Cloudburst was the second Autobot Pretender to be space-based, the other being Landmine. His vehicle mode looked pretty much like any other minimalist Pretender jet, but the lack of existing "star cruiser" standards meant that they could be a little more flexible without making their toy buyers ask, "What the heck is this supposed to be?"
In the Japanese "Transformers: Masterforce" cartoon, Cloudburst was renamed Phoenix.
