    While yes, he does look a little weird while next to everyone in alt mode, since it looks like a bike for giants...His bot mode is amazing and the overall look of him is a thing of beauty. Also I probably won't have him in alt mode 90% of the time.

    They said on their Weibo page this is not the final production product, just production sample. Final product may be different, in particular, a lot of comments about the Chinese markings, people suggested changing it to something else.

    Not fond of the Kanji (or Katakana) characters on the sides of the vehicle, but it's not a deal breaker. Otherwise... thumbs up.

    Aah, really? Man, I love the letters! Reminds me of chug Drift.

    Either way, this is looking really good.

    I don't care what they go with on the side of the car mode, as it'll still look awesome.

    I don't really have a spot for this in my collection, but that's sure a nice-looking toy.

    Dammit GT, just take my money.

    I'm definitely getting Streetwise.

    That looks sick. I say keep the kanji characters.

    That's good to hear, although I'm more bothered by the lame GT shield. I want something that looks like real police deco.

    No real complaints otherwise, except maybe that he could use some red accents on his head. Fantastic-looking car, fantastic-looking bot

    (And before David says anything, no, he's not gray, and yes, he's very Prowlish... But that's IDW-accurate. I'll find some pics later.)

    Not katakana. That's a phonetic alphabet used by the Japanese for sounding/spelling non-Japanese words with Japanese syllables.

    I'll let kanji slide, since kanji is the name they use for the Chinese characters they use in their writing. In that case, it would simple read as "keisatsu," which means "police."

    Given that GT is Chinese, though (and the Chinese for Chinese characters is 汉字, or hanzi, by the way), it's probably meant to be 警察 (jingcha).

    This guy is beautiful. Not getting Defensor but might get Streetwise as standalone. Maybe call him Autorooper ;)

    Might like a darker tint to the windows but he looks fantastic.

    Kanji / Katakana is Japanese. Hanzi is Chinese.
