    Good evening everyone.
    I did want to buy the Masterpiece Bluestreak but he was a bit of my price range although I have the MP prowl and do like to mix my characters up a bit so mould brothers don't look too similar. I saw the alternator Smokescreen on ebay and thought with his colour's he is pretty close I could just get him and call him Bluestreak but then got out bid last minute. Then a Silverstreak alternator came up with a broken horn I payed about £7 for him decided I was up for the challenge to get him to resemble how his box art in the 80s depicted him.
    All the art I remember of him he was meant to be this way I still have an old colouring book and pencils with my other memorabilia in the loft.

This is how he came our I still feel the blue is a little on the dark side myself. 20190107_230423.jpg 20190107_230433.jpg 20190107_230814.jpg 20190107_230825.jpg 20190108_000526.jpg 20190108_174415.jpg 20190108_174332.jpg 20190108_174426.jpg 20190108_174321.jpg 20190218_230813.jpg 20190218_230848.jpg 20190218_231038.jpg 20190218_231309.jpg 20190218_231336.jpg 20190218_231535.jpg 20190218_231707.jpg

    Your Ark interior setup is on point! 10/10!

    Also Bluestreak looks great too.

    It's super fun to se the in-progress pics, and watch that Alternator mold get turned into Bluestreak one step at a time. Very cool!
    Turned out really nice too.
