Well... technically, he has made a "background appearance" in one story, but that's all it was: A one panel cameo. Barely visible, even.

I'm talking "Where's Waldo" levels of visibility. :P

He's here somewhere:

I don't care much for the yellow, but I definitely must recommend the mold. Such a great figure. Deserves to be a Masterpiece, but it's so easy to master that it could easily pass as your standard Deluxe Class figure.

Also from the twitter-verse, we have new image of Takara Tomy's exclusive MP-12T Tigertrack. This image comes to us from Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui, and gives us as side by side head shot with MP-12 Lambor. Tigertrack's head is combination of Lambor's helmet with Red Alert's face. Image mirrored below.

Site sponsor TFsource has also posted a new image of the figure with it's accessories, pre-order yours here.

Yeah,I'm not too thrilled for this Sunstreaker Masterpiece figure as his horns don't even have the golden stripes added with the lack of the backseat engine kibble that made him a souped up Lamborghini.

So when are we going to get some Autobot/Decepticon commanders back in the MP line? Still waiting for a proper Magnus and a Megatron 2.0

WOW thanks for coming out. As every article for this figure has said its TIGERTRACKS.

http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Tigertrack

Sunstreaker while IS yellow is not a carbon copy as Sideswipe. Streaker is a customized Lamborghini Countach LP500S, Swipe is off the shelf. And robot mode is completely different.

Different car looks, different robot modes, same color... if that is your only reason for posting like a idiot then you can call him Freewheeler too:

Can't you read? It's not Sunstreaker. It's Tigertrack.


As in, he's not based on this guy, but on this guy

Now, let's all move on and stop beating the poor guy...

Sweet mercy, the Univers swipe/streaker mold certainly has a lot to answer for. And the designer of said toy being so clever thought he was doing us a favour. Look at the confusion the man has caused :HEADHURTS:

Anyway, as someone else said, enough of that. This guy is too expensive, but the evil sucker is making me want him. Seriously, I mean, clever head/ face swapping? Do Takara want me to buy their toys that badly (...yes of course they do!) But that's beside the point. I was NOT supposed to be buying this mold a third time. I was NOT supposed to be feeding my Diaclone obsession.

I just wasn't [-(

Well excuse me if I didn't properly identify one of the many many Transformers in G1. When I think of Sideswipe,Sun Streaker usually isn't that far behind.

Plus the yellow color scheme could be justified as MP lines only have silver chrome and not gold.

Plus the Japanese naming of Side Swipe in this line didn't help matters.

Joke's on you, Sideswipe has always been called Lambor in Japan since his debut Generation One. It makes perfect sense for a Japanese-original Masterpiece figure to be called the Japanese name of the character it is meant to represent.

Well excuse me if I can't get minute details right 100% of the time. I'm not very fluent in my knowledge of G1 as I have never really grew up on it and have recently been watching episodes for a while now.

Which is why I pointed the finger at the Universe toy ;) I know that's bound to be %99 of the reason a lot of people were expecting MP Sideswipe to be re-painted into Sunstreaker the minute he was announced.

Live and learn fellow fan :D Trust me, should we ever get an MP Sunstreaker, he will be his own original mold based purely off of his G1 self. This fellow is Tigertrack, a very obscure, but very legitimate G1 character :BOT:

I should add that "Lambor" is rather exceptional when it comes to Japanese naming, along with "Convoy" for Optimus Prime. In Japan, most kept their English name or got a variation of it, including Sunstreaker. The Mini-Bots don't count.

Not necessarily. I can understand why it would get people's backs up, especially since this has been an issue since Sideswipe was first revealed. A yellow Sideswipe does not a Sunstreaker make, not to those old enough to know and love him ;) We may be creaking at the joints but we are still here :D
Regardless...every news post labels him MP TIGERTRACK...

Ah yeah, forgot those two. Even forgot about Meister for Jazz, Broadcast for Blaster, Laserwave for Shockwave and some others. :oops: Most of the original Mini-Bots were renamed in Japan, thus they're more exception than rule:

Bumblebee -> Bumble
Cliffjumper -> Cliff
Huffer -> Drag
Brawn -> Gong
Windcharger -> Charger
Cosmos -> Adams

Maybe I missed it earlier, but I think it's a GREAT touch to include the Autobot symbol as a sticker, instead of a tampo.

I'm not a Diaclone collector, but I can imagine this definitely adds value for those that are.

Nice move, Takara. Nice move.
