He looks awesome.. only gripe is the chrome... always disliked it. Mp hot rod was losing some paint after two transformations.


Also.. where's his gun referenced from? Don recall the toy having one..or am I mistaken?

Sunstreaker holding his arm is specifically from Roll For It, but that one works, too.

Like Ironhide getting patched up, Sunstreaker complaining about his bruises is a common thing in the cartoon. :))

Indeed!

I gotta say, though: Sunstreaker never looked so good! Can't wait!

Quick question for everyone. I don't have any version of MP Sideswipe, and I'm considering the new anime acurate version or Sunstreaker. I only want to get one for cost reasons. If you had to choose just one, which would you and why?

Honestly, there's not that much difference. If you can get a good deal on either, go for it. It's a great mold. Just make sure you're not buying a KO.
Sorry, i just caught that I misunderstood the question. Sideswipe vs Sunstreaker? Sunstreaker looks to be a lot more articulate, but Sideswipe's head sculpt is better.

Sideswipe - at least for now - seems to be the much better option. As it's a very minor redeco it's basically a re-issue; and a re-issue of a figure that is known to be an excellent toy. Not only that but it costs a lot less than Sunstreaker but is the same size. I'd suggest waiting for sales on Sunstreaker.

Pre-orders are up for Sunstreaker (and Sideswipe). The MSRP is a ridiculous 12,000 JPY, that's the same as the much larger Optimus Primal and 2,000 JPY more than Ironhide and Ratchet! What on Earth could justify that price jump? Sure, he has a lot of accessories, but so do the vans and Primal.

Meanwhile MP-12+ is 8,500 JPY.

I thought Primal was the same size as the car bots; basically Voyager?

But yeah, the price jump is insane. We've been thinking it's due to parts count in order to make the transformation work.

I've never compared, but he's at least larger than Rhinox so I'm pretty sure he's taller than most average Voyagers. I had assumed Cheetor was the size of the cars and Primal was somewhere between the cars and the vans, but again, I've never compared. I'm redoing my shelves so everything is in boxes right now. :|

But yeah, the price jump is insane. We've been thinking it's due to parts count in order to make the transformation work.

He does appear to have a large parts count, but Primal's is deceptively large as well, plus he has size and the ever expensive electronics going for him. Still feels like Sunstreaker should have been closer to 10,000 JPY all things considered. Maybe they got screwed on the license renewal?

Then again, they did price MPM Bumblebee at 10,000 JPY and he comes with very few accessories so maybe Takara Tomy is raising the MP prices across the board?

I'm sure this has already come up, but we'll likely see a G1 toy-style MP with red shoulders in the future, right? I mean, we still don't have a dark purple Shockwave, but it seems likely.

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.

A Beast Wars II movie, in which Convoy (Optimus Primal) guest starred.

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.
