    They look similar but I don't have the henkei version. Can anyone compare?

    Not even close. Henkei is much lighter.

    The RTS version is now the closest to G1.

    RTS is manlier than the Henkei Version.

    I didn't mind the original Universe Cyclonus but the RTS blows that colour scheme out of the water.

    Actually the Challenge at Cybertron version is closest.

    It's the same thing barring the rub symbol.

    The rts sticker on my Cyclonus was lop-sided, so I got rid of it. One repro-label later and I now have my favorite Cyclonus figure ever. The Classics Cyclonus just got demoted to Armada; his TM is slated to become Stepper's targetmaster as soon as I can find an rts Jazz to paint.

    G1 accuracy is less science and more tint control on the tv. My Henkei Cyc is most accurate since that's what he looked like on my tv. Plus he's all over the map in the comics.

    I had the Henkei version but sold him when I saw the Challenge at Cybertron set. To me the Henkie version looked wrong. I did however like his Targetmaster.

    Wow, all this judgment. And no one asked.

    Anyway, the dark purple paint apps on Henkei Cyclonus are pretty dead on with the general plastic color of C@C/BiS Cyclonus. Other than that, the Henkei is lighter in tint.

    I have all 3 versions of Cyclonus (classic, Henkei, and RTS) IMO I think RTS is the closest to being accurate.

    Just to echo everyone. The "RTS/Battle in Space" Cyclonus is close to G1 colors. That being said, the "Challenge at Cybertron" version is even more accurate if you're looking for more of a closer G1 representation.

    I was able to score a Henkei Cyclonus on ebay for $22 a couple weeks ago, so I'd like to thank the RTS Cyclonus for effectively killing the demand for the Henkei to the point where I was able to afford one. I own both versions and can't really pick a favorite.

    Besides the Henkei being more lavender than purple his eyes are also yellow in color, RTS have red eyes (If I remember correctly, I don't have him handy atm).
    I have all three blue/purple/lavender Cycloni :) 
    And the two red versions, I <3 this mold.

    Henkei Cyclonus targetmaster, Mr Shinypants is awesome.

    Henkei Nightstick definitely looks the best, but I still love all my Nightsticks just the same.

    Um. Henkei Cyclonus' eyes are molded in pink and given a thinned out coat of red. They still look a bit pinkish overall though.

    RtS Cyclonus' eyes are molded in clear red.
