    Here my latest custom MP-12 SUNSTREAKER using Tigertrack (Sideswipe as base):

    This project started as A TigerTrack diaclone of Sideswipe: I made the additional steps for TigerTrack to have the option to turn in to Sunstreaker:
    The way that TigerTrack turn into Sunstreaker is very simple: It has being given add on pieces from a model kit ; this allowed these parts to be clip on to TigerTracks. They clip on pieces go directly into TigerTRack feet and chest as well for his intakes backpack: As well those additional pieces new ball joint has being added to both head to be easy remove or interchangeable. Every piece has being taken apart and match to make Sunstreaker or Tigertrack that best they can be.

    Thank you for everyone for stopping by and viewing

    Very nice. It would be nice if Takara/Tommy could remold sideswipe into sunstreaker and keep an actual transformation. This is a real fun idea though, and paint and execution look great.

    Do you have alt mode screenshots for Streaker? How about a quick transform video? This looks really neat.

    Great paint work as always!

    I like it better as TigerTracks to be honest, but Streaker ain't lookin too shabby.

    Oh please no. Sunstreaker needs his own mold.

    Sunny needs a small Autobot badge on his right foot but apart from that I'm really digging it. Works better than I expected it would.

    Love the shot of all the repaints together too.

    Really love it as Sunstreraker. The head has a really aggressive look to it as well.

    I'm guessing this will go for at least $3-400. I'm trying to bid on it. :)

    My only complaint: Badge overkill! Alt mode in particular! I'm pretty sure heis an Autobot. :) 

    Amazing otherwise. The Sunstreaker cheat is killer. Especially his Lambo shoes!

    I think I like it as Tigertracks better. The Sunstreaker is nice, but I was (unrealistically) hoping that you took MP-12 and re-engineered it completely to mimic a Sunstreaker transformation. I don't think it's impossible, but it'd be difficult nonetheless.

    Incredible. Even just as the straight repaint it's beautiful work.
