    So I watched till Episode 14 and noticed that Acid storm went from the more male looking seeker to a more female looking one from episode 12 to 14. Did they decide to change the gender mid production? this would explain why the toy bio says he and in the show it's clearly a she. (And yes their both Acid storm it's not two different characters)

    They presumably fixed it to match the voice actor. Acid Storm didn't really do anything or speak prior to "Siloed" so it was probably just a character model oversight.

    I say its an animation error. Thats the problem with all genricons being seekers, What we persume is Acid Storm is incosistant with his model.

    Also all the Generibots looking like Ironhide (except the refery of the cube who was colored like TrailBreaker) means he probably won't appear.

    I also prefer his male model because the normal lips suit his color scheme.

    Except the character is female. And has been grunting in her female voice since she first appeared.

    Canon, I now have a female Seeker on my Classics shelf. Now someone get Hasbro to release the Classics mold in Slipstream's colors, please.

    A female one. One that was clearly intentional. Since she's remained female. I'll chalk it up to an animation error.

    Who knows. Maybe she has a similar backstory to Anode.

    I actually don't think they actively decided to change him mid-production. I don't think they put a lot of thought into it, they just had a woman voice the character and changed the model accordingly.

    I feel like the same could be said for a lot of Cyberverse, not much thought went into any of it, they just do whatever without any rhyme or reason. Why 'Nova Storm' instead of the much more popular Skywarp? Why does Starscream throw his wings like boomerangs? Why does boring edgelord blame Bumblebee for her fucked up body despite it being Shockwave who gave it to her? Who cares, kids won't question it.

    God forbid a show uses a different character for a random flunky instead of churning out another bland G1 homage.

    Was heshe ever referred to as "Acid Storm" in the show? If not it's maybe a generic seeker.

    But it's his body and his right to choose!

    Episode 17 shows the "male" Acid Storm again.

    The Dutch dub has two different female voice actors for these two characters. Are both referred to as Acid Storm? Perhaps they really are just two different characters, perhaps they are twins. (probably not: why would the "female" one be missing in episode 17)

    I always thought those black things on Cybertronian faces looked like facial hair.

    There's actually a note about this on Acid Storm's wiki page. Aperently it started as an animation error but the shows creators have decided to cover up the error by saying that switching genders and pronouns is just something Acid Storm likes to do... so we have ourselves a character who refuses to conform to binary gender... but since the voice is always female I'm just going to call her female because switching back and forth between he and she is just too confusing. Most people in real life just stick to gender neutral pronouns which is fine but how the heck would they expect anyone to use correct pronouns when they change their preferences every few days. No one changes their gender this frequently so I don't think anyone will be offended.

    Eh, just say she can change her appearance as easily and as frequently because she's actually a shifter and there you go you have your Amalgamous Prime tie in.

    I think it had to do with their voice actor. Before their speaking role, Acid Storm didn't say anything or make much noise. Then they have a voice actress, so the model gets altered to reflect it. Honestly, I'll go with calling Acid Storm 'she' or 'they/them.' It's not like it's a drastic change anyway, the only other version of Acid Storm with something resembling a defined character is IDW. They just need Ion Storm now and the trio will be complete!
