    Why do people like him so much? Aside from a brief appearance in the Dreamwave comics, I'm not really familiar with the character's having done anything. Can anyone explain why he's so many people's (2nd) favorite seeker?

    He's orange and the fact an animation error was turned into something meaningful.

    Its like Sideswipe, both did nothing of note (in regards to the cartoon) but still have their fans regardless.

    I always thought it was because he was such an over the top, outrageous pseudo-zealot that you just can't help but be entertained by him. Maybe that's just me.

    I wasn't aware he was all that popular. Yes, it's true that people always cry out for a toy of him, but that's because they want a "complete" set of Classics Seekers, not necessarily because they care about him.

    I don't like him. I was bored with too much Sunstorm dross in Dreamwave.

    Some people probably like him because hes been portrayed as having ridiculous-over-the-top-dont-you-even-think-about-trying-anything-buddy powers, and it appeals to some fans that a seeker can knock out Omega Supreme.

    Well, he was a Mary Sue for Mad Brick back in the day...

    besides that, there's nothing special about him. I just think the vocal minority go on about him.

    This thread has made me wish for Sunstorm repaints of the "classics" Seeker mold and the ROTF voyager Starscream mold.

    Also, I think I'll cruise by the buy/sell/trade area and see if anyone has the Cybertron Legends class Sunstorm for cheap.

    This thread should have a warning sign: "May cause sudden cravings for Cream-seekers." :lol

    I cant have enough classics/Universe/generations toys and because he would be such an obvious repaint I REALLY want him. I'm sort of indiffrent to the character.

    Sunstorm is Sooooooo damn popular becuase he's coloured like a frickin' Creamsicle.


    Besides i prefer Slipstream over Sunstorm anyday.



    And now if you excuse me i'm going to lick my Sunstorm....:p

    if Sun Storm ranks high on the marry sue gauge Slip Stream goes off the charts and makes it explode in a blaze of fan fic filed chunks.

    I'm not saying that you think he's a marry sue but I gotta mild hate for Slip Stream when it comes to why she's so popular for doing nothing
