i cant quite decide on my next tf. Cyclonus, or Astrotrain? the choice is yours.
Astrotrain. I can see the appeal of a G1 cartoon accurate Astrotrain, whereas... well, I think someone else said something like "The 2nd in command to the Emperor of Destruction should not be lilac."
I'm a big fan of Henkei Astrotrain but I gotta go with Cyclonus on this one.
I have both Classics and Henkei Astrotrain, plus Universe Cyclonus. Henkei Astrotrain has maybe the best paint job on a deluxe but isn't Cyclonus a better toy?
I have both, U can't go wrong. I like Cyclonus a little more because of the transformation and the target master. I think the only down side is the color.
I like Astrotrain better. I have classics Cyclonus and Henkei Astro.
You can't go wrong with Astrotrain. No offense but despite staying true to the G1 toy's colour, I can't help but to feel that Hasbro's version is kinda cheap. The 90%+ white overalls ain't helpin much, either.
Cyclonus, on the other hand is pretty awesome in his dark, evil shade of blue with a purplish hue. Lilac Cyclonus? No thank you siree.
It's your call at the end of the day, but for my collection I've chosen henkei Astro + uni Cyclo.
astrotrain. the purple is cool for Cyclonus, but i think he looks just as good in Classics.
if ur getting henkei, definitely go for astrotrain.. the color on henkei cyclonus is not great, hasbro's cyclonus is much better.. i prefer the cyclonus mold to astrotrain, but yeah.. henkei astrotrain is my choice,
If you like the Henkei colours, I'd go for Cyclonus, because he's a better figure with a really cool transformation. But if you've got the money, get both! You can't have enough purple Transformers really...
IMO Hasbro Cyclonus is better than henkei, but I'm a big fan of the Astrotrain mold. Go with Cyclonus.
I voted Astrotrain, just because i already have uni. cyclonus.
Definitely get Henkei Astrotrain if you can only get one of those two Henkei.
For Cyclonus, even though I have (& like) both, I like the darker Hasbro one better.
Going just on the figure, it's Cyclonus in a landslide. If you don't care about his paint job (or don't like the Easter egg look), then pick up his Classics version (cheaper) and get Henkei Astrotrain.
I have both in Classics/Universe and Henkei...
Both Cyclonus' are displayed (Henkei = Cyclonus, Universe = "his Armada"). Classics Astrotrain just got booted for Henkei and is now in the process of getting Combaticon Blast Off'ed.
They're both awesome figures no matter the color scheme, but I'd put Astrotrain over Cyclonus as far as Henkei vs Cl./Uni. comparisons go. Just because with him I prefer the cartoon accuracy over the G1 toy accuracy.
Anyway, I have no answer. Get both. If you can't afford both right now. Pick one, buy that now. Buy the other one next time you get cash to spare. They're both worth it.
In the end get both but I voted Cyclonus because I like that one more. You can't go wrong with either.
Whoa..I think I just tied it up at 19. In a pinch, Astrotrain. Both Henkeis are spectacular, but Astrotrain's is vastly superior to his Classics version, whereas with Cyclonus, you can't go really go wrong either way. Plus one, carry the three = Classics Cyclonus and Henkei Astrotrain FTW.
Triple changer for the win.
If you don't have either mold and you want one of the two, go for Cyclonus. He's one of the best Deluxe molds to come out in a long time.
