    Which toy (or recolor) do you like the best? I know they are all the Datsun Fairlady Z's, but I always preferred Bluesteak (Silverstreak)...and if I could get my hands on one, the original Diaclone BLUE one!

    I always though that Prowl for the original character for the mold. Of course, I reason this simply because he is my favorite 84 car Autobot.

    I always had a soft spot for Smokescreen. The front end of the car/chest always looked better to me.

    i love smokescreen the most!

    but they are all awesome cuz they are all minor remolds and not straight repaints. Prowl seemed like the only one who ever got a line in on the cartoon. But i just cant shake how awesome smokescreens deco is

    bluestreak, definitely. I've just been messing around with my reissue that I painted like the diaclone blue, and marveling at how much I like that mold. prowl does come in a close second, though.

    Despite owning a blue Bluestreak, I totally dig Prowl.

    I'd go with Smokescreen. The racing deco just looks so nice in car mode, and bot mode looks just as snazzy.

    In order of preference:

    Smokescreen: the gold forehead crest is awesome, and really makes the deco click
    Blue Bluestreak: boy I wish I could afford one of these
    Prowl: police deco is quite cool
    "Black Hood" Bluestreak: two-tone paintjob is nice, but not as cool as the blue one
    All-silver "Silverstreak": blaaaaand, at least compared to the others. But I suppose at least it looks like a car you might actually see on the streets

    Really, they're ALL nice, though. I think the Fairlady is one of the nicest molds in G1; they picked the right one to produce in triplicate.

    Lately I've had a soft spot for Bluestreak. They're the Autobot version of the seekers when you think about it, the only difference is they weren't known to work together often, as far as I remember I only saw Bluestreak and Prowl team up. But more than that, Prowl and Smokescreen get homages all the time, and so far Bluestreak has only gotten one real homage as an Alternator. (I'm not counting the name-dumped G1 Spychanger that looked nothing like him, I mean intentionally made to be an homage)

    I have the reissues, and love them all. Anime Bluestreak is my favorite, followed by the hasbro reissue. Prowl and Smokescreen come in after.
    I had the chrome one, but didn't like it, so I sold it off.
    I really want a blue Bluestreak, that would be hip.

    Smokescreen, for the simple reason that he's one of, if not the, last transformers I remember my grandmother giving me, when I was a kid.

    Diaclone colored Bluestreak looks great. Cartoon colored Bluestreak looks silly.

    Prowl and the all silver Bluestreak rate about the same, to me.

    Gotta say Smokescreen for color, Prowl for character. I just see the blue and red deco being similar to Prime and that being the image of an autobot. I do think Bluestreak looks the best in vehicle mode, though.

    I like them all. Smokescreen has an awesome deco, for some reason I can't keep myself away from a toy with that deco. Really wish that Armada Hot Shot recolour had been released.

    I seriously can't choose because each of them have aspects that I like:

    i) Prowl - being a police bot, really makes him "leader-like". I was thinking if Optimus Prime was the designated leader by Hasbro, Prowl would have been the leader...seeing how the autobot symbol looks like his, Bluestreak and Smokescreen's face.

    ii) Blue Streak - his uniform colour scheme makes him look sleek.

    iii) Smokescreen - snazzy colour.

    All three of them got equal time speaking. Bluestreak more than Prowl, though Prowl got more sceen time. Smokescreen also had larger roles in season two.

    My personal favorite: Prowl.
