That's not Smokescreen, that's Streak.

Looks like there might be a little clip on the roof that it could possible be inserted into.

Streaker is looking great especially with that clear sun roof effect, a nice way to differetiate (word of the day!) him from his car brothers! ;)

Yes they do (please forgive the use of a TFW pic but it was the clearest head shot I could find, I will do my penance later)

Yesterday I noticed that Prowl eyes are painted light blue, kind of like Hasbro's MP-10. I love that.

Those are quite possibly the best face sculpts I've seen on a TF recently. Wow, these just get better and better the more I see of them. Payday can't come soon enough.

The only minor issue that I have with Bluestreak's head sculpt is that his mouth is close. It would have been nice if he looked like he was talking. I mean he is called Bluestreak for a reason.

I was putting down and bashing this mp Bluestreak ever since I first saw the pics of him but after seeing these in hand photos of him and after receiving mp Prowl and seeing how good he turned out I'm now totally mind changed on Bluestreak. The silver and black looks very good. I just bought him after cancelling several preorders for him during the past couple of months. These mp cars look so so so good in hand. Takara, I give you a standing :APPLAUSE:

Tell me about it! hlj.com takes priority for all my MP purchases from now on. Also, that is $155 AUD, so in USD take another $5 - $10 off.

Shame, I have Wheeljack, Bumblebee and Ultra Magnus pre-ordered with BBTS just to guarantee I get them and when/if HLJ put them up I will just cancel the BBTS pre-orders.

TFsource was reacting to BBTS's announcements so they don't lose out on pre-orders. I don't believe Takara has officially announce wheeljack, bumblebee, or Ultra Magnus. That is my understanding anyway.

Congrats. :) I've got a somewhat smaller POL, so I'm waiting for some more stuff to drop ito it before hitting 'ship' on it. I can wait, though.

Just got Prowl and Bluestreak, and they are great!

Didn't like the way hlj.com packaged them though... There was zero packaging materials between the box and the figures :BANG_HEAD: Going to keep my Smokescreen pre-order, but if that is shipped the same way I'll be going back to BBTS. The higher price will be worth the piece of mind.

Takara Tomy's official webpage for Transformers Masterpiece MP-19 Smokescreen is now live. Smokescreen is of course a redeco/remold of the previously released Masterpiece Datsun Fairlady Z molds complete with new shoulder weapons. Check out the official images mirrored below. MP-19 Smokescreen is slated for a December release.

I was looking forward to Smokescreen the most but now I think that Streak is the looker of the trio. Still happy to have Smokescreen though.

I think Smokescreen has the sexiest vehicle mode of the 3, but Streak has the sleekest robot coloration - he just looks good. I'll probably feel differently once I have him in hand, but Smokescreen's face looks slightly derpy (despite being slavish to G1).

Bluestreak does look the best of all three in both modes. And Bot-mode wise Smokescreen looks the dopiest. His head never appealed to me, nor did his shoulder cannons, here here his chest kinda ruins the look of the bot, makes him fatter and clunkier.

Bluestreak, just looks like a neat robot, his alt-mode kibble isn't as noticeable as with Prowl or Smokescren.

It's really great to see more photos of Smokescreen. But when are we going to start seeing some photos, or even just silhouettes, of Wheeljack and Bumblebee??? It was almost 6 months ago that they were announced, and since then we haven't seen or heard ANYTHING about them at all....

They haven't been officially announced by Takara yet, it's only some retailers opening pre-emptive preorders. I'm guessing they'll wait until after the release of Smokescreen to make more announcements, since the Fan Choice poll has been the main focus of their MP marketing at the moment.

Smokescreen does look derpy in robot mode, but that's how he looks. I'm still getting him but he'll probably be the one I keep in vehicle mode out of all three. I do hope he still has the standard shoulder cannons and they're just folded out of the way, however, because those big tall ones look seriously silly, albeit cartoon-accurate. Can't wait to get him regardless. I already have some funds sitting in my Paypal account waiting. :D

man i SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!

i'm super excited to complete the trio.

i really hope we get a look at magnus, bumblebee, or wheeljack once smokescreen is released.. it's weird that once smokescreen comes out we won't have any photos of upcoming masterpiece figures.

for the longest time it's just felt like we've constantly had figures made, pictured, and waiting in line for release. after smokescreen.. everything seems up in the air. hell, for all we know bumblebee and wheeljack might not be real (though i'm sure they are)

I wouldn't start worrying just yet. If G2 Sideswipe releases and still nothing... that's probably a good time to freak out.
