    No, no, no! That's lime with purple. He said green and purple, like this:

    Anyone who isn't blind can see the difference. (Why has everything gone dark all of a sudden? ;) )

    Silverbolt would have made a better homage to stormcloud than powerglide. Still, I'm passing on this one anyways.

    Thank you, tamo, for posting a image and text-based review. I was more than happy to read over it and gain insight from the front page, as opposed to the video toy reviews fped that bump half of the other news bits down the page significantly. :thumb  :thumb

    That's an interesting homage. I would have thought however, given the original Micromaster Stormcloud's alt mode as a sort of triangular jet type aircraft, that Silverbolt might have been a better repaint choice. Still, it's an impressively obscure character to resurrect, so kudos to whoever was doing the research.

    Pics of the original from tfu.info Storm Cloud (1989) - Decepticon Espionage - www.tfu.info

    I don't know if I'll buy him or not... I don't usually buy $25 figures at all, and having broken that rule and already bought Powerglide, I'm not sure a repaint tempts me. But we'll see.

    yes i also think silverbolt would have been a better repaint.I really like the colors on the powerglide mold though. I already have powerglide and im a big fan of the mold i might just pick this up when it is released.Thanks tamo for the pics and review

    Maybe a trademark/naming rights issue?

    Tailwind would have made more sense.

    Oh yeah,

    also swapped the missile with powerglide to give him a all black gun and powerglide an all cream/white one.

    i've received him today, and all i must say is HE IS FAR BETTER IN PERSON! lol!

    also, i put the gun, on the bottom of the hand for this guy, *under* and flipped around, as a Gatling gun, and i have also, switched the black/gray missile as well, looks much better that way.

    together with starscream, and ramjet, he looks great, almost like a skywarp substitute.

    on another note it DOES look WAY better then powerglide. *though i still like powerglide* it just looks so evil lol as a con :)

    I passed on this mold as Powerglide, but I'll be adding this big guy to my Con collection.
