    Wow, Stormcloud los a lot of paint apps from his stock photo.

    Treadbolt looks good. Kinda miss the black shoulders, though.

    Hmm, I'm quite impressed by how Stormcloud's head isn't screaming "I'M POWERGLIDE!!!" But I'm really put off by the grey plastic on both Stormcloud and Treadbolt.

    These both look fantastic IMO.
    No Powerglide for me :D 

    EDIT: I only just noticed the 'con symbols on Stormcloud's wings. Now those are win!

    Stormcloud looks great. I'll buy him over Powerglide.

    Treadbolt.... Not so much.

    Stormloud is actually looking better the more I see him, though the yellow still looks horrible on him, imo. Tread Bolt, while he has an even worse deco than Stormcloud, I'll still get, but to repaint. Hopefully his clear plastic parts won't be too hard to change the color of. In some pics it's looked like a nice red color, but in these and the first pics we got of him, they look more like a rootbeer flavored candy color. Artwork looks nice, too. Not perfect, but nice. Almost makes me want to keep the packaging, lol.

    Wow. I REALLY like Storm Cloud. IMO it's a better deco than Powerglide's.

    Though Powerglide is my priority one, if Ultras go on sale I'd snatch up Storm Cloud easily.

    There, now THAT'S how I remember Storm Cloud from Botcon, not with blue, but with purple. Looks better that way, IMO.

    MM89. Cool. I take it that stands for Micromaster and his original release year?

    ugh i wish we never saw stock photos because they looks so great photoshopped and all, then when we see the real deal i am always disappointed. oh well. i like that they are taking more bot mods and making repaints into the CONS and some some vice versa since i dont collect BOTS, make it nice to enjoy the mold that once was a BOT and now a CON. i will still get stormcloud, hes not that bad to me.

    I'll get stormcloud but wont put him on the universe shelf. I hate having faction swap repaints in the same line. He will probably go with the movie cons as he is a better representation of the plane from the movie then cybertron wing saber's repaint

    God help me, Stormcloud has a BEAK.

    As for Treadbolt, I reiterate my previous statement: Are HasTak letting Japanese Voice Actresses design their toys' color schemes again??

    Buying both. Actually I'll be buying every Classics mold and skipping any non-Classics molds.

    Do want both of these. Storm Cloud's color scheme looks great on that mold and he was one of my earliest figures as a Micromaster. Treadbolt is still looking great, nice to see some micromaster love.

    Stormcloud looks more "Decepticon-ish" than lots of Decepticon molds around.
