Now, just mere weeks before it's release, we finally have some in-packaging photos of MP-39 Sunstreaker! The pictures, coming from an account over on Weibo, show the traditional, high-quality box that most MP releases come in. The packaging also shows off his articulation, accessories, and scale compairisons, like normal. Something interesting to note (and something that's shown in the photos) is that his front-of-box pose is inspired by his classic G1 packaging, something we haven't really seen in Masterpiece releases. It will be fun to see if this is a running change with MP packaging! Check out the photos mirrored below, and then tell us in the Energon forum if you'll be picking this figure up!

I'm bummed there is no alternate G1 toy head. Hope a 3p will chime in with one of those in case we want to swap out.

I guess I'm the minority, but I'm cool with them looking more like the cartoon.

Oh don't get me wrong. That's my preference, BUT some of the other Masterpieces they've included both options.

In several of those more recent cases like Inferno, Grapple, and BW Convoy it was because those toy-based faces were also seen in the cartoons.

The whole purpose of the Masterpiece series is to make cartoon-accurate Transformers. The only reason why most figures aren’t 100% cartoon-accurate is because it’s technically difficult to pull it off for some characters. MP’s arent intended to make “good-looking” Transformers but to make them as cartoon-accurate as possible. They make the vehicle modes real-life accurate because of licensing obligations. That’s why the non-licensed alt-modes are cartoon-accurate as well.

I know this. Known this since 2003 which is why I'm not understanding the hate. To make these figures look like the animated versions and I think it's a slap in the face to knock such a feat as it wasn't drawn to represent a true transforming robot but to simplify the appearance of said robot.

Ironhide was figure of the year last year and it looked fantastic. My one complaint with Sunstreaker is the lack of a gun hand.

SS never showed his "pile driver"/missiles in the show so too bad. :(

Was wondering about that too but his face design in the anime was nailed almost immediately. Just like Lambor and the rest of the gang. (WJ excluded)

The Fuso boys, had differing face designs so OCD Takara gave us a bone (Grimlock only had one differing during SOS Dinobots so an exception?)

It all comes down to whatever appeared in the cartoon from MP-10 on. Grimlock being MP-8 falls outside that, so he had some toy-accurate detailing by virtue.
That's not to say there will never be a a toy-accurate Sunstreaker head, however expect that one to be used for the inevitable Diaclone-based retool called Spin-Out.

Yeah, I was thinking of that, too. I'm guessing we WILL see a toy accurate head for a red and/or police diaclone version. Hoping for both of those. Definitely two instant-buys for me.

I have appreciated it when Takara has given us both options in a set. It's fun to swap them out in the ole display as toy accurate one week... and cartoon accurate the next. Hope they do more of that. And if they don't, will be cheering when a 3P helps us out.

Thanks to long time site sponsor Robot Kingdom, we have some brand new images for the upcoming Masterpiece Sunstreaker figure! These brand new stock photos illustrate how the toy is packaged with his many accessories, including Chip and his wheelchair. They also show off his collector's coin, featuring a case based on the hood of a Lamborghini Countach, the car his alt mode is based on. Check out those (and even more) images down below, and tell us in the Energon Pub Forums if these new stock photos changed your mind at all in picking up this figure.

I'm assuming Chip's wheelchair is going to be painted.

Because there's one guy you don't want it tick off, it's a the guy with the upper body strength to rip a floppy like paper.

Nope.

In fact, no official toy of Carly of any kind has been made yet.
