All hail King Starscream and all hail King.... Sunstorm? Our Cybertron Con 2012 Coverage continues with the controversial and much anticipated release of Masterpiece MP-11 Starscream. Much like how MP-10 Optimus Prime outdid his predecessors, this figure comes with a handful of knicks and knacks that give it a certain edge on previous Masterpiece Starscream releases. Not to be outdone, the repaint of MP-11 Starscream will be MP-11S Sunstorm, a character who's quite popular amidst being outside the seeker/conehead sextet. To our surprise, Masterpiece Sunstorm will include his own coronation gear. Enjoy the images below!

Our informant Mach has told us that we'll be seeing toy images of the MP-11 Sunstorm before the eventual end of the convention.

Going to get hate for this, but iGear's is definitely the better looking of the two. The color gives it so much personality while this is a very odd shade of orange...

Too hard to judge, colors could be anywhere on the palette right now since these are placeholder images taken by a camera in a room where there's a ton of light tint, as Starscream's white looks like fuschia.

The coronation kit for Sunstorm is just stoopid. Guess that means all the seekers, assuming they're indeed done, will include the coronation kits and cost the same rip-off price.

It seems like Sunstorms' always getting the I am Starscream's clone treatment......even up to the point of proto types.

On a somewhat not related/related note, the last re-issue of Sunstorm under the E-hobby line, the comic/pamphlet that came with the early/first release had photos that portrayed his fists similar to the TFC#9 Starcream (the one that held a mini Megatron gun.....holes and all)

He is Starscream's clone... :P

Anyway, I was never interested in the Seeker MP mold until now. I thought about getting a MP T-Cracker before, but it was too much. But this Sunstorm is almost a must have for me. The Starscream is a pass, as usual.

Starscream looks good. I'd buy it if I didn't already have MP-03. Sunstorm looks ridiculous with the coronation gear. I hope they do Thundercracker though, since I missed out on the first one.

Sunstorm needs white lower arms , orange biceps, orange upper legs and no flames...

Hell, coloring is all wrong! Even on the guns!!!

@ Rodimus Prime

In some realities that is.

Starscream gets better and better everytime we see him.

Blurrz makes a good point about the colours of Sunstorm being off, but unfortunately perfect lighting isn't going to make those flames look any less pointless or half-arsed.

The coronation set does nothing for me and I'll probable pass on Sunstorm.

The DW 6-issue series where he bitchslaps Omega Supreme and fights to the death with Jetfire. The only reality I count.

Im struggling to think why I would want to buy this when I already have the last Masterpiece Starscream which is virtually identical.

Sunstorm never really interested me. Do I really want a 5th masterpiece seeker? Probably not.

Just noticed the flames on Sunstorm. :SICK:

Nobody has to put the Coronation gear on Sunstorm. I agree, it's really not him, but it's better than leaving it out entirely.

I'm not really liking Sunstorm, though. Why not give him the red chest shown on the PVC figure and in the comics? Unless I'm just not seeing it in their (sdmittingly small) picture.

Starscream is very tempting. I only have green Starscream with the unofficial Coronation gear, so this is actually something that appeals to me.

Never cared about Sunstorm, but Starscream? I'll be picking him up, methinks.
