    I was reading wikipedia, and it said somethin about silverstreak just being a repaint of bluestreak because of Hasbro's 25th anniversary....

    Silverstreak IS bluestreak. they just lost the trademark so they renamed him. he wasnt repainted, bluestreak has ALWAYS been silver.

    To add to Valkysas explanation, Bluestreak was named due to a blue diaclone version of Bluestreak which was featured in the 84 catalog. The actual production of the figure saw the standard silver colored car we've grown to love.

    He's Bluestreak because he talks a blue streak. The name's based on his personality not his color.

    What's that chromed blue bluestreak there? I've never heard anything about them releasing a Takara TF version in that color... is that just a custom figure in a Takara box? I unfortunately can't read Japanese, but whatever that is, it looks awesome.

    Probably an uber-rare version, owned by about ten people.

    Loved by you maybe. I'm still waiting on my Blue Bluestreak. (and no, a Binaltech Bluestreak that's completely blue, or an Alternators Camshaft with blue accents doesn't count. I want the blue sided, silver topped Diaclone homage goodness.)

    Not really. It was an ehobby release several years ago. It wasn't really all that limited, and wasn't even in much demand because what people REALLY wanted was a the Diaclone blue colored Bluestreak.

    Uh, no. SILVER chromed Bluestreak was an e-Hobby exclusive.

    The chromed BLUE Bluestreak on this page is a custom.

    Hey since we're on Bluestreak I'd like to ask a question. Seems like I remember seeing an autobot in G1 episodes that had an ability to jump like either really high or far or both. Was this Bluestreak or Smokescreen?

    Autobots randomly gained the ability to fly in G1. In the earlier eps characters would spontaniously jump up and fly to someplace. It was quite possibly both Bluestreak and Prowl.

    By the time Smokescreen came along (1985), the cartoon had established the rule that most Autobots couldn't fly unless they had a flying alternate form, or some jet pack.

    Loved by me too, Bluestreak was always one of my favorite G1 cars, and one of my favorite Alternators.

    If its from the first three eps, then its several 'bots. After that, tho, you're probably thinking of Sideswipe, or Bumblebee in Desertion of the Dinobots. Jet packs for both.
