    That's a bit better ;) 

    That being done, Streaker looks sweet. Be sure to put up pics of him with his engine and gun when they get there!

    While it's a nice style, it clearly shows why they should start to include sticker packs again. Geez it's boring as all.

    It's the flatest looking thing in yawnsville man.

    I love it. If we can get 3 figures out of this mold let them be:

    Sunstreaker
    Sideswipe
    Punch

    top half looks good but the legs just arent working for me, im not sure what the designer was thinking, compared to the cleverness and aesthetics of the universe swerve this is quite a letdown, the bits hanging at the knees really spoil the look.

    Aside from the two-tone yellow (which is entirely understandable) I can't fault Sunstreaker.

    The head detail is brilliant, but he's lacking a lot of detail in car mode, it needs more black, it looks really bland and cheap with all that yellow (much like Animated BB) and because of this, the legs are missing a lot of detail, hence the cheap look.

    Ditto with the buying of these guys asap... however i agree with the earlier comments about the styling of this line, I think that the new universe line is edging a bit closer to the realistic styling of the Alternators line, this might be just me, but there was something about the original Classics vehicle modes that were not quite recognisable as production cars that made them a bit special.

    Also we know from past repaints and remolds that Sunstreaker and Sideswipe won't be that much different, but it would have been nice to have a very different transformation for the same/similar alt mode, remember the G1 brothers transformed completly differently to each other (okay their Alt modes looked very different to each other too) but we all knew they were both based on Lamborgini countachs

    On a side note, if either of these guys make it into the Movie, it would be very nice if they appeared as Reventóns (yes I know it'll never happen with the Audi VW guys in charge)

    Just a thought! would be nice.

    IMO Universe Sunstreaker is a PERFECT homage to one of my favorite G1 characters; that means like others I can't wait.

    Congrats on the purchase!

    don't know, from what i've seen of the pictures, it seems that it IS just an after thought. with the big chest. don't know i hope it's not.

    the cybertron line was designed to have the cyberkeys but it seems that some of the features were indeed after thoughts, like vector prime's key, being JUST sounds. *at least that is with mine*

    but i just hope it doesn't just look like he's standing with backwards with all his parts backwards like all the 'con pictures have been.

    Originally, the mold ONLY transformed with the Sideswipe transformation. The only differences would have been the heads and Streaker having the engine behind he head and Sideswipe having a shoulder launcher. They then realised with only a slight tweak, they could give it a more 'Streaker like transformation so they weren't exactly clones.
