    With Prime 3.0? I think too much time has went by and he's starting to show his age. I wonder if this converstion will pop up when Blaster is finally revealed. I wish they would make knocking the rest of the diaclones out a priority so once they're done, they're done unless they decide to revisting someone later on in the future

    I think we'll see a MP-12+ before we ever see an entirely new mold. Besides, I get the impression that now that Megatron has been fixed Takara seems far more interested in moving forward rather than back now.

    So for those keeping score, here's where we're at on MP '84 catalog completion:
    Minicars: 1/6
    Cars: 7/11
    Commander: 1/1
    Cassettes: 5/5
    Planes: 3/3
    Communicator: 1/1
    Leader: 1/1
    only 9 to go before Masterpiece never has to think about 1984 ever again.

    I could see him. I was trying to think of all the Autobots he was with Prowl,Ratchet,Bumblebee,Jazz & Trailbreaker. But I really couldn't think of any but Ratchet but of chourse Ratchet has already been done. So I couldn't think of anyone else. Hmm how about Powerglide. I know alot of time he kept working on him. Like in the one episo Micobots or The Girl who love Powerglide. Just a though.

    I nearly thought reveals like Sunstreaker or Trailbreaker wouldn't be a big deal for me. I was wrong.

    Looking good, as usual for Sunstreaker.

    Which is interesting considering how many other paint details DON'T match a real Countach. Heck, even MP Sideswipe doesn't match his real-world counterpart in several ways (including his spoiler---should have black support pylons), including a few I'm sure Takara was simply unaware of.

    So I find it hard to believe that NOW Lamborghini cares about realistic spoiler color, and continues to ignore everything else. (And now lets even more obvious things like no black window framing)

    And this is also why so many of Bluestreak's stickers have a blue background---they're supposed to blend in. But on a silver car, you get an odd effect. (Like the "TURBO" stickers)

    I really like that MP Sunstreaker has the correct alt mode, I was never a fan of the deformed look of the toy or toon. The head could use more detail but I will wait until I see the final version. All up it's a great looking MP.

    In robot form I think he will look good next to MP12 Sideswipe. These two characters always looked different in the toy and then the toon and I like that this is reflected in the MP.

    Just when I was thinking I'm nearly done with G1 season 1 characters in MP scale thanks to 3P stand-ins. Well, this is a definite pickup seeing as sunstreaker was one of the first (if not the first) transformers I got when I was a kid.

    Wait... 23 pages of comments about this already? And the announcement was just over 6 hours ago?!?!?

    Probably after Prime 3.0. ;)  But seriously, look at those side-by-side pictures. Sideswipe looks twice the breadth of Sunstreaker, I mean, he's not supposed to be the fat twin, you know? And his face... Don't get me wrong, I love the MP-12 mold, but I don't think I can display these guys together once Sunstreaker's in hand.

    And whaddaya mean, "make knocking the rest of the diaclones out a priority"? They've done nothing but Diaclone molds since the line started, barring the occasional A-lister and Movie and now Beast Wars characters.

    Jeezus H Christ. Nobody else cares if spoiler support struts were supposed to be black... the MP line is (now for sure) about accuracy to the G1 toon source material. If you want a 100% accurate to real world car Lambo, there is a ton of collectible model cars.

    You know, I'm surprised. You'd think by now Takara would've made Sideswipe's rocket pack, and include it with Sunstreaker so his brother can have his last major component.

    Thanks for the translation, Emperor! So I guess that confirms this is the long awaited character coming at the end of the year TT referred to? Fine by me!
