    Nice catch! Might just be me, but those pics don't look all that great. Looks more Alt than MP..

    The big main gap along the top of the door seems reduced in car mode compared to earlier pics. Though the big panel right below the NACA duct (big black triangle) seems to stick out a bit.

    Wonder how much of it is QC, and how much is simply "how carefully it was transformed".

    I'm torn on him. On the one hand with the cost I wouldnt want him to be deluxe size, but on the other I'd want him to fit in with the CHUGs I currently have with my MP-10.

    The only thing that bothers me is that his arms just don't fit the the girth of his chest. They're too small.

    Looks pretty good. First pics I've seen showing his inner calf. Hollow but not too bad.

    Looks good, but that is one giant ass Autobot symbol on his chest. If they dialed it back maybe 25%, it'd look a little better. Sideswipe posing like Capt'n Morgan is nice though. XD

    Not sure if joking or serious, but a Takara rep has gone on record saying they realize Sunstreaker is a very different mold and has a very different transformation than his bro Sideswipe. It can be taken from this that Takara won't pull a Classics move (as clever as that switcheroo engineering was during its time) and just repaint the Lambor mold yellow (and with a new head) and call it Sunstreaker.

    Looks absolutely amazing! It seems the plastic is actually painted in red which looks great, although it's a nightmare for QC. Regardless, I hope Hasbro pursues the rights to distribute this here, as it looks spectacular. Just not 80 dollars spectacular considering it's the size of a large deluxe.

    Yeah, the chest should have compressed a bit.
