It seems Takara's penchant for toon accuracy is not letting up. Not only will we be getting an MP+ release of Wheeljack release but come late July 2019, you will be able to get your hands on a cartoon accurate deco of Masterpiece Bluestreak titled MP-18+ Streak.

This will be a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive in Japan which means that no other Japanese retailer will be selling it (so no Amazon Japan). It will surely be available at import shops with either a Hasbro Asia release or a full on North American Hasbro release, with Hasbro's English language all black slip covers. It would be the exact same toy inside of course. In Japan, this toy will sell for ¥9,180, which is usually equivalent to around a $90 price point in the west.

Aside from the more toon accurate deco, we also have extra faces and extra effect parts as you can see in the images below. Enjoy!

The effect parts and new faces make this actually appealing to me even though I already have the mold as the all silver version, well played, Takara, well played.

DO WANT! Man, that looks great! Already love the mold and it's nice to see they've done more than just repaint it. Definitely going on my pre-order list. I wonder why Prowl didn't get this kind of treatment? Looking forward to Smokescreen+ now.

I'm surprised it didn't come with the big launchers. This is interesting that the head is remolded for a swappable face gimmick, something tells me we might get ANOTHER Prowl with this new gimmick.

Prowl MP-17++ with swappable jerk face and a table to flip over! :lol:

What?? Takara! :shock:


Why didn't they do this with Sideswipe Plus, too??

I already like the original MP Blustreak. But this is really cool. And probably irrelevant since it's a TT Mall exclusive.

You're kidding but I can see it happen

I am impressed by how great this new Bluestreak looks. The deco is so clean. Takara really did a nice job, and it’s presumably fantastic news for anyone who doesn’t already have Bluestreak. If I only had Silverstreak, or blue Bluestreak, Instead of only owning regular Bluestreak, I would love to pick him up. Especially with those effect parts, which is such an exciting addition to MPs.

If Takara started selling just effect parts, I would be 100% in. Different rays, blasts, and bursts. I’d love a missle circus effect for the Seekers missle pods.

I don't normally go for the anime accurate deco's but there is something about this I like. The face/head sculpt is really cool and those Siege weapon effects are tops ;)^

The overall deco is just really pleasing.

The shoulder cannons already built into the figure are the more show-accurate ones, as is the goal of this + version.

Damn it now I gotta get this figure when I already have the original and blue masterpiece Bluestreaks. Think they’ll make a Prowl with smoke coming out of his mouth?

Of course, a super cartoon-accurate Bluestreak would have zero wheels in robot-mode, like Optimus Prime. But I understand why he has them.

Wish Red Alert wasn't the first bot to get a PLUS edition. Maybe then the series would have evolved enough to retool his shoulders and arms. #JusticeForRedAlert [-( :WHISTLE: :))

I assume Smokescreen will be the last one to get a (cartoon) PLUS release. (Unless they actually want to redo something big like Soundwave just to remove some paint apps and make his feet dark.)

I only have the all Silver Bluestreak, so this is definitely a must buy. He just looks gorgeous and the effect parts are a really nice addon, even though I probably won't use them much. Shame it's a TT Mall exclusive though, so no discount. But at least AE is carrying him, so I'm not stuck double importing him

I'm all for it. I am such a sucker for anything cartoon accurate. So those blast effects are how they appeared in the cartoon too?!

I think for that it would need more thn a retool, it would need a new transformation, so a 2.0 version.

For being the anime design, I am really shocked by how much I really really like the looks of this. The head is a dead ringer for Andrew Griffith Prowl in RiD/TF, and the colors are pretty ace.

I am considering him, he looks really nice

Wow, in that reflection you can see how badly dinged up the paint is. Never go off-roading in a Datsun 280ZX kid. :lol:

Hope that's a prototype as the side mirror is also missing paint.
