This is the perfect way to describe Sunstorm. Taken fron Teletran Wiki:
Sunstorm believes that he is the living embodiment of the Will of Primus, placed by the divine in this universe to deal righteous judgment on the blasphemous. His judgment is swift, painful, relentless, and punctuated with the recitation of Holy Writ. His power is only surpassed by his conviction.
He was one of the Decepticon jets on Cybertron four million years ago.
Originally sold only in a separately-packaged-toys set with Hauler exclusive to e-Hobby, Sunstorm is a redeco of the original Starscream toy, transforming into an F-15 fighter jet.
Sunstorm was later reissued in 2008 due to the encore line, sold with a special comic in which he appears. (Which I own as of a year ago) The only difference is that the "Collector's Edition mark is on the other top corner and it now has a Takara Tomy mark instead, as well as the heat rub sign is relocated to the other side ( facing away from you, it's the right side in alt mode)
Another character that I have no idea why was he picked into the line up. Spinster is a G1 character from 1988 (whom I do not have). As far as my G1 collection it stops at 1987. I have no intention as of now to get into the targetmasters and pretenders line. Maybe, just maybe when I finally complete my 86'-87' series (I am only missing a half a dozen of) I'll think about it. Plus, I'm running out of room in my glass cases! Anyways, He was considered a targetmaster with two Nebulan partners; Singe and Hairsplitter.
Decepticons that are non-sentient drones. They are controlled by Megatron or their representative leader at the time.
Vehicon is short for Decepticon Tropper.
For some reason I find the need to build an army of these guys. I am far from doing so and have never had the urge to have the same guy in 5 different colors. With the Vehicons they come in different molds most of the time. There is a winged Vehicon, a car Vehicon, and a Vehicon that has no transformation and has a gun as a hand. Hasbro needed a third one and figured "let's just throw a gun on him." As long as they are all different I will keep buying them.
I have yet to find the "Prime" version. Some reason when I go hunting I find EVERYTHING but him. WTF? I mean bumblebee in all versions for dayz!!! It's kind of annoying.
One of the few Transformers that I never knew until the first Transformers movie came out in 2007. When he first appeared with all the leaked pics/videos of the movies, I was floored! I couldn't believe that they had gotten Ford to agree to use the Mustang. From what I know it isn't easy to get car manufacturers to use their products in movies, especially as a "bad guy". He turns out to be a Saleen S281E police car. Beautiful car and amazingly fast.
I got attached to him quickly and when the movie came out it was just beyond words can describe. I so attached to his character that I had gone out and bought his shirt ( I still wear to this day ) On his rear quarter it reads "To punish and enslave..." I guess it's a parody of the classic police slogan "To Protect and Serve". Great idea Bay! The front quarter police logos have the Decepticon symbol on them and the writing "Pacis Quod Alcedonia", Latin for "Still, Halcyon Days of Peace", and "Incorporated since June 1865".
With all that said and a little knowledge of Barricade he has made his way into the Kre-O line but only as a Kreon. He comes in a little set with Autobot Troopers.
Energon cubes can be created by Soundwave, who generated the empty cube framework from his chest. So the Autobots were apparently unaware of them until their reawakening on Earth in 1984, when Hound described them to Prime as simply "some kind of cube". (This is a little perplexing in light of the fact that energon cubes were also shown to have existed by the time of Optimus Prime's creation at the end of Cybertron's Golden Age. War Dawn). It's a little confusing to why the Autobots never knew they existed?
The liquid energon within energon cubes is a glowing pink color, they can be compressed for easy storage and transport.
Now my little plastic bots/cons can fight over the most prized source of energy on Cybertron!
Months and months of waiting and I skipped over to GameStop to get my reserved copy. With your reserved copy from GameStop you get a code for the "G1 Retro Pack". This includes a G1 Optimus Prime character that works in single and multiplayer modes. Two throwback weapons from the Transformers' G1 including a Megatron scoped pistol and a Shockwave blast cannon.
And if that wasn't retro enough, the trailer for the "G1 Retro Pack" features an awesome 80s style action sequence with "The Touch" by Stan Bush, one of the standout songs from the soundtrack of the 1986 film "The Transformers: The Movie". It's so cool that it will make you old school "Transformers" fans forget how old you really are now.
You've seen the trailers and pics. It's just as amazing as all you have been seeing. So far in the first chapter, no disappointment at all. I do have to say that it was crazy. A LOT going on. Things blowing up, autobots/decepticons flying all over the place into bits! I defiantly recommend a copy for whatever system of your liking.
A while back I had posted my story of getting the display case when Dark of the Moon was released to Blu-Ray. I went to Shaws and put my name on the list and I think it was a week later I got a phone call saying it was mine! To this day he has been laying comfortably apart in my parents basement until I got a room to show off my collection of plastic. I'm about done, I just have a few finishing touches to do. I thought that it was about time for him to make the appearance to the room. He looks like he fits right in. I love it! It brings the room together. Not only do I have plastic everywhere, I have comics, displays, beach balls, stickers, etc. When I finish everything to where I want it, I'll have plenty of pics to show the room complete.
As you can see he has the spots of where the DVDs go. I have my girlfriend working on something clever to put/replace so it doesn't look weird.
By far the best screen shot of the game I've seen yet! I hope Grimlock is going to be as amazing as he is hyped up to be!
Tomorrow afternoon I will begin my quest...
1 more day left!!!
This can only be completed if you buy all 7 Kre-O sets of the series 2 release. They include Wheeljack vs. Knock-Out, Megatron vs Optimus, Cliffjumper and the Vechicons, Barricade and the Autobot Troopers, Stealth Bumblebee, Vortex, and Devastator.
Each set comes with little Kre-O Energon looking parts. They are a clear purple (really easy to spot in the bags). On the back of each box it says collect them all to create the Ultimate Dark Energon Weapon. The catch to this is that there is NO instruction booklet on how to put it together once you have all the pieces! You have a little picture that you have to figure out on your own how it goes together. I've been working on it for a couple of weeks. Avoiding YouTube and the internet because I wanted to figure it out on my own. Last night I sat down for an hour and I think I finally figured it out. Here is my interpretation of how it goes together.
I have plenty of pics so you can take a look at what I think. This is the best I can come up with.
Overall, it's not bad. It looks best with Series 1 Megatron. If you decide to use any of the other characters, it just looks clunky and doesn't seem to look right on them. Plus, it is Dark Energon...Only one guy can really be the sole holder of that..........
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 900+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
