    Cybertron Con 2012 Coverage - MP-11 Starscream and MP-11S Sunstorm

    I'm SUPER impressed that TakaraTomy's Sunstorm uses different paint/plastic layouts than Starscream to have the show accurate white hands, thighs, biceps, and guns with his shins, shoulders, and forearms in orange/yellow.

    Plus he has his own Coronation gear.

    The Starscream face sculpt looks GREAT!

    starscreams paint job still looks rather dull compared to the initial reveal pics. Still on the fence about purchasing him.

    So Sunstorm is painted with a gradient? The pics show the same effect in both alt and bot mode that his feet are yellowish but upper body is more a sunburnt colour.

    Lets see..... then Acid Storm and what's the other storm that these trio had a 5 seconds of fame?

    No new molds until Optimus and Starscream gets another new complete mold, followed by more repaints! This trend is fuckin killin me man!

    3rd party to the rescue

    Since I have the US MP Starscream with coronation kit, I was never very tempted by MP-10, but both my wife and I want an MP-11.

    You're mistaken, Sunstorm isn't one of those 'Rainmakers' he appeared in the first episode of G1.

    The gray looks a bit lighter, but that may be the lighting.

    I was gonna ask the same thing? Is this lighting or the actual paint app? I'm not a big fan of the gradient thing going on. I rather it be all orange and the flames do look a little strange altho I can live with that.

    Nope, as PoweredConvoy stated, it was just some fully yellowed Seeker. According to Hasbro he was the yellow seeker we see in MTMTE Pt. 1 that is with the first Decepticons that Wheeljack and Bumblebee encountered.

    Good to see them finally release the mold in these colors. I just wonder what sort of premium it would have on it.

    Hmm. Not sure what to say about that sunstorm except that Hasbro should stop including the same accessories with every repaint, makes zero sense on sunstorm.
    What they can do for me is g'head an release mp10 in the US though ....

    Starscream I'm getting. Not sure if I'll keep him: he has to be better than what iGear has done with the seekers and if not...


    As for Sunstorm, I already have the iGear version and I love the iGear version (great improvements on the mold, good colors and a good price). Not sure if Taktomy can release a version good enough to make me interested. Current pictures sure ain't doing it. Maybe if he came with something different than the coronation set (which doesn't fit him).

    We'll have to see...

    Pass on both of these.

    MP-11 is no better than the US release of MP Starscream... The legs look better but I prefer the weathering on the US version.

    MP-11S looks like an iGear item. Now if they'd made him look like that awesome custom that was shown then I'd have bitten their hands off.

    Now bring on the next new mould or, for the love of GOD, Ultra Magnus!!

    Steve.
