After 30 Years Yellow and Blue Rainmakers Have Names!
Thanks to the Facebook Ask Vector Prime page we know have names for the previously unnamed Yellow and Blue Rainmakers. In the original Generation 1 episode “Divide and Conquer” the Autobots return to Cybertron and are attacked by 3 Rainmakers. In 2008 one would be named Acidstorm and released as a redeco of the Classics Starscream mold. Last year Loyal Subjects made a 3 pack containing the trio and only referred to his two compatriots as Yellow Rainmaker and Blue Rainmaker. Vector Prime has since revealed their names to be Nova Storm (the Yellow Rainmaker) and Ion Storm (the Blue Rainmaker). It’s this reporter’s personal opinion that a 3 pack of Nova Storm, Ion Storm, and Red Wing (who first appeared in the BotCon 2013 comic and again in the BotCon 2015 comic) would make a great future Official Transformers Collectors’ Club or BotCon exclusive (wink wink nudge nudge).
