    Cyclonus out of shockwave... the whole idea came from a little box with some parts i had laying around so I decided as an "creative exercise" to come up with a character using just those parts so this is what I came out with. As you can see it has 2 different robot mode and Im not sure which one to use or if the whole thing is an epic fail or a win!!! by the way I'm using the classics cyclonus head so you have an Idea of the character, still not even sure if I should use that head. so please comments, suggestions, ideas are welcome anything that would help this guy out lol.

    Personally, I think you should leave the robot the way he is. Except add some more guns. :)  That's an awesome design.

    It looks interesting but I'm not so sure those parts work together. Nice effort though.

    Love the whole design, I'd definitely say that you should use a different head though, and possibly add some styrene of some sort to the front of the shins just to tighten up the look. As for the bot modes, I'm voting to keep both. Guns on back for normal mode and guns on arms for attack mode. Really great work though.

    Arrrgh! On the one hand, I love the on the shoulder look in 1a and 3a as I'm a big fan of that style. But I also love the overall shape and broad shoudler look of photo 3 and 4. WEight distribution is better in the design and plus, it just really screams Cyclonus more than the first two. I think also, the head is more prominent in photo 3 and 4.

    In the spaceship mode, the only minor thing that would make it perfect to me is if you could do something with those fingers sticking out.

    Fantastic Cyclonus regardless.

    Thank you :)  , those fingers sticking out can be folded back in , it was an alternate way of transforming the figure .

    I like it, the concept is good, alt mode looks nice, i would look into a more "movieish" head though

    Oh, okay. Then perfect!

    *EDIT* I like the head you chose because it looks like Cyclonus, tho' it can do with a color touchup.
