    Looks good. A few minor nitpicks, but mostly I like it.

    Totally fine with the alteration to the car mode, and the addition of a "real car" mode to (presumably) appease Lamborghini's legal department.

    Can't wait for the Diaclone repaints.

    I love that the gun stores in the leg, but I agree, it looks a little dinky.

    Hot damn that looks good!

    I see the turbos can come off for altmode; probably a Lambo mandate. I just hope they don't have to come off for transformation.

    I think it's definitely better than sunsurge but maybe not enough to make me double dip if i already had the 3p one. Luckily, I do not.

    I don't think they come off, I think they fold away. They're attached to detailed yellow panels that they wouldn't have to be if they just plugged off and on.

    So, yeah, didn't saw that one coming. And it's great. Direct colored reveal and all, he seems to be rather nice, maks accesories (awesome!)... I'm pretty very happy with that twist.
    And that's coming from someone who has Sunsurge and love him. Yes, that's something possible.

    Will he hand over the crown ?

    OK, like some others, not crazy about the head.
    And I still think it's dumb to not supply a toon head and a toy head for anything that has that option. Bumblebee got his (much cooler) toy-based battle mask, Tracks got screwed by only offering it with Loudpedal. Sign. Going full toon all the time is tough of us weirdos who generally like the designs for the toy head better. Why not have both??

    I sure hope so. If not in the interest of making a toy feature available for an MP, then just in the interest of making it a cool toy with fun stuff.

    Still, looks very posable, looks cool, alt mode is nice, body proportions are.... ok. I will have to see a profile shot to see how much of a backpack he's got goin on, because I don't want another Hot Rod situation.

    If it includes a toy head I'll have to amend that "pretty good" into an "excellent!"

    Finally!  Sunstreaker was my first Transformer as a kid. Gotta criticize the head sculpt though. The ears remind me of a Tele Tubby.

    I'm pleased it doesn't have the stupid red shoulder detailing.

    That shit was never cool
