That does look pretty. Although if I was going to pick one of the Datsuns (because I have none) I'd have to go with Prowl. And also I still have Alternators Silverstreak, which I'm going to hang on to as my *Streak on account of history and memories...
Could this then be the rumoured "next" Masterpiece after Star Sabre and before... er... whoever's coming next..?
Does Tomy have a webstore like Bandai do? Because if they do this would be the sort of thing that I would have thought would be ideal for it.
I'll be honest, this does surprise me - the number of runs we've had at Bluestreaks without getting Diaclone homage schemes (compared to some of the Diaclone derived stuff) made me figure it was a "when the sky falls" kind of thing.
Can't believe they made so few. Was Exhaust a limited run as well?
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
Alternative theory #1: They didn't feel certain that this would sell in the same numbers as the other MP's as they felt it was a much more "out there" scheme than they had tried previously with it not having a track record in Transformers in the same way.
Alternative Theory #2: They were targeting this at the domestic market more than the international one and they set the number of pieces at what they thought the domestic market would bear.
