Bluestreak is a repaint of Transformers Generations Deluxe Prowl.  Read my reviews of the previous versions of this mold: Dead End, Brake-Neck, Streetwise, Prowl, Streetwise (Unite Warriors), Smokescreen, Dead End (G2), Brake-Neck (G2), Dust Up

It’s about fucking time we got a blue Bluestreak, but as usual, Fun Publications is just a little too slow to get it right.  Bluestreak looks amazing in robot mode.  Unfortunately, in vehicle mode, he still retains Prowl’s light bar.  Hasbro did the same thing with Smokescreen.  No matter what color you paint this mold, it’s still a police car.  This needed to happen four or five years ago using the Universe Deluxe Bluestreak mold, or they could have used the Dead End mold with Prowl’s head as Hasbro should have done with Smokescreen.  It’s an otherwise beautiful toy ruined by an obvious flaw.

Grade: B

Thanks for reading!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
