    After getting him in hand, BBM Concept Sunstreaker isn't that bad of a figure, being fun to transform into his alt mode! His deco, especially with that orange, leaves something to be desired, though...

    However, I felt like he worked better as an incarnation of a certain Autobot marksman, that being the self-centered Sureshot, especially in his colours and his windshield, and that his double dual-barrelled blasters were a dead ringer for his Targetmaster partner, Spoilsport!

    Luckily, I was able to give him his partner proper representation, after I somehow managed to find some Aimlesses in a Kidstuff (even though it's been about what, 5 years since Siege? Damn, it's been a while...)

    And you don't stop, Sureshot, go out to the parking lot.
    Nice idea

    This works so much better as Sureshot! I'm not a customizer, but if I ever get BBM Sunstreaker I'm doing this.

    Hmmm, this mold would also work as Transtech Cheetor.

    I don't know why, but Gateway's colours make the mold look a bit taller, at least in my eyes.

    I think it's because of the way his shoulder pads are posed, here was an earlier pic of the duo

    Oh, funnily enough, that was one of my first ideas for this mold, but then I wanted to try out a Sureshot, since I wanted to use the yellow already on the figure, and his Legacy listing either got pushed back or cancelled

    Ha true, I just want to see what can be used a base for a pointblank custom since his design is so unique

    Definitely! I'd try it myself, but then I'd have made two out of three of the Targetmaster trio from one mold...

    Fantastic stuff, here's hoping the upcoming mainline Sureshot's gonna be a hit rather than a miss. Have a huge soft spot for the post '86 G1 guys, though Legacy Pointblank just didn't do it for me.
