TFClub has posted new images of Henkei Cyclonus. These high resolution images reveal great detail. To note - Cyclonus’s Targetmaster partner, Nightstick, has a slightly different paint scheme than previously seen. This figure is due out this month. Some of the images mirrored here.

He just keeps looking better and better. This will be the first Henkei figure that I order (just what I need, another line to start on).

Sorry, I prefer the Classics release over the Henkei release. I absolutely love the deep purple on the classics version. The lavender is too bright and the chrome is tacky.

The pics look good. I think I like Hasbro's better. (which is rare for me).

I do like the chrome and black on Nightstick. The purple on Cyclonus in these shots look better than the previously seen pictures.

I don't mind the chrome but I wish the purple was darker. Oh well, this means I save a bunch by getting the Universe one instead. He looks so good in Seibs' G1 Cyclonus gallery!

Why is it every time pictures of either version of the toy are show it's like people have never seen the original Cyclonus in the cartoon, comic book, or toy. Because the original toy matches the Hasbro version and the Marvel Transformers Comics. The TakTom version matches the cartoon model. They did this for a reason. To make the fans happy. I'll be buying both because Cyclonus is one of my all time favorites. Neither version is better then the other. They represent different versions of the same character. They're perfectly accurate to the versions they represent. And both figures are equally awesome.

It's best to assume every link I post is NSFW, and every post I make is just me taking the piss.

I still prefer the Hasbro one, but Henkei Nightstick is now looking damn awesome.

I'm already getting Henkei Houn, Ratchet and maybe Hotshot, so I don't think I can justify Henkei Cyclonus just for Nightstick :P

There's representing different versions of a character and there's dropping the ball. Cyclonus, Astrotrain and Jetfire figures may fit the the former but some are just weird, i.e. Starscream and Megatron.

Me too, I was all over the Henkei version at first but now I'm definitely getting the Universe version. Henkei Hound was a no-brainer for me but the darker colors of the US Cyclonus is winning me over, especially after Ryan posted those pictures the other day.
