    Bonjourno! thought I would share the purple goodness that is Henkei Cyclonus with you all.

    I'm aware most will already know what he's going to be like as you probably own Uni Cyclonus however the Henkei version has scored pole position with me due to its GeeWun goodness.

    Plane mode - not much to shout about, quite cool however the legs are a little flimsy due to not having any sort of catch to keep the 2 halfs togeather when they are moved up over the thigh.

    Nightstick - Fantastic job with this fellow, the chrome looks really good on his legs and gun barrel and again nice to see them sticking closely to the G1 colours, this has got to be one of the best uses of Henkei chrome yet!!!

    Cyclonus Robot Mode - I love this mold so much, he really is a great action figure with fantastic proportions and nice poseability, he is jointed at the Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Upper arms, Upper Thigh, Lower Thigh, Knee and Toes

    Comparison Shot with Uni Cyclonus - C'mon tell me you dont love the Oompa Loompa Cyclonus the best :)

    Henkei Chrome = Good ??

    Shockingly the chrome really suits this toy, on some others like Grimlock it was a bit of overkill but on Cyclonus it kind of gives him a feel of quality, its applied nicely without any splashes or gaps.

    What's up with the different-colored nosecone? I kind of wish he was made entirely out of that colored plastic.

    And darn you for getting it already!

    I'm thinking this thread should be in the Feedback forum.

    C'mon, you knew posting your review here was your best shot at being front-paged. :p 

    Really liking that one, the chrome looks awesome on both figures.

    As much as I like the chrome (especially on Nightstick), I can't help but think the Henkei one looks too "lavendar." I may still pick up Henkei Cyclonus. But I really like how the universe one looks like he's shrouded in darkness, and the eyes seem to pop on the face of the Universe one more (even though I hate that it's unpainted). Still... may wind up picking this one up, and giving Nighstick to Universe Cyclonus....

    I'll be sure to pick this up at some point in the future, I just wish that the nosecone was the same color as the rest of his body.

    Why is Takara poorer at matching paint to plastic than Hasbro?

    They did the same thing with Henkei Prime.

    Wow :eek:  That's what I'm talking about :D  Makes Uni Cyclonus look so bad by comparison. Picking two of these up now to keep one sealed me thinks/

    Thanks for sharing.
