You are aware that that thing isn't a person, right? It's an A.I. entity called SARA.


Besides, how many of these have we had so far? Only Kiss Players and 15 Go! Go! Technically we could count T-AI from RiD too, which was before Kiss Players. ;)

The primary location of the line's fiction is a dimension called "Cloud World".

As for why, I dunno. Japan sometimes uses words that sound weird to us but might be fine for them.

Possibly because the characters are from an intangible dimension? Or the toys are simply out of reach for most. :lol:

In-Hand Images - Takara Transformers Cloud TFC-AC01 Optimus Prime, AC02 Megatron

Postby Va'al » Mon May 26, 2014 5:43 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We haven't heard much about the Takara Transformers Cloud line in a while, but thanks to Facebook page Planet Iacon we get a look at some in-hand images to TFC-AC01, Optimus Prime, and 02, Megatron, respectively based on the Classics/Henkei Voyager and the ROTF Bludgeon mold. In addition, some more Megatron images courtesy of MASABON1980, too, and some images from the included comic featuring the Generations Whirl styled Shockwave character, too - check them all out below!

It's certainly more show-accurate than and not as cluttered in color as the original Classics version.

In other words, dull. Sorry, but between the AOE 2-pack release being toy accurate and this cloud release being show accurate in their colors those 2 come across as the LEAST exciting releases of this mold thus far. True, each one has one point of major interest between lots of chrome on one and a G2 soundbox reference on the other, but on the whole they're very straitforward and meh. Neither of these will replace Henkei Convoy IME.

It's very plausible actually, as all Cloud releases have been Voyagers so far, and molds and retools initially skipped by TakaraTomy (excluding Prime and Rodimus should he be next of course).
However, this is all rumor and speculation at this point, even until the 4th and final releases.

Wave 4 of Transformers Cloud - TFC-D04 Hellwarp and TFC-A04 Roadbuster

Postby Sabrblade » Fri Aug 22, 2014 8:54 pm

Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
https://twitter.com/Hursticon/status/503002165124673537/photo/1

TFC-D04 is Hellwarp, a redeco of Generations Sky-Byte in Skywarp colors. The name "Hellwarp" is likely a homage to the Beast Wars II iteration of Starscream who upgraded into a robotic shark form called "Hellscream", with this figure likewise replacing the first part of the Seeker name with "Hell" while retaining the name's second part, giving us "Hellwarp".

TFC-A04 is Roadbuster, a redeco of Generations Roadbuster in the colors of Energon Ironhide, who was named "Roadbuster" in Transformers: Super Link, the Japanese version of Energon.

Transformers Cloud TFC-D04 Hellwarp and TFC-A04 Roadbuster Unveiled

Postby LOST Cybertronian » Fri Aug 22, 2014 10:51 pm

Motto: "Keep calm and form Voltron"
Weapon: Double-Barreled, Armor-Piercing Particle Beam Cann...
Thanks to Dengeki Hobby, we get a look at the next two figures in the Transformers Cloud line. Using the Generations Sky-Byte and Roadbuster molds, we get TFC-D04 Hellwarp and TFC-A04 Roadbuster. These were on display at the Chara Hobby 2014 show.

Thanks to Seibertron member Sabrblade we learn that Hellwarp is a Skywarpish homage to Beast Wars II Hellscream, an upgraded cybernetic shark form of Starscream. Roadbuster is a homage to Energon Ironhide who was called Roadbuster in the Japanese version of Energon, Transformers Super Link.

Check out our galleries of Energon Ironhide and Beast Wars II Hellscream to see how the homages compare.

I was just thinking the other day that Sky-Byte would make a decent Hellscream and now here it is!

And my God! I thought Brawn was a lame homage to a D-list character among great repaints of A-list characters like Optimus, Rodimus, Megatron, Starscream, and Shockwave. Energon Ironhide? One of the most reviled toys and characters in Transformers history.

I have a feeling that as more time passes we will be getting more and obscure character references in toy form. Who seriously has some sort of appreciation for Energon Ironhide and his wide array of facial expressions?
Desepticon? What's up with the people who make these labels?

No new tooling on Roadbuster.

Also the article left out that Hellwarp is a Skywarp homage more than it is a Hellscream homage.
