    Considering this Autobot pack is all ‘84 carbots, and there’s what, 6 of them left to repaint? (with 2 being Voyagers)

    I don’t think we’ll see the same molds (Prowl / Bluestreak & Ironhide / Ratchet) in both packs, I expect one to be

    • Prowl (alive, with Siege head), Ironhide (also alive) and Mirage, while the other is
    • Bluestreak, Ratchet (also alive) & Sideswipe

    I could definitely see Huffer being thrown in as a repaint somewhere too mind, as the other minibots are either already in animation colours with blue windows (Studio Series ‘86 Brawn, Buzzworthy Cliffjumper & Legacy United Gears) or like Bumblebee, getting a new mold in Studio Series ‘86.

    There’s also 7 1985 carbots (with 2 of them being Voyagers too), so I could see Huffer maybe going with them for two 4 packs, both 1 Voyager & 3 Deluxes?

    I don’t see them doubling up on the same colours where possible, so if Huffer was here he’d likely be with Inferno instead of Grapple.
    • Tracks, Hoist, Inferno (& maybe Huffer?)
    • Skids, Smokescreen, Grapple & Red Alert in another.

    I've got an estimate of between 13th and 15th March from ID Toys and the current ship date on the Pulse site (UK version at least) is March 14th. A lot sooner than expected!

    I like how you can see they were still unable to correctly paint match the yellow.

    The Sunstreaker side by side comparisons are making me reconsider this getting this set now. I would still like to see a comparison with the current Kingdom Sideswipe figure before I make a final decision to buy though. Then again, the windshield is on the back of Sideswipe so it may not look out of place in robot mode next to this Sunstreaker.

    That is a huge improvement. I skipped Sunstreaker last go around because of that yellow mismatched roof. This new interation looks great.

    I find the black accents in alt mode just really oddly placed.

    This whole 5 pack is just a total mixed bag of better here and worse there trade offs for me.

    Wow! Sunstreaker has a 100% better deco and finally a consistent shade of yellow across the entire body! Hope this set ships early!

    Same here. I love Sunstreaker, but that original had the wrong color on the roof, and it looked atrocious. I'd love to hear the story of what went wrong, cuz Hasbro designers are usually meticulous: clearly a factory error that corporate told them to ignore...

    Cheddar or mustard?
    Yeah, this one I'll miss the clear plastic. YES, the colors were wrong that is obvious (and very strange they can't/won't match better), but they finally used it well to show tech greeble instead of folded up robot.

    The story was basically: Yellow is a hard color to match, we did the best we could.

    Much improved. Excited to finally get this guy and the rest.

    Just weird that the back of the vehicle will be randomly metallic instead of yellow.

    Also they specifically said it was during Covid, Mark mentioned with all the social distancing / working from home at the time they couldn’t see the samples properly in person until it was too late.

    I have the ER Sunstreaker and I really like the transparent windshield with the view underneath. It looks good to me.

    I hate the color mis-match. Enough to risk taking apart the whole figure, wiping it with thinner, and putting a new yellow coat on everything to get a match that HasTak wouldn't do? eep. Risky.

    They also still didn't give him a spoiler here.

    I’ll buy it because I’m an addict, but I’m not really bowled over here. Lose some good aspects from ER (under windshield greebling), get some new strange additions in this version (the black upper arm deco), and you get a figure that’s improved but leaves the door wide open for a 3rd “We really got it right this time! Seriously!” reissue for SS86. At least he has a gun this go round.

    My only issue is he\'s got two Autobot symbols in vehicle mode, don\'t know why.

    Sunstreaker has a better color matching than before I guess, but I still think the clear plastic on him was pretty well-implemented before.
