    Man, I love it. Nice seeing detailed angles of the Sideswipe-style transformation. And that backpack just looks cool no matter what side it clips on.

    One great thing about this figure is that once Sideswipe is out as well, it'll make it super easy to create do-it-yourself Tigertrack and Red Diaclone Sunstreaker figures. Just a one-for-one headswap and an alternate transformation... done!

    Edit: Oh, and this photo is just plain awesome.

    Wow. That is impressive and basically shows that I can do the two customs I want to do with this figure once Sideswipe is out. Extra Sunstreaker with a Sideswipe head becomes Tigertrack and Sideswipe with a new head into Road Rage. Sweet... this line can't get here fast enough.

    According to last year's Botcon he's supposed to have a new head. If plans have changed we'll probably find out in the next couple of days.

    looking a the way the head is designed (the inner part is very Sideswipe-y), they may just take the ears off and plug the holes.

    Do the ears fold up for transformation? The Sideswipe head may just be that head without unfolding them.

    Actually, it's kind of like an automorph feature... as you rotate the hood the head comes up out of the chest and the ears unfold at the same time. Seems like if they intend to use the same head they'd probably have to remove the ears and plug the holes.

    I saw these pics earlier today. Can't wait to get him and Prowl. He looks way better than the terrible Alternator.

    Wow, I didn't realize Sunstreaker's bot mode could be transformed two different ways. Both look awesome. I'm going to have a tough time deciding which one I'm going to keep him in. Guess I'll just go back and forth.

    Ah. I guess they could do that than, but would the head look like Sideswipe's with the ears in?

    Okay, that does it.

    Now I just want all of the 84 Autobot cars to be Classics. Tracks, Wheeljack, Trailbreaker/Hoist and Skids are pretty much all we have left that nothing has been said about, right? I know I've ready they want to do Ironhide/Ratchet already and have plans for it... Trailbreaker/Hoist is easy repaint fodder, though!
