After months of waiting we finally have our first look at Takara Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-19 Smokescreen. The figure is a significantly retooled version of the MP-17 Prowl mold, new vehicle front clip, new shoulders, new shoulder weapons, etc. Smokescreen is expected to release in December.

Colorful and looks somewhat like a NASCAR stock car. Might just have to get it.

Nice, more paint and more plastic. Most likely I'm a go with Smokescreen over Prowl cause he just looks like a more costly figure. But im not going to make my decession now. I have to contemplate some more.

Yes! I wasn't too sure about how Smokescreen would come out, his colour scheme has potential to look really gaudy and he was never my fave looking of the 3 in the 'toon (though I still really like his G1 toy, and still wish I had one) He doesn't look gaudy at all, he looks...classic... :D

Does he have a new or re-tooled head? Can't tell from the image. But technically he should have if he wants to be cartoon accurate. Not that I mind either way :grin:

I just noticed that the wheels are on the top of the shoulders and not behind the shoulders. I hope that doesn't mess up the figures articulation. And also since they placed the wheels on him like that it make his arm bicepe tricepe area look skinny and kind of funny looking. He has no arm robotic muscles.

I'm not going to be the one to say he is suffering a little from (s.l.s) skinny limb syndrome.

I'm leaning towards thinking it is, and would really be surprised if it wasn't. The new fender and the wording on the car make him look really lovely. He could easily speed straight through an episode of Dukes of Hazard (the original show :D )

Not sure why, but I like this mold much more as Smokescreen than Prowl. =P~

I glad the got the shoulder canons right. That feature really sets the mold apart for me.

As a rule I don't collect the same mold twice. But these three are looking so great I may just have to go ahead and break that rule. I've got a reissue G1 Prowl, legends Bluestreak and no Smokescreen. I've only got Ghost Starscream as my masterpiece seeker but I may need to build up my Decepticon MP army anyway if they keep releasing these fantastic molds and redecos.

I've been dragging my feet on Masterpieces waiting for deals and paying for it with my soul. Not often but sometimes I hold out too long. Not the case with Fort Max(who, in his own right, is a masterpiece but not part of the MP line) but I still need Sideswipe (and a new Sunstreaker). Happy to see Soundwave coming around again and just waiting for MP Jazz, MP Wheeljack, MP... the rest of the first season G1 cast. Don't make me list them all.

Those shoulder launchers look supremely dorky, but it's show-accurate. I like it! The car mode is especially nice. Out of the three he might be the one that gets to stay in vehicle mode.

I really like the direction that the MP line has been going. I really dragged my feet in protest in the beginning with the re-launch of MP10 Prime. But I am glad they did. I have not been disappointed since MP10.

I like how they even retooled Smokescreen's gun. A lot of thought went into the details.

I knew the wait was worth it. Couldn't bring myself to buy the other two knowing that Smokescreen would look so much better.......and i was right.

I'd be interested if he were a generic deluxe from Hasbro, but I'm not paying that kind of money for completion's sake. Just owning MP Prowl's good enough for me.

He's too big to be a Deluxe. He's more of a short Voyager.
