I have the Japanese version, but I'm happy to pick this guy up.

Looking forward to the inevitable shelf-warming!

No MP for Quebec, shitty TrU, scalpers, yadda, yadda.

Fawk it, I already ordered MP-11 and if I ever want Sunstorm, I'll just get the bloody Takara one so I wont have to deal with the usual bull that always come with the Hasbro releases.

I have to ask the obvious question.....how is this website offering pre-orders.....for a figure that's an exclusive at a brick-and-mortar retailer? I'm genuinely wondering.

I presume they'll get their own stock from TRU, somehow.

If they do....doesn't that kind of defeat the point of making Sunstorm an exclusive? It's almost like they're buying up extra stock and selling him at a higher price, for extra profit. People do this on eBay and they're called scalpers.

I admit, I'm not the most knowledgeable about this practice, but it just doesn't sit right with me.

Wow, that's, uh, jeez. Guess I need to stop procrastinating on MP-11S before it disappears.

If Sunstorm comes to the UK then I will buy.

I would like to see a small change to the mold though, the flaps on the rear wheels on the jet should hinge the other way so the wheels are on the outside and not hidden away behind those flaps. Would make. A big difference to the look off the alt mode.

Well, the more hate this sucker gets, the better chance I have at getting him.

His colors aren't perfect, but it's enough for me to recognize that it's Sunstorm. If I ever get the money, I'll definitely try and pick him up.

Aside from the shoulders, it's doesn't even look like any existing Sunstorm deco out there, let alone the BotCon one.

And it may just be the quality of the image, but his yellow/gold/orange looks more like peach! #-o

Upon second viewing, the closest Sunstorm deco this resembles is probably either Animated Sunstorm or ROTF The Game G1 Sunstorm. Except with both decos heavily messed up.

Score another boomeranged home run for new design team. >:oP

Thanks to the Toy Dojo Facebook page, we finally see our first glimpse at Toys "R" Us's impending Masterpiece exclusive, Sunstorm! Based on comparisons by Seibertron.com user Sabrblade, it appears that Sunstorm's deco is an amalgam of his Animated self and how he appeared in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen game. Take a peek at what's to come!

Will this be a purchase for you? Will it not? Drop on by at the Energon Pub to discuss this new bit of Masterpiece news.

Well surprisingly the Takara version looks better IMO. I think it's the plastic color, if he was shifted to a creamsicle orange color he would look way better. This is in no way a "Masterpiece". Hope they do better with Skywarp

I'm not typically too hard on TFs, but that paint job is absolutely terrible. It's cheap and pathetic. I was looking forward to this. Not anymore.

I didn't mind paying $75 for Thundercracker and Acid Storm. If this is an accurate picture, I will pass this up. Sad. Just sad. :-(

I'm surprised by the negative reactions... but maybe I shouldn't be, lol. I don't even like Sunstorm and I don't think it looks that bad. I like it a lot more than Acid Storm.
