If you’ve been following this blog at all, which if you have then I probably know you in real life, then you know I’ve been fiending for a Masterpiece Blue Diaclone Bluestreak figure. This is unanimously THE UNICORN of all Generation 1 collecting. The only remotely close second would be blue-chested Swoop. Then you got Red Tracks I guess but who’s counting now? The point is, we now have a somewhat mass release version of one of the greatest enigmas to ever grace Transformers since its inception.
The news post about this I saw near midnight last night almost made me jump out of bed in joyous celebration, since I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this piece since the car brothers were initially made into Masterpieces. The MP-18S Silverstreak toy was such a freakin’ letdown that I figured it was a troll move that we would never really see Bluestreak in the flesh. Those fears are quelled as of today and I’m sorry to admit, but I plan to buy THEM ALL! Sources indicate that this will be a limited run of about 2000, but no convention has been listed as its release platform. Whatever the method, you can bet your tuccus that I will be first in line to preorder this baby!
