Fellow Seibertron.com user Arctorro has pointed us in the direction of Photobucket user MASABON1980, and their in-hand images of the Transformers Cloud Hot Rodimus and Shockwave figures, the eHobby and TakaraTomyMall repaints of Generations Springer and Whirl. We've mirrored some of them below, so why not take a look? The rest can be found here!

SARA looms ominously in the background of their packaging.

I decided to drop my preorder for Whirl-wave. I like him, but not for 90 bucks. Hopefully he'll go into clearance like many of the existing Cloud figures.

Not sure on the translucent pink for his weapons (would have preferred chromed silver myself) but the mold works surprisingly well for him. Also that Rodimus is sublime.

And that Whirl versus Megatron pic makes me like the Classics Megatron mold a whole lot more. The Takara paintjob probably helps. If it weren't for the fact I really don't like Megatron as a gun (it's just silly even by "objectformer" standards) I'd try and get him.

Cloud Hot Rod is VERY tempting. I love the shade of maroon they used for him.

I don't like how it clashes with the orange they used though.

I was expecting more of a true red myself, but I don't think the maroon looks half bad.

Isn't the maroon pretty much spot on for his Rodimus Prime coloring?

:D *waves*



I've got Rodimus paid for at RK (along with a few things coming next year #-o) and was a bit concerned about the colours at first, but I think they work well.

i think they made all of shockys weapons pink to emulate the G1 toy. and if you want a classics mold megatron, the one pictured with whirl is the united version. the other black/silver one is henkei, which is a little chromey and has a brighter red.

Really like the Cloud Hot Rod. It's a wonderful mould and I'll be glad to have a Voyager sized Hot Rod. He looks perfect for my IDW shelf to take the role of Rodimus, whilst I still have the Henkei version to represent a more G1 Hot Rod.

Really do not like the Shockwave though. It's just a purple Whirl. When you look at the modifications made to the Springer mould to do Sandstorm you wonder why they couldn't have done a few mods to Whirl's mode to make him a little more Shockwave-esque.

The people who made Sandstorm from Springer and the people who made Shockwave from Whirl are not the same people. Cloud figures are not remolds. They are meant to be straight redecos. What other existing character could they have redecoed Whirl into?

Well there is some remolding going on, albeit very minor (headsculpts like on Starscream and Megatron, Starscream's arms being made to accomodate the MP Seeker cannons etc) but no Sandstorm-tier remolding no. I mean, Sandstorm is basically a whole new figure that has similar engineering to Springer- easily one of the best remolds ever.

Cloud Starscream is basically a straight-up repaint of Double Dealer. The heads are exactly the same. No retooling there. Cloud Brawn is a repaint of a previously developed mold for the Generations GDO assortment that was canceled. Cloud Megatron is a mold from that same assortment of figures. Sabrblade is correct, there is no retooling for the Cloud line.

No remolding whatsoever. Megatron is based on the GDO figure:

And Starscream is based on Gen. Doubledealer:

And the Null-Rays from MP Starscream have 5mm posts, and the Blitzwing mold already had the holes, albeit screw holes:

Was unaware of this. Fair enough I suppose.

Man, I love how good Springer looks as Roddy for a straight repaint, but I can't do it. Springer and Rodimus just need to be different molds for my shelf.
