Custom Cobra Decepticon Cyclonus X-30

cyclonusX30
Your fellow HISS tanker DarkHorse made this custom Cobra Decepticon Cyclonus X-30. Also featured is a custom Baroness and Decepticon Ravage !

"After thinking about the next SDCC exclusive Joe/ TF crossover set, this seemed like a no brainer. I got a 25th PP Conquest X-30, hit it with primer, Metallic purple then clear coat, then added the decals from Cobrastickers. They even had a Cyclonus sticker lol. The Baroness is a bash of various different Baroness's with pilot Scarlett's gear. The helmet fits perfectly."

Mr Hebime:
Looks great! Sound concept, perfect execution.
DarkHorse:








RolandofGilead:
That is amazing!

Since SDCC I was trying to think of a suitable Transformers update, and all I could come up with is turning the GI Joe shuttle into Astrotrain.

This is so much better, almost a perfect fit.

The Barones is a bash of various different Baroness's with pilot Scarlett's gear. The helmet fits perfectly. I always liked the JvsC head the most. The Ravage is an articulated figure that transforms into a flash drive.
orezona:
Nice! I have one of those Ravage USBs as well.

This is super slick. Really like the use of that VvV Baroness head as well...

Great work!
kingross:
Beautiful... Cyclonus looks perfect as a Conquest. Diggin' the helmet on Baroness!
samantha:
Very nice. I love the paint choices.
DarkHorse:
Thanks for the kind words!

Going to be listing it on eBay this weekend. LMK if anyone is interested and I'll PM links when it's up.
Grippen:
Does that Ravage pen comes with open mouth or can you close it?

I probably can't afford it, but I'm definitely interested.
nighthawk:
Very nice!
Laser Viper:
That is F*%king badass!
A.V.A.C.:
Nice!
Zarana X:
Excellent work. The Conquest really suits Cyclonus.
DarkHorse:
Thanks fellas. Here's a shop pic -

deadfish:
that my friend is effin incredible!!!!! Wow!
RolandofGilead:
I can't tell you how much I love this. Cyclonus, and all the Decepticons from Transformers the Movie are my favorites. I would love to see what you could do to realize Joe/Cobra versions of Scourge and Galvatron next.
Dragasses:
it's so pretty.
dsrader:
very nice

Hmmm, which vehicles would you use as the base for those? I guess you might be able to shoehorn a Moccasin/Sting Raider into Scourge, but Galvatron would be tricky, particularly without recycling the HISS.

But yeah, this custom is frikkin' awesome. Hasbro should be taking notes.

Though honestly I wouldn't be surprised if next year's (assuming they continue) was Joe-themed. Maybe a "Powerglide" Rattler or a "Warpath" MOBAT?
wrw311:
This is Fantastic. All it needs is some killer custom packaging!!! (its pretty much why I buy these at SDCC)
Colonel Bludd:
TOTALLY ORIGINAL. I bet no one thought of this until today. Very nice!!!!
Str8cash:
I am stealing this from you. Amazing job !!!
Tomahawk:
" u got the touch!" very nice
lance858a:
Never realized how perfect the conquest is for cyclonus. The colors look perfect too. Nice work.
Starfighter:
Excellent Work!!!
80sKid:
Very cool! Great work on these! I hope Hasbro keeps this theme going for years.
krztfr:
Looks awseome but this is Cyclonus so why not make another pilot to go with the set along with Barroness except make it his target master in GI Joe form?
Articulated:
That's how you f&%ing do it right there. Wow! A fantastic, simple, elegant concept brilliantly executed. Welp, off to look for a conquest on ebay....
Hedcase:
That is beautiful, thanx for sharing this awesome idea. Now watch the price of Conquests spike, good thing I know where to find one local :-)
ucsf:
Pretty cool stuff, really has the vibe.

I don't always comment on customs, but when I do, it's to say that my jaw is on the floor.
soundwave84:
love it!
Nemesis*Prime:
OUTSTANDING WORK! Really the paint job looks brilliant and with the decals and Baroness and Ravage it really just completes the whole ensemble perfectly. Plus, Cyclonus, one of my favorite Cons, so excellent character choice.
