Autobase Aichi has shared a screengrab from the TakaraTomy Mall website showing MP-18B Bluestreak dated for August 29th and priced at 7,992 Yen! Named "Bluestreak" to differentiate him from the standard version of the character who in Japan is simply named "Streak," this Diaclone-colors figure is of course a recolor of Streak, himself remolded from Masterpiece Prowl.

A few reports have started circulating that Toys R Us in Times Square has stocked MP Bluestreak's Hasbro release. This is notable both because this item was supposed to debut at SDCC at the shared Toys R Us/Entertainment Earth booth, and because thereafter it was said it would be available online only. Whether this is the product of a shipping error or other fluke remains to be seen, but this may be more widely available than expected, at the same $70 price point Prowl sold at. If it's of interest to you, then happy hunting!
Coming to us via TFSource's Facebook, we've got another round of stock photography for the G2-styled Masterpiece Bumblebee release from Dengeki Hobby. While it does highlight very well that gold paint is no substitute for actual chrome plating in recreating the G2 toy's finish, it still gets the idea across decently.

Planet Iacon has posted a few quick shots of the G2-based version of Masterpiece Bumblebee. While not chrome like its original counterpart, the metallic paint does kind of get the idea across. In these shots we get a good look at the figure wearing the used-once jetpack from the cartoon, and the toy-style faceplate, formerly a retailer exclusive accessory part. Keep reading to have a look!
ToysRUs has issued a press release touting its Comic-Con International 2015 exclusives, and there's one Transformers item on the list: Masterpiece Bluestreak! As with many of TRU's Comic-Con items, Bluestreak is only an "exclusive" in that this will be the first time he is up for sale; the figure should be available in ToysRUs stores later in the year.
