The Last Transformers I Will Ever Buy-Masterpiece Bluestreak and Takara Legends LG-10 Arcee

I've had a great run collecting Transformers but it's time to move on. After much contemplation, I've decided I want to finish off my collection with two pieces so memorable, so truly special that they will be worthy of the honor of being my very last Transformers. They will be figures that when I look at them on the shelf I will cry because they embody the emotional significance of the end of my Transformers journey. They will remind me forevermore of how wonderful my life was made over the past 31 years by Hasbro's special recipie of little robotic puzzle people made from plastic and metal and rubber. They will be the capstones of my Transformers collection and my rite of passage into a true manhood where I collect only old Macross models from Bandai. And so I have decided Masterpiece Bluestreak and Takara Arcee will be the absolutely very last Transformers I ever buy.


Can there be any greater milestones in the history of Transformers collecting than the release of these two never before produced holy grails? For thirty years the appearance of a Diaclone blue hooded Fairlady in the 1984 Hasbro pack in catalog has haunted collectors who never found one in Transformers packaging. For almost as long collectors have wanted a figure of the Princess Leia of The Transformers The Movie-Arcee. Now finally after all these decades I get to own figures of these mythical legends of Transformers collecting. There can be no better ending to my Transformers story than owning these unicorns, these previously thought impossible fantasies. I'm as sure that I'm done with Transformers as I am certain that that no better versions of Bluestreak or Arcee will ever be made. So that is why, with great pride and humility, I have decided Masterpiece Bluestreak and Takara Legends LG-10 Arcee are the very last Transformers I will ever buy.

Bluestreak was the first Autobot I ever had. just a couple of months ago I spotted a Datsun 28Z with that exact same color scheme as seen in this posting at a local Burger King. but as far as the toy goes I know there was also an all grey version as well. by the way guess who's birthday it was earlier this week http://romspaceknightart.blogspot.com/2015/11/happy-birthday-bill-mantlo.html

How does LG10 campare in size to Masterpiece Autobots in robot form?

Her head only comes up to the mid-chest area of the Autobot cars. She looks too small to be in scale with the MP robots, kind of like a kid sister standing next to her big brothers instead of a fellow warrior.
