    I noticed a listing on BBTS for a Sunstorm Bust by Diamond Select: Sunstorm Bust - Transformers Busts G1 Style Busts at BigBadToyStore

    No pictures yet :(  I am curious to see if this is a repaint of a previous release or if Sunstorm is going to get something all unique to call his own.

    EDIT: Pic found by Ricochet!

    EDIT2: Unfortunately this is a repaint of the previously released Starscream bust. Nothing unique for Sunstorm :(

    My guess is another repaint. I love Sunstorm. Dreamwave sold me on the character.

    Can't believe we got Acid Storm before him in the Universe line :(

    It would be nice iF we got him in Universe/Classics 3.0, in translucent plastics. Hopefully the mold hasn't been completely turned to muck.

    Awesome! I added the image to the first post of the thread. Looks pretty darn good. It looks like this will be a new sculpt, although it is obviously similar to the Thundercracker one they did.

    EDIT: Damn it.. looks like it's just a repaint of the Starscream bust.

    I probably would've bought this if he was a repaint of their Thundercracker or Skywarp busts. The smirk just doesn't work for Sunstorm.

    I will wait for this one to go on sale. I cannot see paying full price for this one.

    It looks very nice. The colours work well. I'd just rather spend the money on an actual Transformer, though.

    Repaint or no, Sunstorm is my favorite Decepticon character so I will be purchasing this bust. And to be quite honest, I'm not really that into busts... er, I mean, YES I AM!! :crazy:
