For a Blue Bluestreak reissue


Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I've thought about creating an online petition to send to Takara/Ehobby asking for a reissue of Diaclone Bluestreak, aka Blue Bluestreak. Would you be interested in such a reissue? I would, as I like Diaclone varants and don't want to battle on ebay to get a loose one for $300 or a boxed one for $700.

Thanks for the replies. Actually I would also like all the remaining Diaclone color variants of the Honda City R/Turbo, Hilux and Wrecker to be reissued, but I guess it'd be too much to ask for in one petition whereas BB is really the popular one...

Although I doubt it will have much success (considering they could've released him years ago and went instead with the chrome silver), I'd definitely sign on.

 

 

Blue Bluestreak is very high on my want list and although I could afford the e-bay prices, I really refuse to spend that kind of money on a TF.

I got tired of waiting so I made a custom BBS long ago. It's the wrong shade of blue mind you, but that's ok, not much painting was involved thanks to Smoke Screen.

 

I would like more repaints to come around. New characters based on the old molds, like the Desert Hound and others.

 

I have mixed feelings about the Diaclone color remakes, I appreciate the fact I now has a Deep Cover because I never would have found a decent real one in my price range, but all the other ones that they remade I have original ones of. This not only lessens mine somewhat, it also takes away several more possibilities. IE they made A repaint for said year, so that could have been something none of us have ever seen during that time.

 

Black Sunstreaker for one would be a good idea. They have the police car, the red version and classic Yellow. Why not black.

 

Ironhide with head. I designed heads for them long ago. With a retool of the shoulders the arms would be fine the way things are. just twist.

 

They are re-releasing G1 prime with the retool head as part of that I-pod campaign, so maybe they will do so again with some other molds.

 

But with the apparently failed G1 re-release line from TRU, it would see we should not be expecting any more G1's any time soon, cept from possible E-hobby or a toy convention.

I own a Blue Bluestreak and if they do release him, they should make the color of the plastic and the paint the same. Mine is in mint condtion, but the plastic is not the same shade as the paint. Its not just mine, all of them are like that. I know they fixed the paint/plasic with Smokescreen, so they should be able to do it with bluestreak

Do share close up picts. Heck if it's the same blue as with Smokescreen I'll just get metal flake and repaint the body on my custom.

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
