    Sunstorm is such a bad fan character, but he's become so popular over the years that having a version of him is unavoidable. I got the yellow seeker KO, because I'm absolutely sure that the seeker in More than Meets the Eye part 1 is not truly orange (and dreamwave sunstorm is amber colored, with an orange chest piece). I fixed most of the joint problems with this toy and painted the chest with safety orange spray paint. I specifically wanted the look of the dreamwave comic and what I've done seems to achive this, but I could use a few opinions to help me sleep at night.

    Do the fore-arms and feet have to be white or does the silver work here?

    Silver works, going by that comic cover you put up.

    White would be the way to go if you were going off of a still from the cartoon.

    nice job, if I REALLY had to be nitpicky, I'd say tone down the silver a smidge to look more metal grey....

    otherwise, I love it.

    as for the KO, what are the joint problems? I've been thinking about getting one of these, just never had someone to tell me what to expect....
