    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I got them earlier this week on Thursday. Silverstreak and Sideswipe from a local TRU in Singapore and Ironhide from Metro, another departmental store here. I suspect Ironhide might be short-packed as there were considerably less Ironhides on shelf than the other two.

    Here are the pics:

    Silverstreak's boxart looks a little TOO SIMILAR to Prowl's. Okay, so he's a re-deco, but come on!

    See?

    Most likely not news, as we've seen all three of them in-package before. In fact, we actually have the stock photos of them in-package.

    I think this is the first time we have seen Silverstraek's bio as well.

    These were purchased overseas in the asian region of the world, if I recall solitudinal's location correctly.


    Nope. It was posted a week or two ago.

    Yes, he clearly stated they were purchased in Singapore. I guess I just did not realize that only stateside purchases qualified as news.

    They well might. Usually sightings overseas, barring the UK, generally don't get FP'd unless I'm horribly forgetful. Granted, it's 3am, so it's possible :)  I was mostly pointing out that we've seen all three of these in package already, as well as the bios.

    Overseas sightings that PREDATE the first US store sighting usually DO qualify for news.

    I'm really looking forward to picking these up. I know some people don't like how broken up Ironhide looks, but it doesn't bother me.

    These are awesome. I like how they changed the face art on Bluestreak from Prowl's packaging. No more slack jaw.

    Regarding Sol's complaint about Silverstreak's art being "too similar" to Prowl's despite being a redeco, there's a very good reason - Marcelo was very restricted in terms of the pose he was requested to paint the figures in. Given that (from the front at least) they're exactly the same fig, a subtle change in the facial expression was pretty much all he was allowed to change.

    Thanks for the info. It's pretty unfortunate. I do not really like Marcelo's style for the TFU boxart. Some look really good like Onslaught, but that could also be because he doesn't really have a face. :tongue: 

    I think Prowl and Silverstreak's faces just look really, weird. And Sunstreaker's is a little too. :lol
