When I first saw the pictures of this guy on the net, I thought I would barf from the clash of the colours. Aqua, pink and black. G2 was known well for bright, horrible and clash as well as large amount of cheesey colours as well. Hmmm. But as time went on, the colours grew on me somewhat, and then I fell in love with the block head that many of the Scramble City combiners were saddled with so they can be bunged into the leader almost anywhere.
As a result this helped justify my purchase of the set as I already have about 3 or so of this mould for various characters and he has become one of my favoured characters (after Sky-byte of course) of this set. He is just a re-colour of the Classics Sunstreaker mould with a new head.
Still embarrassing gaffes aside, as I know how to transform him, it is quite a good figure. The extra config options give him very flexible arms, waist articulation and goo movement in the legs. His head is attached via a ball joint and it doesn't look too small. The bit I really like is the HUUUUGE G2 Decepticon logo on his chest and car bonnet which probably affects his abilities as a robot in disguise... as does having his name written on the car doors... But still, it looks pretty cool. The head is well painted with black lines and a blue face and even has some nice red shades to keep the harsh light of the sun from damaging his pretty eyes I guess.
