    Bouncing off of yesterday's new Activators listings, BBTS has finally listed the next wave of Speed Stars related merchandise.



    First off, the Knockout/Highwire motorcycles we saw last week are actually part of their own new size class smaller than the usual Stealth Force vehicles. Going for about $7 MSRP from what I can tell between EE and BBTS's pages for them:
    Transformers Speed Stars Stealth Force Motorcyles Wave 1 Set - HASBRO - Transformers - Vehicles at Entertainment Earth

    RPMs Stealth Force Motorcycle Series 01 - Highwire - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    RPMs Stealth Force Motorcycle Series 01 - Knockout - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles



    For Stealth Force Basic, the next wave after the recently released Barricade will contain a new character, "Leadfoot". Personally my fingers are crossed for a homage to the G2 Rotorforce character...
    RPMs Stealth Force 2011 Basic Series 01 - Leadfoot - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles



    The next wave of Speed Stars 2-packs will only have one new item, the White Mixmaster/Red Ironhide two pack revealed in the same news post as the motorcycles-
    RPMs Mini Vehicle Two-Packs Series 02 - Ironhide Vs. Mixmaster - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles



    Lastly Speed Stars Series 3 will give us Lockdown, Outsider Bumblebee, a G1 Prowlish repaint of Barricade, a Black/Red/Silver repaint of Optimus, and Bluestreak (bolded and blued for emphasis). Yeah, so Hasbro apparently regained the rights to Bluestreak or something. Everybody can start demanding their Generations Blue-Bluestreak now.
    RPMs Mini Vehicle Single Packs Series 03 - Barricade (White/Black) - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    RPMs Mini Vehicle Single Packs Series 03 - Bluestreak - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    RPMs Mini Vehicle Single Packs Series 03 - Lockdown - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    RPMs Mini Vehicle Single Packs Series 03 - Optimus Prime (Black/Red/Silver) - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    RPMs Mini Vehicle Single Packs Series 03 - Outsider Bumblebee - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    Yay for getting Bluestreak back! hopefully this means we can start calling him that again in the fiction. And the "Motorcycle Class" is interesting, would love for an Armads Sideways homage down the line in it.

    ...And yay for Leadfoot!

    The Speed Stars Ironhide/Mixmaster 2-pack is out in stores already. I saw it this Saturday at ToysRus.

    The ROTF Lockdown die-cast looks great. It's probably the only Speed Stars die-cast I'll ever buy unless they do others not from the movie-verse like Generation One or War For Cybertron vehicles.

    I wonder if the Stealth Force bikes will be in scale with the 3 3/4 G.I. Joes.

    RPMs Mini Vehicle Two-Packs Series 02 - Ironhide Vs. Mixmaster - Transformers 2010 Transformers Vehicles

    This set with Red Enforcerer Ironhide & White Mixmaster along with a repaint Megatron + Jetfire http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19225&mode=retail and a funny part silver Optimus and Desert Longhaul (similar to Payload) http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19224&mode=retail I forget what else all showed up in the UK a couple of weeks ago. as well as Mudflap and skids in slightly different packaging for £5.00 a pair.

    I was pondering if they were worth 2.50 each vehicle or not.

    I just assumed they were already out in America as none of the places selling them was TK Maxx and they often sell former American Clearanced toys.

    Still yet to see any Starscream RPM in the UK though or Battlechargers wave 2.

    Someone else said that there's an even newer card redesign for RPM's and these two have also been repacked on that too. the ones I saw though were on a European card with lots of languages - previously the cards for UK RPM had been mostly American cards.

    Oh and I hope they import some of the newer ones of these this Lockdown is hugely cool :
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19629&mode=retail

    I always get the feeling with these that some will come out that people won't even realise exist I'd never seen these before till today :

    Sideswipe with markings : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19218&mode=retail
    Blue Ironhide : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19217&mode=retail
    Tan Starscream : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19220&mode=retail
    Silver/Black Barricade : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19215&mode=retail
    REd/Blue Optimus : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19214&mode=retail
    Buestreak : http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19631&mode=retail

    & this ones seems to be missing a vehicle shot :

    depending on how large they are, I might actually grab one or both of the motorcycles. I actually really like fiddling with the cars when I'm at the store, but always have other things that take purchasing precedence. Theres definitely something satisfying about how they transform, though.

    There will be a Hasbro Blue - Blue streak finally :) 

    (unless they made a Heroes of Cybertron or Titanium 3" one or similar and I forgot)

    I'm anxious to see what the future holds for "Bluestreak" now that Hasbro has the name back :)  I'm equally curious to see the future for "Silverstreak" (I like that name too :) ).

    Maybe a little closer to the dream release of a U.S. G1 Blue Bluestreak, and the inevitable mental meltdown of that guy on ebay trying to sell the Diaclone one for $7500.

    Or maybe not. Honestly I'd be happy with a sexy CHUG Bluestreak in blue and silver.

    I may be a little late to the game, but I can confirm that it looks very much like the main obstacle that has kept Hasbro off using the name "Bluestreak" for years has indeed been resolved.

    As of last year, actually.

    Looking at Outsider Bumblebee's picture, I think it's mis-named. It's actually part of the "Revealers" series, where robot bits and weapons show through on the vehicle mode, so it's actually Revealers Bumblebee.
