    This sucka is up for sale on ebay already. Noticed that the license plate still says "blustrk". I think this may be a case of different license plate from box name ala Shockblast vs Shockwave. More extreme of course since Camshaft and Bluestreak or 2 different characters. Or maybe this is still an early production one and they haven't fixed the license plate yet. Seeing how lazy Hasbro can be though, they probably didn't and won't bother fixing the license plate.

    While I like the guy... I have to predict that he's going to be a shelfwarmer rather quickly.

    So he is due out before Rumble?

    It looks like it is numbered 23 (flash from the camera is kind of in the way) and Alt Prime is 21, assuming that Mirage is 22 that would make Rumble 24...maybe those two will be in the same wave?

    This figure just screams laziness to me. If the actual production run features the Bluestreak plate, I feel that is a big sign that Hasbro has turned attention away from the Alt line. Stick to your guns, if the fig was supposed to be Bluestreak, keep it Bluestreak, and commit to a few more paint apps so the homage is more complete. I can picture the scene:
    Hasbro Designer: " Hey, That Alternators Bluestreak figure is about to hit production!"
    Hasbro Exec: " You know that we already have a figure that is supposed to be that character, Right?"
    Hasbro Designer: "Oh Shit! Bumblebee, What are we gonna do now?"
    Exec; "Don't worry about it, change the name on the packaging, and consider it done!"
    Designer; " But what about the license plate?"
    Exec; " Ahh, EFF-It, lets cut out early, and hit the clubs!"

    Lazy, lazy, lazy. The whole thing just seems like a big whooops on Hasbro's part.

    If the paint apps that is shown on the bottom of the box (e.g. bluestreak's yellow "V" on the shoulder) is still there, then I'm calling him Bluestreak. If it looks like a duck. walks like a duck, etc...then it's a duck.

    That will probably be after we see the (rumored Decepticon) Mustang repaint.



    Swerve was a lot better than this blandfest.

    The dull grey now looks like shinier silver. I vastly prefer this over Prowl.

    Damn, it is for real. As an Alternators/Binaltech collector, I will cry when I pick this guy up.

    I think it says he is 23. I really think he is replacing Tracks in the 1st Mirage wave. It has to be.prime is 21...mirage is 22 and he is 23, that leaves room for the old #7 Meister.

    The blue paint apps on his shoulders are new, the last proto we saw didn't have that.

    So all of the paint is there for the Bluestreak homage, however a weak concept that is.

    I'm still getting this guy because I love the mold and its close enough to Nightbeat to please me because I'm easy.

    So, is that one on e-bay painted silver or is it still "silver" plastic?

    I wouldn't mind seeing Tracks replaced in that wave, as it is Tracks is STILL warming shelves here. However it's just wishful thinking. It's too late to replace all those Tracks with Camshafts sseing as how that wave is probably on it's way here from China.

    Hes different enough from Prowl, and close enough to Nightbeat (one of the few headmasters I ever saw or played with when I was a kid) that I will end up picking him up on those grounds.
    Heck, I picked up Rollbar, for near the same reason, as I had chopped and modded both Hound and Swindle so much, that leaving Rollbar stock made him look the part of a totally new fig.
    This one will involve far less work, just simple as me losing the stupid nightstick.
