Amazon_co_jp： トランスフォーマー マスターピース MP11S サンストーム (日本国内Amazon_co_jp限定販売品) ホビー[
nice to see that and it looks better then the igear version though
Amazon exclusive??? So will the boxart be exclusive type or just normal MP boxart?
I like Igear's Sunstorm better.
To each his own,some will prefer the official product
Absolutely. I'm glad Takara went with the muted yellow & white scheme as opposed to the crazy neon creamsicle orange, red & light gray scheme that iGear did.
I just wish I cared about Sunstorm as a character so that I'd want this... but I don't, so I don't
Kind of sucks for people who have to import him but if any seeker makes a good exclusive, it would be Sunstorm. I wish they would have left the coronation gear out to keep the price down, especially since anyone other than Starscream wearing it is dumb.
Amazon Japan doesn't ship toys overseas, right? So 13,500 yen is approximately $159 plus the third party buyers fee plus shipping plus the importers mark up. $250 for an igear killer? Hardly.
Yikes... for that price, I'd rather buy MP-08x. In a line with so few Decepticons, 4 seekers just seem like overkill.
With the coronation gear,it will attract more collector to get this Sunstorm
Agreed. For such a frivolous purchase, Sunstorm only kinda makes sense at its retail price. Anything more than that just kills it.
The listing says "Amazon jp exclusive in Japan" This has been the case with past few e-Hobby exclusives....they are exclusives to those shops domestically.
I think it's likely that Sunstorm'll be available from Asia based vendors such as RobotKingdom.
Holy shit, after looking at those Amazon pics again, I just noticed that Takara is using two different shades of yellow on this figure. The back half of the jet starting at the back of the wings suddenly changes to a much brighter yellow - which is far more visible in the bot mode shots where you compare his legs to the upper body color. I just thought it was my monitor for a second, but they're clearly trying to do a color fading trick there.
Just an FYI for anyone who might not have noticed it. I'm diggin this thing a lot less now.
I know I do.
The colors on this guy are really sharp too, and amazingly cartoon accurate. I wouldn't think with the way Starscream's colors are that they'd be able to breakdown the colors like this to work with the color layout for Sunstorm's cartoon model, but they did.
Hopefully they have things planned out like this too so that Skywarp can have purple shoulders and cannons without making other parts that shouldn't be purple purple.
face is just wierd!! ??
I really don't like that color fading... he way it was done look really blah.
my sister got me the Igear sunstorm for xmas this year, I'm more than happy with it! this guy does look cool, wish they hadn't done the two tone yellow that way not really sure about that decision. but overall a nice figure, for will to pay that price for a seeker.
I think this guys looks freaking awesome, that said I can't justify that price for a mainline figure let alone an ancillary character.
The orange here looks less creamsicle than the "unofficial" one. Much better.
Color fading? Yellow?
Well...I think I may be holding on to my cash, then.
Those pics are, admittedly, shit.
I fully imagine people will change their minds once they see a fan gallery with the fig.
