I've been waiting for this. It looks great. The only thing I'd like is an alternative helmet. I'm not a fan of the roundness.

I guess he's nice if you like Sunstreaker. Always felt his ego was overcompensating for the fact he never looked as quite as nice as Sideswipe (and even then I liked Sideswipe's car mode much more than the robot mode. A red Lamborghini Countach was just a damn cool thing in the 80s. I even had a non-Transformers poster of that car on my wall). For you G1 MP fans this looks like a good product though (hopefully with as few flaws as possible)

This is an early look. I hope it gets the chrome exhaust in vehicle mode

This is really out of the blue... but for the first time i think i prefer Badcube's instead of the official product. Does look bloody great though ;)^

Finally Sideswipe's buddy! And this completes the Autobot cast from Trans-Europe Express.

The gun storage in his leg is pretty cool.

Doesn't look like the chest uses the actual windshield in robot-mode?


yeah it does seems like it use faux parts. In fact, if you check the backpack on the 2nd pic, you can slightly see the actual windshield sticks out.

There's something off about him. Can't put my finger on it. Maybe the faux roof/chest is throwing me off.

Definitely was not expecting this! Looks great! ;)^ The one thing I hope they fix is that his spoiler should be silver, as it also was in the cartoon. If they are striving for toon-accuracy, the spoiler should indeed be silver.

SUNSTREAKER DO NOT HOLD THE DISABLED CHILD LIKE THAT :shock:


Maaan this figure looks great. I've been liking Sunstreaker's design a lot recently, and I'm very curious about what mold re-uses'll happen - holding out for Red Sunstreaker. Red Sun streaker? Red Star, Starstreaker...

I'll think over the names later. Only thing that's really detracting from the figure for me is the head; those horns need to be angled!

I need more pics, but I may like this better than Sunsurge. How official is this, in terms of reliability. The thread I saw on Facebook wasn't 100% sure of its legitimacy.

might actually get this. not overly cartoony and looks simliar to sunsurge.

hopefully they will add chrome and an optional silver face.

I already determined a few years ago that Diaclone Red Sunstreaker's name should be "Hotstreak."

Its not. You can tell beause there is no big autbot sign in vehicle mode, plus the windsheild is much bigger than what we see on the robot chest.

I dont know, maybe its because I have no attachement to this character, but this doesnt look that great. Vehicle mode is amazing though!

Looks legit to me. Takara toys get revealed in magazines and the next one is due out soon so these are scans of that. Whats too bad is that I was hoping Dinobot would be seen before. But hey, this is great news for those worrying that the G1 characters were gonna get ignored. I guess that makes Dinobot MP 40

Damnit!

Has the white Diaclone Sunstreaker been named yet? If not, I propose: "Whitehot!"

Funny thing is, it was silver on the original toy as well. This spoiler therefore ends up being accurate to... the Universe toy and IDW. Hhhhhuh.

Hoping we'll see comparisons to Sideswipe in the upcoming months, especially in car mode. Must admit I'm kind of surprised that they didn't do anyone who shares a name with a TLK character to cash in on that Branding™. No Hound? No Grimlock remake?

Actually...

Diaclone Red Sunstreaker's name is Countach LP500s Super Tuning. :(

Boy! Things got a lot more fun when Hasbro took over the brand. :lol:

I like Hotstreak!!!!!! :KREMZEEK:

Maybe they will reassign Spin-out's faction to Decepticon. Don't need ANY more Autobots.

In other news: FINALLY!!! Having Sideswipe for so long without this guy felt a little wrong.

The creatively-named "Sunstreaker Police Type".
