Transformers Masterpiece MP-19+ Smokescreen Anime Colors
Just like the other MP Autobot Cars, Smokescreen’s weapon can be adjusted to be attached in vehicle mode.
Requires opening the hatchback first though.
Connection port flipped out.
The Autobots’ diversionary tactician, Smokescreen is a charmer, an excellent cheat and a clever liar, using his skills for the good of the Autobot cause. Often outsmarting and outthinking his opponents rather than engaging them head on.
He comes with his disruptor rifle, which can scramble the circuits of his targets, rendering them useless in combat.
Unlike the previous release, his Jammer Launchers are now “built in” into the figure, and can be stored inside his vehicle mode.
The Jammer Launchers are now smaller compared to the previous release, which required removing the launchers before Smokescreen can be transformed.
Smoke effects are included.
The smoke effect can be split into two pieces, to recreate Smokescreen generating the smoke in robot mode, as seen in the episode “Microbots”.
The smoke does not plug in anywhere in both robot and vehicle modes though.
In the cartoons, Smokescreen releases magnetized smoke, this causes his enemies caught in the plume to be blinded or be unable to see or function properly, leaving them vulnerable to attack or allow the Autobots to escape.
Overall, I love it! It’s a huge improvement over the original in terms of show accuracy. The colors are much brighter and the new headsculpt really matches the cartoon model exactly! The only real downside is that this figure is a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive, so it is a bit higher in terms of SRP compared to the original mass retail release, but not crazy high like the SRP of Sunstreaker or Hound. I really recommend getting this figure if you’ve already gotten the other + Anime Color versions of the MP Autobots.
