    Kinky. Just some subtle parts swapping here. I was actually disappointed by how light the red and gray was on the Henkei Sliverstreak. I wanted to switch the reds on the Universe and Henkei versions but the pins in both Silverstreak stopped me there. So then I tool Smokescreen's thighs and swapped them with the Henkei Silverstreak and I thought it looked nice with the lighter red and the chrome. Smokescreen now has red thighs which I think looks good on him. I thought I would leave Universe Sliverstreak alone until I noticed that the blue on the waist matched the blue and Smokescreen and so I swapped them. Now all is well. Since I have 2 Silverstreaks, I'll have the Universe one be Sliverstreak and the Henkei one be Bluestreak.

    Not to leave Prowl out. I sprayed his missiles with Krylon Silver.

    The white looks completely out of place on Bluestreak. And adding more red on Smokescreen is crossing over into Universe Smokescreen territory. I went the total show route with mine.

    that's what I did too (not just show but toy as well) I'm just missing blue shoulders on my smokescreen since I have universe figures. The grey doesn't look bad when you have blue elbows, fists, and black forearms though! I still have to address the dumb blue spoiler.
