    You know, you never can tell when something is going to catch your eye that you can use on your Transformers. Case in point:

    I'm at the local Hobby Lobby the other day and I come across this little gem:

    And I had an idea. It always bugged me that the original G1 Prowl got a sticker for his headlights, but poor Bluestreak and Smokescreen got kind of shafted. When I saw these in the store I thought, "Problem solved". I just super-glued one stud to each headlight socket and it was done. Basically, this is a $10.00 Toy's R Us Reissue Silverstreak, with his weapons spray painted using Krylon Chome Silver, his eyes painted blue to match his 'toon version and I painted his hood and roof using Krylon Fusion Black.

    Instant G1 Bluestreak.

    **Please excuse the yellow tones in the pictures, I had to borrow my dad's digital camera and his color settings are way different than mine. When I get my camera back I may repost better pics.**

    Somebody needs to front-page and sticky the correct spelling of "voilà". :D  It's French, people. :p 


    Awesome work on Bluestreak. Especially the black shiny paint.

    Thats an awesome repaint, man,
    And I *love* your idea for the headlights.
    I am working on a custom right now that needs new headlights.
    I just spent a good hour brainstorming on what to use before I saw this. just You just solved my dilemma.:D
