    I was thinking about buying Un. Stormcloud,but I'm not sure about the mold. I think it looks good, but is it worth it?

    I think it's a great mold. It's big, it's beefy, he could whip Silverbolt in a dogfight any day.

    I thought it looked passable on the pictures I saw online and on the box. I ended up buying it anyway. I'm really glad I did, it's a really awesome bot in person.

    Personally, I really dig this mold. Even in it's Powerglide colors, I think that it displays well. When you add in the black and purple coloring of Stormcloud, though, it really stands out nicely. I think the mold itself is also a lot of fun to transform and pose.

    I think the mold works alot better as Stormcloud than Powerglide.

    I love the mold. Got Powerglide and Stormcloud. It's a lot more solid than it looks, and the transformation is pretty fun. Especially the "extra" sound effects :)

    Can't convince you myself. the Powerglide mold doesn't do it for me.

    I was kinda waffling on him, but got him anyway. I'm glad I did, he's a good mold, though to be honest, he's not any more a realistic representation of an A-10 than the Cybertron Wing Saber mold is.

    As a note, Powerglide's color scheme might be a homage to another character, Micromaster Hothouse. Check this out:

    Pretty close, actually, which has lead Reprolabels to release the following set:

    So, if you don't like him as Powerglide... maybe he'd work better for you as Hothouse?

    I think for Storm Cloud it's worth it, again not a great mold but good enough in his colors.

    Same here. The alt mode is not bad, but the bot mode proportion is really funky. The head and torso look quite odd and huge, while he got skinny waist, small arms, and tiny hands. Not something I am fond of.

    Powerglide should look more like this:

    Rather than this:

    yup, if u need convincing, then u dont like the mold, and u should just pass on it.. i personally love the mold, so i'd ask u to get one, especially the hasbro powerglide (my fav version of the mold)
