    Smokescreen is a straight up repaint of silverstreak but he is better than i thought.

    The only problem i have is the numbers show too much white(a red background would have been nicer)but overall a good attempt until we see henkei.

    I only just picked up Prowl this week, and you already have all three.

    Anyways, I love the bright colors.

    thanks for the review, it does look a very nice repaint, but ur right about the numbers standing out too much... maybe the henkei one will fix that.. i only hope they dont totally chrome the weapon

    Looks good. I think the Universe version of Smokescreen will do fine.

    Looking good!

    Prowl, Silverstreak and Smokescreen - the Autobot answer to the Seekers indeed!

    ...now all we need is a mass-release Thundercracker with a different paintjob than the Botcon one.

    And all I need is a Skywarp to complement my meager Seeker army.

    I like it, I also agree about the white behind the numbers. Too much white. I know G1 had square number badges, but I think oval would help it blend better, y'know take away some of the white!:thumbs2:

    Looks awesome! Can't wait to get my hands on one. I'm also very interested in seeing what the Henkei version will look like.

    While i'll wait for images of the Henkei version of Dinobot for ol Screen i'll just buy the universe one and a second Prowl to get me some more fitting parts from and paint other parts already on Screen to get him looking right.

    Looks great, and he'll definitely find a place in my collection. The coloration doesn't bother me one bit. I still need to get Silverstreak, but as he just showed up in local stores, I shouldn't really have too much trouble getting ahold of him eventually.

    I expect I'll get Smokescreen more to "fill a hole in the line" than because I want it much. The Prowl/Silverstreak mold is a merely OK mold, and the Smokescreen colors are a merely OK scheme.

    Looks great. I would get it in a second, but I'm not going to risk a complex deco like that in this era of sticky paint. Silverstreak, Ironhide, and Animated Soundwave could be fixed with a simple can of spray paint. Prowl was a lost cause due to the door deco. I imagine Smokescreen would be equally impossible to spray paint.

    I still think they totally boned the deco.

    really hoping he comes out in Henkei and they do their own mask...

    While there is no doubt that I'll buy this, I definitely think the color scheme could have been handled better. It's sort of all over the place, and just looks gaudy. A thinner white stripe along the side of the car, black forearms instead of red, no yellow on the spoiler, blue shoulders, and a gold instead of yellow crest would have done wonders for this figure, I think. Hopefully this one improves with the Henkei treatment.

    Ah well. Still a guaranteed buy, so who am I to complain?
