    Are the gun, missiles and launchers all chromed too? Just bought one off another member here and the missiles look dulled, the gun broken with grey color underneath and the launchers are grey also.

    Needless to say, I'm not happy.

    Sigh... I seem to be on a roll of bad luck with purchases lately..

    Hey Ikkstakk, is the gun lightweight or feel flimsy? I'm concerned the gun I was sent is the right one with the figure, but as it is broken, does me no good.

    Here's an image of what I got... what's your opinion?

    Well, I can tell you straight up that those launchers look like they came from a regular-edition Prowl. As for the gun and the missiles... well, they might belong to chrome Bluestreak, or they might not. Since the launchers definitely don't belong to him, my gut says that missile on the bottom doesn't either. It appears to have more chrome wear than the others.

    The gun is lightweight and somewhat bendy, so it might belong to him. But as you say, it's definitely broken. Did you know it was broken before you bought it?

    EDIT: Here, let's do this the right way.

    On the left is the gun, missiles and launchers from chrome Bluestreak. On the right is the gun, missiles and launchers from my G1 Prowl that I bought back in 1985. Looking at it this way I can tell that there's some slight retooling on the missiles, on those rings. The old missiles have one less ring than the newer ones, just like the bottom missile in your photo. So that bottom missile definitely doesn't belong to chrome Bluestreak. The other two probably do.

    Thanks for the details. Unfortunately, it looks like the gun was correct, meaning that the broken gun I got does go to him. Which sucks a lot. I was not told it was broken before buying. The guy said he would look for the launchers and another gun. Sucks to be me. Know of anywhere I can get a new gun?

    He's sending me the correct launchers and some more missiles for me to figure out. No other gun, so I guess I am SOL on that.

    Know anyone with a chromed gun for sale?

    Send it in to chrometech. They'll chrome it up for you nicely. You have to spend a minimum $20 with them though

    Yes, but his gun is broken. I think he'd like to have a non broken gun.

    I most certainly would like a non-broken gun.

    Thankfully I got the correct launchers and missiles yesterday and matched them up fine.

    I'm out a gun though... anyone know where I can get one?
