G1 pre-rub Bluestreak MISB

I am in awe and shock and other descriptions of delight I find difficult to articulate now - because I am at a loss for words.

Please pardon me if this post comes across as somewhat gibberish like...


I received a package from a buddy today expecting it to contain a few Raiden parts that I'm missing, but these parts came in a packing box. The declaration said "toy car". I thought it very strange and curious, but did not have much time to think about today due to my extremely busy workload.

I came home, had dinner, showered and then sat down to open the package. When I saw it inside the bubble wrap, I said out loud "No, it cannot be. No, it cannot be."
That changed to "Oh my god. It is. Oh my god."

I stared at it for 30 mins before I regained my senses (a little).

I was gifted a G1 pre-rub Bluestreak MISB.

I was given this piece that is so close to heart by a good friend and buddy. Of all the G1 pieces that I may one day decide to get MISB, a Bluestreak would be at the very pinnacle of my list. He is one of the select few G1 pieces that has kept a very steady place in my heart since 1984.

I'm still in disbelief. My good friend is too generous. I'm very delighted but I don't know what to do, I don't know why I deserve it either. I am just very happy.

E said that I should 'appreciate it as a gift from one good friend to another' and I will.

I started taking photos uncontrollably... and I'm posting a lot of them up here...

Please enjoy, one of my absolute favourite G1 characters and toys...

A very heartfelt thank you to, you, my good buddy, [anonymous].

(I would undoubtedly write more about this, but right now, I am just enjoying this slice of childhood once more...

One of the key things that sets Bluestreak apart from many other Transformers, his awesome box art

Seeing these 3 items together, it's beyond awesome... my mind is going into statis lock...


  1. HD, That is one Immaculate looking Bluestreak, Truly Beautiful and one of my faves too!.. (But then i love all 1984 Tf's)

  2. That is amazingly pristine for being 27 years old. Looks case fresh, you have a very good friend there!

  3. Thanks guys!

    @ Sharky: I love all the 1984 'bots and 'cons too, but somehow Ravage and Bluestreak really stands out for me. This is like a dream come true, without knowing that I've been dreaming it and such a pleasant surprise too.

    @ Arkvander: Yes, it does look casefresh. Now I'm wondering where or when he acquired it for it to be in such immaculate condition. Yes, he is a good friend and very generous too, I am very honoured!

  4. That is SWEET. Love the Diaclone Z also.

  5. Wow, yes, sweet MISB Bluestreak!
