    So, this is the final robot mode design. This time I didn't include the alt mode, which is a yellow Lamborghini Murciélago. I doubt I'll be drawing a separate vehicle mode pic in addition to this, unless I can work it into the "in action" piece I'm planning to do. That one I will upload here as well.

    EDIT: I said I'd do an in action piece, but unfortunately it never made further progress from the sketch I did in the beginning of July. So, that's the thing I'm uploading anyway for you to see. That way it won't go completely to waste. ;) 

    To view the picture in full size, see it on Deviantart or view the attachment.

    Sunstreaker is a hand-to-hand brawler. He's small, and as frustrating it is to his ego, he has enough sense to use it in his advantage in battle. He knows where to strike, and has the strength to strike hard. His armor is tough, and he can take a lot of pounding before finally going down - down he eventually must go, before he's not known to back down from battle. He loves a good fight and really prefers to handle things up close and personally, was the opponent merely a drone or a Decepticon size of a house. Sunstreaker's undeniable skill and strength somewhat warp his image of his own importance, and that's why at times he may come across as slightly egotistical and overly dramatic.

    In my personal movie universe Sunstreaker is not Sideswipe's brother. Partly because the roles for Autobot twins are already taken, partly because Sideswipe and Sunstreaker would both rather work alone. But together the two would make a damn good team - speed and strength combined.

    I was suggested to give him wheel feet to go with Sideswipe, but I want to stay true to my original design for most part. The tires give his upper body more mass and sorta look like muscles (I know they don't, but sort of!). That's also why I kept the most kibble in his arms and back. I wanted to keep the tighter fit of his legs' armor plating to imitate the solid look of wrestling boots. Kicking is also easier with real feet.

    Nice, I don't think I've ever seen a TF Car design before with the body made up of the front of the car on top of the back. I'd love to see how he'd transform.

    Wow, there are some REALLY good designs coming out of this contest. TFW should have these more often.

    I like how you used the doors for mass on his arms. Really original design.

    The We-R-84 plate from the Universe figure is a nice touch.

    I also agree that the front of the car over the truck/back of the car forming the chest is very interesting.

    If you had a transformation gif or artwork, that would be awesome. I love the art you've posted, most definitely.

    That's brilliant! While I love them as brothers, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, but it's even better when they combine their strength and speed. Sunny's design is perfect!
