    Ooh nice - the Jetfire mold is one of my favourites of recent years and I like that colour scheme. An easy buy. :)

    What an obscure homage. Would have preferred a Decepticon too. It does look pretty nice though.

    Stormcloud is just the Decepticon repaint of Powerglide, but maybe BW Silverbolt has something to do with the 25th Anniversary?

    Not bad. I've always wanted a darker repaint of Jetfire (since every version of the mold so far has been predominantly white). That might not have been my first choice for color schemes, but it's definitely eye-catching.

    And hey, it joins the ranks of Movie Mudflap, Big Daddy, and the other Walmart deluxes in being a 'roided-up Micromaster. Micromasters are getting all sorts of homage love these days. Wonder if it is because the Hasbro designers have noticed the favorable response among fans to these Micromaster homages, and as such are doing more of them in a more collector-oriented line like Universe.

    I have to confess, though, I've never been a fan of the name Tread Bolt. It doesn't roll off the tongue, and it just sounds nonsensical. I guess "bolt" works for a plane... like "lightning bolt"... but where the heck does "tread" come from? Ah well.

    But yeah, I wonder what that mention of BW Silverbolt refers to? Maybe just making the link between the BW character and the Aerialbot? I'd like to see the rest of that blurb! :)

    No, this is news.

    And that's a pretty snazzy color scheme-- my fav that mold's gotten so far.

    And what is it with them naming jets "Treadbolt"? Am I missing something here?
