    As much as I'm impressed by the Henkei classic line, this is the one and only Henkei that I'm disappointed in.

    He's fuckin in black streaks instead of the blue streaks!?? The rest of the Henkei seems to have the color accurate, but this guy. I think Takara-Tomy could have used the correct toon accurate color for Bluestreak!

    You do know that the name "Bluestreak" has absolutely nothing to do with colors?


    Its an expression regarding his speech habits, i.e. "Talking a blue streak."

    Was Bluestreak ever, anywhere in the cartoon depicted as BLUE? [Can't say about the comics, never read them]. He's a nice shade of gray and darker dray which is perfectly fine in this toy form. I think you either mixed up your colours or worded your sentences terribly.

    Yeah. Bluestreak was never blue save for the Diaclone figure I think.

    And his name's not even "Bluestreak" in Japan. It's just Streak, so there's no reason whatsoever to make him blue anyway.

    The catalog that came with the 1984 TFs showed Bluestreak in blue/silver.

    Was the Diaclone not blue either?

    So the only blue Bluestreak is from a catalog picture...

    The blue/silver was mythical....it is unclear on whether it is true or not. I am fine with both the Hasbro and Henkei versions being silver/black or dark gray.
