    I didn't pick up powerglide even though i have seen him numerous times. But i was at my Walmart last night and i seen Stormcloud. The only thing that bothers me is the 26.oo pricetag. So my question is...has anyone purchased him and really really like him, or is he just so so. I really like his colors but, does he have any quality control setbacks. I'm just pissed cause i bought shockwave and his hand ripped off. Spent 2 hours fixing him.

    Nope don't do it. There will be other places to throw your money away later on.

    Do it. He's a good repaint of a good mold. His only real problems are design rather than production (which poeple WRONGLY call QC issues) faults.

    Yes, and I find it cool that G1 Micromasters are getting a homage from the Voyager Class.

    I love him and paid full price for him. I think he's a great addition to the Con Universe Army.

    I think he's great. Better in black than as PowerGlide

    I dont own the mold, to me it seems weird to see Powerglide as a Ultra class. To me he should have been a Legends or a Deluxe.

    I love Powerglide! At first he seemed kinda 'off' to me..his arms and legs seem much smaller compared to his head, but if you pose him right, it actually makes him feel bulky and powerful. Now I love the mold..and if you like Storm Cloud's colors, I guess you can't go wrong.

    Better than Powerglide, the colors rock. Also best Ultra in this line.

    I bought both and actually prefer the colors on Stormcloud. I don't regret the purchase of either.

    Worth getting. I bought 2 powerglides and a stormcloud...so you shouldn't listen to me...!

    Also some of the yellow is a little obnoxious, you can always do a few touch ups!

    This is true. OP, If you pick him up go check His feedback thread before you transform him. There's a small screw you'll want to loosen just a bit so you don't have to exert too much force when moving it. I wish I could be more descriptive but It's been quite a while since I got him/did the procedure.

    it's well worth it, if you are collecting classics/universe/henkei, because 1 it is a decepticon, and 2 it looks really NICE.

    He's definitely worth it. Don't think he's as good as say...Onslaught, but still a good, solid figure. His altmode is damned secksi in that black and purple too.
