Neo Sunstreaker . Modernized version of the original character from Transformers G1 cartoon series.Transforms into a futuristic sports car with exposed engines. . Introduction Neo Sunstreaker is a "modernized" version of the original Transformers G1 Sunstreaker  toy.  This was yet another "impulse" moment when I took my LEGO Technobot Lightspeed for a photoshoot to compile the building instructions (it's here in my blog entry). I noticed that even though Lightspeed was a pretty old MOC of mine , the building techniques involved are pretty versatile. That explains why I'm still keeping him around displayed on my shelf till now. So one fine afternoon... I kicked off Project Neo Sunstreaker based on Lightspeed and its done in less than 10 days! Initially I planned to do a slight retool from Lightspeed, but one thing lead to another.. I ended up re-model the whole MOC almost from scratch. Murphy's Law strikes again! In my overzealous attempt of enhancing  him with detailed parts , I applied the grilled 1x2 slope on his  thighs. Knee articulation seemed fine the first few times I bent them for posing in 'bot mode , so  I though the build was OK . Finally the grilled slopes loosen and popped out after a while. By then I've already snapped most of the photos .It's not really an obvious "fault", but still, Dang ! No matter how careful you finalize your MOC/build for photo session... when things go wrong, THEY WILL.  Trivia This is the 2nd Transformers MOC  I build with an improved neck articulation (the first one being Rodimus Primal ). Now he can tilt his head up and down besides the usual left-right. The original toy came with interchangeable hand / missile launcher thingy on his wrist . I say... why not BOTH ?  Decided only to put the red-part on his shoulder as a homage to the original toy since it's not too "intrusive" in car mode (apparently they're tucked in the back of the car and doesn't spoil the paintjob). It's my most solid MOC to date. Transformation doesn't cause parts to fall off easily. Do forgive the lack of details for the torso/waist, coz it's too compact in vehicle mode until can't even fit in a single tile to enhance it. Due to the not-so-ideal rendering of  my page in mocpages.com , where text and images spacing/alignment are messed up, I will only upload few photos here.  For a complete set of photos with transformation sequence, do visit my blog entry below: http://alanyuppie.blogspot.com/2012/08/lego-neo-sunstreaker-with.html
