    The inspiration behind this Transformer comes from two related sources; the colors of this figure are inspired by Generation 2 Streetwise, an unreleased repaint of Protectobot Streetwise. The name Streetwise was unavailable for some reason so he's called Streetstar, after Operation Combination Streetstar, a 1992 Japanese repaint of Protectobot Streetwise. The car mode body is black, with blue windows. It's lightbar is blue on one side and red on the other and looks very different from the previous version of the figure. However Streetstar's robot mode looks very much like Silverstreak's robot mode, except that all the grey has been turned to black. There's a nice touch on the waist where there's red & blue panels mimicking the lightbars. Streetstar was sold in the main Botcon 2010 boxset with Breakdown, Sky-Byte, Clench and Spark.

    I created my own decals for the side doors and the roof, so I believe (my opinion, anyway) is that this replica is as close to the original as you can probably get in a custom... I posted a WIP photo awhile ago... here he is in both vehicle and robot mode...

    Thanks guys! I spray-painted the black, but hand-painted the reds, grays, and blues. I also made my own decals as you cannot find these anywhere! It was a lot of effort, but it was worth it :)

    This is super-slick. His non-attachment to G2 here begins to give him a life all his own.
