I never met a Decepticon I didn’t dislike. Two weeks ago Earthrise Bluestreak was found in the wild at Walgreen’s here in the States, listed on the receipt as an exclusive. Prior to that, we had no official announcement and thought he would be released elsewhere. Last week they dropped online order pages, and today he’s here! This year has been crazy with good figures across multiple lines, and even crazier actually getting them in hand, so this was welcome.
Bluestreak completes the Earthrise Datsun Brothers, even though he is the first of them I have in hand. Smokescreen is mass release at retail (eventually), and Prowl will hit with Ironhide via an Amazon Exclusive 2 Pack. He’s got a great transformation, continuing the simplification of Masterpiece engineering and stuffing it into mainline toys. Paint is sharp, with a matte black on top of the grey plastic and some silver on his face. He’s executed well, everything snaps tight and holds a pose. All in all a great piece, and I can’t wait for his bros to join him.
We’ve run a quick set to show off what he can do. Read on for some select shots or hit the link below for 30+ pics!
