    i got this sunstorm in and i want to know if anyone knows if he is real or a reissue. the reason i ask is because his face is painted silver and his eye's are painted red. the ones i have seen have an all black face and eyes, and the eyes are stickers on the sheet are still on the sheet. someone please help me out on this, as i think i might have been ripped off.

    It could be that someone just customized it a bit. I think the only KO Sunstorm was a smaller version.

    Definitely looks like someone just wanted to paint the face. Otherwise, it looks perfectly legit. Unmc is correct that the only known Sunstorm fakes are miniatures. And the rerelease Sunstorm won't be out for a while.

    BTW, don't let the eBay idiots confuse you. There is a serious difference between a reissue and a bootleg or knockoff.

    no reissue of Sunstorm has been released yet so this must just have some added paint details from a previous owner.
