Autobot Smokescreen

Alternators Smokescreen

Smokescreen is a good example of an Alternator, and one of my favorites. The Transform is fun and relatively easy to get back into a nice tight car mode. All the graphics, detailed lighting and rubber wheels make him look like you spend far more than 20$. Of course now a days they tend to go for 2 to 3 times as much, a few sell for even more. Unfortunately this line was canceled around the time the first Transformers live action movie came out. They didn't want so many lines competing with each other, and today they would have a hard time making these for a 20$ price point. A least the "Classics" line will return to give fans realistic G1 inspired toys. It is great time to be a Transformers fan.

Yes, car mode is pretty hot!

Alternators have great detail, with seats, dashes, shifters, as well as opening doors, hoods and sometimes even trunks. All 4 of Smokescreens door open, truly Alternators are adult collectables with everything they put into them. Transformations on Alternators are often complex but not usually too hard, the problem is things like doors and hoods may be very difficult to line back up.

Here I've armed him with some military spec weapons. This has been done before by others but I have always wanted to get some guns and arm a bot up myself. I happened upon a set of guns at Toys R'Us on clearance so here we go.

Ready to take on some Con's.
