I thought MP-11 was a whole new mold?

And Sunstorm really does look majestic with the coronation pieces, befitting his god complex.

If by 'majestic and manly' you mean 'eye-raping and fugly', then I might agree.

Well, I'm glad I didn't have any interest in it anyway, because it would suck trying to get ahold of this.

$165 is way too high a price. $110 would get me interested. I'll wait for a clearance sale.

technically its an old mold. the seeker mold used is the origional prototype for masterpeice screamer that we were shown way way back in the day, before that one designer signed onto it and said screw you guys im making this a real jet.

For that price, not to mention the limited availability, I'd rather go with the iGear version.

I prefer the orange to the yellow anyway.

If it turns out like Unicron there won't be a clearance sale.

Any way, I thought it was brought up that Japan would get a limited production, while other markets would see a different production run for the rest of the world. Has the plan changed?

Is Sunstorm really gonna be yellow and orange? I'm not a fan of the two colors together on him, it looks strange. I do like the flame detail though.

Yeah, I thought that production news was strange. I can confirm that Japan will be releasing these in limited amounts. I vaguely remember 1000. It doesn't make sense that this would be released in unlimited quantities in other markets.

I may end up getting this. It will depend on when the Skywarp,Thundercracker repaints are released and how far down the road MP-Sideswipe is.

Not a comic fan, so I know little to nothing about Sunstorm, which makes him an easy pass. Not crazy about the colors, either.

About the MP-11 mold, does it retain the dual-expression gimmick?

I'm also worried about the feet. They don't look articulated at all. Is this the final version, or are is the toy used for the pics still just a prototype?

Wait.. you realize that the "custom above" IS the actual Takara version right?

I'm sorry, but you are mistaken. The photo above shows a custom by FrenzyRumble that was posted as a placeholder image by YaHobby.



You posted the photo of the vastly inferior two-toned Takara version yourself:

Image

The differences should be pretty immediately obvious, beginning with Takara's version being a straight repaint of MP-11 Starscream....

(When YaHobby posted the picture of the custom I erroneously submitted it as news, making the same mistake you did until Mkall set me straight.)

Ok yea I get that, but in your quoted statement, the above pictured Sunstorm is NOT the frenzyrumble custom. Are we talking about the same pic? The one featuring the cape and the crown right? That is the Takara version. I'm familiar with frenzyrumble, love his work, but looking at your comment, the above pictured Sunstorm is NOT the custom. Am I confused?

You'll notice the lack of cut plastic for the "flames" on the wings and the entirely different paint. The pictured you posted IS the Takara version.

I think there is some confusion.
I would buy a Sunstorm that looked like this one in this photograph (F-R's custom) IF it were Takara's MP-11:

I will not buy this, Takara's actual MP-11S, because it sucks:

I'm not sure how our signals got crossed.

HAHA! Clarification! Yes. That. The Tak version doesn't do anything for me either. And why would we need a Sunstorm with coronation gear?

Because Takara wanted to sell a repaint for the same price but didn't want to create alternate add-ons?

Yes... YaHobby had the placeholder image of its Sunstorm preorder with FR's custom. I linked to that image as YaHobby was greenlit to utilize "official" MP11s stocks. I noticed it and changed it, but not before being quoted with YaHobby's link.

In other exciting news, it was a great day today! I went out for some sunshine, and had a great conversation with a sexy ass stranger - sync'd her contact info and everything including her Skype! Thanks 4G LTE! :DANCE:

This was further complicated by YaHobby changing the image to a different one with the same name, which is why I still saw the custom and Get Right Robot saw MP-11S. Browser caches are funzzz. ;D
