    Legends Cyclonus of course!! But I bet you knew that already!

    I just don't have the patience to wait for Universe 2.0 Cyclonus so I decided to make my own!

    Actually I just made this from leftovers while doing my Bruticus Minimus, phase 4: Blast Off!!

    Other than the scratched styrene parts and the prefab ball joints, this is made completely from Jetfire and Starscream. I started to look in my parts bin at one point, but then thought it would be more fun to stick to just these two figures. Also if I wanted (or you wanted) to make another I wouldn't have to track down odd bits.

    He has articulation, not as good as my Legends Combaticons, but still very good!

    Head is on a ball joint
    Waist rotates
    Thighs and knees are ball jointed, and the feet are hinged
    Shoulders are ball jointed
    Elbows are double ball jointed

    Bot mode looks a tad wonky, but still real good for a Legends size!

    I do believe the alt mode shines though!! Four big 'ol nuclear engines and pretty faithful G1-esque look to it! I like the little gun pod up top, too. Reminds me of the Universe 2.0 Nightstick.

    I still need to build something for the upper chest area, just haven't figured out how yet due to the transformation. Also the gun needs a proper handle. In a funny way, the colors work well the way they are for a bada$$ seeker type ship. But he IS Cyclonus, so only purple will do!

    Thanks for stopping by! All comments welcome, and keep on bashin' ---BH

    ...man, I thought I'd get to be the one to point out how he looks like the love child of a klingon battleship and an x-wing.

    That's awesome - I love seeing work on small scales like this, 'cause there's no real margin for error.

    This is a super-creative bash. I love it. He looks great in both modes, and melding these two together was a brilliant idea! Well done!

    Wow that's very Cyclonus-accurate. Well, aside from the colors, but you're probably still gonna paint it purple...right?

    Glad you're using that Jetfire for all it's worth. This guy looks great! After you mentioned Nightbeat I thought it would be cool to give this guy a gun mode so deluxe Cyc could hold him.
