Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Sabrblade, hot on the heels of pre-orders, we have news from the Shizuoka Hobby Show, where MP-42 Cordon AKA Diaclone Sunstreaker has been revealed in full!

The most notable retool from the base MP-39 Sunstreaker mold is a brand new toy inspired head, featuring the detailing many missed from the inside of Sunstreaker's ears (Sunstreakears?).* Also included is a new police lightbar on the roof/chest, new shins featuring new detailing, and a new gun. This new image comes to us from @brickonator on Twitter.

Check out the image of his new masterpiece figure below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!

Lookin' good, but I think a red version would look even better.

I'm actually quite interested in this, but for the price, without extensive retooling, one Sunny is good enough.

I have the original red version somewhere (one of the first TFs I can remember), so I’ll hold out until they do that deco. I’m nearly certain they will, seeing as it’s kind of the very first TF toy.

Cordon's shin details and the face! :x Instant buy!

Will a "Cordon bleu" version follow? 8-}

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+.

That head sculpt! that's the head i wanted for Sunstreaker dammit.

It pains me greatly that Sunny didn't come with a G1 toy accurate option like this for a head swap when clearly it was completely possible to do so.

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 :-?

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.
