Masterpiece 18S Silverstreak – nominated for biggest bum-out of 2014

A now for something completely useless…

When the Datsun brothers came out, Bluestreak was far and away the aesthetic winner of the bunch.  The evenness of the alt mode, the muted color scheme, and the fact that a somewhat C-list character was getting the big bad masterpiece treatment elevated its likability above the fan-favorite Prowl. When it was announced that MP-18S would be released later down the line,  a fever raced through the fandom.  Just a year earlier, a special release of the Lamborghini Masterpiece mold had yielded a rare Diaclone-origin Tigertrack in yellow.  Diaclone figures were getting the Masterpiece treatment!  TakaraTomy is known for their stubborness to keep tradition going so the release of a special Datsun, especially Bluestreak, could only mean one thing: Blue Bluestreak!  THE UNICORN ITSELF!

Is that what I think it is?! A unicorn in the wild!? Nope, it’s just a custom by TFW2005 user pumpkingonzo

I have done my own private retcon in my head and the silver version of Bluestreak will always be dubbed Silverstreak, until we get a real Blue Bluestreak.  So to see today that MP18-S is actually going to be the real Silverstreak really pulls at some painful strings inside my body.  This is really a big shame.  The only difference is a few paint apps on the hood of the car.

I’m just so annoyed by this that I think I’m going to let this blog post fall flat.

TL;DR: MP18-S is a huge letdown and it sucks.

Masterpiece 16 and 17 – Prowl and Smokescreen. Where’s Silverstreak?

Masterpiece Transformers Prowl and Smokescreen

More Autobot car brothers coming our way, thanks TakaraTomy!

Today Big Bad Toy Store broke the news about the next set of Masterpiece Transformers, which look to follow suit of Sideswipe and Red Alert: Prowl and Smokescreen!  Also mentioned recently was a repaint of Sideswipe into Tigertracks.  I guess we can expect a Deep Cover or Clampdown really soon as well.

So what else could this mean for future Masterpieces?  Of course Silverstreak… or maybe even, just maybe… a real BLUE Streak…
