    It's just a shame he's scheduled to arrive late March and not early March, because he would be an awesome birthday gift.

    Blaze is not suppose to replace or be Sideswipe. It is a red Diaclone Sunstreaker. Just like how TT released Tigertrack, which is a yellow Diaclone Sideswipe. Makes perfect sense.

    Someone had a good idea on how to incorporate the siren lights. Have the alt mode lights attached to the super tuning engine (or whatever its called) and the lights would just rest on top of the roof or attach via a hole/peg. You can fold away the lights in bot mode as you fold away the whole super tuning engine part. Have a smaller faux siren attached to the faux chest. I don't remember how much clearance there is. Might need to make the faux sirens pretty flat if there isn't much clearance.

    I really like it (and the price) but just cannot prioritize picking a third party Red Sunstreaker over the several other MP's I want more (both official and unofficial).

    That's kinda where I am. Too much stuff coming out soon, plus some others I need to catch up on/finish. I like the Sunsurge mold, and it would help fill out my growing Diaclone ranks, but just don't have the $ for it now. It's way down on my priority list.

    I'm surprised at the amount of flack being given about this. Not just here but on BCs facebook etc. I have no interest in the hoards of Dinobots coming out. But I don't complain about it.

    Not really seeing any flack here, just a bunch of people saying it's nice but they'll pass on this one and how they had hoped this would be Cliffjumper.

    For some reason, I really like the yellow eyes.

    Agreed. Diaclone are not just repaints, they are from a different continuity. Which actually makes them even more exciting and easily cool.

    Man, bad cube didn't mess around did they... it's only been out few months and SS already got his predecessor.

    Those days of waiting for a year to get a repaint are over. Datsuns, Tracks-Road Rage, Ironhide-Ratchet.....TT are milking their molds faster than ever. And the sad thing is the later releases most often improve on the overall QC of the mold. So I expect Blaze to be flawless in the QC dept.

    I wish they would include a red head with him. I understand the Diaclone came with a yellow head but he would look so much better with a red one.

    Or they rush out a second run in a different colour to make more money.

    And they dont give two shits about the QC

    Sorry to counter your opinion, but I think you have too much faith in third party companies

    With a name like Sentinel Blaze, this could be an alternate version of Sentinel Prime, who never became a Prime.

    I was taking it as Sentinel meaning watchful guardian, instead of Warrior or whatever the other ranks or titles they gave their other releases, but hey head canon is what you decide.

    This guy was the first Transforming toy ever right? I think I asked this already but I can't find it anywhere in the thread, so I'm not sure

    I still don't like how this mold looks in bot mode, but I'm glad they're doin the Diaclone deco. Perhaps they'll do Copstreaker soon too.
    According to TF Wiki on their Diaclone page:
