Hi Starquest321,

have you gone through this steps,

Step 1. Remove the battery from the device and wait for 30 seconds and then put the battery again on your device. If your phone doesn’t has the remove bale battery like Nexus 4, then power down the phone and keep it powered off for 5 minutes. This will turn off your device permanently.
Step 2. After that Boot your device in to Recovey Mode. Samsung Users use Volume Up+ Home + Power keys. If you have the other Android device then do a Google search how to enter in recovery mode.
Step 3. Once your android device is in Recovery Mode, Go to the “wipe cache partition” option and select it.
Step 4. After that go back to the recovery main menu and reboot the device by “reboot system now” option.
Step 5. If the device again stuck on Android Boot Loop pull out the battery again and repeat the above steps. This time also “wipe data/factory reset” and then reboot device.
Now your device will come out of the Android Boot Loop and at the first time the device will take some time to reboot.

Thanks & Regards,
Krunal T. Tailor

The issue is that I keep getting stuck at the "person" like blue figure . . and you cannot boot into recovery. Looks like a soft brick?

How long after wiping the cache partition do you wait, I started and had a loop let the phone run all night plugged into the wall charger, came back in the morning and phone was still looped. Then tried again, with the instructions you gave, still looped. it goes through the initial boot, says upgrading apps, finishes that then sits at the cyanogen mod screen for ever, the word cyanogen just goes dull then bright then dull then bright. so its definitely still looped
