Transformers Cloud Starscream Toy Image

By way of the latest edition of Japanese hobby magazine Figure King, check out this image of the Transformers Cloud Starscream toy. Revealed to us earlier today, Transformers Cloud Starscream is a redeco of the Generations Doubledealer toy, which is a retooled Voyager Blitzwing.

Transformers Cloud Starscream sports a typically Starscream deco with blue forearms, red on either side of his cockpit chest and red stripes on the wings. The jet mode is a decent albeit less sleek than usual interpretation of the usual Starscream jet mode, and tank mode looks pretty fitting.

Cloud Starscream comes with two new accessories, a pair of Nul-Rays. They are in fact the same accessories from Masterpiece MP-3 Starscream, and they peg into the backs of the shoulders in robot mode, the underside of the wings for jet mode and the sides of the tank in tank mode.

For reference we've also uploaded with this story the picture of Brawn from the cross sell of the GDO Protectobot Hot Spot box. GDO Brawn is a retooled version of First Edition Transformers Prime Bulkhead, with a new head.

Oh hell yeah! Brawn-head lives!

And...Starscream...made from...Blitzwing...

That is...odd.

EDIT - Starscream made from Blitzwing with the Doubledealer head by the look of it.
MasterZero
...Starscream the triple changer?!

Brawn the Bulkhead mold?!

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!
SAF7
Guess that Brawn was gonna come out sooner or later .


Starscream from Blitzwing though? That's an... interesting idea, I guess.
Heat Blast
I understand where they're coming from with Brawn... But Starscream?! I... I don't even know what to say.
BlackHawkOmega
Ah! Crap, I was JUST about to post it!

But it looks like that GDO Brawn is finally seeing the light of day.

General Tekno
Holy hell; the Doubledealer retool of Blitzwing into Starscream?

That's DAMN inspired, Japan. DAMN inspired.
MechaV
I'm glad we're finally getting this ridiculous thing released in some capacity.
Star Saber
Wow, Starscream from the Blitzwing mold? Somehow I see Takara milking more Seekers out of that!

Looks like we might see that Rodimus from the Springer mold with how they've gone with Starscream.

Yes, quite the move... I wonder how they'll get the null rays incorporated in.

i still can't see that thing without laughing. it just gets funnier the longer you look, lol.
NemiMonkey
Kind of an odd pairing, really expected it to be Rodimus. That Starscream sure is out of left field.

Never liked that remold, but glad for those that wanted the Brawn from FE Bulkhead.

Going off the art I'd say they're swapping out his Blitzwing gun for a null-ray.
Thundershot
Brawn is mine.

He was gonna be my Prime Brawn but then got canceled...

Starscream... is interesting. The Doubledealer head is a good idea.

I still want Rodimus..
NemiMonkey
Hmmm Soundwave vs. Rodimus wave 3?

Only if Soundwave is some balls-to-the-wall remold of something else and not just a repaint of the Fall of Cybertron Voyager.

Like...like...Soundwave out of Rhinox!

I demand actual images before I allow myself to get excited.
Novaburnhilde
Wow, so the GDO Brawn is actually being released, neat.

Also, Starscream the Triple-changer....

Interesting concept!

Hot #@$%. I am loving this cloud series. I like the idea of redoing G1 in something other than the boring usual. It looks like every release is going to be a set of voyagers, and that the characters might not follow the promotional poster as Brawn was not a part of it. These sets are awesome, and I still want to see that Rodimus!
shadowfall1976
Seekers from Blitzwing....to say the least, that will be very interesting.
Omega Supreme-1
What if Cloud Starscream keeps the face changing gimmick and BAM!
Second face is Cloud Megatron, and this justifies the tank mode.
This would also be a twisted homage to those never released G1 figures, that had Skywarp turn into Megatron.
Lumpy
Go home Japan, you're drunk.
Anguirus
WHAT

Geez, I'm not sure I need a Voyager Starscream that bad. Especially since there's the Galaxy Force one anyway. It's sure...creative though.

The shoulder problem is still preventing me from doubling up on this mold. It's maddening. And I'm glad Brawn is getting released for those of you who want it buuuuut...would most prefer a Deluxe myself, and would still prefer the expected Legends figure to this.
Valkysas
bleh to both.
FormTranser
You know, kinda makes me hope for that Rodimus from Springer! Starscream looks great!! Of course I don't know the cost but I'm pretty sure that would deter me completely, the only one would be the Rodimus for me.... and that still is somewhat dependent on the price as maybe I could buy 3 Springers and do the rest myself....
Dudicus
Brawn lives!

But he'll end up being like $80. This really makes me question the TFCC/E-Hobby partnership. Why bother teaming up if they're not gonna make the toys any cheaper?
SPLIT LIP
Japan's getting really creative with these moulds.
RodimusZero
Man, pretty bummed about Roddy. Ah well... With this current trajectory, who wants to bet we'll see a Headstrong out of the Rhinox mold haha
megatroptimus
Bye bye Blitzwing, hello Starscream!
SegaGenesis
Nice to see Brawn is coming out. Starscream from blitz is weird. I can't say I'm too interested in either, though. I guess I will keep waiting for the Hot rod springer mold...
Timothy.R
it's a shame hasbro never does this type of stuff.

i'd kill for the hot rod from the springer mold.. and since i love starscream, i'd probably pick that up as well.

they could've made them TRU exclusives or something. i'd really prefer those over YOTH starscream, YOTH prime, platinum magnus, or platinum bruticus..

hell.. hasbro is having a difficult enough time getting the rhinox wave of voyagers on shelves.

i'm glad i preordered the takara version.. i wonder if the rhinox wave is going to get lost in the shuffle like the whole bunch of others that have been in the last few years.
Ceric Neesh
If these are cheaper than the first ones, I'll consider picking 'em both up. Brawn's fairly likely, at least, and Starscream's the right kind of weird for me.
primetime77
ugh....i'm happy somebody likes these. not for me....at all.
Sciencefriction
I think I'll wait for the Generations versions. I prefer Brawn smaller he is in IDW, so the leaked Legends Classic version will be perfect. I'm not the biggest fan of the Double Dealer head, it's okay for DD, but I don't know like it for Starscream. The idea is interesting though. As for Rodimus, I'd much prefer a new IDW style sculpt and not just a repaint of someone else. I can see how it would work OK but it's not Rodimus to me. It's Springer. Maybe Takara is holding off doing Rodimus for some reason. Anyway.. none of these interest me so far, and they're too expensive to sway me. I like the concepts, just no the execution I guess.

Hell, Hasbro made the Doubledealer mould.

And there was Universe 1.0...which everyone hated. Armada Thrust repainted into Sunstorm, wat? Though I do give the line props for giving us the first US Dai Atlas fig ever(the MW Starscream repaint).
SG Roadbuster
I love this. the Blitzscream in the kinda left field shit that gets me fired up. and i'm so happy to see a cancelled toy finally get released. gives me hope that some others (Animated Marauder Megatron) may actually happen.

Would have also loved to see Blitzwing turned into Reverse Convoy
Feralstorm
So "Cloud" is pretty much Takara's take on "GDO/Asia assortment", sorta kinda.
Stepper
To me,Starscream using Blitzwing mold is really lame.
Grimlock_13
LOL no thanks.

Actually, there are holes on the back of the mold's shoulders. So, maybe the null-rays will peg into those. Who knows?

It may be (old) MP seeker's null-ray.

EDITED: I'd try to imitate the artwork.

Glad you posted the pic. I had somehow missed hearing about this before. I would normally be excited about getting a classic minibot character in a true scale-appropriate size class, but that's a pretty terrible mold. Less "brawny" and more "flabby" -- The regular Bulkhead voyager release would have worked better.
Ribieconvoy
...I actually am really digging that Starscream. This line is pleasantly surprising.

SOUNDWAVE VS. RODIMUS
AND SOUNDWAVE IS A REDECO OF... Powerdive? maybe Hot Spot?

i'd rather see Soundwave as a redeco of rotf Mindwipe.
Stepper
Nice to see Brawn is coming out but not in the Bulkhead mold,maybe other mold.
[Wing_Saber-X]
I prefer the double-dealer color scheme, and since this cloud Ss is just a straight-up repaint, then I'll most likely pass on it... :/

also Classics toys new headsculpt on TF: Prime toy-line bodies = weird proportions and off-putting for me somehow. so uhh, yeah... meh..
