I've met people who think both Powerglide and Cosmos are Gobots.
Well it's basically the same mold except the transformation is different so I guess we could guess... yes.
No, apparently it's been confirmed over at the Club forums that it's an original mould.
It's a typo. It happens. Hardly worth drawing attention to it 3 pages later...
okay, just i prefer the old version
my thoughts exactly I know thats what I'll be doing. Sigh they are like 10months out yet already planning on modding them, that tells you something.
Like some people have said already, the ROOF is supposed to be the chest on Streaker, which it is now. The concept art was of Sideswipe's transformation, with the HOOD as the chest. Remember when everyone was bitching when Alt Sideswipe came out and had the roof as a chest? That's because that's what SUNSTREAKER was supposed to look. Now they get it right, and lo and behold, commence the bitching.
This place really grinds my gears sometimes.
I said this on another board but it applies here as well.
I know we collect toys as our hobby but do we really have to act like children while doing so?
Now as far as not being able to see the pic, as much as I'd like to see it, I understand the reasons behind it. And while I cant see the pic, I do welcome the info that has been provided in this thread, that info being who the first 5 Classics 2.0 figures are going to be. I'm very much looking forward to the pics once they are availabe to the general public.
Heh... yeah. Some of us are like that, though. Before a figure's even out, we're planning what we're gonna kitbash it into...
Heh! That was my first thought, too. If this toy isn't remolded into Punch/Counterpunch, I will personally run around the streets of Brussels stark-naked.
The concept with the front of the car as the chest had nostalgia while the actual figure with the roof as the chest doesn't?
I guess you have a different G1 Sunstreaker than I do.
Gotta go fix that ... but cool name, don't you think?
Yep. Typo ... from someone from a non-english speaking country ... so I guess that se me debe perdonar que me equivoque de vez en cuando, no?
Indeed. It's also sad that when we see Hasbro properly researching G1 character attributes (such as Sunstreaker chest being the car roof and not the hood) there's so much bitching because Hasbro didn't do it wrong.
Knock it off please.
Saw the pic, I think he looks kind of cool. He kind of reminds me of the Alternator mold a little bit, in particular the chest. I do have one question though that makes me scratch my head, why would the engine be placed on the roof of the car? That part of the alt mode doesn't make any sense to me. Other than that, I think the car looks pretty cool. I do get a Classics Mirage feel in the design though. Can't wait to see what Sideswipe will look like.
I was just looking at him again, and, I know it's very unlikely, but, it almost looks like he could have rubber tires. I'm most likely wrong, but, it would be cool for the new Classics to have rubber tires on them.
The more I look at it, the clearer it becomes that the engines placement is blatantly wrong. I think it should be back to front as it is now with the big mass of black techy bits slotted under the Lambo's rear deck with just the vents being visible on top ala IDW Sunstreaker.
Also, anyone notice what appears to be the front number plate flipped up on the car mode?
*mad wish for 007 style car weapons*
You know something folks, I am completely FED UP with a bunch of whining, apparently BROKE, and or "I am entitled to everything, even when other people PAY for something, I, yes III should get it for FREE" mentality.

Well, one of my friends decided to surprise me by showing me the pic on AIM (so much for deciding to wait) and I cannot believe that people are complaining about him!
The weapon placement in vehicle mode is obviously wrong, air intakes don't face backwards. I hope there's a way to mount that thing on sunstreakers back. It's obvious that it can mount on his chest (sideswipes back) but there's really not much of a point in that.
I love it, I don't see anything wrong with it. I'm sure he'd look a lot better in a different pose though. The one he's in isnt flattering at all.
Powerglide and octane? I can't even comment or my TFW account will get deleted.
I like the other choices though, but I hope the rest of the Combaticons will follow (and soon).
This Sunstreaker design is quite cool. I love how they worked in Sideswipe without the need for a new mold.
Give sideswipe a new head, reverse his hands, pivot the waist 180 degrees and bam! The same mold now has a hood chest. I'll bet anything Sideswipe comes with reversed hands and that one extra step in the instructions to rotate the waist.
