    As far as most black repaints go, he looks pretty good, but the more I see this mold, the more I don't like it. Specifically the bot-mode, as I really don't have any problems with the alt-mode (I love A-10's). Here's hoping we also get a Legends class Powerglide figure to go with the other minibots getting Legends.

    Looks great as Stormcloud!! I wasn't so keen on it as Powerglide, just didn't seem right to me. But I gotta admit, now I'm a little tempted! Still not in love with the bot mode, though!!

    Those colors work SO well on this mold. It's almost like another Classics Skywarp(except it's not, so don't get any ideas Hasbro!). He looks great out of package and in package. The box art looks just as good in these colors. I may just leave him in package.

    He could have ended up very different. According to the rep from Hasbro I talked to at Botcon, he was supposed to be Tailwind (same type of plane, similar head), but they couldn't get the name, so they went with his partner's name and colors.

    Doesn't look nearly enough like Stormcloud, but DAMN I still want it.

    Ah, yes. That would've been a cool color scheme too. Why couldn't they just have stuck "Decepticon" on the front of Tailwind, and used Decepticon Tailwind?

    Nice colors, but, I'm not a huge fan of the mold. This certainly looks great in alt mode, though.

    Well if I could find him I could comment on the new color scheme. I like the original paint job myself.

    It looks cool but I find it odd they went with these colors, seeing as the upcomming animated leader class Shadow Blade Megatron is so close to it in color scheme.. They could almost be brothers lol..

    I have to admit, I like these colors, but now I'm torn between the first release and this one. I'll only get one of them so it going to take some additional thought (and pics of the bot mode) before I pull the trigger.

    EDIT: The MM-89 is a nice touch. Nice to know they're keeping with the same theme for the ID markings.

    Well, considering black and purple color schemes are typical for Decepticons...maybe they have the same tailor. :)

    For Trademark issues, they can't do that, or else they would have done that already with Tankor, for example. The whole reason they put Autobot or Decepticon in front of a name, is because that name is a common word (Brawl, Ratchet, and Jazz for examples).
