    Not sure if this gas been reported yet, feel free to lock up if needed.

    Found new Speed Stars @ Shopko in Lacey, WA today. I picked up one of each except the Bumblebees, one is the same mold as the one that came w/ the DS game and the other has a bee deco on his hood.

    If that pic doesn't work, here's my tumble post with pic.

    These have been out for weeks at some (but not all) of the local Meijer stores.

    Wave 1 includes:
    Bumblebee (Beast Machines series)
    Optimus Prime (Beast Machines series)
    Bumblebee (Trans Scan series)
    Mirage (Trans Scan series)
    Crumplezone (Trans Scan series)
    Optimus Prime (Night Attack series)
    Bumblebee (Night Attack series)
    Crumplezone (Night Attack series)
    Optimus Prime (Stealth Force series)
    Bumblebee (Stealth Force series)
    Autobot Topspin (Stealth Force series)
    Optimus Prime (Metal Heroes series)

    The Optimus Prime Metal Heroes one is the only carryover from previous Speedstars/RPM waves.

    I'm all over those Bumblebee's.

    Now if I can only get the exclusive ones that came with DS and the Wii without having to buy the games.

    PS. the cardbacks list three other Speedstars toys, presumably part of wave 2:

    Leadfoot (Stealth Force series)
    Roadbuster (Stealth Force series)
    Lockdown (Beast Machines series)

    With those three, the Stealth Force, Beast Machines, Trans Scan, and Night Attack series are all completed (at least as far as the numbering shows), so if there's anything more than those three, they would have to be part of a new series.

    Why isn't Beast Machines Optimus based on a gorilla?

    Just realized, there are a bunch of older RPMs/Speedstars that haven't been released yet. Stuff like Revealer Barricade or Robot Riders Bumblebee could probably be thrown into future waves. Or its possible those molds will just be permanently cancelled and never released. I guess the question might be whether they already have production molds complete and paid for and ready to use in the factories.

    But at the very least, hopefully we'll get a wave 2 with Leadfoot, Roadbuster, and Lockdown.

    I know. Seems like such a missed opportunity.

    Little less'n a month ago, yeah, I picked up all twelve (the Bumblebees in triplicate because I WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED IF I HAD NOT DONE SO). :) 

    (Made damn sure there was some kind of sale going on AND had a $10 off $50 coupon to blow.)

    I'm not surprised that people think these things are new. I haven't even seen any of the new DOTM Speed Stars stuff in my area yet.

    I've been wanting quite a few Speed Stars we saw pictures of a while ago; especially robot mode Starscream and the translucent Mirage.

    Why the hell is Optimus a bull. Regardless, I might have to get those. Anyone know what the third is (Prime is listed as 1 of 3)?

    According to his bio, it's a dragon. Lockdown is listed as number 3, Bumblebee is #2.

    I really just want Mirage, since the deluxe toy still hasn't been officially announced.
