    Don't you feel the irony in other people (like the parts you quoted) making clear that your complaint was simply TOTALLY STUPID AND MISINFORMED FROM THE START??? :D :D :rolleyes:

    Just wna reiterate this point, thx for the contributions my dude! ... When we start breaking down MP reveals like the Zapruder film, I get so pumped ... the arcane references to toy details, toon discrepancies, AKOM shittiness, I get that nostalgia heroin rush and I just want the train to keep on chugging ... :)

    Whoa hohoho! Relax! Don't get paranoid. Did I call you ignorant or something? Because I'm expressing my opinion about a figure, a silly TOY and you are using adjectives ON PEOPLE, so please have respect and be careful.
    Will the figure be released with yellow plastic or will they use yellow paint? I don't really know, I honestly have just started collecting masterpieces 2 years ago, max.
    I didn't know that masterpiece figures are often displayed with melting paint, so sorry I hurt your delicate feelings about a toy LOL!
    I hope this figure is released in yellow plastic, because although MP-36 is an exceptional and truly remarkable figure (which I own), the final results on his paint are unfortunate.

    Sunstreaker's always been described as a narcissist with sociopathic tendencies and a notable contempt for humans to boot. In fact, the only human he seems to like is Chip Chase. The rest of humanity can just go die in a fire, for all he cares. He's also not 100% sold on the Autobots' cause against the Decepticons, if I recall correctly, so his loyalty is somewhat questionable (unlike his brother Sideswipe). In the IDW comics, he even betrays the Autobots after being turned by Starscream. Talk about a complicated "good guy". :D

    Thanks @Sam and @Timesynch. Knowing TT I wouldn't doubt that description came into deciding the emotive qualities of the face sculpt.

    When someone doesn't know something, he's ignorant in that regard.
    Did you know that TT (as anybody else ...) usually exposes hand painted protos in show and fairs?
    From you silly joke about "melting paint", wich you made just to mock the figure and flame, i'd say you don't.
    So yes, you're ignorant in that regard.
    If thruth hurts you, that's your problem sadly...

    Sunstreaker is the cold warrior, often into himself more than others. His eyes are fine.

    I am a bit late to the party, but here is my set of pictures from the Tokyo Toy Show.

    (and now I know how difficult it is to make useable pictures at these events)

    Thanks @Type-R

    I think his feet will be die-cast. The pelvis has a nice workaround for an ab crunch too similar to wheeljack.

    Looks like we have confirmation of the release date of late December now.

    Seems so but...

    Look at this photo:

    [​IMG]

    What the heck is going on with the buttflap?

    It's attached to one of sides of the legs? It's moving with them, rather than with the middle pelvis piece.

    EDIT: Ah I see it has it's own hinge, so it can move like that (that's how hood opens, too)

    I know they're referencing a scene from the MTMTE 3-parter but seeing it on the actual toy, it just looks lewd.

    Nice! I'm really surprised Lamborghini agreed to chrome spoilers. Looks out of place in "real" car mode. If displayed in alt mode I'm going to have it in modified car mode anyways so doesn't really matter to me. Just saying.
