    I found this knock off at Big Lots today. It was on pegs next to a gigantic Armada Prime minicon and KO G1 Prowl

    The boxart of the bot mode is there in the picture.

    It's not universe Sunstreaker, at least not the new one. If there's an old one I'm unaware of it could be that.

    edit: are you guys just saying sunstreaker beause it's yellow? because it also comes in blue

    from the side, it looks kind of like the body of sunstreaker, just a little less lamborghini-esque. the windshield is too small and we know it's not sunstreaker, i just said it looks like a sunstreaker...kinda. anyway, i was stupid not to look at it's boxart.

    ^ This. Seems like there are quite a number of these upsized minicon KOs but I've never seen any in person over here.

    That was one of the extra-articulated Minicons wasn't it?

    It's statements like that which cause the universe to implode. :p

    You know what that is? It's a Saleen S7. Can someone find a picture and post it on here so every can see what I'm talking about? There's no way that's Sunstreaker/Sideswipe because they're Lamborghini Gallardos.

    I'm not that familiar with minicons, but are the pieces of the star saber there? Because it would be really awesome to have a ginormous star saber!

    There are four jets. Unfortunately you can't form an entire star saber with them. There's basically two each of the "tip" and middle section, and no "hilt."
