    The seeker in MTMTE is the one that Sunstorm is based on. It isn't an animation error because it was just a generic seeker who provided the look for a new character in the comics.

    When the original cartoon aired, the Decepticon line up was sorely lacking. To compensate for this, the animators added an entire army of recolored Starscreams to pad out the Decepticon ranks. One such recolored Starscream was that yellow colored one seen in 'More than Meets the Eye'. That's all the yellow Starscream was, a recolored Decepticon generic.

    In 2003, Japanese online toyseller e-Hobby released an orange colored Starscream figure named 'Sunstorm'. To tie the new figure to the original story, e-Hobby claimed that their 'Sunstorm' was none other than the yellow generic seen in "More than Meets the Eye". also, the bio provided, written by Transformers Japanese lore writer Hirofumi Ichikawa wrote in his bio that he was powered by nuclear fission, and believed himself to be a supernatural being.

    A few months after the toy's release, Dreamwave Comics took the Sunstorm character, his bio, and ran wild with it. Sunstorm was conceived in those comics as a clone of Starscream as an irridated, nuclear powred being who fanatically believed himself to be the divine embodiment of Primus's will. and he was so over the top that the fans simply loved him.

    And that, is a quick summary of the origins of Sunstorm.

    Well, I love my G1 Sunstorm figures. :) 
    Wish E-Hobby would do a Masterpiece version.

    No. They purposely showed a ton of different colored Seekers in MTMTE.

    Dude, you need to just start one thread and post all your questions in there. This is seriously, like, the tenth of these threads you've posted in the last three weeks.
