    The feet are bigger on this one, but what can you do? Potentially center them a little better, but the color shopped pics make them look less out of place.

    Of course if the feet look weird because the joints are sagging I bet he is going to gain some height once that is fixed. Wonder how he will compare to the other carbots then.

    This looks really good. Im assuming the ankles are intended to line up with the legs properly.

    Im a bit concerned about a gappy mid-drift under the bot's window chest and a well solidified rear in alt mode.

    Proper test shots will give a much better impression of what to expect.

    Over all Im pretty excited for this figure. Omni is an easy pass for me.

    Personally I would like 3Ps to just skip all the S1 carbots as I believe Takara will be producing them all at this point. The only possible question marks in my mind are Sunny and possibly Mirage.

    Will a Licensed Lambo allow for a non existent vehicle with an altered rear end?

    But would Takara have even bothered with Sideswipe if they couldnt produce his twin?! (Or is that what prompted a Tigertrack stand in release?!)

    So Im gonna hedge my bets and get this in case an official Sun Streaker isnt possible -of course pending the final product.

    My 2 cents.

    It looks pretty good but though the proportions in bot mode look a little wonky. Not sure if it's the camera angle. The fist look a little too big, arms too long, and head too small.

    Isn't he supposed to be a little taller than Sideswipe and Prowl?

    I'm not digging the prototype as much as the art that was previously revealed. The chest windows being painted rather than tinted clear plastic just kills it for me. As said by others those feet are not good and really stand out bad. Alt mode is okay looking, but seems a bit out of scale with the other MPs. Omnigonix is looking pretty good when compared.

    Okay looks good. Not 100% on the ankles looks like Annie Wilks from Misery got a hold of him.

    In the drawing, his door panels on the outer legs sit above the foot which is the hood. Are they sitting inside of it instead of above it because of loose joints or is that a difference between the drawing and prototype design. I still love it, just wondering.

    I know right? Having the fake chest means an accurate bot mode and being able to accomplish an accurate altmode.

    If the chest was the top of the car people would either bitch the bot mode wasn't accurate or that they copied omni's design. Then if they kept the chest as is and didn't have the alternate canopy it would result in a smaller altmode which would have people bitching about scale.

    Thanks. If someone wants to post them on their fb, that would be cool. I'm not a fb guy.

    Sunstreaker's extreme vanity has caused him to succumb to the pressures of looking beautiful despite him not getting any younger.

    imho, even if BC decides to use original windows as chest (like Omni), it wouldn't be so bad... MP-12 did it, results in fans nerd-raging as the chest too wide, now it's pretty acceptable, no?

    I can see the point why some cannot accept the fake-chest, because Sunstreaker's chest are his main identity (besides the ears / legs) which should NOT be compromised by using fake parts...
    But BC has taken the stance to be toon-accurate, albeit I'll view it as lazy engineering

    Anyway, there's always a chance TT doing it, so all is fine :D 

    p/s: I hope BC was really joking when they say they're not doing repaint of this guy...

    I love all the varied opinions between this or Spinout (or neither!). It really just shows how lucky we are as a fandom to have these options that really have no business existing (saying that thankfully, not as an insult to third parties). Personally, I still like BadCube's better, but most of the complaints I've seen against it are totally rational.
