    Just a quick question or two. Can either version of the G1 Cyclonus hold a Commemorative or Encore Nightstick? Is Nightstick too loose or too tight in the fist hole?

    you would likely have to have the Targetmaster version to have chance for it to work.

    No it will not.

    TM Cyclonus' fist hole is too big and the regular Cyclonus' fist hole is too small.

    How "too big" is "too big"? Will a little clear nail polish make up the difference?

    I think what they're saying is that the peg for Nightstick is too big for the hole in the fist of a pre-Targetmaster Cyclonus. Considering that both versions of G1 Cylonus are pratically identical outside of the slight change in the fist hole size and the weapon, trying to get a non-TM Cyclonus to hold Nightstick just isn't worth it.

    You'll be spending a lot of time building up layers of nail polish as it's quite loose in G1 TM Cyclonus' hand.

    You mean the one that came with Stepper/Ricochet, right? Not the Universe/Henkei new mold?

    Just went downstairs to check this out. Reissue Nightstick, from TFC Stepper/CS Ricochet, has a smaller peg extended from the original peg, so he can be held in the Stepper fist as well as the shoulder mount. That smaller peg extension gets in the way of TM Cyclonus's shallow fist hole. But the reissue does fit on the top in jet mode.

    Seemed like everyone else was referring to the new mold Universe/Henkei Nightstick.

    I cut the smaller peg off of Nightstick, slapped a coat of clear nail polish on the remaining peg, and he fits just fine in TM Cyclonus' hand.
