    Never understood why Bluestreak didn't have any blue in him in the original G1 cartoon.

    I started this custom w/ the intent of making Wheeljack, but after I got into it I decided Bluestreak would be better. I cast a new face from a power rangers toy and used sculpt to form the rest of the head. His hand rifle is from a ko GIJoe toy... used to be a speargun. The missiles are the original movie Bumblebee missiles, I just ground them down to make them pointy. I don't plan on eating them so I figured it was ok. :) 

    Please comment, I love reading the replies!

    Bluestreak was called bluestreak because, as any autobody customizer and car enthusiast knows, when in the desert in a silver/Chrome car it reflects the blue sky and as the car moves at top speeds (as they often do in deserts where you can see cops miles away) it looks like a blue streak.

    sarcasm ftw

    awesome idea and well executed. i like the old car look you gave to him. just right. but his head looks like something that resembles Bluestreak's head. why don't you just take one from any universe 350z mold and paint it? good job, Z
