    yesterday, while roaming around a mom&pop store, I found a TFgenerations sunstreaker. Is he worth picking up? I have read a few times where people said it was a crappy mold and not worth the money. From what I can tell he looks decent, and dusty, found him tucked between some riser and shelfs, so yea or nay?

    You mean Universe Sunsteaker?

    I like the Sideswide/Sunstreaker mold and if it's a decent price I say it's worth it.

    I miss 5 and dimes and mom and pops.

    I say get it. If anything it's a nice story. I always fantasize about walking into a place that was a 5 and dime in the 80s and finding a cache of transformers in the backroom.

    I actually don't like the mold that much. It's versatile, but I hate the shoulders and to some extent the feet. Too fiddly and such.

    I think it's a cool mold, at this point I would definitely go for him as he's only going to get more expensive.

    It's a great mold. I think Sideswipe was the best version of the mold.

    Red Alert i find has to much QC problems. Which is a shame, I quite like as well.

    Get it now. For anything less than $15 it's worth no matter how lame you might think it is. It'll grow on you.

    i got mine on clearance and was glad i did.
    he's not my favorite of the Classics/Universe line, but he is still a solid mold.

    not one to pass up. There are other Universe figs to skip, but not this one.
