Streetsmart looks... pretty plain-looking.

Ha! Want to know the funniest thing? I am a big fan of the scalper-killing Lena seller and I actually saw this transformer being sold but thought it was simply Prowl and thought nothing of it :lol:

I hear what you're saying. It is pretty plain.

In robot mode I agree. On the flipside that makes him perfect for aspiring customizers who want to do detailing. Shame mine will remain the Netherlands whereas I'm leaving it.

Yeah, it is kinda plain. Not that Streetwise was ever particularly interesting-looking, but it is a little dull. Doesn't help that the original mold was white too.

For a moment I was wondering "Why is Prime Prowl suddenly news-worthy again?"

Pretty pretty sweet, there...I've just been using BH Prowl himself as a G2-style Streetwise, Galaxy Force Police Gasket as Groove, and GPO Hot Spot as, well, Hot Spot. Kinda wish they'd do a new head sculpt for Ratchet-into-First-Aid, but these are cost-effective repaints, so whatever.

EDIT: And, for the record, "Streetsmart" is a WAY better avoid-the-copyright alternative to "Streetwise" than "Streetstar." Sorry, FunPub and Takara.

Well, G1 Streetstar was originally some other dude than Streetwise.

Even that's debatable as Guard City, of which he is a part, was never shown separated.

And it's trademark :HEADHURTS:

I agree with Sabrblade. This toy is dull and plain. I really hope that someone in the Transtopia section would get this guy and redo this toy entirely. Change the faction or make a new plastic head sculpt for the figure. Give him more paint aps. Make the vehicle mode have the same markings of your local police department. Just so many things that you can do to a blank toy.

While I call it "plain", I wouldn't call it "dull". I do think it looks ordinary and not-special, but not bad or overbearingly boring. He just looks like a Cybertron John Doe or Average Joe, rather than a special person. But not in awful way. Just... a deco of neutral indifference.

for how critical this fandom can be, im quite shocked that theres a pretty generic "meh" verdict on this figure. his robot mode has almost NO paint. thats pretty pathetic. and i thought smokescreen was lacking in paint....

im a huuuge fan of the mold, and would normally but every version of it. but this... makes me sad.

After seeing the combiner treatment the aerialbots got Im not really feeling this set. If they had repainted Hot Spot back to that admittedly non-accurate blue I would have at least gotten that one but as is I will pass. Still plenty of other releases to take my money

It's rather funny that the Transformers Prime Prowl release of this mold makes a way better "G1 Streetwise" than this repaint. It would be interesting to know if these "Protectobots" were meant to be a late Transformers Prime release that unfortunately got delayed until way after that line was officially dead. The complete lack of concern for G1 color choices supports that idea.

Then explain the other set having a Classics-style (Hot Spot) and Movie-style mold (Blades) ;)

Thanks to Tfnd.net we have new in-hand images of Generations Deluxe class Jhiaxus. Jhiaxus is a remold of the new Generations Armada Starscream that was released earlier this year. In the IDW comics Jhiaxus used the reactive armor to change into this new body which explains why he now using the Armada Starscream mold. We've mirrored these images below and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
