    That's the thing that baffled me; here was a wholly unique, ORIGINAL character - and it didn't catch on! I was for at least one original character per year. Hell, I was hoping this inspired other 3rd party companies would do an original character themselves.

    Didn't catch on? Maybe it didn't sell that well, but isn't it ridiculously marked up on ebay right now? Also, pretty much everyone that got it only had good things to say about it.
    If you want to blame anyone, blame FP for not making more original figures/characters or rereleasing Steelcore for those who missed it at first. I'm pretty sure original characters of bots are always going to have a hard time since they are more niche given people's budgets and their needs for characters they do know and don't already have figures of.

    The build-a-bot components are a clever bit of marketing. If I had some bits I'd feel compelled to buy the whole set.

    Have they announced what the rest of Sunstorm will be in?

    The Coneheads are exclusively being sold as a set yes, Sunstorm torso most likely to be in a clamshell of its own underneath theirs along with the three stands.

    Speaking of IF here's all their stuff I have so far.

    And included my adorable little bad ass diaclone mechs cause why not. Since IF are already so skilled in this scale gosh I hope they also end up making some Diaclone compatible stuff some day. I would looooove to have more mini mechs especially.

    Damn they all look so cool together. Makes me want to get more figures with this colour scheme and create a dark army.
