    A simple repaint using the HFTD Terradive mold. Removed the head and replaced it with the Universe Cyclonus head. Some alterations were made to accommodate the head in altmode. Painted in purple, red, and gun metal metallics, and panel lined. Nightstick was painted now to look like "nightstick".

    As a Cyclonus fan, I have to say that I really like this one.

    Pretty cool. I love the paint job. Kind of looks like an earth mode Cyclonus to me.

    Really cool but the head could do with a coat of pant to make it match the body

    I knew it was inevitable that someone would do a Cyclonus repaint of this mold. It was just too perfect. Using the head of Universe Cyclonus..along with Nightstick..was a perfect move.

    I concur that it seems more of an Earth mode reformat than WFC (especially considering he presumably didn't exist during the time of the game unless Hasbro have retconned TFTM into non-existence). But that's just a naming preference. Fact is, both modes fit him pretty much perfectly, and the paintjob's spot-on. :thumb

    I like the idea, but first off I hate the new Terradive mold. In bot mode the cockpit looks like a.....yeah.

    He's suggesting that that part seems particularly well-named under the circumstances. Even though he's really referring to the nosecone. ;)

    Very cool! It does look like an Earth mode Cyclonus but still awesome.

    The way he's got it transformed doesn't help matters any. Those wings on the chest help the nosecone look more like part of the torso. With them splayed out like he has them, there's nothing to keep it from looking like he really likes having an earth mode.

    Nice custom. I don't know if I'd call it WFC but still cool. Nice job.

    I think Generations Cyclonus Earth Mode would be an applicable name :) 

    I really like this one a lot :)
