Hat tip to TFW2005 boards member jru42287 for providing us with our first image of the Toys R Us exclusive Masterpiece Sunstorm. We’ve been getting a few tidbits of news about this guy lately, namely his price and possible release date in June. We now have a single image, although still a little hard to make out, revealing the deco for this figure. Sunstorm looks to be a different shade of orange from the Takara release with red detailing around the thighs and shins, as well as what looks like a brown colored helmet. Hopefully official stock images will arrive soon to confirm.
Also included with the image is the full bio of Sunstorm, which you can read in its entirety after the jump.
What do you think of the North American release of Sunstorm? Sound off after the break. Fly too close to the sun and you’ll get burned. Get too close to Sunstorm, and you’ll be dissolved into a puddle of liquid scrap. The maniacal warrior’s radiation-emitting armor has the power to melt the metal of nearby bots, disabling their circuits and scrambling their brain module in the process. Some might say this is a quirk of science – a glitch that triggered a reaction when Sunstorm was forged. Sunstorm himself would say it’s something more: a gift from higher power that he must use on those who deserve to feel his wrath. That might be a little much, but do you really want to argue with him? Autobots beware, because the ultimate Decepticon flier is on the hunt for someone to fight! He converts from robot mode to fighter jet mode, and in either mode he’s armed for major combat. His canopy and nose cone open in jet mode and his hidden missile pods deploy when he gets an Autobot in his sights! Set him on his stand in your collection when the fight is over for the day. Get a high-flying Decepticon with incredible battle features with this Masterpiece Sunstorm Figure! Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
