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 have the iGear version. If the Takara version looked like the custom above I would have purchased it too.

The actual Takara version? Not so much.


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....



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?
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
