    Since the G1 Sunstreaker toy was intended to be Sideswipe and the Sideswipe toy was intended to be Sunstreaker before they got switched somewhere in the development stage, it got me thinking. When Takara does MP Sunstreaker, would you want them to give him the rocket pack that would form out of his engine? Why or why not?

    As long as it looks convincing why not.

    I say no, because that isn't something that the original came with. They should stick with the things that the figures originally came with.

    To be honest, I would have thought TT would have given Sideswipe the jet pack before the pile drivers. I don't think Sunstreaker should have one though, even if he was originally intended to have one.

    Not gonna happen. It doesn't matter who was supposed to be who, what we do know is the MP line is pulling it's design/accessory nods from the cartoon. TBH I can't think of/remember anything he would/could come with......did he ever use that hand/missile thing he has on the G1 toy in the cartoon?

    Or how about a mask? :D

    We're talking about Sunstreaker here, not Sideswipe.

    Yea, Sunstreaker did use his hand missile ONCE, and only once. In the episode where the cons found Atlantis. He was under water when he was used it.

    Haha, yeah I noticed that later after I posted it. I fixed the post. That will teach me to read more carefully before I post.

    No to this statement please. If this had happened MP Rodimus wouldn't have a matrix, MP Optimus wouldn't have the matrix, spike, energon axe. Skywarp no Archeville. Starscream no coronation and crown, grimlock no crown, etc. The addon accessories, as long as they are viable for that character, have been a lot of fun and damn well worth having with them, even if they are a bid odd like Archeville.

    Ok, so maybe not exactly what the original figures came with, but accessories that make sense for the character being portrayed.

    Well... seeing as Sunstreaker doesn't really have anything that could be an exclusive it MIGHT be cool if an exclusive had Sideswipes jet pack with it since Sideswipe didn't get his.

    Sunstreaker just doesn't have anything that could be an exclusive accessory.

    Exactly.

    This is sad but true. I doubt we'll see the jetpack from Takara but maybe, with some hope, and nicely chromed up 3rd party one?! :D

    How about a hand mirror to celebrate his vanity.

    No, because while that was the case, Sunstreaker has never been shown to have one, least of all in G1.

    Nope, Sunstreaker should only have extras that was shown in the G1 toon. But it would be cool if they included a rocket pack that could fit on his brother.

    Well, people are almost evenly divided on this so far. Very interesting.

    I'd personally like it if he came with the jetpack, if only to acknowledge Bob Budiansky's original intent for the character. And, as others have said, there aren't a lot of accessories he could come with (though the alien mask would be killer).

    Had to say no on this one.. I wouldn't find it convincing for Sunstreaker to have a jetpack. Now if they could give us a (fantastically designed) transforming head (that didn't suffer in robot mode) I would be all over that. Also, Sideswipe had the jetpack. And who knows, they might toss the jetpack in without our knowing, and who knows, it could also be compatible with MP-10. But if they do give Sunstreaker a jetpack, I'll definitely place it on Sideswipe...
