    It's kinda cool, but it just randomly gives you questions. I got the same dang question 3 times in a row. It'd be better if it was set up more like a quiz where you answer one question and move on and get a final score.

    That's kind of neat. Found out some character traits I didn't know before.

    I think that feature started out on their message board. :)

    Ya I remember playing with that a month or two ago. It's kinda fun but it does get repetitive rather quickly with a few new ones thrown in just to keep you going, lol.

    Does that mean they have Blue Streak registered?

    "That" what? "They" who? Keep in mind not everyone is getting the same questions as you.

    So please elaborate what information you have seen hints at, and what you don't understand about it.

    Blue Streak is the answer :D

    All I'm asking is Blue Streak a registered trademark.

    Last I checked, a company named Gendron owned the trademark for
    TOLEDO "BLUE STREAK"

    Which prevents Hasbro from using it (or any "confusingly similar" trademarks, for that matter) on one of their toys.

    But since
    a) the Transformerslive website is maintained by Dreamworks and not by Hasbro
    b) trademarks are limited to specific fields, in Hasbro's case "TOYS"
    c) trademarks are only important for ADVERTIZING products (like, say, Marvel has the trademark "SPIDER-MAN" registered, you could still publish a comic book that is using the name a million times in the story itself, you're just not allowed to use the name ON THE COVER)
    d) the question on the TF Live website is referring to the G1 cartoon, which is 20 years old, and information about an old cartoon can't be "censored" because Hasbro don't own a certain trademark anymore (what are they going to to, redub the entire cartoon and call the character "Silverstreak", then have it changed back again when Hasbro get the name back ten years down the road?)

    that question is pretty much irrelevant. :) 

    I hope I helped enlightening you. :)
