A touch shorter than the ROTF Leader mold.

Love it.

So MP 39 being Sunstreaker is a bit of a surprise. Was totally expecting Dinobot. Looks good, but way too similar to Sunsurge to inspire me to instantly preorder

Bet he has a sweet transformation though. Definitely will end up picking him up at some point, he'll just be low priority

I don't think anyone was really asking for Sunstreaker but I'm going to be happy with it to fill my autobot ranks. Why not Jazz?

$119 USD. Only $20 less than Inferno. I'll probably just wait for a KO if this is the right price. Nearly $50USD more than Hot Rodimus!

Wow! Did not expect it to be that steep. I had a feeling price would be higher than regular car bots due to the added accessories and higher parts count, but this is quite hard to swallow

Go away for a few days and all the good news comes out.
My only issue with Sunstreaker is the head - looks way to cartoonish

If you don't mind going down the premium collectables Avenue they're doing preorders today at AU$100..

Edit: plus free shipping it would seem!

Ah - at the Sunstreaker's commanding, I anticipate the included Chip Chase figure is going to be very-very well designed with a working wheelchair. ;)

Has the recommended retail price been finalised?

Be warned, premium collectables has vast back log of unfilled orders especially transformers. Have a look at the threads on ozformers people waiting for $1000s going back over a year.

There is a thread on TFW2005 about this too. Appears PC takes money for stock they don't have or haven't even secured, then gives you a big finger.
