    But... minus the articulated fingers, that's exactly how the mold looks.

    Minus some strangely placed shoulders and a face with the expression of a corpse. :)

    I know what he means; the illustration* has the chest drawn relatively small, like P/CP's artwork, giving the impression of a better proportioned robot. Although, the photo on the Botcon page isn't very flattering, even for this mold.

    Plus, the shoulders are black. :tongue: 

    * which is awesome!

    nice looking toy and art...i am just really disappointed with the toy. It seems like funpub didnt even try, they just took silverstreak and tweaked it a tad...not saying i dislike the toy, just disapointed. Anyone else out there feeling this too?

    I feel quite the opposite. Despite the fact that mold has seen several releases already and the paint apps for this figure are pretty simple, I have a high level of interest. I think they hit it out of the park with this year's figures.

    Yeah I like Streetstar, he's nice colors and homages the G2 figure very well. He may have some similarity between the Henkei Streak, Silverstreak, and the two versions of Prowl, but he's different enough to look really cool. Plus he's a very nice glossy black in all these pictures - which should look sharp.
