The complete egotist, Sunstreaker thinks he is the
most beautiful thing on Earth. Loves his sleek styling, contemptuous
of other Autobot race cars (particularly his twin Sideswipe). Fires
laser-guided ground-to-air rockets and high energy electron pulses
at 300 bursts/sec. Tough polymer-steel skin resists artillery. Not
a team player. Can be baited into dangerous situations, but is a
very calm, competent, and ruthless war machine.
Sunstreaker was available without (1984) or with a rub symbol (1985+).
Availability: This figure was available in 1984-1985
