    Don't even know if anyone cares but i just received my two today and the License plate reads Camshaft now. I know it's not a big thing but just thought if anyone cared i'd throw it out there.

    Well thats good...almost a tiny motivation for me to buy it, but I still doubt I will. I really need to ease up on the TFs.

    Just transformed him, not that bad actually. I was gonna put a repainted grimlock head on him but the darn head peg is way too big. I'd say he's alot better than ricochet and Rollbar personally.

    Is this a running change (i.e. early shipments have "BLU STRK" license plates, whereas later ones read "CAMSHAFT") or a "pre-release in packaging sample vs. release version" case?

    Well these two were the first the dealer recieved. So it's possible that some stores may be getting earlier shipments with the blu strk plate. If that's the case there going to be a real rarity. I would suggest to anyone who finds camshaft with the blustrk plate not to open it for a while till we know how rare they are.

    Holy @#$%!!! You got robbed!

    I found Alt Camshaft from Walmart Wednesday night for $19.99. And since the packaging was a little damaged, I talked a mgr into giving me a 10% discount, since I'm gonna take it out of the package anyway.

    His gun's a little weird-looking, but I'm pretty pleased with him otherwise. Nice head sculpting and paint aps.

    That's $39.99 for two of them. With a retail price of $19.99, he got robbed for $0.01

    The horror!

    I dunno. I haven't opened Prowl yet.

    Didn't have any choice with Camshaft/Bluestreak--it was already kinda open.

    I wish his car parts were painted like Silverstreak and Grimlock, otherwise he still looks pretty cool.
