    That would have been cool just as a toy reference. I like it on Inferno. But he actually used it in the show. Still would have liked it though. I think the way the hands are done restricts an attachment.

    thats what made me think of it looking at inferno and grapple done with the mushroom peg , would have looked superb on an already superb looking figure

    They are probably saving that for one of the repaints if the datsuns, wheeljack, tracks, optimus primal are anything to go by (ie. toy accessories for repaints)

    Look who finally finished their impromptu tour of the West Coast!
    MP39.jpg

    I've literally just had time to come home, transform him, transfer spare parts to a designated baggie, and take this lone photo. Company dinner, so late night tonight. Initial reaction, it's a great figure! The transformation was actually pretty fun, and even a tired, ham-handed me was able to easily transform him in the span of about 20 minutes give or take a few minutes of looking at the colored sections of the instructions, plus the local Japanese grocery ad used to pad the box. Definitely worth the wait. Paint has a few minor chips in it, not like MP-36 and probably not something most people would notice, but you practically have to put the figure right up to your face to notice him. Maybe I'll get time to play around with him more tomorrow after work.

    Well MP-39 has arrived but im going to sell it on without opening it. Bot mode does look really good and car mode is quite acceptable, but the transformation is the sticking point for me.

    I do miss the Hasui-era transformations which imo were simple & intuitive. Perhaps I'll just recollect all his designs and call it a day.

    Wait - so you are selling it because the transformation is not simple or intuitive, but you have yet to actually transform it yourself?

    The Transformation is really not that bad, I'd say to give it a try, Emgo is a good guide to watch especially on this one, I know some don't like him but I do think he does a good job of explaining it.

    The online vids show me all I need to see to know i probably wont enjoy it, besides if i take the chance and open it but dont like it then the redale value has dropped significantly hasn't it?

    Better not to risk it and just sell.

    Yup. I’d just sell it if you’re worried about resale value

    Got my AmazonJP Sunstreaker today, and holy shit, the vehicle mode is beautiful! And I will admit that I'm the idiot who totally got the size of this figure wrong. I seriously can't believe how great Sunstreaker's alt mode looks, mine has barely any gaps and rolls on all four tires, and looks absolutely gorgeous. I can't believe how crappy they made this thing look in all those magazine pics, now having him next to MP-12, he destroys MP-12's alt mode. I can barely see the seems on 39, it looks like I have a model car(MP39) sitting next to a transformer(MP12).

    I haven't got a chance to transform him yet, but I might wait a day or two to get my other 2 from AE to transform one or two of them, cause the one I have right now has pretty much no gaps and just looks to perfect to transform right now. So glad I decided to keep my AmazonJP preorder for a 3rd Sunstreaker, this thing is amazing!

    Mine has finally been delivered. I'm just stuck at work so I'll have to wait just a little longer.
