    So Hasbro's got me going down a path, and I need help.

    CHUG Springer has an Earth Helicopter Mode
    CHUG Galvatron has an Earth-Tank Mode
    CHUG Blurr has an Earth Car Mode
    CHUG Scourge has a Earth Bomber Mode
    CHUG Kup has an Earth Truck Mode.

    First this irked my "Geeewun" sensibilities, but then my brain started clicking and I've got some figures picked to bring Roddy and Optimus into the same pattern. But I am STUCK on Cyclonus. The roster of the "core" 2010 Autobot cast is felxible, but if I'm going to have a "matched set," we need all 3 heralds of Unicron on the same page.

    I'd love to pick a figure that was at a scale where I could just swap-in Cyclonus's head from his CHUG figure, but push come to shove I'll take ANY good idea.

    WHO SHOULD EARTH MODE CYCLONUS BE MADE FROM????

    To my memory, the only figures that have Cyclonus' distinct forward-spet wing deal are Cyclonus (duh), BM Jetstorm (too Cybertronian for your needs) and Animated Starscream (wrong aesthetics). So I wouldn't know which specific figure to go for here, but if you were desperate enough to make your own, I'd suggest basing the vehicle mode of this bastard: Su-47 (S-37 Berkut) Experimental Fighter Aircraft - Air Force Technology (it's waht the aforementioned Starscream was based off, after all). That help?

    There have been a myriad of figures that have had forward swept wings.

    Very recently, Autobot Alliance Terradive, which in theory could make a great Cyclonus.
