    Cheers man!

    Cheers dude :) 

    Thanks man, I've just put them in my display and noticed Sideswipe's knees were bent slightly, here he is stood normally with a peek at my next (nearly complete) project and yes, I need to dust! lol:

    He doesn't look that bad really. I was gonna look at extending his waist a bit but the commissioner is happy with Sunny being a bit taller due to him being.....well.....Sunstreaker.....

    The reason why Sunny is taller is the Countach hooded feet are built up around the normal Tracks feet whereas Sideswipe never had any of that.

    Love how Sunstreaker turned out sooooo much. He looks perfect and I can't wait to have him and his brother displayed on my bookcase. :D

    GORGEOUS! How is is that you have done Sunstreaker so much more justice then Hasbro and TT combined??? I mean this is seriously what the classic twins should have been in robot mode.

    As always, love your work!!

    I know! HasTak should take a page from TigerBlade's book. If they did, we'd see some truly amazing figures.

    Seriously! I mean... look at the Sunstreaker toys, he is always getting the short end. It's a hit or miss with HasTak. Sideswipe is usually a hit while Sunstreaker not so much.

    Classics was the best official Sunny toy thus far. (MP Sunny should be amazing if they do it right) I don't really count the ALTs because the alt modes were nto meant for the twins they just got stuck with it.

    But yeah, Tigerblades customs always do the characters Justice and look AWESOME!

    Indeed. Sunny always gets shafted, not just toy-wise, but media-wise, too.

    Classics was a good toy, but Sunstreaker has such a unique G1 mold and I really wished they would have utilized some of that design. He was more or less a copy of Sideswipe with a new head and a slightly altered transformation.

    That's why I'm so glad Tigerblade was willing to take on my commissions. Now I have the Sunstreaker toy I've been wanting, since who knows when we'll be getting an MP version and if that will even be as amazing as we're all hoping. ^__^

    Great work bud. I bet Sunstreaker will look the perfect scale next to MP-12.
