    Sunstreaker is awesome but if he is missing his Spoiler.... I hope you didn't pay that much.

    the heavy price for sunstreaker came mostly from it's accessories though, the body itself cost less than the accessories.(Unless we are talking about a super mint one)

    I had mine out of storage the other day. It's a beautiful thing. I'm thnking of sticking all the recent stuff into storage and going all G1 for my home TF display.
    Yeah, he has quite a few bits that can easily go missing, what with his fists and missiles and shoulder wotsits too.

    I missed out on it first time around in G1 so I was pleased when we got the Euro Classics so I could nab Sunstreaker and Wheeljack. :)

    I got my Sunstreaker in the mid '90s for $20 complete and C9. It's a gorgeous toy, I hope you like it!

    I just bought one up over the weekend and it arrived Tuesday. I paid a hefty price for him but he came MIB complete. The stickers, paperwork and accessories were still sealed in bag and have never been touched. Sunstreaker himself is in true Mint condition as well. Seller said they had been in storage for the last 20 years or so. Cost me about $180 shipped but money well spent.

    He's the only TF I ever regret selling, and now cannot afford to replace.

    My Sunstreaker is pretty beat up but I still love him. Got him from a garage sale years ago. He's also missing his spoiler..and fists...and missles..and..lots of other stuff. hahaha. Still, he's awesome! Will be better when he's complete.

    I had the red version of him when I was younger (diakron) and didn't get the "real" yellow one till my very first botcon ,I ended up buying two junkers and combining them to form a complete one, then a friend was selling random tf parts and she had all the accesories + manual for sunstreaker and just gave that to me :)  (although now I think i have 3 complete yellow streakers and 1 almost complete red one) he was the last g1 car I needed to complete the pre-movie lines. not a bad toy at all.

    I have him also. Gonna be looking for his accessories soon, but I have other things to complete first. The only thing I dont like is the annoying black flap that covers his arms in alt mode. It never stays closed. Other thanthat he is pretty awesome.

    I still have my original Sunstreaker. He was a fun toy for his time, and still great today.

    Got mine in a lot buy that averaged me about $6 a figure, with decent paint and nice chrome with the spoiler! Then I got the fist and rockets from evilbay, I had a missile in one of my parts bags for years. So I now have complete Sunstreaker that cost me a total of $36.

    I had to go through 3 of them before finding the one I have now.
    He can easily suffer from chrome, paint and sticker wear
