    I recently bought an Alternator Sunstreaker. I actually don't like it very much...easily the least-impressive Alternator I own...

    Anyway, my question is, how do you make it a convertible without breaking it? The box makes reference to "Removable convertible top!" but the instructions offer no help in getting the top removed. I quick look-see, and I really don't see how the top can even come off. Er...is that just a typo on the box?

    And, does the Dodge Viper mold have an opening trunk? All the Alternators seem to have working doors, hood, and trunk, but no trunk on this Alternator.

    Sunstreaker (as far as I know) isn't a convertible. The Viper mold does not have a trunk.

    yeah it's a mistake on the box. There's no convertable top. As far a trunk goes, technically the DeadEnd/Sunstreaker mold has a trunk but you have to remove a screw from the underside and then you can kind of open the trunk lid. There's nothing under there aside from a flat panel so it's rather pointless but technically it does open.

    if you unscrew a little screw thats holding his trunk down, it actually does open but its not actually deep like a trunk would be, and you need to cut a little piece of plastic to make it open all the way

    EDIT: damn you Sy-Rein, I'm to slow at typing today

    I love the Sunstreaker mold...its definitely suits him more than it does Sideswipe.
