    final alt mode with engine

    Here is alt mode sunstreaker with different angles(and yes his engine is missing)Very nice looking with great detail.I will get bot mode up later tonight.He does have a nice transformation sequence with a very g1 style upperbody transformation.

    bot mode pics.Arms are under the hood in alt mode and his head is inside his chest.Spinning the windshield makes the head pop up and the horns come out of his head.He is surprisingly posable and his feet are on ball joints.

    I guess I got 2 questions; where (if anywhere) does the gun stash in vehicle mode? And, how does the alternate/Sideswipe transform work?

    Cool. I really like the shade of yellow they chose for him, and I like how he and Starscream look when compared to each other. The head thing sounds interesting. Can't wait to see that in a video review, as I'm really curious as how that looks in person.

    how does it look, and transform, into classics "sideswipe?" does it do it well? or is it an after thought? or what?

    um, how could it be an afterthought when the sideswipe transformation is the ORIGINAL transformation this mold was designed with?

    Damn, that guy is so nice.

    I mean, I wanted the first Classics releases... but not as badly as I want these ones. Not nearly as badly. I guess I have a weakness for the 84 cars. Mirage is probably my favorite Classics 1.0.

    I'm really liking this guy. Thanks a ton for the pics.

    He and Octankor are the only one's I'll be getting. Sunstreaker gives me that Mirage vide. I loved Mirage as he was probably the best deluxe since a long time before.If only his feet weren't so damn loose.

    I wish the yellow plastic didn't look so cheap. I might have to give him a new paint job when I get him.

    Sunstreaker looks really good. I like the color's that they chose and the chest spinning to reveal the head sounds cool.
    I really wish they'd bring these out already!

    This is what Sunstreaker's Alt/BT should have looked like, not just a Viper repaint.....
