    Man, he is looking spiffy indeed!! Love how much classic Countach they worked into the design!! Yes, the mismatched paint on his chest is a bit odd, but I'm sure it's nothing that reprolabels can't fix. Funny, I didn't notice his 'goateee' lol! Not bothered by it at all though because the diaclone toy that became Sunstreaker had a 'robo-tee' too. Many if not all the original Tfs did, it's part of classic Tf design history, so I'm good with it. If it bothers me when in hand, a sliver sharpee will take care of the matter nicely.

    Any-how, again, I am so pumped for this release! Would I have preferred better and more faithful rear-engine and spoiler design? Of course! Is this still a nice hunk of yellow G1 inspired awesomeness! Hell yes! I have no doubts that some creative soul from the Maker-Movement will devise something cool. Can't wait to get him and pose him with his bro!

    Those shins look terrible.

    How is Reprolabels going to "fix" the chest when it's the figure's color that's off, not the hood?

    Leftover designs, brought back. Potato, potato.

    Did you ever actually see those toys? Not something to be proud of. The line sort of reminded me of Animated, except instead of just giving up and not doing _any_ toys for season three, they just shoveled out bits and pieces of whatever was lying around to warm shelves until it died.

    You mean Hasbro, Sultan of (Cost) Savings, reused a mold? Be still my heart. Although I'm still shocked that they didn't throw a curve like the Brawl or Rook mold because reasons.

    More Takara's doing than Hasbro. US collectors were just along for the ride.

    I have all four. Definitely could be better but I don't dislike the mold.

    Wonder if some future weapon pack will include an actual weapon for him?

    Sunstreaker decided to stroke his own ego, he made his backpack an Oct-shotgun pistol. Yeah I think that weapons pack might compliment him more plus he feels like a much better figure then WheelJack in appearance.

    Where did I say collectors hated them? Wow. Good job completely screwing up my comments. There's a difference between saying something is junk, and saying no one bought it. McDonalds is junk, and they serve billions! People bought the Combiner wars stuff, but for many, it was under the assumption that it'd be the closest to G1 for many of those figures they'd ever get. There were tons of people on the forums complaining about the simplistic transformations, thin & hollow plastic, and designs. CW Devastator sold out quickly everywhere, with most people complaining about the individual Constructicons being hollow shells with disgusting articulation, but it was the stand-in for many until Toyworld & GT came out with theirs.

    But if you compare the Combiner Wars Sunstreaker to Earthrise Sunstreaker, there is no doubt that Earthrise far better quality toy than the CW toy, and doesn't cost much more.

    But you go on making crap up.

    Which, by the way isn't true. People who bought CW wanted CW. The people who wanted G1 were the biggest opponents to it because not only were the bot modes inaccurate, but so was the combination aspect for many figures. Heck, that same G1 crowd were also the ones most pissed about guys like Alpha Bravo, Rook, and Offroad because they weren't G1 components to the original combiners.

    CW Sunny:

    -Fat thighed bastard

    -Sword-rifle thing (the hell even is that?)

    -neat red highlights but uh....kinda needless

    -Decent-ish stand in

    ER Sunny:

    -FLAMBOYANT

    -articulate as all Heck

    -Octo-barrel Jet-pack pistol thing of DOOM

    -Perfect stand in

    I did like WheelJack plus the Exhaust repaint was sexy but this ER Sunstreaker....I don't know how but I wanna see a Spin-out in Selects

    Erm...I didn't buy any combiner wars when I saw they wouldn't come with the G1 teams. Didn't get any until Unite Warriors. Still cannot give a single fuck about trash new guys! :lol

    honestly I'd prefer a 2 port to 1 port adapter to reposition the engine intake over a spoiler

    I know some people feel with gypped with guys like Optimus, Starscream, etc getting figures in ER right after Siege, but I kinda hope Sideswipe gets that treatment, I know for some the siegeswipe is close enough, but to me it's still too futuristic/cybertronian to fit in with his bro.

    The red highlights were a neat callback to the Marvel G1 comics and G1 toy.

    Nope. Sorry. Nowhere did I say hate. Obviously, reading comprehension is beyond your skills. Not wasting anymore time with you. Ta-ta!

    I love the ignore feature! It's worth gold!

    I bought some for my sons, but for me, the CW line and the sequels did nothing. The new Siege/Earthrise looks fantastic, however. Easily among the best figures since the Classics/Universe line.
