    Just found this from the same source as the Ares combiner prototypes. Seems to be a police car transformer, duel cannons in car mode... Steetwise? And it NOT the Star Cats toy!

    I'll take a Mustang as a new Streetwise if I must, though I think like a '95 Camaro is closer to G1---Streetwise was very sleek up front, not boxy.

    Oh sweet this is exactly what I was hoping TFC would make next, imo Defensor is a perfect choice for their designs/engineering. Here's to hoping this is in fact what it appears to be.

    I kinda wish the Starcats one had seen daylight, but this will be even better!

    ....though this might hurt my FirstAid sales LOL!

    Wasn't Streetwise a 1984 Nissan 300ZX? I've always thought it was.

    But color me excited for a Defensor. I've always loved the guy. Built in combiner head in Hot Spot FTW.

    At this point, this hasn't be confirmed right? I want me a Defensor, but I don't want to start getting excited. That would complete S2 classics for me.

    oh yay another TFC combiner that will require an additional $100 in upgrades just to make it look they way it should. Easy pass I'll wait for a real company to produce it

    Nope he was based on the Z31 1st gen 300zx produced from 1983-1989https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7081/7279861500_b957254120_z.jpg

    None the less, if this is really meant to be streetwise its a VERY easy pass, to go from a z car to a pos mustang f that.

    Streetwise transforms into a Nissan 300ZX Turbo police car

    http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Streetwise_(G1)

    Now, given that I've never even seen one of them, and that we have Mustang police cars here in my state, I'm psyched. Curious to see how they color him.

    huh, when i typed in 1980 240sx ( i looked before i sounded stupid and still sounded stupid) and the pic linked about came up and i just assumed they were they same car since it looked like streetwise. but when i searched it again it showed cars with rounded headlights that looked more liked datsuns.

    Learned somthing new

    Nice choice in combiner, lets hope they stay away from bean stalk legs, boxing gloves hands and upgrade kits "oh my"
