Enter Masterpiece Smokescreen! One of the most highly anticipated Masterpiece figures to date, figure includes his shoulder mounted cannons, rifle and minty fresh Datsun/Fairlady Z car alt mode we all know and love! Picture is a placeholder only.
"Super Smokescreen Amazing Kai alpha 0"
Ok I could not right enough cool adjectives in the title to equal my enthusiasm for this Masterpiece.
All the wonderfulness of the Prowl mold is augmented slightly to make this incredible representation of the G1 classic Smokescreen and hits the nail on the head.
Pros: The Colors are perfect and the paint job is so gorgeous you ll find your self keeping him in alt to show off all that beautiful rich red and vibrant blue. Truly makes prowl seem way to monotone. The new bumber and spoiler do not detract from either mode and are executed perfectly and evokes every bit of the G1 classic character.
In transformation it all gets even better. the spoiler does not feel like its even there in bot mode and the while the new grill adds a bit more heft upstairs its completely in line with the cartoon.
The Head Sculpt is my favorite piece it is the type accurate representation that we got with prowl and streak but follows the cartoon so exact you got to love the lack of detail. It is smokescreen 1000%. I only wish prior head sculpts were this show accurate ( looking at you prime )
The odd part is I did not realize how iconic the shoulder cannons actually were with him and a piece that I was going to leave boxed is entirely essential for him to look like him.
Possibly best of the three in tis mold especially with the neat shoulder change for the wheels.
CONs: this is the same grip with all 3 the review mirror piece folding in could be better engineered as it seems forced no matter how you transform it.
hollow feet I do not mind but the clear window piece off the back of the ankle should of transformed into the cavity to streamline him more.
Hands also need a better sculpt for the cost of this figure
Last plastic wheels versus rubber wheels. Always better to go with rubber ones.
Those are as much as I can nit pick and none of them really detract from the figure
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
