It's been a while for new galleries here on Seibertron.com, but that's about to change. Thanks to our friends at Hasbro, we've got the entire first wave of the highly anticipated Transformers War for Cybertron KINGDOM series. We weren't sure who to focus on first, but after reading comments on the Seibertron.com forums and messages from the Seibertron.com staff, it seems like Voyager Class Cyclonus was highest in-demand. So on that note ...

Behold! Seibertron.com's first gallery from the Transformers War for Cybertron KINGDOM series is none other than Voyager Class Cyclonus. This toy is probably the best rendition of him yet ... especially if you are a fan of the cartoon look for Cyclonus. He's a good size Voyager, taller than his case mate Optimus Primal from the same class size in Kingdom and comparable in size (but bulkier?) than recent Voyagers from the past couple of years. At a minimum, he has a lot more going on with his transformation and has a lot of great points of articulation including wrist, ankle, wrist, waist and multiple neck joints! His space jet mode is incredible -- all of his robot kibble disappears which gives it a very "mini-Masterpiece" like feel.

Cyclonus is the Unicron creation of dead Decepticon parts from the Transformers animted film from 1986. Bombshell? Skywarp? Who knows and who cares! Cyclonus is Galvatron's very loyal 2nd-in-command. He is the Decepticon's Ultra Magnus. He's awesome, needs more toys, and especially needs a Masterpiece toy after all of these years.

Our Cyclonus gallery includes comparison pictures with the rest of Kingdom's Wave 1 products. In addition, we pulled out all of the stops to include other comparison shots we thought you'd like to see with other versions of Cyclonus (Cyclonuses? Cycloni?) as well as comparisons with Transformers Universe Galvatron, Generations Scourge and even Titans Return Galvatron and Cyclonus. His Targetmaster partner Nightstick even makes an appearance!

Cyclonus and the other figures from this line are expected to hit retail in the next 4 to 8 weeks. When you get yours, be sure to share your thoughts. In the meantime, check out all 200+ photos of Cyclonus by clicking on any of the images below. His gallery includes all of the images you've come to expect from Seibertron.com over the years. Stay tuned for additional Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom galleries throughout this Thanksgiving week! Let us know what you think of Cyclonus here in our discussion topic about this toy line.

He looks pretty good. I wasn't too keen on him to start with, but this gallery is making him look like a winner. He'll be going on my TF:TM shelf most likely.

It uses the "accordion" transformation, which I think was introduced by my personal favorite Transformers Prime Robots In Disguise Deluxe Class Vehicon, and used rarely or few times since.

Definitely down for Cyclonus, glad I have him on preorder. Guess ol’ Reveal the Shield Cyclonus will go on the IDW shelf.

That appears to be Alternate Universe Optimus Prime floating in space judging from his bent antennae. I guess in his universe the Ark blows up on the way to Earth?

The Golden Disk cards show one of three Destinies for the characters. That's just one of Optimus's three Destinies.

Very impressive transformation. No backpack outside of the wings which are supposed to be anyway.

The nosecone transformation is also very clever yes. Instead of telescoping needle nose like Universe, it splits down the middle and folds the needle in.

Very cool.

This of course makes it more confusing as to why he's in Kingdom and not SS86. He's got that level of detailed transformation and movie accurate robot mode. Not enough slots in SS to go around?

Kingdom would have had more G1 toys in it if not for Beast Wars sharing the same anniversary as TFTM. Kingdom also has Galvatron, Ultra Magnus, and Rodimus Prime in it too, as well as non-TFTM G1 guys like Warpath, Huffer, Pipes, Tracks, Slammer, Inferno, and rereleases of Arcee and Wheeljack.

Which is my point. Why are certain figures that are clearly meant for the TFtM 86 anniversary in Kingdom?

I can understand G1 updates that were not in the movie to be in the Kingdom line up but movie guys with clearly superior transformations and robot modes? I understand Magnus as a retool and Warpath being in Kingdom, but Cyclonus? Even when his pal Scourge made it into SS-86?

Which makes it the more puzzling how these guys are getting divided. I just don't understand why he's here and Scourge is in SS-86, other than class slots already being taken up in SS, and having to shuffle other figures around, which means the SS-86 slots are limited?

Maybe just a single wave? Already have 3 Deluxes,2 Voyagers and 1 Leader that we know of.

Kind of makes you think what if anything else there may be in SS-86 if most of the rest of main cast is in Kingdom.

Did anyone ever say that Cyclonus wasn't going to be in Studio Series? I don't know about you guys, but I could totally go for a darker repaint. Maybe he'll show up there later? I'm holding out hope.

Nothing has been said that he can't be there later in a darker color. But that would be even stranger. A toy accurate purple over the animation accurate lavender? A non animation accurate re-deco in an animation accurate line of so far new molds?

Great gallery!

I'm still so on the fence about this guy. I love Cyclonus, and it's probably the most accurate CHUG Cyclonus, seemingly a nifty transformation to boot, and will scale well with Studio Series Scourge and Kingdom Galvatron...

...but I love the original Universe 2.0 Cyclonus, and think his robot mode looks BETTER if not more accurate. And if we're just chasing most accurate, I already have FT Quietus for that at MP Scale. And I already have a hard enough time justifying spending space on CHUG and MP collections without trying to justify keeping a second take on a character.

Up to now in WFC, I've let the in-store moment decide. I didn't think I needed a new CHUG Sideswipe... until I saw Siege Sideswipe on the shelf in person and felt an immediate "yes, I need that" response. Same with Hound and Wheeljack. (And I regretted none of those purchases.) But the new Kingdom packaging shows so little of the figure -- and in the case of Cyclonus here, doesn't show the legs, which are the clumsiest looking part.

Maybe better run through all these photos one more time and see if I can make up my mind...

I would disagreee that that color is accurate. Just watched some G1 Season 3 last night while cropping photos. It looks darker to me. It seems to depend on which episode you're talking about and even which scene. I'm not a fan of the lighter lavender and prefer the darker coloring.

Because the third part of the WFC Trilogy would have had ALL of the TFTM toys if not for the Beast Wars toys taking up the space they needed.

Hard to be accurate when the color changes from episode to episode and scene to scene. I think they are going for something that looks like the movie coloring even if not 100% there, not so much the season 3 and 4 colors which had a habit of changing even between cuts of the same scene as you say.

In which case from all the colors Cyclonus has been, which one do you find most accurate, or at least more to your liking?

I like the dark purple of the G1 toy, which the Universe Cyclonus manages to get right in my view.

But I won't say this lavender is bad. Would I like it in a darker purple? Sure. I'd love it in a darker purple.

But its not something we have not seen before.

I think the Reveal the Shield "Rodimus vs. Cyclonus" one has the most middle-ground deco, being not too dark, not too bright, not too purple, and not too blue. A "just right" sweet spot of blue-violet.

Though, the Unite Warriors deco is pretty gorgeous too.
