Transformers Masterpiece Sunstorm (Japanese)


If you’ve been reading my reviews, you might remember that I have fourteen of the fifteen versions of the Masterpiece jet mold.  (Or you don’t, because why would you care?)  I finally made it fifteen of fifteen, and I swear it’s not a cry for help.  Really.

I’m not going to go into detail on the mold as I have done so many times.  For more info please see my previous reviews of Masterpiece Starscream (Japanese), Masterpiece Thundercracker (USA), Masterpiece Acid Storm (USA), Masterpiece Sunstorm (USA), Masterpiece Skywarp (Asia), Masterpiece Starscream (USA), Masterpiece Thundercracker (Asia), and Masterpiece Ramjet (Japanese).  In the photos he is pictures with the USA version of Sunstorm.  One of these days, I need to get all fifteen together for some pictures.

This is the Sunstorm we should have got in the USA.  While I would have preferred him to be universally orange rather than yellow on the rear half of the jet, he still looks awesome, certainly better than the mustard and brown abomination that is the USA Sunstorm.  I really don’t think the cape, crown, and shoulder pads add much, as they were only included because they were included with the version of Starscream he was repainted from, but they look fine.

Overall: As a completists or a fan of Takara’s G1 reissues he’s a must.

Thanks for reading!
