    The names Silverstreak and Bluestreak used to confused me so much as a kid. I’m glad we are finally getting a blue Colored Bluestreak. It’s hilarious that he’s named Silverstreak.

    I still think those Buzzworthy Bumblebee is quite an exception thing but,
    since this came out, it seems I was wrong after all. hehe.
    Like I said I never saw an Target exclusive WFC toys that is not red except Buzzworthy Bumblebee. So, I thought it would be unusual if it's a blue.
    And actually blue is much better since we already have earth grey&red bluestreak, right?

    Funny thing is Silverstreak still kinda works as a name for the blue repaint. Decent amount on the car mode at least. 800px-MP-18B-Bluestreak.jpg

    I missed nearly all of the UT cartoons, so I have no emotional connection to it. But I'm always up for cool new well-engineered toys (well, budget permitting), so unless they're terrible, I'll probably pick many/most them up. And since I don't have any attachment to their canon, I can make them whomever I want them to be. There's a lot of minor characters over the decades who never got a figure.

    I'd definitely like to see WfC-style engineering in new updates of Override, Soundwave, Arcee, Chromia, Quickslinger, Treadbolt, Thunderblast, and Spacewarp (even if some of them are just Selects repaints or light retools).

    I’m so fucking happy over a blue repaint.

    Do I need help or something?

    Oh boy I hope your information is correct.

    If true, Bully! I'm so glad that somebody at Hasbro is in on the joke, though of course, I would have called him Silverstreak regardless, it'll be nice to see it "officially" acknowledged to some capacity.

    Edit: if for some reason it doesn't pan out, and is instead a more silver Bluestreak, that's fine. Money saved for me.

    Armada was what got me into collecting. I'd been a G1 fan as a kid but Armada pulled me in. I probably wouldn't buy updates of them , except for the Prime, Jetfire and Overload combo. None of the others have that nostalgic appeal to me. Hasbro would be mad not to do those three at some point - they could get at least two repaints out of them - Unicron Battles and Final Battle. Plus an Ultra Magnus repaint out of Overload.

    Nice! Thanks for the update. Now bring on Earth Mode Hound, Skids (I know he’s rumored), Reboost, Crosscut, black Skids, red Mirage and black Ironhide!!!!

    Edit: forgot Clampdown & Loudpedal and I’ll still take all Silver Bluestreak too!!

    Forgot about those. Yea, the idea that Target only wants red figures for exclusives is as silly as the idea that Walgreens only wants medical characters (there's plenty of examples that contradict both ideas) and I'm not sure how those ideas ever even got started.
