Sunstreaker: Movie Concept by TheMinttu Sunstreaker: Movie Concept by TheMinttu
So, the robot mode design is finished! I doubt I'll be drawing a separate vehicle mode pic in addition to this, unless I can work it into the "in action" piece I'm planning to do. You know, just to give you the idea of Sunny's style of handling things :> His alt mode is a Lamborghini Murciélago, if that still at this point has managed to elude you. :)

Sunstreaker is a hand-to-hand brawler. He's small, and as frustrating it is to his ego, he has enough sense to use it in his advantage in battle. He knows where to strike, and has the strength to strike hard. His armor is tough, and he can take a lot of pounding before finally going down - down he eventually must go, before he's not known to back down from battle. He loves a good fight and really prefers to handle things up close and personally, was the opponent merely a drone or a Decepticon size of a house. Sunstreaker's undeniable skill and strength somewhat warp his image of his own importance, and that's why at times he may come across as slightly egotistical and overly dramatic.

In my personal movie universe Sunstreaker is not Sideswipe's brother. Partly because the roles for Autobot twins are already taken, partly because Sideswipe and Sunstreaker would both rather work alone. But together the two would make a damn good team - speed and strength combined.

On TFW2005 boards I was suggested to give him wheel feet to go with Sideswipe, but I want to stay true to my original design for most part. The tires give his upper body more mass and sorta look like muscles (I know they don't, but sort of!). That's also why I kept the most kibble in his arms and back. I wanted to keep the tighter fit of his legs' armor plating to imitate the solid look of wrestling boots. Kicking is also easier with real feet.



This Sunstreaker is a remake of my previous Movie Sunstreaker I did back in March 2008. With the final design I'll participate in a robot design contest hosted by and the awesome Josh Nizzi :)

I like how the head resembles a samurai kabuto helm with mask.

Y'all Know that Sunstreaker is Sideswipe's twin soooo like Make another sideswipe only shiny gold cause you know sunny's yellow.... Just saying. But Seriously bro If this is the Sunstreaker you are putting in the movie I will never watch another Michael bay/ Transformer movie again.

looks a little too pissed for Sunstreaker's personality, but otherwise kick-ass.
Centaur71 Featured By Owner May 2, 2014
YOU obviously don't know Sunstreaker; for being an Autobot, he's a maliciously CRUEL sonnofabitch, especially with jokes, insults and putdowns!

its too bad Lamborghini chose not to let they're models get "transformed" it would have made an awesome alt mode
Ivianna117 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009
Meep! I love how you incorporated his ear-vent thingies! Also, omg I could totally tell it was a Murcielago before I even read the description! Woot!
I love this. I love this a lot.

FFFFFFF- That's beyond awesome. Jos olisi oikeasti leffa-Sunny niin se näyttäis tältä. Täytyy nostaa hattua, tuota tehdessä on varmaan kulunut kahvipaketti jos toinenkin.
Ja arvaa kuka on unohtanut watchata sinut... pikku vika joka korjattakoon nyt.

This is great at staying true to the designs found in the films. I can't seem to draw them that way- they just look like car-robots when I do them (check them out if you get time). Anyways, very cool!

That is one nice design. I like how you managed to get the fins on his face. ~:heart:

Hope you do well in the contest! c:

Ihana kerrassaan ihana!! 8D Sinun on pakko voittaa...tahtoisin NIIN nähdä tämän kolmosessa edes vilahtavan!
Näkee suoraan että se on ihan kovan sarjan tappelija, kunnon kävelevä iso tonnin lyöjä.
Näen että hän ja Ironhide vetäisi kädet yhteen siitä kumpi osaa paremmin tapella, saattaisi molemmat heistä olla myös hyvä tiimi.

Varsinkin pidän ehkä siitä ettet pistänyt Sunnya Sideswipen veljeksi, kun ajattelee, että leffa universumi on ihan eri.
Ja myös pysyit uskollisena omalle suunittelullesi on myös hyvä.

Yay voitinko pisimmän kommentti kisan?
TheMinttu Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Kiitos kiitos~ :aww: Ei se voitto ole mikään tae siitä että hahmo tulee kolmoseen ;) Mitä nyt olen katsellut vähän niin enpä usko että pääsen tästä enää pidemmälle, on nimittäin niin upeita osallistujia että oksat pois :'D

Juh vilkaisin juuri, mutta minusta kyllä ansaitset...okei jotkut noista kyllä on niin silmäkarkkia kun yksi on tehnyt muuntautumisanimaation O_o...en silti toivo Unicronia...EI Unicronia XD vaikka Bay on sanonut ettei Unicronia tule.
