    If you're afraid you might break or damage your Masterpieces, then why do you transform all of them? :p :D

    I think Inferno has a great alt mode. My friend does have paint chipping on his Sunstreaker, tho

    I never said that I transform them. Like I said to rendsora, I never have taken them out of the packages. I have opened some of them to look at them and then I put them back inside the box.

    He's poking fun at your unintentional double-negative.

    Does anyone else have “specks”/ tiny dots on their chrome. I didn’t notice it at first, but after a couple of transformations I did

    So half the year has gone by and no G1 follow up to this fellow? I was so hopeful there were more to come of this quality.

    Meanie!!!:p 
    Honestly, Im waiting to see when BW Megatron drops. The old Takara we would look at a Dec-Feb window. Somehow I have a feeling we'll get a April release meaning half the year will probably be gone off of 2 releases.

    Please read my previous reply again, especially where I quoted you. "Never... none", so you wrote: "always... all". :p

    What’s with the bicep flexing in the original toon? Was that his trademark or something?

    Wonder why there is any discrepancy at all between the lambo brother MPs since they presumably started with the car manufacturer's CAD files

    Woo hoo just got a used MP Sunstreaker..but I'm afraid to transform him.

    I'm tempted but afraid he'll crumble to pieces like my 3P Alien Attack El-cid (Bayformers Prime) lol. :p

    Really late to the party but I just got this guy. Thought I broke the windshield transforming him to robot mode but it just came off that clip that it's attached to. Spectacular figure in both modes. Takara needs to crank out some more G1 carbots of this quality.

    Take it step by step, look closely at how each step works, and take extra care with the steps involving the doors and windshield. It should be fine if aren’t heavy-handed with him.

    Also, I found it helpful to use the Google Translate app with the instructions. It provides a very rough translation, but that seemed to add an extra bit of context to a few steps. That in addition to noting what others have reported in this thread helped my experience go very well.

    Look at online videos with the instructions, that helps me quite a bit.

    The first time I transformed him back to bot mode, one of the side mirrors popped off. Luckily I found it and figured out how to pop it back in.

    I also agree with the windshield, the second time I transformed him, it slipped off of the hinge. My heart dropped! But everything was fine.

    Takara has definitely upped the ante on these figures with Sunstreaker. I’m excited to see what’s in store with the next car bot.
