    The other part of GenZhao's package: Animated Sunstorm:

    Now, before we get started, I have to say I was worried at first, since the first few times I transformed him his arms, legs and head kept popping off all over the place. I wanted to chuck him in the trash as a piece of poor QC'd garbage. But he was incredibly cold from sitting in a delivery van all night, and once he warmed up to room temperature, I've had no problems with him, aside from the usual random automorph jamming associated with this mold. ANYWAY, that aside:

    [​IMG]

    He's the creamcicle version of the original, done up in the orange and white with reddish-orange highlights. I'm a sucker for orange, so of course I loves him! Definitely distinguishable from the original:

    [​IMG]

    Transformation is the same as Starscream's, and he's got the same face, so robot mode is just another colorshifted SS, per the usual:

    And of course, he retains the shark missiles:

    Overall, I like him quite a bit. Now if only we'd get a Thundercracker from the voyager mold I'll be happy (and pick up a Skywarp! Hear that, Hasbro?!). His bio on the box from recent pics seems to be more of the Dreamwave version of the character, but we all know he's just a big old brown noser.

    And let me tell you, taking that picture showed me just how great Starscream's molded smirk really is:

    :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol 

    And of course, the SUPER MACRO! headshot:

    Anyway, video review is available, as always, now also viewable in HD!

    Well, sometimes, when a clone transformer loves his parent transformer very much...

    You know what? Nevermind.

    And Peaugh, I thought of creamcicle too!

    A lot of that glow is due to the lighting. He's a slightly deeper orange than the pictures suggest, the video color matches a lot closer to the actual figure.

    It's actually only iffy when you get way up close like that. From a normal perspective it looks fine.

    I wish they would have given hime white hands like in the show. In the show, it seemed like he was waring white gloves that went along his forearm, now his hands are missing that certain "hold your hands together and suck up" feeling about him.

    i like him but i feel like its too much maroon for me but thats just my opinion. and peaugh is rite there should be a classics/universe sunstorm. they shold have done him before acid storm just to have all the seekers done first and then they should have done the rain makers.

    This is very true. I've done a lot of shoots, and I don't notice until I see a high res closeup, that stuff you cant see if you dont know it usually.
