    It's real. This version (Sunstorm in U.S. Starscream reissue packaging) was never released in the U.S., but they've been showing up for a long time now from people who typically resell Lucky Draw items. What exactly it is is unclear, but my best guess is it's basically the final toy in mock-up packaging.

    I would assume the missiles are identical to the E-Hobby Sunstorm, but I don't know for certain. There's not much info around on this version, unfortunately. It just seems to pop up every now and then.

    The box itself looks fake or not official. The figure inside is very hard to tell if its a custom or the real McCoy.

    The box is just a reissue Starscream box...how does it look fake or not official?

    Trust me--These have appeared a lot from sellers that regularly sell Lucky Draw items. For example, this guy on Yahoo Japan used to sell a ton of Lucky Draw stuff:

    http://64.233.169.104/search?q=cach...rock7822000+スタースクリーム&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=us

    In the middle of that page there's a picture of one of the Sunstorms in US Starscream packaging he sold. He's sold about 4 of them so far IIRC. But he's far from the only guy to sell these. There were a lot more of these emerging a year or two ago.

    The box is a European Commemorative Series Starscream box. How does it look fake?
