    this was the very first TF that I touched in about 10 years, I was in a store and saw this and it completely made me start collecting again.
    So yeah just repainted Cyclonus and nightstick no modifications.
    The paint on Cyclonus is pretty reflective so sorry if you cant see alot of detail this was the best I could get out of my camera


    heres a link to buy on ebay

    looks good. Did you clear coat it? It seems some areas look like they're the original colors of the toy, yet seem extra shiny just like the rest.

    I love the candy metallic purple look it has. I think some very dark purple (almost black) washes would bring out the detail more on those purple surfaces, and maybe a dark gray (or clear smoke) wash on the silver areas. But yeah even without those it looks great :)

    Very nice. I just finished one recently, only repainted the grey/beige areas though, I left the purple Hasbro's factory colour.

    Did you disassemble Cyclonus to paint him? If you did, did you by any chance find a way to open up the shoulders?

    I did take most the toy apart but the shoulders I could not get to come apart, im making the armada so when i get to that point(still sanding) i'll try to get them apart and let you know how that goes.

    I just did this to a Cyclonus of mine. He looks really cool with the shiny paint; nice work :thumb

    Looks good man, like you said I don't think your camera is doing your work justice. Love the metallic purple, way better than how he came.
