    Since Tak/tomy and Hasbro both love repaints, I was wondering if anyone thought there would be any chance of getting a MP of Sunstorm.

    I would guess slim to none.

    Sunstorm is not a classic character as I see the MP line is. In fact he is a color error made into a character.

    If more seekers come is doubtfull since they need to remodel heads and wings for Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet. But those 3 goes before Sunstorm.

    E-hobby dont repaint MPs (yet) but if they would repaint it the price would be probbaly over 200.

    I think your best bet is to get a customizer to repaint it for you.

    Despite my not yet owning the mold (though I really really want the US release of Screamer), I'm plenty sick of MP Seekers.

    New molds plx.

    Grimmy is a step in the right direction though :D

    Your only hope is that E-hobbie repaitns it. I think it's impossible for him to get a mass release.

    I remember waaaayy back when MP/20th Ann. Prime came out, there were lots of people saying there was no chance in hell that Takara would release a gun Megatron as a Masterpiece.


    So anything's possible.

    Like others have said, the only chance of getting one is through e-hobby. MP line should just be for the truely classic characters(we still need Soundwave, Shockwave, Rodimus, Bumblebee) once they get them done then they can look at some of the others. This is just my opinion though.

    I think we'll get one eventually. Its an easy repaint that will sell so why not you know. Now it may be several years down the line, but all the people saying with such certainity "your only chance is ehobby" and "MP only represents the most classic of characters," well I got a good laugh lets leave it at that.

    They should at least attempt to remold Starscream into Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet (or make a new mold for all coneheads).

    A little off-topic, but my prediction is that if they do more MPs, Soundwave is up next, followed by Ironhide or Bumblebee. Conehead Seekers mixed in there isn't unexpected.

    I bet we will get it after Grimlock. Then we will have Acid Storm and all the other rain makers.

    At least you gave me some hope, compared to the rest of the responses :lol . Sunstorm is my favorite seeker so I would love another version of him.

    Doesn't matter what the chance is of its creation, the chance I will buy it is 0%. This is coming from someone who loves repaints and owns every single repaint of the Armada Trilogy.

    'Masterpiece' should mean something and that something should not be 'background character'.

    I could see it happening since it is only a repaint. Maybe a limited run.

    Huh. I didn't know you were color blind.

    I don't see them ever making an MP Sunstorm. I'd like to think it would be out of good taste, but I think it mostly chalks up to the fact that he's an obscure "character" and the fact that the mold has already been used for four different decos.
