    I just received them this morning and I like them so much more than I even expected to... Iron Factory keeps outdoing themselves.

    Looking at Sunstreeker I feel like Wheeljack could be done somewhere down the line.

    I feel like Wheeljack would work best, but I could see Tracks out of the mold too.
    I wonder if they decided to skip a Red Alert remold out of Sideswipe since they went with the heavy remold into Jazz.

    The only reason they'd skip a Red Alert repaint would be if they suddenly became allergic to money.

    I expect a Red Alert repaint as a convention exclusive or in a build-a-figure manner (or perhaps both as they did with the seeker repaints).

    Forget Red Alert, I want Deep Cover and Clampdown and Tigertrack and do police- and red- 'streakers have a "name" yet?

    Keep in mind that Jazz is just sharing design and engineering with Sideswipe - they didn't actually retool the mold they used to produce Sideswipe, so Lambo redecos aren't off the table by any means.

    Didn't even consider that.
    Yeah, if they just reused some of the design tricks (and why not? Blazedash and Boltrunner are probably the best thing they put out last year) then they could still pull off a repaint or remold.

    Does anyone know what the little black tabs that are located on sunstreakers knees are for? They seem to move but I can't find any reason for them.

    These are a great pair of figures.

    As others have said, I can see Wheeljack and Red Alert being produced from the same two figures also. Perhaps even some more niche ones like Tigertracks.

    Yah its an overall nicely solid pair of molds. I'd love to see the other car guys use them. Makes me really realllllly want to see IF do the Stunticons though.

    They did do Acidstorm as an exclusive, so I imagine a Tigertracks isn't out of the realm of possibilities.
