I don't like that Cyclonus, I think that must be the first henkei I like less that the hasbro version, Hound looks so much better as does Cheetor

Egad, Cyclonus is made of ass and fail. Hasbro for me on that one. Other two... nice enough, but not really making me think "must have." Hasbro all round, I think.

Keeewwwll. I'll be getting Cyclonus and maybe Hound. I don't mind the US version of him. But Cyclonus. Oooooh, definitely want. I'll probably pick up both, call one Cyclonus and the other Armada.

I feel Cyclonus is to heavily chromed for me and it gives off a real cheapness feel. i think i'll stick with hasbro's one and give it a litte paint up. Hound on the other hand is very nice, the main thing here is all the green matchs, but will have to see hasbros final release before i can pick.

cheetor sadly still looks like a yellow turd tho

As usual, they look pretty much the same but with more of that cheap-looking "chrome". I never liked the "chrome" parts on G1 figures, and I still don't like them today. They don't look like real chrome, they just look cheap and make the figure uglier, in my opinion.

cyclonus looks awesome but i'm not feeling the chrome gun(do love the purple chrome wings though)... looks like i'll have to get both and do a weapon swap... lol

as for hound, i'm not sure which i prefer... the henkei one has the white stars, but i'm sure reprolabels will release an upgrade set for him with those... i'll have to wait and see... as for cheetor, i think i like the original version is better (same goes for dinobot)

Oh, just noticed this, but Henkei Cyclonus' horns look a tad sharper/edgier also. I was wondering if that was gonna be different due to US toy laws and whatnot, looks like it is.

Well, I never expected to say this but I think I'll be picking up Hasbro's Cyclonus. Why did Takara have to use that terrible purple. Sometimes anime accuracy is not a good thing people!

Hound looks really nice though, will pick him up for sure.

Cyclonus looks very nice, I may get this instead of the Hasbro version. I also noticed there’s no chrome on Cheetor. Still may pass on him though.

I think they chromed this head and throwing stars. Either that or it's a really shiny gold paint.

I think I will stick with the Hasbro versions of these. I really don't like the color used on Cyclonus, and I don't think the differences on Hound are really worth the extra money.

That's what I'm trying to justify. More paint apps, but I don't know if it'll be worth the extra cash. But I do like the darker green, and the white accent around the bot symbol. It helps makes the symbol stand out a bit more. But I could always just order some reprolabels and add them on myself.

When I saw the pics of Hound, I was disappointed with the color. I thought he look a little too "day-glo" green. That will (hopefully)probably be fixed before it comes out. I liked Hound in G1, so regarless of the green color, I am buying him.
