I gotta say...I must have a very different mental image of what Sunstorm looks like from a lot of people.

'Yellow Starscream', I think is the base, the reason I decided to use this for it was it seemed to really glow. As with all character repurposings, Starscream is in the eye of the beholder.
Edit: Plus it was actually the cheapest way to get the mold, weirdly. Ghost Starscream is part of a big set, and SG Starscream for some reason seems to go for a mint, the only reason I have that one is I had a subscription.
Edit to edit: I think part of the common renaming is a lot of us expected by some 'hints' that came to nothing that Sunstorm was going to be the extra subscription figure, and that did seem to be the plan till Hasbro pulled the license. As it was, we got SG Starscream, which I was fine with, making it my CW Skyfire, but I and a few others clearly wanted our combining yellow jet, it seems.

I have moved past the point in my life where I neurotically care about what other people call their toys on their shelves, so if people want a Sunstorm and this gives them a Sunstorm, I'm all for it. I just can't see Sunstorm when I look at it. Maybe that's because I still mostly think of him as orange instead of yellow, despite the fact that there are many yellow Sunstorms and some of them are extremely attractive.
Or maybe it's just all the chrome, since all I can REALLY see when I look at him is a bowling trophy, Starscream or otherwise.

Great...now you have me wanting to repurpose it as a trophy Galvatron has where he managed to kill Starscream for the FOURTH time, a new record, and has the cool award to prove it.
That could make a hilarious comic...
Or maybe it's something Starscream HIMSELF won in recognition of his one-millionth betrayal. Right before he gets blasted again.

For me, GL Starscream will be repurposed as Sunstorm, while SG Starscream will remain as himself, but since he'll be in a world where there's already an evil Decepticon also named "Starscream" that everyone in this world knows better, SG Starscream will be given the heroic Autobot-sounding nickname of "Storm Jet" to differentiate him from his evil counterpart and to make his new heroic Autobot allies feel less uncomfortable about having a Starscream as a new friend (particularly those like Ironhide and Cliffjumper, who have a history of being very prejudiced towards any and all Decepticons).
While typing this, it just hit me that SG Starscream "Storm Jet" would likely get along the most with Skyfire, not just because of their similar color schemes but for Skyfire's own scientific history with the evil Starscream and Skyfire's own defection from the Decepticons. And for their both being scientists.
