    I did a search and couldn't find anything else... but didn't the original in-box pics of Alt Camshaft have a "BLUSTRK" license plate?

    Mine has a Rhode Island license plate that says "CAMSHFT"



    Just checking...

    Yes, the prototype pics had BLUSTRK plates. Mine says CAMSHFT.

    Haven't read any reports of anyone getting him with the BLUSTRK plates.

    ZOMG! It's teh limited edition WTFBBQ version CAMSHAFT!

    Yeah, mine says Camshaft alos... I figured they'd fix that as it would probably confuse the hell out of kids whom don't even know who Bluestreak is today... especially since they've retroactively made him Silverstreak. Collector geared line or not the kids are always more in Hasbro's mind than the fans... it's a mindset.

    I think I'm the only person who's glad the liscence plate says Camshaft. Silverstreak=Bluestreak to me, and I didn't need two on my shelf. Not that I needed a Camshaft either, but I'm weak and bought it on impulse since Walmart only had one.

    Eh, if they had made him Bluestreak it would have been easy enough to explain away as them being different characters. Especially since Alternators is not G1 and the Alternators toyline has no fiction to go with it anyways. Just pull something out of your butt... like with all the other nonsensical characters we've got in the line... Ravage, Shockwave, Grimlock, Decepticharge... really, I would think that the G1 connection would have been dead for most people by now. I mean, at the very least it's a loose connection which could make it an alternate reality.

    But, hey, they made it Camshaft and thus no problems either way. For some reason I actually like the design... even if the no new head seems kind of cheap to me personally.
