Love those stealth force toys, I hope the concept does well and they decide to revive MASK.

Hahahah Fort Max...I had the same thought. "It's MASK!"

I wanted to get one of each character for the smallest RPM's, but the shoddy distribution for the last few 2-packs stateside kinda ruined that. Wait and see on these new ones, but pass on the stealth force stuff.
grimlock1972
ill be collecting the stealth force. as for the rest gifts for my nephews only
Nightrain
Oh primus I shouldn't have clicked this thread. Stealth Force is awesome, and I even want some of the mini cars.
Bigbot3030
WOW! the stealth force are really cool! Sometimes i buy toys for me, and sometimes i buy them for "my nephews/Kids i'll have in the future". that whole line will be bought, but now I have to decide for who.... damn choices.

And the MASK comment is a good one. makes you wonder if they're testnig the waters a bit....

we recently learned that MASK is getting a live action movie made, so yea, you can rest at ease

I wasn't crazy about the RPM line when it was just Hotwheels cars with robots on the bottom. But darn that Stealth Force is such a cool tribute to MASK that I've just got to collect the line. Kind of nice the way they seem to be mixing different lines into Stealth Force so if it takes off who knows what sort of cool stuff we might get out of it.
guard convoy
yea, gonna need that inferno

yeha, that inferno is a really interesting take. Curious how much different vibes they are getting in here, i really love the Hound.

Probably not actually gonna buy these, but they are interesting and look like fun toys.

disappointingly severe lack of new molds in the main line (surprised looking at the stealth force line the don't dip into other lines, G1/Classics, RiD, AEC for some new molds), don't really get the Double Siders, and the Robot Riders are just terrible.

Edit: that 2-pack packaging is super-snazzy BTW.

I may be tempted by Hound.

the RPM Sideways and sideswiep repaitn apck si alreayd out in guatemala

Those Double Siders and Robot Riders are just about as ugly as toys come, but I must admit, some of those Stealth Force vehicles look pretty cool. I'm going to skip all of these though. I like my Transformers to, you know, transform.
TRANS+CRAZY
That RPM Metal Heroes Barricade will be mine!
SMOG
Profoundly unimpressed.

Transformers that don't become robots = FAIL. They're even less extensive than M.A.S.K. and no little figures either.

Ah man, that Inferno deco is the shizzle. All the Stealth Force toys look really cool, and it looks like Soundwave is now officially a tricked out Scion in all but the movieverse. Hopefully that will carry on into TF: Prime cos it's a really cool alt mode.
Nightrain
There's a car named Bluestreak 0_0

In the Stealth Force line they are using Hounds artwork from his Universe release and the jeep mode looks a good deal like his Universe release. Inferno also looks like his Universe release. And maybe it's just me but looking at Soundwave the first thing it reminded me of was his Animated release. So it does look like the Stealth Force will cover more than just the movies.

Plus with it being a brand new line I could see why they would want to include some of the movie vehicles into the line.

Still as long as they are such a cool return to something like the MASK line I'll take about any line they chose to use for these. Without a bot mode all that should really matter is does the vehicle look cool and does it have cool weapons when you change it to battle mode. (Which is why I'll skip Megatron but get all the rest).

Yea that's my whole problem with the Megatron Stealth Force toy. All the other vehicles look great because they look like normal cars and trucks until you have the weapons popping out all over the place. Megatron just standout by being a huge rolling Cybertronian weapon to begin with.

Am I the only one who sees the similarity between the TF Stealth Force and the old LJN Rough Riders Switch Force?
