    Made a gallery on my site - in short I love his robot mode, but the vehicle mode isn't hanging together too well in my case ;(

    The lavender is a bit too light for my taste. I'll just wait for Classics Cyclonus locally.

    It is slightly oversaturated by light. The lavender is the same as for Beast Wars Second Galvatron (or so it appears to me)

    It's a fine figure but I like the classics colors more.

    Nightstick in alt mode looks cool, but in the 3rd pic he looks like he's doing ballet with that silver bottom.

    I've seen the classics figure up close and personal, but couldn't bring myself to buy him.

    That being said, with the current exchange rate, Henkei Cyclonus is almost 2 times as much as Classics Cyclonus. I don't know if he is that much better.

    I still can't get into the pastel color scheme. I much prefer the Universe version.

    Looks good but Uni Cyclonus is good enough for me. The darker colors grew on me.

    I've always thought that it looked like it was painted by Prince.

    I adjusted the colours for my laptop monitor, it might be slightly darker than it appears.

    He looks exactly like he did on the cartoon. (At least that is how I see him)

    I AM SO GLAD I DIDN'T BUY THAT ONE!!!

    Not only did I save 10-20 bucks by buying Universe Cyclonus, but that lavender, is way to bright.

    Like I said, that isn't Cyclonus, it's -


    MY LITTLE CYCLONUS!!!

    or

    CYCLONUS SHORTCAKE!!!

    That toy there is just, wow...

    Universe one looks more menacing, and not a girls version of a Transformer.

    GET IT!?

    Female Autobots...

    The way I see it, this Cyclonus has a lot more confidence in his masculinity. He's probably taking Enzyte.
