    That's a really cool idea lol makes more sense than anything else in canon.

    I personally want him to have Rook as both legs and even though I haven't seen Brawl in arm mode (i'm assuming it will have arm canons) and of course those limbs should be decoed in Purple.

    Finally picked him up and wow, I think I like this one better than silverbolt!! Love the purple, love the head sculpt, the the design of the jet mode and very much into the galvatron mode. 3 things bug me though: the parts form wings are too small, I wish that he had a different gun instead of just a silver repaint of silverbolt's gun, and galvatron's head needs a little more color to break up the purple. Don't pass up just because it is a repaint! B+

    Proof that Cyclonus used to be Skywarp.

    Haha I personally prefer that origin, but it occurred to me today that this Cyclonus' "hypnosis" power might be an homage to Bombshell.

    I picked up Cyclonus over the weekend and he has grown on me. i didn't like him at first, but after some reviews and decisions, I broke and got him.
    I figured that I have two spare limbs laying around meaning Alpha Bravo and Off Road an now picking up Mirage and Prowl as the final limbs, Galvatronus will be born!! The rest will be under Cyclonus mind control to serve under him.

    I'm planning on getting a couple Hasbro Blastoffs for my Galvatronus. I think that'll look sweet.

    I'm getting UW Bruticus though.

    He needs a team of sweeps and an orange cannon to be complete.

    IMO this is the best version of Cyclonus we've received yet. I was a fan of Universe and BiS Cyclonus until I saw this guy.

    CW Cyclonus knocks it out of the park compared to all of the deluxe versions of CHUG Cyclonus.

    He looks fantastic in bot mode and his space jet mode is spot on. Plus he has a Galvatron combiner torso mode which is just a really nice bonus IMO.

    I finally combined this guy last night with the Stunticons and he looks good and placed the Cyclonus's gun and Menasor's sword in his hands and Galvatronus is a badass!!

    I want to add that I picked up 3 out of 4 wave 4 CW and I have them combined with Galvatronus and man! Very nice and the joints are nice and tight and almost scary to turn or rotate them, but Damn nice though.

    I have Mirage, Sunstreaker Alpha Bravo and Off Road as limbs, and just picked up Prowl and not sure which limb he will be??

    I like cyclonus, but his hips are a bit loose, possibly due to degrading of the mold. The hips of bot mode have a bit of "give" before the ratchets kick in. I may pry him open to see what is going on in there. Anyone else have this with theirs?

    I went out and bought this guy today, completely because they announced a Galvatron that makes sense scale-wise with him. So good on you, Hasbro, your little scheme worked! :D . Lol, did anyone else do this for this reason?

    It's a pretty good Cyclonus. I still prefer the look of the RTS version, but I had always wished that mold was bigger. This is my go-to Cyclonus for this size of interaction. He's a better match against Whirl now, that's for sure.

    I'm personally not interested in the Combiner mode for this character, and will likely ignore it unless they release some killer-looking limb-bots.

    Edit: Man, does that purple plastic ever glow under blacklight.
