I never thought I'd be able to own this guy. When I saw him for sale on E-bay for about the same amount that I paid for my other Takara reissues I snapped at it.
- First of all, pictures simply don't do him justice. To appreciate Chrome Bluestreak in all his glory you have to see him with your own eyes. Everything except the rubber tires are chromed, including the windows. To say he's shiny is an understatement- in fact, if I were a hiker I'd take Chrome Bluestreak with me on trips to signal helicopters if I got lost. All the details are still there, like the flared fenders and the hood vents. Something I was pleasantly surprised about was the use of die cast metal, since one review I read for the toy stated that it was made entirely of plastic.
- I won't go into detail since there are already plenty of reviews for this mold, but the chrome seems to make the joints much tighter than on the regular model.
- again, every single surface is chrome. It's got sort of a T-1000 look going, which is very cool. The only downside to this toy is the fact that it can get kind of uninteresting to look at due to the fact that the only color present is chrome.
All in all, I'm glad I bought Chrome Bluestreak. It certainly stands out in my collection, even among my other Z-car based figures. If the price is right, buy it.
