Where o’ where can the Protectobots be? Well, they are slowly showing up here and there. My first Protectobot find was Streetwise. Based off of what is supposed to be a retool of Dead End. This is almost all redone for this figure, from the shell of the car to most of the major parts of the robot body. It is funny to think of him as a retool since the two look nothing alike.
He will be/has been reused as both Prowl (which has been released) and Streetwise, soon to be out.
He comes with a triple barrel shot gun, which is a pretty good weapon for a police figure. I always think of Streetwise as more of a Protect and Serve kind of police, as opposed to Prowl, which I think of more a SWAT sort of cop.
I like the look of Streetwise a lot. The vehicle mode is well done. The robot mode has all of the necessary articulation. Overall, a good figure for me to find in the Protectobot kick-off. I am definitely looking to get the rest and form Defensor.
