    I picked up the Cyclonus vs. Rodimus two-pack the other day and now I have a conundrum: I can't decide which version of Cylconus I want to use as my main one.

    It's between the original Universe 2.0 release and this one.

    So tell me: which version of Cyclonus do you like best and why?

    EDIT: Version* I misspelled the thread title. Go me.

    2-pack Cyclonus as Cyclonus, Universe Cyclonus as His Armada. Simple.

    Challenge at Cybertron. Same as RTS but without that stupid rub sign.

    BIS Cyclonus hands down for me...the coloring on the 2 pack figure seems more true to his original coloring to me...I spiffed mine up a bit with some metallic coloring to the lighter purple parts...mostly so he would match my similarily spiffed up Scourge, but yeah...

    I actually like the original version better as Cyclonus. I re-purpose the RtS repaint as Armada, but only because I got used to the original release as the primary Galvatron loyalist. I honestly think the RtS is the better version of the two namely because of the show accurate coloring and the fact Nightstick is colored better as well.

    BIS is my favorite. I just love the color scheme....not too purple, but just purple enough.

    I wanted to use the BIS one as Cyclonus. Hasbro nailed the G1 colours with that one. But sticking him next to Universe Galvatron and Generations Scourge... he didn't fit, at all. Those two are bright and vibrant, whereas BIS is dull and de-saturated. So Universe Cyclonus stole the silver Nightstick, and BIS can hang around as "Armada" when he feels like it.

    Kinda sucks, because the BIS has much tighter connections, making his vehicle mode feel far more stable.

    I'd go with Universe 2.0.

    The selling point for me is the darker purple colour scheme.

    Yes the light purple is cartoon accurate (I won't take that away from the mold) but, it just does not come off as nice to me.

    I personally like Henkei Cyclonus as my main Cyclonus, and I use the Challenge 2-pack Cyclonus' as his armada.

    Battle in Space Cyclonus = leader, and the rest as his armada. RTS is the same just has the rubsign. I have all 5 versions of the mold and that is how I have it set up.

    I use Henkei Cyclonus as the main one in my display, one BiS in my office, one BiS as his Armada and have the Universe 2.0 version in storage.

    I love Henkei Cyclonus -- I think the colors are just brilliant and dig the chrome. Chrome Nightstick is also great but the BiS Nightstick comes close.

    I prefer TFU 2.0 Cyclonus, since it's color scheme is closer to the original G1 toy, which is more important to me than the cartoon. BiS Cyclonus serves as 'Armada' in my display.

    I don't have BiS Cyclonus, but I think it looks pretty good. I don't like the plain Universe version, but I used silver Sharpie on the grey parts, and put the purple and red triangle symbols on his wings, and he looks a lot better.

    Henkei Cyclonus all the way for me...... As far as coloring for this figure goes, it really all depends on which episodes.... lol He is lighter in the episodes where the animation was best in.

    I have both. I prefer the two pack one because of the more accurate colors.
