    Does anyone feel like sunstreaker was always a bit faded? He's one of my favourites, and i believe many people crave the G1 toy but it seems like there isnt much credit for him, i dont even remember his participation in the series, i'd sure love to see him masterpieced

    Don't really know. I've honestly never seen one in person, though pictures that I have seen always show him a nice yellow (not too bright, yet not too dull). Personally, I'm waiting till the Classics 2.0 (Universe) figure comes out next year :thumb .

    Yeah, he was really only around when they needed a snappy line. Never noticed that until now.

    Sunstreaker has only been released twice, right? (G1 and Alt?) I agree, we need more Sunstreaker.

    I'm sorry, but, when I read faded I instantly thought color. It's not like I posted anything completely off topic, or insulted the guy for no reason.

    I couldn't agree more. Aside from Punch/Counterpunch, this was the one character that realized the least of his potential - though admittedly, scenarios where he would be at his best would probably not be appropriate for kids.

    Well, if you don't count the BotCon version (repaint of RiD Prowl), those are the only toys he's ever gotten, yes. By "release," we might also have to mention the mail-order version in the later part of G1 and the Euro Classics reissue of the early '90s, but that's getting pretty nitpicky....

    I have no idea if it's real or not... I would assume it is... Just google "Rapist Search"

    Poor old Sunstreaker, always getting the shaft. He got cut in half by Shockwave early on in the Marvel comic, and didn't appear (as functional) for years.

    I did. It sounded like he was talking about both the toy, and the show versions of him, so I decided to post about the one that I knew at least a little about, the toy, as I've only ever seen the first 3 episodes and the '86 movie of G1.

    Faded would be referring to the color of the toy or character art. Poor choice of words from the original poster. I thought the very same thing...

    True, but his actual post mentioned nothing even remotely near coloring.

    I'm guessing that Portuguese is perhaps his first language rather than English, so I think we can cut him some slack.
