Welp, looks like Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus will be repurposed as Cloud Ultra Magnus, for these reasons:

1) In Japan, Ultra Magnus never appeared in Prime in that form, as Beast Hunters was replaced by GO!
2) Cloud mainly consists of figures "skipped" for the main Jspanese lines: GDO Megatron and Brawn, Gen. Doubledealer and Whirl never had a Japanese release until Cloud. That will include Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus.

With that said, who will be his Decepticon counterpart?

I don't like either of these molds, and the purple just makes it look even worse on Shockwave. I wish the Springer mold wouldn't be so damn lanky. I do like the colors for Rodimus, if I do get it, it'll probably be displayed in car mode.

That would be SARA, one could call her the voice of the Creator of the Cloud world. Why on earth it has the body of a little girl, we'll never know but take heart: it's not by the creator of KP.

You know, if they remolded that Whirl mold to improve the cannon mode, I might be interested in a Shockwave/Whirl repaint. Something to make it look like an actual mode and not just something the guys made up while goofing around with the toy.

Oh yeah, I spotted Deadlock, couldn't figure out who the Combaticons were, and would the Air Warriors encompass Skywarp and Thundercracker?

That Rodimus is quite a beauty! The Gen Springer mold is a GREAT mold and Roddy's colors are perfect. I dunno if I want to spend 100$+ for it, but it's the best Cloud figure so far.

As for Shockwave... why? It's just dosent work at all. IT'S A PURPLE WHIRL AND THAT'S IT! Shockwave is usually massive and powerful looking. Here, we either get Whirl cosplaying as Shockwave, or Shockwave got a very bad case of anorexia and is about to die from excessive weight loss.

Also, lol @ Megs & Shocky being kinky together in that last shot!

I never really liked the GDO Megatron remold and when it was released in the Cloud line I didn't like it either. But for some reason (after seeing these pictures) I'm starting to like the mold :-?

This pretty much sums it up for me. Really like the look of Cloud Rodimus. Thought I'd be put off by the helicopter mode, but I think it actually looks really good, and I'm loving the colours. Shockwave just doesn't look like Shockwave to me. I just see Whirl in purple, as you said. I think they should've done more to distance him like with Sandstorm from the Springer mould.

Personally, if I get Shockwhirl(Whirlwave?), he'll be SG Whirl rather than Shockwave. The figure looks really good, even if it fails at being what it's meant to.

I guess I'm the only one who really sees a Shockwave in him, albeit a really slender one (who says brains need brawn anyway?). Let me ask you guys this: if you had to repaint Whirl as an existing character, without any retooling at all, who would you repaint him as?

They will slap paint on ANY mold and call it something it is not. And the funny thing is, people pay huge premiums for them.

So silly.

I like the concept of Rodimus from Springer. I would have preferred a new head and different weapons. This is Springer painted like Rodimus with a flame deco for added measure. I can't justify buying it.

Shockwave from Whirl is ambitious. However it just does not work even in the slightest sense. Just get SDCC Shockwave and be happy.

Ok,this sounds strange but I was digging the bot mode and heli mode of this figure, but that pic has now put me off. I really don't know why but to me it just doesn't suit Roddy. The bizarre thing is that the heli version did suit him. Oh, I don't know, I've confused myself now. Maybe it's because I've had a long, tiring day at work...

The only problem I have with both alt modes is the orange roof, it doesn't match the red or the yellow.

Last we saw of Takara Tomy's Transformers Cloud storyline, we had some teasing allusions to the inclusion of more toys into the exclusive repaint/repurpose line. The Takara Tomy website has of course been updated fairly regularly with new installments of the story itself, though all in Japanese, including new artwork by Nagi Miyako - and another chapter recently went up! Check out a recap of all the images below, featuring Generations toys from Perceptor to Bruticus, and the Beast Wars cast, as Shockwave (a redeco of Whirl) battles Rodimus (a redeco of Springer) and head here for the text!

Bruticus is wielding Shockwave in a gun mode (a la "The Revenge of Bruticus"), but which cannot be achieved with the actual toys.

Shockwave is showcasing his fourth mode: an artillery cannon which is just a reversed Gerwalk mode. Bruticus wields him akin to a scene in the G1 cartoon, except he does so willingly.

So this is like Sixshot's "Wingwolf" mode, Ovelord's combined jet mode, or Black Zarak's "Daikatsu" (sp?) mode, then? Something made up for the fiction by fiddling around with the toy, but is (probably) not in the instructions?

We haven't seen Shockwave's instructions yet, but if that mode's in it, it's truly official. Those are official pics btw.
