    Hello! So I finally got my computer back from repairs and got around to taking pictures of this guy. One of my favorite baddies ever so I had to give him the proper treatment. Just a repaint but as you know I did not go the all purple route, instead I used the same mix of blue that I used on my latest Galvatron figure along with some metallic mixed red for the details and a nice custom mixed purple for the forearms, feet, and knees. Completely hand painted aside from the airbrushed on sealer. Nightstick was painted up straight G1 one with his orange face and red glasses. Thanks for looking and commenting!

    oh gosh thats pretty. if you look closely at tf 1986 movie the insecticon cyclonus was blue with plum looking trim and was never heard from. i made one too but i finished him right before my six year olds bday and lost him.

    I agree, great paint job!

    Did I hear you right about a Galvatron in a matching colour scheme? Did I miss that one?

    That's just rocking, Tony.
    I always love your use of flat/satin colors.

    This is so awesome! Of all the other Cyclonus and Nightstick repaints (and all of them were really great in their own ways) I think this one takes the cake. I can't believe you hand painted all of this, it looks so smooth! Very nice.

    Thanks!
    LOL Thanks Bro! I dont discuss prices in public but send me a PM and we can talk.

    Thanks very much!
    LMAO Thanks bro, I think you get that feeling cause of how big his dome is(maybe?) and i definitely see what you mean. lol
    Thanks bro! Those darn kids, I woulda did a mandatory search but you probably realized it was gone after huh?
    Thanks Bro, after seeing so many purple versions(including yours which is sweet) I had to go the way I remember him just to be different. lol
    Thanks! :thumb 
    Yes, It was the action figure made by Arianhod, he was done a few weeks back. Link
    Thanks bro, I love the satin finish so much, gives it such a great look and feel.
    Danku
    All the colors beside yellow were my own mixes using Vallejo Game Colors.
    Thanks, glad so many do. :) 
    Thanks a bunch! Cyclonus is a great figure so I was not surprised seeing so many great renditions. Thanks again, hand painting is kinda a pain but if you go at it slowly I think anyone can get these results.
    Thanks bro!

    I must admit that this is probably one of my favorite paint apps on Cyclonus. Nice work Tony. What did you use to paint those tiny yellow details?

    Absolutely, ever scene I used a Satin finish paint, I've been all over them.
    I think it's harder to make them look really good. (IMO)
