    Hi Guys,

    I've got a MISB Commemorative Sunstorm or "USA Sunstorm" as its sometimes known in a C9(IMO) box. Single taped.

    I'm hard pressed on what i could sell in order to get other TF i've got my eye on so i'm just wondering if this is worth anything?

    It's not a box swap. There are a few floating around members collections but its not known how many exist and if this was an unreleased sample or how they came to be.

    Let me know what you think, open to EOI also

    Cheers

    Linton

    never sceen it, to me it looks like a boxswap but I think there are other collectors here that can share light on this if this is legit.

    If it is legit then you should probbaly contact diablen.

    Funny, thats how I keep my loose TFC Starscream boxed since I don't have the original box for it.

    Well, looking from the box, it looks like a European or non North American release. I never heard of this before personally, so I'm not sure if it is a box swap or not.

    These have been seen before, they're from the original release of Sunstorm, not the recent re-issue.

    I can't remember the story behind them, but I'm sure Diablen will show up soon, I think he's got one.

    I couldn't spitball a value other than to say it's probably worth a lot less now that Sunstorm has been reissued.

    diablien has been banned unfortunately. me and deceptigtar know him personally so we could probably email him and ask about the value of this. though not sure if this would interfere with the board rules.

    Last two I saw on ebay went for around $100 ~ $120, which ironically was lower than the original Japanese issue
