    Well I managed to pick up my Bluestreaks and Meisters this morning after they had been in my local post office for the best part of a week.

    There isn't much to say about Meister that hasn't already been said about the previous Binaltech Meisters and Shockwave.

    The Mazda is a cracking car and this version of Meister is no less impressive than the previous ones. The colour really looks good, less toyish then white Meister and red ZoomZoom, it almost looks like a showroom car when pictures are taken at the right angle to hide some of the seams.

    One thing to note was that after spending time with Kiss Players Autorooper, I had forgotten just how much sturdier the Binaltech figures are. This one feels very solid and is very tight in general.

    Anyway, enough jibber jabber, here are some pictures.

    Hmmm fresh robots.

    Its been so long since my last Binaltech, I had forgotten how good they look.

    Now that I've overcome my intense jealousy, he looks awesome and so do your pics. I'd choose this one over the plain Bluestreak.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    One thing I did forget to mention is that the instruction sheet for Meister is pretty poor - just a plain which sheet with black and white instructions.

    Even worse, there is no binaltech card in the Meister I opened :( 

    I am sure all the previous ones had the card in them :(

    Got mine a week ago and he is uber awesome. Glad I sold off the White Meister long ago and got this instead. Better than the rubbish kiss players they trustd upon us....

    Okay, that looks very, VERY sexy. I still think the Jazz mold looks it's best when it's white, but nevertheless, my credit card has begun to twich...

    So what's Bluestreak like?

    maybe he didn't come with a trading card because he is a repaint?

    Just got my 3 latest BTs from TFsource.

    Mesiter is by far the best figure of the 3. Awesome paint job, great mold. There's really no reason to get it :p 

    My only gripe is that mine has a bad scratch on the passenger door. it's not huge, but still. I could see something was wrong before opening it, but it looked like a small piece of cardboard, and not a scratch.

    From what I read on their FAQ and they don't take returns :( . Oh well, he'll be displayed on his good side lol.
