    Because it's a "concept art" design? o_O

    How many people have actually found these two? Was it just the one Walmart? Seems really weird that they showed up like this and then didn’t pop up all across the country the way such sightings usually run…

    Agreed, doesn't fit as right as he should or I'd like, that being said if you have the SSGE WFC bots (I'm sorry) he looks pretty in line there both in robot mode and alt mode, the face leans more BBM but still works mostly.
    One guy and Walmart.

    Give up, my friend. Trying to point out all the detailing on Sunstreaker to those who don’t want to acknowledge it is a short path to madness.

    By the way, could you possibly take a full profile shot? I’m curious as to what his upper arms and lower legs look like from the side. Thanks!

    You know, I’m also starting to find that his level of live action detail isn’t particularly lacking in comparison to the others. He could certainly use more of course, but the amount of greebly bits on his legs, abdomen, and face more than allow him to blend in with the likes of Arcee, Brawn, Wheeljack, and Bee, who are all mostly smooth panels when you take a good look at them as well. I think he looked much worse on his own because of those awfully barren arms and poor paint job, but some kind of cheerleader effect seems to happen for me when you place him next to the others. A good old fashioned group attractiveness effect if you will.

    Love the angled look of his car kibble on the legs there. Almost looks like stabilizing thrusters to pair with his gun jetpack.

    Agreed, I think he fits with the other BBM Cybertronian figures just fine.

    Perfect. Man, Sunstreaker never skips triceps day, does he? He hides those wheels quite well, though, considering you pretty much need this angle to see them. Thank you.

    For the most part streaker looks good and the wheels in altmode is very tron like and a nice touch but it's the shoulders that's the issue for me. It's a pity they can't be tucked away or folded down in sime way so they aren't as intrusive in bot mode.

    Colors are nice and a nice headsculpt just not a fan of the shoulders so he's a pass.

    That sounds like a sitcom waiting to happen.

    “Coming this fall, it’s… One Guy and Walmart! Will he find anything he wants this week? Will he walk away with crushing disappointment? Only the winds of fate know for sure!”

    I wish we had more concept characters like this for Bumblebee characters in G1 based designs like Sideswipe, Kup, Blurr, Hot Rod and others.

    Sideswipe and Trailbreaker are set for the BB concept treatment according to ROTB concept art notes. It also wouldn’t shock me if Laserbeak and Frenzy were on their way as well.

    Beyond those four though, it’s a toss up on who else could’ve been designed but not shown. For BB at least. The other films have a plethora of concept characters we know for sure they can offer up. Bring on Transit!

    Well then Sunstreaker I would like to see him have his “brother”. I still wish we could see those characters I mentioned. And beyond those I actually would like to see Studio Series include characters not seen onscreen in show or game like how the film series toylines did. Like Bumblebee Optimus into Toxitron, Bumblebee Bumblebee into Bug Bite, Bumblebee Cybertronian Seekers into others like Sunstorm, Dirge, and Ramjet.

    Those would be really fun as Gen Selects releases, like how we used to get guys like RotF Skywarp and Smokescreen as repaints of Starscream and Jazz.

    SS really should get some GS stuff.
    If we don't I wouldn't be upset since WFC Sideswipe apart from the fact fits like really well with this Sunstreaker.
