    I argue that remolding was a waste of time from the get go, and that this is one case where it would have been ideal to have straight repaints like the Seekers.

    Well, technically Smokescreen isn't actually the same car as Prowl or Streak. Prowl and Streak are 280zx while Smokescreen is a 280zx Turbo with additional race modifications and the Electramotive race livery. In fact the G1 toy isn't even completely accurate. The real car sports a wide rear fender according to IMSA requirements and the body work had flared, squarer rear wheel wells. The toy does include the spoiler though it should be bigger.

    I do agree that at least the spoiler should be not there in the non Smokescreen or Barricade takes, but it doesn't bother me too much.

    Just to geek out a bit, Don Devendorf won the 1982 IMSA GT Championship series in the GTO category in the car we know as G1 Autobot Smokescreen.

    Hmmmm, interesting in that it looks like this figure is using the hood/chest from Smokescreen.

    So is this the same exact copy from the start of the thread? I’m curious / hopeful that they’ll paint the hands blue, as they did last-minute with Earthrise Prime.

    Sorry, you missed the window. You know how short these things are now. It was approximately half an hour, around a fortnight ago, just outside the factory gate, off the back of a truck...

    It was a joke, and also a dig at the theft involved in us knowing about this. There aren't any orders open because Hasbro hasn't announced the toy. Could be months away.

    Mind you, the way orders come and go so very quickly these days was floating about my mind as I typed...

    I am probably going to swap blue Bluestreak’s head with Siege Prowl’s head make it my unique version of Autobot Prowl.
