    Look at all the yummy chrome! But I just know some people are going to hate the chrome spoiler on Streak. :eek:

    Those are official stock photos, we've seen them before, and they're also available at other online stores.

    Being stock solicitation photos, they are owned by TakaraTomy, so Rapid Culture unfortunately has no ownership to them.

    From my observation, we westerners (and for balance, western asians) generally tend to think chrome used in the random fashion as sometimes seen in Japanese toys is cheesy and tacky. Too much bling ;)

    Not necessarily, it just means "we've seen those photos, they're not news".

    I just noticed there's ANOTHER prefixed name:" Cybertron Streak".

    WTF, Takara?

    Looks very nice. I like the chrome parts as they make the toys feel a little more G1 to me. (Tho Streak does have a little too much) I was hoping that Octone would have hade his entire claw weapon chromed to match his G1 version, but I guess the hinges would have made that not possible. :(

    Sorry if this has been answered before. But will Lambor come with the backpack like Sunny? Doesn't look like it. :(

    He doesn't have them in the stock photos and I don't see it in the in-package photos either.

    I phrased it wrongly, I think the word "hosted" would have been better. I've edited my post. My bad :eek: 

    Could not secure the copyright? But they managed to with BT-03 Streak :(

    I just picked all three of these tonight in Akihabara.

    Lambor does not come with Sunstreaker's backpack. He comes with his chrome gun, and thats all.

    There is another thing I noticed tonight about Lambor, after looking over dozens of them in the shop, each every one that I saw has small "swirl" in the plastic near the Driver's side headlight. This is where the plastic was injection molded, and just like the G1 version's spoiler, the same swirl can be seen in the plastic. In general the red is very nice, but very "swirly" like you see in some of the grey plastics Hasbro uses.

    The instructions are for Lambor himself, unlike the Hasbro Sideswipe which was just a copy of Sunstreaker's instuctions.

    There is a new comic packed in with this set of three, which features, Lambor, Octane, and Streak. I don't a way to upload pictures here in hotel room, but suffice to say its a simple comic like the ones packed in with Prowl and Sunstreaker.

    Henkei "Deluxe Wave 2" In-Package Pics (Lambor, Cybertron Streak, Destron Octone)

    I think these pics deserve a thread of their own but if the powers that be do not think so, kindly merge with: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-henkei-lambor-streak-destron-octone-out.html please :) 

    Pics were taken in my car trunk, so pardon the poor lighting :eek: 

    Just picked these guys up today:
