Flarestrike is a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to Sunstorm made by Play With This Too.

He has powerful fire based powers, is immune to most fire and heat damage. He wears an Aegis armor which is capable of interplanetary flight thanks to its Cosmoglider wings, which can also be changed into Cosmoshield that can deflect almost any attack. His Battle Shroud mask protects his hearing and vision from overload by enemy attack. His weapons include a Strike Scepter and a Megaton Mace. He wears a Babel Bracer which translates all languages and Tachyon Telegraph which can send and receive transmissions with an interplanetary range.

He has a Tech Drone Squire named R-Tire to turns into a jet.

Development

Flarestrike's design is based on the shape of Pretender Starscream, but with the colors of Sunstorm.

Art of Flarestrike was first displayed at Rhode Island Comic Con. 2014.[1]

Flarestrike and Jetstrike were among the stretch goals for the Lost Protectors Kickstarter campaign. They were to be unlocked if the campaign raised at least $280,000. The head sculpts of Flarestrike and Jetstrike were also offered to supporters who pledged enough money. [2]

In June 2015 Play With This Too released renders of the Strike Scepter on their Facebook page.

In August 2015 Play With This Too released images of prototype parts for Jetstrike and a color render of Flarestrike, announcing it would be part of their second Kickstarter campaign.

Flarestrike was one of the ten initial figures available as a reward for the unsuccessful Boneyard & Jetstrike Action Figures Kickstarter campaign, which began in September 2015.[3]

A 35mm figure and two Titan Master faces of Jetstrike were placed for sale on the Prize Inside Shapeways store in March 2017.

Mathew R. Ignash invented the title Regent of the Stellar Wave, named the Strike Scepter and suggested the name R-Actor for the Tech Drone who would become R-Tire.
