Another G1-inspired grid, this time with an artist’s rendition of the figure inside.

Just like the previous Cyclops, all you get inside the box is the figure and instructions sheet.

New Age originally solicited this release as H02PT Vizla, but the name was dropped for the official release. This is doubly odd when you consider that the translucent Manero announced at the same time retained it’s dedicated Kagemusha naming.

The Robot

No surprises here except that, with the translucent plastic the color darkens to a deeper purple that is a better fit for the character.

The Porsche

Unlike Kagemusha, the vehicle mode doesn’t suffer quite as bad from the visible panel lines and hinges. Again, the deeper purple has improved the look.

The Conclusion

The color alone might be enough to convince some to pick this up over the original release.
