    Smokescreen looks amazing, Bluestreak a bit dull in comparison.

    How does Smokescreen's 2 shoulder guns attach on vehicle mode? It doesn't look like the 2 intakes on his hood depress in to hold them (like how Sideswipe's roof has the hidden gun slot). Is it magnets? Cause in robot mode, it looks like they attach via the back, like was mentioned, to the struts that normally hold the twin cannons on Prowl and Bluestreak

    Man these look really great. I just can't break my rule of owning only one mold and not having any attachment to the characters. There's nothing to justify the price of triple-dipping :(

    Wasn't going to preorder Smokescreen originally, but I'm glad I did :D

    Damn, so gorgeous... both of them. Since the stamped numbers on their hoods tell us they're just samples, I too really hope that Bluestreak's hands are silver again for the final production run. Glad to see his red head crest finally looks the way it should in these pics, though.

    If you look at the top down image of the car, there's 2 small square holes in that black bar under the windscreen and just above the air intakes. Those don't appear to be on Prowl or Bluestreak either. I bet that's where the guns clip into for car mode.

    The only problem with these guys is that they look so good in both modes it's hard to decide how to display them.

    QFT. Luckily they TRANSFORM! So we can alternate which mode to display them in.

    Or you can do like some people (not me) and buy 2 of each to display both modes at the same time.

    This is why I'm really hoping Hasbro & TRU work on completing this newly branded MP line they have going.

    So true. This is the only time I really wish I could have 2, one for alt and one for bot. This mold is that good looking to me and my Prowl hasn't even arrived today and I think I love this mold that much. So awesome.

    yeah they look good but i sure hope the hands on streak are silver and not black the black doesnt look good at all but a minor complaint as they can be painted at least we are getting all of them and i look forward to a blue bluestreak prowl arrived from rbk today he is freaking sweet the transformation for his feet is really cool

    I can't over how ridiculous Smokescreen's shoulder cannons look. Cartoon-accuracy be damned; they should have ditched the trapezoidal pieces so they lie flush to his hood, similar to Prowl and Bluestreak.

    And did they lighten the blue on him? It looks darker on the box, and IMO it's a bit better that way.

    ^ I kinda dig Smokey's cannons, especially in car mode. Gives a Twisted Metal / Death Race kinda vibe to me.

    Agreed! Throw in x2 Prowl too, with Prowl and Streak each receiving two of their bonus shoulder rockets courtesy of Amazon.jp. :D 

    The Datsun bros. will easily be my favorite of the new MP releases. Well, at least until MP-20 Wheeljack (my fave G1 Bot as a kid) comes along.

    They already made a Smokescreen for you in the classics line. This is Masterpiece. So there is no damning of cartoon accuracy.

    If Smokescreen comes out as US retail for a reasonable price, I'll get it. Other then that, neat for the rest of you.
