    *sighs* "There's a commotion, I want to avoid it. I don't like confrontation." No thanks.

    The 3rd partiers come in and run their mouths and start stuff and the official fans are expected to just sit here and take it? I don't think so.
    Other side of the coin, the official fans come into the 3rd party section and decide to run their mouths as well. Are the 3rd partiers supposed to just sit there and take it? No.

    There's a thread for SunSurge, there's a thread for Sunstreaker. Both figures do the same thing, provide you a Masterpiece style Sunstreaker figure. Each side has a different view and a different take on the situation. It's fine to discuss what does and doesn't work on one figure that the other might do better or worse and vice versa. That's perfectly fine for discussion.

    When someone comes into the thread with something like "Sunstreaker sucks!" or "SunSurge blows balls!" simply to bring their knuckledragging opinion out as if it was fact and then walk away, it's not cool.

    One could excuse such behavior once or twice, but after a certain point, it needs to be addressed and people need to fight back against it. Both sides could ignore and move on if no one was being petty to begin with. These are toys and you look foolish when you attack someone because they chose one brand over another. When someone looks back on your life and see that that's what you've contributed to the world, they won't bury you with compassion and honor, they'll just throw your box of bones in the dirt and carry on with their lives.

    Don't be a ball of suck, people. That's what causes hatred.

    And it's always the same usual suspects.

    I think TT's Sunstreaker looks amazing.

    And I, based on personal experience of actually owing the thing, think that Sunsurge is an abomination. Not a fact, my opinion. It just gets stupid writing "IMO" after every sentence,


    If that is enough to ruin your day to the point of writing essays on a toy message board about morals, I don't know what to tell you.

    Is leg articulation something we are looking for in a wheelchair bound character?

    Anyway, we are clearly bereft of news when the discussion turns yet again to people who can't separate opinion from fact. Let's hope more news on MP's is coming soon.

    I think I can go without leg articulation on a chip figure :) 

    As far as people bringing up 3rdparty figures to compare, no problem with it when it's substantiated.
    Just not this my opinion is the only right opinion, or someone who feels that they need to defend their purchase to the point he/she starts to fight others who think otherwise.

    It's alright people, we can all think for ourselves and others think otherwise. It's aloud, no one is wrong here for liking what they do.

    Come to think of it, and I don't want to derail the attention from Sunstreaker too much, but what happened to Chip later in the cartoon series anyway?
    He was quite prominent, and we all know Spike got with Carly and they got Daniel. But what about poor Chip?

    Did he ever appear after season 2? Did the Autobots ever give him one of those spacesuits so he could walk again? Did he ever get a partner?
    Did he ever get over the fact that 3.5 diskettes were replaced by cd,s then dvd,s and then removable harddrives?
    Does he know about "the Cloud"?

    Some one tell me!

    Where is your imagination? Think of the amazing possibilities of a Chip Chase with articulated legs!

    - You can pose him on the ground and imagine him saying "Help! I've fallen, and I can't get up!"

    - You can lay him on his back and imagine he is taking a nap.

    - You can stand him up and imagine "It's a MIRACLE! I can walk again!"

    - You can even straighten his legs so that Megatron can hold him in his hand.

    AMAZING!

    Can't do that with MP Sunstreaker's included Chip figure. ;) 

    In any case, MP-39 Sunstreaker himself IS the main event, and that's all that really matters to me.

    Maybe he became a headmaster and is now Action Master Mainframe's head. :D 

    On a serious note tho, why don't we have more updates on MP Sunstreaker?!?! :confused:

    What more updates do we need? His release has been delayed by two weeks until the 28th December (which means those who ordered him from AE will have to wait for them to reopen in early 2017 to get him shipped out). He looks fucking awesome, we have great photos of him. The only thing left is maybe some shots of him displayed at some upcoming toy shows, but other than that we're just waiting for this glorious yellow bastard to be released!

    I'm not crazy about the MP humans, but I think the little Chip Chase will look cool next to the original G1 Autobots for sure.

    More pics would be nice. Has there been any of him in alt mode next to Side Swipe's alt mode? Or did I miss them?

    I generally toss all the human figures into a junk drawer and forget about them.

    Amazon JP is still the only site I've seen that lists a 2 week delay on Sunny. They're also the only ones saying Roddy was moved up to December. I asked HLJ about Roddy and they said he was still a February release.

    As I said in another thread, until I see other sites (or Figure King) listing Roddy as a December release, I'm putting zero stock into Amazon JP's listings for Roddy or Sunny.

    Amazon jp are always the first to get info on release date changes. Once they change a date it's taken up to a few months in the past for the rest to follow suit.
