"...we have to astonish them."

Like other X-fans who are also 'Clix players, I have been lamenting the lack of a "really good" Cyclops figure for many moons now. There are a couple of "decent" ones out there, but there's nothing that really knocks one out of the park.

Aside from that, I've also wanted a good-looking Cyke to field. Sure, Scott's had his share of costumes, and not all of them have been winners, but I think that the look that John Cassaday gave him in Astonishing X-Men #1 was solid. (I must admit that I'm not a huge fan of the current version of that costume, with the gold wrist and ankle cuffs, as opposed to the straps that Cassaday drew.)

With those things in mind, I decided to repaint a "decent" Cyclops figure - from the "Danger Room" set - with a good-looking costume. What I came up with was this:
Cyclops - Astonishing X-Men costume

As Cyclops is easily my favorite X-Man I've been wanting a new decent version for a while now. Sculpt looks good.

Not a huge Cyclops fan myself, but the DR Cyclops was actually had a pretty amazing dial. 10 range, 10 attack, 3 damage for 40 points? Gross!
