    Here is my Cyclonus 2.0. This one was actually a request from my brother. He bought the Cyclonus figure and wanted me to paint him up for him. I already did a Universe Cyclonus so I decided to use a different shade of purple. It came out lighter than my first version so I call him my Henkei Cyclonus.

    I prefer the regal dark purple. The henkei purple looks too much like some parade float.

    Sorry, I was referring to the actual henkei version. Your version here looks great. I like the vibrant purple.

    I like the darker purple too but if I was going to do something again, I figured try something different. I think I did a better job applying the paint on this one than I did on my other Cyclonus. I guess if I had another Cyclonus, I could use the same purple again and make his armada.

    I don't think it's lighter at all, merely more reddish in hue, and less blue. :)  That said, I kinda favor the more blue end of the spectrum of purples, but they both look really sweet.

    I like the bluer Universe one. It looks a little closer to his G1 colors but metallic- which is awesome. But, like everyone else, they both look great and I realy like each of them. Man, I need to get that figure.
