Cloudburst (Impel Trading Card)

The Air Commandos just didn’t get enough play during their time on the pegs. Joe’s mid-80s heyday of cartoon tie-ins had fizzled into the DIC series, and many of the sub-groups didn’t get a lot of coverage in the Marvel comic. It fell to the Impel trading card set to play up the figures in these teams, and you couldn’t get much better 90s exposure than being in a trading card set, aside from maybe the one-two punch of making it onto a pog.

    I recall that Air Commando gliders appeared very briefly in the Marvel Comics series, but they only mentioned Skymate and Cloudburst.
