Notes: We used white and black backgrounds for these shots as we're still experimenting and learning photography.

This custom has been given as a gift to ThyVipera @ Procustomizers for the Procustomizer Secret Santa 2012 event. I was very honored to make the custom for him because I see him as one of top customizers.
What motivated me to start this custom was Cyclonus's is protrayal as a loyal warrior in G1 series. Being an ex-soldier myself, that is something Ican appreciate. The requested theme from ThyVipera couldn't have been better: "Anything G1/ Classics G1, especially Decepticons.".
So the timing really worked out, which led to the making a this great figure as quoted in the above the image gallery.
The mold I used was Reveal the Shield: Cyclonus and Nightstick that came from this 2 pack: here on Amazon.com.
As of Dec-31-2012, probably the cheapest way to get the same mold new without hotrod is to buy the Universe Version: Transformers Universe Cyclonus.
If you are a collector, and you like the premium Japanese version you can get it here: Takara Cyclonus.
