Exactly my thoughts.

Usually I'm not a huge fan of repaints, however these Diaclone-inspired Masterpiece figures (Cordon, Exhaust and so on) are very interesting, at least in my opinion.

Still I would kill for a show accurate Reflector Masterpiece to complete my 1st wave Decepticons diorama...

Just thinking... they may have had to slightly alter/remold parts around the head. It looks bigger than the "anime" Sunstreaker head. Either that, or the head itself transforms/collapses in on itself.

What I'm getting at is, that that head might not have been possible on the original run of MP-39 :-?

How is this not extensive retooling? New head, new gun, new legs, new chest, etc ...

It's definitely not Titans Return Scourge into Highbrow into Windblade, but it's definitely got some big things going on.

New G1 styled head is very awesome. I look forward to the inevitable MP-39+.

I guess extensive retooling was the wrong phrase to use. What I mean is, it needs to look like a different figure, similar to Tracks and Roadrage, for me to justify the cost.

While this is nice, it doesn't look too different than Sunny (yes, that is just my opinion).

Unless of course, I can find this on sale.

Cordon is Autobot! *slams table*

C'mon! It's a made up character. With red eyes. Just fill out the Decepticon ranks!

I agree that was a fail. It should have been Barricade.

A reflector is what I wanted too. But dont forget tge insecticons and triple changers to round out the pre-1986 movie decepticon cast. Im gonna be saving a lot of money if the focus on beast wars instead of G1 next year.

Unfortunately for me, I'm collecting both G1 Decepticons and Beast Wars figures (no Shadow Panther though, just the characters from the show).

Probably Reflector will be neglected to the characters you mentioned, or some 2010 character (there have been only Autobots till now, except for the Soundblaster/Ratbat combo, I think). Also maybe "Red Sunstreaker" will be a :CON: too! Let's just hope it will mantain Cordon's head...

Sorry, but Red Sunstreaker has a name: Spinout, and is a "Fuel Preperation Specialist for the :BOT:

Will this be some kind of exclusive? Waiting to preorder from Amazon Japan if possible. Hopefully there's more to the figure that we've seen.

Good thing I've got some Decepticon stickers from Reprolabels. :) That's definitely the face of a 'Con.

Maybe I'll just wait for the black repaint. ;)

Never happen, but I can hope, right? He'd need a new name though.

Honestly, I prefer the look of Cordon over Sunstreaker. Part of the reason why I hadn’t gotten Sunstreaker yet is because I felt the cartoon-accurate look doesn’t match with Sideswipe well, but Cordon’s toy-accuracy does! Gimme a Sunstreaker with that head and shins and I will absolutely buy one!

Thanks to Maz of the Maz at TFSquareOne fame over on Twitter, we have some new official stock images of the recently revealed Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-42 Cordon - the white, black and red Diaclone Super Tuning Patrol deco of what will eventually become Sunstreaker in the Transformers toyline - in both Lamborghini and robot modes, and a variety of poses, found on Amazon Japan, via a news blog gallery here.

Those familiar with the MP-39 Sunstreaker mold will not be surprised by the toy's design, but might still want to take a look at the new deco, the shiny chrome gun, and the mean looking new headsculpt too. Check them all out below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

First off, he's a cop, and has a gun in his leg. ROBOCOP MUCH?! :lol:

second, he looks quite menacing. He seriously shoulda been a Con.

The close up on the silver gun shaped like the wrist rocket on the G1 version looks like it might slot into the wrist some kind of way. I guess it's not a huge deal, but I'd like that feature. I'm getting it either way.

I suppose at this point I will say I'd like to see something new coming (besides Beast Wars Megatron). I'm spotty on the mold reuses.

I don't even collect MPs cause of their price point; I'm doing well enough to try to have a chug collection. This, however, is fantastic. That menacing face, and that it's a Japanese(?) vehicle with text, I really like this.
