I really like how you used dark panel lining instead of the usual glowing style that we see on FoC character designs.

Thanks! I wanted to try a FoC mold with more of the comic vibe to it. It has me wanting to try the same on some more WFC and FoC bots now.

I like it for the most part, but the purple feels too solid to me. I think it could do with a bit more silver to break up the almost solid purple of the figure. Have you considered making the frame around his chestplate and the piece where he had the decepticon symbol silver? I realize this is a pretty solid purple figure to begin with, but I feel like he's begging for some extra highlights to make him really stand out.
Just some constructive criticism.

Thanks for the suggestions! With this version I wanted to go for more of the comic color feel, hence the loads of purple, but I am working on a second version with the Cyclonus leg swap that will be getting more of a G1 toy coloring with a darker purple and a lot more silver. I your idea of making the trim ring on the chest silver and may use it on the second version. Thanks for the input :D
