Transformer of the Day for March 30, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Gunner
I Never Met a Decepticon I Didn’t Dislike
-Notable Toy: Diaclone (Takara, 1983)

Notes: Like rocket firing Boba Fett, Bluestreak is one of those mythical toys that everyone remembers having, yet was never officially produced. The mistake owes to his appearance in toy inserts as “blue”, even though he was released and portrayed on cartoon in silver. There are rare example of him in Milton Bradley packaging in Europe though, and the brilliant Diaclone original, but too rare to end up in so many kids’ bedrooms.

(Apologies and thanks to robot-japan.com for the toy image.)
