    Hey guys,

    I've added the article for the first release Mexican G1 Smokescreen in Bluestreak body.

    Holy crap! That's one awesome varient! Great article, Maz.

    On slightly unrelated note, now I feel like a chowda' head for not picking up the Hasbro re-issue Smokescreen.

    NIce! I remember before smokescreen was reissued he used to fetch a pretty penny, however no more : ( I have a vintage and takara reissue, would love to get this one though. It looks so mich better without the extra front bumper and spoiler.

    Wow, I never knew about that one! Thanks!

    Out of interest, is it me, or does the Smokestreak look a little slimmer than the US one? It's almost like Maz says, that the Mexican one is a younger version of the character.

    What a super rare find. o_O ...

    I still prefer the American version though. The front bumper, roof, and the spoiler are just icing on the cake for me.

    that's simply astonishing. Smokescreen is my favorite G1er, this would be a total grail for me if i even thought it was possible...

    wowzers. i did not know that.

    this is why i feel TFs wont loose my interest for quite awhile. theres a lot of stuff that are really out there and theres always something that surprises you.

    TF love me long time, sucky sucky.
