    Went to a local comic store with all the wave 3 figures. IMHO, yeah, Sunstreaker’s yellow mismatch is very much noticeable...like way noticeable and from afar...and not just due to camera pics. We have SS Scrapper who also had a color mismatch in camera pics but IRL looked fine, probably because his yellow was painted over solid and not clear plastic.

    We do plan on getting Spinout and Cordon set, though.

    Heck no! Give him a gun, or wait for a 3rd party upgrade kit (I'm looking at you, Nonnef!) and he'll be even better than he is now.

    That old janky @$$ Classics mold is... No.

    Different lighting can definitely alter the perception of the yellows. If I pull Sunstreaker off my shelf and handle him the differences are noticeable (though they don't bother me a whole lot) but if he's on the shelf the yellows look like an almost exact match due to the lighting I have on the shelf. It's really weird

    Scorponok arrived from the Pulse restock today! I'm as impressed with the fast fulfillment as I am with the figure itself!

    This is what I've wanted from Transformers for a very long time. So glad it's finally happening.

    Question for Runamuck owners:

    I know QC varies from copy to copy...but is the backpack part that hangs over his head supposed to hard click into those two clear pieces over each shoulder; or merely just act as a guide to place the backpack on?

    I really disagree. This mold was great by the standards of the time but by modern standards it's way too fiddly and hard to balance. ER Sunstreaker would be pretty much perfect with a proper yellow paintjob and an upgrade kit for his spoiler and gun.

    No way would Sunstreaker ever commit to being that ugly.

    You're right about that.

    I only mentioned the fact that ZXB don't make a blue version because the G1 toy of Roller came in silver and blue variants.

    Anybody who wants ZXB's design in blue will have to paint one themselves.

    And that, right there, is why ER Sunstreaker is borderline perfect compared to the Classics version. Man, that looks incredible.

    Now, to find someone with a 3D printer with that color of plastic who wants to make a few bucks...
