R-Buff

Cloudstrike is the name of a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to Skywarp created by Play With This Too. He is a member of the Striker Fleet.

Lost Protectors

Cloudstrike is a fictional character created by Play With This Too as part of their Lost Protectors series. Cloudstrike is part of the Striker Fleet under the command of Flarestrike. As the Harbinger of the Twilight Shroud Cloudstrike can become unseen.

He wears an Aegis armor which is capable of interplanetary flight thanks to its Cosmoglider wings, which can also be changed into Cosmoshield that can deflect almost any attack. His Battle Shroud mask protects his hearing and vision from overload by enemy attack. He wears a Babel Bracer which translates all languages and Tachyon Telegraph which can send and receive transmissions. His weapons include a Strike Scepter capable of attacking with incredible speed and Megaton Mace which delivers massive impacts.

He has a Tech Drone Squire named R-Buff who turns into a jet.

Development

Cloudstike's colors are an homage to Transformers Skywarp and Masters of the Universe Faker. His armor design is influenced by the shell of Pretender Starscream. The name R-Buff was suggested by Mathew Robert Ignash.

Faststrike with R-Buke and Cloudstrike with R-Buff were among the stretch goals for the unsuccessful Lost Protectors Kickstarter campaign launched in February 2105. They were to be unlocked if the campaign raised at least $310,000. The head sculpts of Cloudstrike and Faststrike were offered to supporters who pledged enough money to the campaign.[1]

In June 2015 Play With This Too released renders of the Strike Scepter on their Facebook page.

In July 2015 Play With This Too announced the design for the Tech Drones would be more like Microns.

In August 2015 Play With This Too released images of prototype parts for Jetstrike. They also released the first color renders of Cloudstrike on their Facebook page.

Cloudstrike was one of the ten initial figures available as a reward for the unsuccessful Boneyard & Jetstrike Action Figures Kickstarter campaign, which began in September 2015.[2]

The Strike Scepter and Megaton Mace were named by Mathew Robert Ignash.

A 35mm figure and two Titan Master faces of Jetstrike were placed for sale on the Prize Inside Shapeways store in March 2017.
