    I'm trying to start up my Classics collection and am torn between the two. Which do you guys prefer?

    I use universe Cyclonus as And His Armada, and i use the Battle in Space Cyclonus as Cyclonus. I love the purple on the BIS one and is what i recommend.

    Between those two, Henkei. Have you considered Battle in Space Cyclonus?

    The only only only annoying thing about him is that there are two grey plastics; one is slightly more pink. It's fairly difficult to notice, however.

    Challange at Cybertron and Battle in Space for sure. The only thing good about the henkei version is the targetmaster..

    Of those two, I like the Henkei one much better, but as people have mentioned, BiS/CaC is probably the best coloration.... Though for some reason, I still like the Henkei.

    Another vote for BiS Cyclonus. It's the most G1 accurate color scheme available and it has Targetmaster goodness. :)

    Henkie looks like he's right out of the cartoon, the 2.0 one, not so much.

    BiS Cyclonus is going to be your best bet.

    I agree with most. Out of those two, definitely the Henkei. But Battle in Space Cylonus is nice too. I personally have Henkei as my Cyclonus and 2 BiS as his Armada. I'm not a fan of the Universe color scheme.

    Henkei looks like anything BUT cartoon inspired. But then neither do the other two since Cyclonus was rarely rendered as outright purple in the cartoon. Battle in Space has what I'd call the most attractive coloring, and if you find the set at markdown it's the cheapest option by far. Henkei Nightstick is fantastic (and yes, I did buy a henkei Cyc JUST to have that Targetmaster), but BiS Nightstick does a good job of mimicking it without the chrome.

    Henkei or Battle in Space. Universe is decent but the colors are pretty crappy if you're looking for a better G1 representation.

    Universe...cheaper and isn't a pastel easter colored Cyclonus.

    With that said, I wouldn't go with either. The Battle In Space Cyclonus is the best.

    That's precisely what I am doing. The BIS one is as good as the Henkei, and much cheaper. None of this Henkei or nothing stuff, the BIS version is a damn fine release.

    If your TV Screen/monitor has its brightness setting cranked, and colour setting set to "pink", maybe...
