    Oof, that's a lot of gaps on Sunstreaker. Might be time to track down the classics version. Trailbreaker looks pretty good though.

    Really wish Sunstreaker had a spoiler in alt. mode, but otherwise both him and Trailbreaker look pretty good.

    So Sunstreaker looks to share a few parts with Wheeljack. It looks like they Pulled a RTS Tracks and retooled the back of Wheeljack’s legs to be the front of Sunstreakers.

    Oh, happy days! I'm glad I got rid of that atrocious Generations Trailcutter a few months ago. This is the figure of him I want. Sunstreaker looks awesome too, but I hope he can be retooled into Sideswipe and Red Alert. I like the lambos in my collection to share the same mold.

    Damn they both look great. I can’t even tell if Sunstreaker’s actually a retool of anybody. It shares the windshield engineering from Wheeljack, but I don’t see any shared parts.

    What's obvious to one isn't necessarily obvious to another. :< Which parts do you see on Sunstreaker that Wheeljack also has?

    But why? Sunstreaker looks nothing like Sideswipe and Red Alert. This is why bots like Cordon & Tigertrack get ignored. T_T

    Both look ok. I think I like trailcutter better but ima still buy this. Sunstreaker is eh. He doesn’t look as streamlined as the character normally is. Maybe better pics...

    This again? Are you the same clueless fan who claimed Runamuck was a retool of Cliffjumper? :rolleyes:

    Bought. Sure there will be a 3rd part spoiler upgrade for Sunstreaker.

    Sunstreaker looks great. Trailbreaker too. Really surprised that trailbreaker has the hoist panels behind his arm still though, really thought that would be remolded.

    Really liking the look of Sunstreaker's vehicle mode minus the weapon, but man I gotta admit his robot mode looks kinda shit.

    Trailbreaker is looking aces though and I look forward to getting him

    Sunstreaker is nice but I still cannot get on with the capes on Trailbreaker.

    Ok maybe I should have worded it better.

    They definitely share engineering as for specific parts that they look to share are just the internal shoulder joints. Every thing else seems new. So I guess you can call it a new mold.
