For Giftsmas 2013 my lovely wife gifted me with Masterpiece Streak. While not necessarily my favourite character, the Nissan 280ZX Fairlady Z Turbo is my favourite car, and Bluestreak’s colours are my favourite colour combination on the actual real life car.

I have wanted Masterpiece Wheeljack from the moment he was announced. He was always one of my favourite Autobots – I loved that he was essentially their own Dr Frankenstein.
