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.Read Replies (0)

It's that time of year again! Time for you to sound off on who you think should be in the Transformers Hall of Fame! Please jump over to the discussion thread
between now and Friday morning to sound off on who you think should be in TFW2005's Top 5 Poll.
We will gather and list the top 5 choices and post our poll on Friday, where you can then make your final TFW2005 vote.
Our poll will end Monday morning, and will be submitted later that day.
Our results will be combined with all the other fan sites who are participating by the folks at Hasbro. Using all that data, they will post a poll on their Facebook page where fans can make their final vote. The winners will be announced at Botcon 2014!
As a reminder, below are the characters who have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame and are therefore not eligible to be inducted this year.

Thanks to a pre-order listing first put up by TFW sponsor BigBadToyStore
, third party group FansToys have announced their next project which will continue their lineup of Masterpiece styled Dinobot releases. This time around they will be tackling FT-06 Sever, which is an homage to the Generation 1 Dinobot Snarl. FansToys have made a name for themselves ever since their first release of the Masterpiece-esque Quakewave and have been building much hype with their Masterpiece style Dinobots as well (Scorn being the first to hopefully be released at the end of this month).
Pre-order listings for Sever are now live on both BigBadToyStore
, both of which include an early-bird discount if you pre-order before July 31st.
