    Yeah it's pretty crappy to not include those. For the price, shouldn't this come w all the goodies? I'll gladly give up Chip. I thought a Masterpiece was supposed to be the ultimate version of this character.

    I love MP Sunstreaker I think it's the best carbot yet, but including the toy head and he toon head should be standard on any MP.

    Thanks for the replies. As much as I'm dying to transform this beautiful bastard STAT, I think I'm gonna apply a coat or two just as a preventative to weather transformations. I've got a few micro scratches just out of the box, as I'm sure is the norm, but an exotic supercar pretty boy like SS should look as pristine as possible. I don't think he'd have it any other way. ;)

    This --^ I won't go so far as to say I'd give up Chip (Sunsurge came with all of the goodies AND Chip, so why not), but I totally agree for this price he should have come with the hand cannon. Even Spinout came with the hand cannon!

    I know Takara will probably get to those accessories eventually, but again this price screams premium and the accessories this time out do not say premium to me.

    Got Sunny in the mail last night. Didn't have time to transform him, but I did take a few shots with other car bots.

    In its defense, Megs is a gun, it's gotta be more involved and complicated as far as transforming it. And even then, it is challenging but very clever.

    Agreed on what TT does nowadays is really putting 3P to shame. I USED to think FT dinos are as best as we'll get, or even their Skyfire. But I just know that once TT does their versions, they'll go on ebay the same day a silhouette of the MP is shown. Hell, probably before that so that their value doesn't plummet.

    I'm actually contemplating selling my entire 3P collection before February and going entirely official unless something really great comes along. Those FT Aerialbots look nice, but gotta wait and see them not fucking up their transformation.

    Then I'll wait for KO as I'm not re-buying this mold simply to get another deco that includes the cannon(s). Not at this price. However I'll gladly pay $30 for a repaint in order to get the hand cannon.

    I doubt there will be a 39+ since he already has a toon deco. My guess is that he will come with a red or police sunstreaker

    There will obviously not be an MP-39+.

    Just like toy-accurate shoulder cannons for Wheeljack came with Exhaust, and toy accurate shoulder cannons for Prowl came with MP-18B, a toy-accurate face and maybe hand launchers is likely to come with a Sunstreaker repaint.

    Has anybody at all tried to pull out his hands to see if they can be replaced with hand-cannons? Apparently Cheetor's hands are removeable, still wondering if the same is true for Sunstreaker.

    I don't think so not the way his hand/arm is designed. If there's a missile it will have to be on an attachment that fits over his hands.
