    hey guys...got these 3 today

    [​IMG]

    and noticed that silverstreak has not got a pictorial review..
    here they are out of the box
    [​IMG]

    silverstreak is quite a nice repaint of universe prowl (minus the sticky doors :D )

    [​IMG]
    (bit dark, sorry)
    [​IMG]

    i dont have a pic with prowl in vehicle mode, coz i didnt have prowl in robot mode at the time i took these pics..but apart from the obvious paint differences, its the same..without the siren on top

    transformation is identical to prowl, and the robot mode is pretty much identical to prowl too

    here's a comparison between the two
    [​IMG]

    more comparison pics
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    overall, its a very G1 cartoon accurate silverstreak, with the only non-accurate part being the name of the figure...the red/black/silver look is very nice, and unlike Classics 1.0, where we had to wait for henkei versions to get cartoon accuracy, this time around hasbro's getting it right too...maybe the paint quality itself isnt as great as a henkei figure might be, but its good, and definitely better than prowl. at least my figure is!

    here's a 3 way comparison
    [​IMG]

    and another
    [​IMG]

    if u want any more pics of the figure in either mode, let me know..
    also if anyone's got this figure, please add photos urself...i didnt want to make this thread too photo-heavy....hope u enjoyed..its a very good figure

    Cool. I imagine a lot of people are gonna trim his horns 1) for more cartoon accuracy and 2) to further distinguish him from Prowl.

    I take it from the pics that his windows are totally clear, right? I like the painted effect on Prowl's since it conceals his 'bot innards in vehicle mode.

    ur right, the windows are clear blue...doesnt really show much of the insides, but i guess prowl's is better..dunno why they changed that? wat do u mean, trim the horns? doesnt G1 bluestreak also have the same kinda horns that prowl has got?
    EDIT: after a closer look at a cartoon comparison pic, i noticed that bluestreak probably has shorter horns..i think im leaving mine like this..
    good point, though

    Looks as good as I'd hoped for. One question though: is there a reason you have Prowl and Bluestreak's arms like that?

    You have them right but they are rather oddly posed. Nice pics btw.

    The shoulders normally go more up and back. Personal choice, obviously.

    Not only the shoulders.

    But his Feet slide down from the legs so they can pivot and pose and give him ankles.

    i know the feet thing, but i just cant get prowl's feet to come out :D  im sure it makes it much easier to pose...thanks for the comments, though..yeah, i notice the shoulders were a bit oddly posed, i kinda corrected that on my display now, sorry if the pics are a bit weird

    Not really a problem, I was just curious if you preferred them that way. With a review of a repaint, I'm mostly looking at the pictures to see what the colours are like, especially a repaint of a figure I already own. And yes, I'll be buying this one. And Smokescreen if we get one.

    Looks good. Glad to see they painted the missiles, unlike on Prowl. But that's ok, I display Prowl without the missiles anyway for more "cartoon accuracy".

    I love Prowl, except for the black "collar" -- sticks out like a sore thumb to me. Since 'Streak's hood is also black, it blends in and looks about a thousand times better.

    Thanks for the pics!

    I wish the mould was better, but it's Bluestreak, so "SWEET!"

    Silverstreak looks better - think its the fact there is more colour on him, and the blue tinted windows make a helluva difference.
