Sunstreaker

I was never really satisfied with using an original Sunstreaker head:

A knockoff from a line called 'The Formulator Force'

When the Robot Heroes line hit the scene, the choice for a new head, plus a new backpack, became much easier:

Ram air intake anyone?

The body posed a challenge. I happened to have an extra Neo-Wheel from the SixTurbo Micromaster reissue, so I grafted it onto a Wheeljack torso. I had to swap out the arm pegs to accommodate Sprocketís arms, which are a pretty good match for Sunstreaker. The legs are from Jackpot; I wanted to make sure they had a tire as well as the illusion that the carís hood turns into the top of the feet. All in all, one of my favorite projects to date.

Here are the colors I used on Sunstreaker:
  • Astronomican Grey (Games Workshop)
  • Space Wolves Grey (Games Workshop)
  • Ice Blue (Games Workshop)
  • Chaos Black (Games Workshop)
