    I apologize if this is old news, but I couldn't find any evidence. Tonight I found Universe 2.0 Ultra class Stormcould at my local Walmart. Looks decent enough, but I haven't taken him out of the package yet. As usual, nobody believes anything without proof... so here's the photo :) 

    EDIT - Just noticed something weird! Look at the "MM-89" on his engines in the photo.... different font than more military looking "MM-88" on the production photos and box art. I wonder what prompted the number change? ((Upon further research it seems it stands for "Micro Master - 1989, to commemorate the initial Stormcloud toy))

    Why is it I can look at something online... SWEAR I don't want it, and all that goes out the window when you see it on the store shelf? :crazy:

    So are those details on his wings and feet blue now instead of gray/silver, or is it just your picture? I'd love for them to be blue.

    Looks more like a variation of the symbol found on Movie Incinerator.

    Which in turn is based on real USAF markings, replacing the star in the center with a Decepticon logo.

    It's a good thing you picked up the Cascade Gel as well, my wife would have my ass if I went to Wal-Mart and bought a Transformer but forgot the dish detergent.

    Holy damn is that the new Cascade Gel? Review? How's the lemon smell? Jk :p 

    I hope if I'm the first to find something my receipt has all kinds of weird stuff like condoms, 50 lbs of chipped ham, and nair.

    Rock on. The black is wicked. Perhaps I'll display him with nemesis prime as a kind of guard.

    I want two of this repaint now. Surprised its showing up early. But that means treadbolt the one off new voyager. Will either show up in a revision wave soon or with inferno and the vector prime/ overload repaints.

    I think the mold looks great, but I still can't figure out how Hasbro thought it was a good idea to make Powerglide giant and give him two figures on the mold, but reduce Galvatron to tiny proportions.
