My Cyclonus (drawn for the Regeneration Plus fancomics #2, cover A) is inspired by two different toy versions and also to the Marvel Comics art style appreciated in the 80s. 

I've got the idea to draw the "nose-pack" behind its back by studying the Destron D-70 vintage toy made by Takara in 1986.
A personal tribute to that model, in some way.

Other solutions are derived from the modern Henkei/Generations toy line, like the kneepads, the shoulders and the flaps on the forearms.
Head, chest, abs, arms and legs are a mix of styles inspired by the vintage toy and more.
Colors are an homage to the characteristic style of the old Marvel Comics.

The same comics are the inspiration source for Blast Off style as well.

Hope you can appreciate!
