We have the toy-accurate Primal coming out, so it's certainly possible Takara is starting to see an audience for that sort of thing and said toy-accurate Primal will set a precedence. Fingers crossed!

I mean, they're the same thing - and even then, MP-38 has the extra toy-accurate mutant head he didn't have in the movie. I'm gonna go with the idea it's toy-accurate.

I'm super excited for Sunstreaker but i just can't stand the toon style head. It's almost a deal breaker.
I can't understand why out of all the optional heads included how not one of them could have been a toy accurate head. Such a missed opportunity. Now i gotta pay even more for a 3rd party upgrade with a toy accurate style head.

So lame.

Mostly because Sunstreaker doesn't have optional heads - he has optional faces. The head stays on the toy, you simply switch out which expression he has.

I feel the same. This figure looks fantastic. The price hike is understandable when you consider the cost of licensing, the upped parts count for increased articulation, and all the transformation magic needed to display the vehicle as a legitimate Countach to keep Lamborghini happy or as his G1 toy/cartoon accurate self with the custom chrome spoiler and super charger engine to keep the fans happy. The head sculpt is the weakest part of the package, but not a deal breaker for me. It would be nice if an alternate toy-inspired head had been considered, even it all it did was add vent lines in the "ear" foils on the side.

Face/head.....whatever. My point being it isn't a difficult feat of engineering to put a head on a ball joint and swap out the whole kit and caboodle for options other than swapping facial expressions. There are two distinct aesthetics for this character and both should have been represented in a premium collectors piece.

He looks absolutely gorgeous!! Quick question. I usually order from TF source but that 120 price is crazy. How is Hlj as I have never used them but the 90 preorder is better. What does shipping usually run?

It will depend on yen to dollar conversion at the time. I usually pay about 10 to 12 bucks and get it in less than a week.

Check out anime-export. They're usually cheaper, but you have to pay for the item up front (and shipping later).

Hot dang he looks awesome. Backpack = win. I prefer it to Hot Rodimus' just because the intakes are forward from the back of the backpack compared to Hot Rodimus' wing being on the back of the backpack. If you get what I'm saying.

REGARDLESS! Bought. Glad I played the long game. Maybe that's what I'll do from now on.

Backpack looks alright. Sunstreaker in general is a pretty ugly character despite what he thinks of himself. Never liked his head design either. One of the worst of all the Autobot cars.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.
