    And inbetween all that we comment how surprised we are about how much everyone has either said:
    1) I like it.
    2) I don't like it.
    3) I'm in.
    4) Easy pass.
    5) Preordered!, or
    6) Canceled.
    And repeat to an additional 60+ pages.

    Eternal and shiny.

    Better than Omni's but I'm not totally sold yet. Looks-wise, his crotch is the biggest problem area for me; specifically the wide hips. Frankly, the dealbreaker here is the price. I was expecting it to be high given BC's previous pricing and they certainly didn't "disappoint". If this were cheaper I could live with wide hips, clown shoes et al. But for the price it is ... I dunno. KIV I guess.

    Chest will have clear parts, won't be painted.

    This is a prototype - mentions it is quite loose. To be expected. The final result will be much cleaner and tighter than it already is, in this stage.

    Feet will look better/tighter/streamlined on the test shot.

    Face is very handsome (definite plus for Sunny!!).

    Looks toon accurate without being too plain looking.

    Says it will be fully painted and offer chrome (!!!!) versions. Fucking beautiful.

    Can. Not. Wait. Love all the updates BC gives us on Facebook also - they answer a lot of questions when they can and are super friendly. Love this company.

    An addendum to my earlier comment:

    The grey proto doesn't quite match the first drawing we saw, car-wise. The actual figure is indeed the "correct" model of Countach, with the very rare early-style fender arches.

    I prefer a fake windshield/roof to a windshield that hangs around the knees.

    Someone had mentioned resisting the urge to make boob jokes. I just gave you an opening.

    Forearms made thinner to balance out legs, and feet lined up with legs

    I'd actually be okay with the forearms being a little slimmer, based on that digibash. Dunno if it would affect the vehicle mode in any way though.

    I'm having a hard time figuring why I like this so much. Is it because Wardog impressed me so much or is this truly a great mold....

    time will tell.

    Looks like my collection of Sunstreakers will be tripling from 3 (Asterisk, Universe, Alternators) to 6. Joining those three will be Omnis' Spin Out, BC's SunSurge and whenever Takara gets around to releasing their Sunstreaker (preferably while we're all still relatively young).:)

    Interested for sure. The chest (even with clear plastic windows) looks sloppy with weird hinges right there. If you gonna make a cheat like that, at least make it clean. This is Masterpiece were talking about. Badcube fix it.

    My opinion, don't hate. Not trying to play with anyone's emotions. Relax!! Sad I have to say that.
