    I got my Cyclonus in the mail today from HTS....after reading the leg defect thread I was a bit nervous but mine is fine. Infact im actually rather impressed by him. Some of the Universe Classics don't seem as well made as the actual Deluxe classics were but Cyclonus ROCKS. All his joints are tight, he transforms well and he just looks impressive...one of the Best Homages to G1 that they have done yet. It also don't hurt that they made him a Targetmaster! I always thought the Targetmaster/Headmaster/Powermaster/Actionmaster thing was just a bad gimmick but this remake is actually pretty cool!!!

    I'm impressed with what I've seen so far. The leg transformation had me at hello. Unfortunately, I can't find anything of this wave in stores yet. So I can't give a held-in-hand perspective yet.

    I'm actually a little disappointed in him. I THOUGHT he'd be the best Universe toy yet, but I think that'll go to Sideswipe so far instead. Mainly because I didn't realize how many places there are gaps in the main body of his vehicle mode. I like solid-looking vehicle modes.

    He's still really good, though.

    Oh yes, Cyclonus is awesome.

    I just got mine today, and he's already opened, transformed, and posed. Usually, I lag way behind in opening new toys, but he was highly anticipated since I first saw him!

    I'm gonna go pose him by Titanium Scourge before I go to bed.

    I was really impressed with the Robot mode; what originally called my attention was the alt. mode, but after buying it I quickly realized he is one of my favorite Deluxe, great work on the figure, the paint and both modes.

    Cyclonus is - so far - my favorite Deluxe sized figure of the Universe line. Good alt mode, good bot mode, impressive transformation scheme, and kudos to the toy gods for adding in Nightstick.

    The paint is more than fine......

    When did you become a Mod? They're called Mods guy.

    Let THEM police the threads.

    Got mine yesterday, he's quite badass. I noticed a small paint chip though, which I may just sharpie in since the purple is so dark, but I'm still not sure if I like this mold or Sideswipe better.

    I also got Cheetor in, and while the robot mode suffers, I really like the cat mode, and the transformation is fun.
