Got my set in the post yesterday and saved opening till late so Rodimus was my last transformer of 2010 and Cyclonus the first of 2011. I own both of the original Classics versions so that is what I shall compare them to. They both look almost identical to the challenge at cybertron set with the exception of the faction symbols. Rodimus is by far the weaker of the two due to the mould in general and some choices. The decision to use all red and gray plastic is a crying shame as one of the things I like most about the original is the light piping and detailed cockpit. This release does away with both of those, seems to have fewer paint apps and feels a far cheaper lower grade of plastic. A shame but since he's going to stay on my shelf in Robot mode it doesn't matter too much I suppose. Cyclonus and Nightstick are still a nice couple of transformers moulds that every serious transformers fan should own at least once, they are nicely designed and as a plus unlike Rodimus, the colours are superior to the original. Unfortunately Cyclonus and Nightstick both suffer the same plastic grade as Rodimus which is a severe disappointment since it doesn't feel of as good a quality as the originals. Further disappointment came when transforming and finding that Cyclonus' nose cone is bent in an inconceivable manner making him look like he's sniffing or reaching for a higher signal. Overall, I don't feel they were worth the £25 I paid for them, the Cyclonus is nice and the comic is a good extra but I would far rather have sacrificed the diecast matrix necklace (I'm guessing it's for a pendant or some such) for a plastic quality closer to the originals. I give the set 6/10, have the plastic felt better and Cyclonus not had a bent nose it would be a 8/10. If you have both of the originals, I struggle to recommend it but if you have yet to experience the awesome of Cyclonus, or are looking for something cheaper to don the protector armour, this might be worth a look. Pics and comparisons in the morning.
