    Just picked him up tonight along with Skids...

    Other than the fact that he's just a repainted Dead End, there isn't any changes other than the cosmetic ones...

    But MAN ALIVE... It's amazing what a simple repaint can do to a figure...

    Sunstreaker is just unbelievably beautiful... Simply a MUST HAVE in your ALT collection...

    His red shoulders just scream G1 along with his now yellow sided head... His racing stripes are a nice update as well...

    The only minor issue I had with my Sunstreaker was the paint scratches on his racing stripes... But that was easily fixed with a black Sharpie...

    Overall, he is a definite buy in my book...

    Happy hunting!!! :thumb

    That's awesome, man. I gotta get mine!

    So, I'm assuming they're out in stores already? Or did you get yours off a website?

    For the folks that have him already, is the yellow consistent throughout the toy? The BT* has the two tone thing going on.

    It's pretty damned consistent... Only thing I noticed was the scratches on the black racing stripes... Other than that, he was perfect... :thumb

    My walmart is nearly wiped-out of TFs :(  there were 2 deluxes, 3 basics, one megatron, and one starscream. The only thing they had an abundance of were Megas, they had 2 Evacs, 2 Leos and 2 Mudflaps. damnit.

    I wonder if they did that on purpose to try to make him look different from DeadEnd?

    Anyway, the one I found is really nice. The joints are stiff but still nice to transform. The car mode really shines!

    The robot mode takes some getting used to. I bought the Binaltech Asterik version and I prefer that color scheme. Still the Alt version is very nice too with the red arms.

    Very nice if you can find one!

    My Sunstreaker has very sloppy paint apps on his face. Especially the silver paint. it's all over the surrounding Black areas. I tried to fix it with a Sharpie but I can only get it so close to the face without fear of coloring that part black. :(

    It should be possible to switch the red arm parts with the BT* Sunstreaker right??? I wonder how that would look...
    Yeah, the paint apps on my Sunstreaker's face isn't the best in the world, but at least the paint is where it should be... I guess I got lucky...
