Hasbro Transformers War For Cybertron: Earthrise Sunstreaker & Trailbreaker Figures Review

 

Hasbro’s Transformers War For Cybertron: Earthrise line continues with an assortment of the third wave of deluxe figures that are available now. This wave includes the Autobots Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker, and the Decepticons Fasttrack and Runamnuck. These figures were part of the Transformers War For Cybertron: Earthrise PR box that Hasbro sent out, which we did an unboxing review last month.

Every figure includes a piece of the Transformers Universe map and a red decoder to unlock the map’s hidden paths.

 

 

Thank you to Hasbro for providing their Transformers War For Cybertron: Earthrise Sunstreaker & Trailbreaker Figures for review. 

Availability: November 2020

These figures are packaged in the deluxe size window box, with nicely done artwork and logo’s on the front, images of him inspired from the Netflix series on the right, a group shot of characters on the left, images of the figure in both modes and more artwork on the back.

 

Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker pay homage to their 80’s counterparts, and are updated for this new era of Transformers figures. Sunstreaker is a brand new mold for this line, and this mold was used to make Spin-Out and Cordon. Sunstreaker’s chest is actually darker translucent plastic painted yellow, which does not match the yellow plastic. This is seen more clearly in his sports car mode as he has two shades of yellow, but technically it should be just one. Also on his chest is an Autobot logo, which is also seen on the top of the roof in vehicle mode. His engine block can be used as a pair of rocket boosters or as a blaster.

 

Trailbreaker is a retool of Hoist, and converts from a robot into a camper truck. Trailbreaker features a new head sculpt, elvis a gun attachment, and a new backpack that replaces Hoist’s towing apparatus with a canopy. The shoulder cannon and a radar scanner are attached to his back and can be seen on the sides of his head. Trailbreaker can use the canopy as a shield and it also has a hole on top to store his gun attachment in vehicle mode. The Autobot logo can be seen on his chest, and on the hood in vehicle mode. He also has some additional decals in vehicle mode on the sides.

Overall, Sunstreaker and Trailerbreaker are excellent figures, with great likenesses and pay great homages to their 80’s counterparts. These characters are long overdue for a modern update and Hasbro’s Transformers team has done a fantastic
