin' some butt!

    I think I'll be more excited about him when I get him. Never had him before so stickers, no action feature and removable ring all sound alright to me. No disappointment here. I'd like to see him sometime soon without having to buy a magazine....I guess a week or two isn't going to kill me.

    Certain figures need their action figures. I'm okay with Sy-Klone not having his. I'm not sure why people don't consider Tri-Klops' visor an action feature, but along those lines, Man-E better have turning faces and Mosquitor better have blood in his chest. Dragstor needs a wheel, too. I also feel the re-attachable necks for Mekanek is wishy-washy.

    If anyone on this site wants Ram Man, it's me. And I don't really want the action feature. I want articulated legs as he appeared in the mini-comic.

    I still do not see how Roboto's gears are considered an action feature. An action feature to me is like a spinning body, a twirling arm, atuomatic kicking leg, etc. Gears that spin is definitely not something like that.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    If anyone is disappointed about Sy-Klone not getting his action feature, you can probably make a phone call and request that the production crew that puts on the loose ankles, be moved up to the waist swivel..............then you can spin your Sy-Klone 'round and 'round.

    Glad to have these questions answered.

    However, I am still wondering if he will have his ab-crunch or not. It won't bother me either way, I'm just curious.
