    And once again, a nonvoyager Ironhide toy gets a g1 color scheme.

    High Wire looks like it uses Scout class Knockout's bot mode design on the packaging.

    Speed Star Knockout looks awesome, both in alt mode and in bot mode concept art. Hope he gets a real toy sometime.

    Stealth Force dropped the ball on those two IMO. Prime and Gears were way better.

    I like how Highwire's seat appears to fold up in to 4 guns, only to shoot into his one big gun right in front of them. :p  Yeah, not a very well thought out design.

    I'd prefer to see it as a scout, myself.

    I goofed around with the Stealth Force ...things... @ the store recently, and i gotta say, i really don't get it. Size, Price and Quality seems to pale to similar toys (they feel really chincy and light) and the Transformation gimmick seems like it'd be fun for a kid about 3x before you got bored of it. The weapons are poorly sculpted and defined, and just don't DO anything after they pop out.

    I get the RPMs (or Speed Stars or whatever they're called now) even if i think they are overpriced, the clearly have a market, an audience and an objective. Same with the Activators and Quick change figures.

    The Stealth Force idea just seems 1/2 baked and poorly executed.

    Wow, I like Stealth force, but I had to actually compare the images to see if he actually had pop-out weapons at all.

    They need to give us an honest to goodness transforming version of that knock out. That vehicle looks great!

    The Can Am bikes are made close to where I live. Tons of those on the roads.

    Want transformable versions of those 2 characters though!
