Seibertron.com sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has posted new listings for Hasbro's upcoming Speed Stars Wave 3. Speed Stars, formally known as RPMs, are small, non-transforming cars and vehicles with a robot character on the bottom. Included in this release are:

Cyber Hunt Optimus Prime

Metal Heroes Lockdown

Revealer Bumblebee

Road Attack Bluestreak

Stunticons Barricade

These Speed Stars are expected to be released later this month.

Additionally, they've also posted listings for two new Stealth Force vehicles, Knock Out and High Wire. Both of these are part of the 2011 Series 1 releases and are expected next month.

Does anybody else read "Sideswipe" on the bottom of Bluestreak? (The robot mode looks like Sideswipe too) :lol:

This is a Sidswipe repaint. It's molded into the bottom and too hard to remove.

I guess I don't pay enough attention to the RPMs. Did they really release a toy of the corvette that looks like THAT? :(

:shock: BLUESTREAK?!! I thought they couldn't use that name anymore. Hence all the "Silverstreak" use in the past several years.

Metal Heroes Lockdown will be mine, if only because his deco looks is similar to Hot Wheel's Racing Drones.

Can't wait. I actually love RPMs and SpeedStars, probably because I'm a real car freak.
By the way, does anyone know a website where I can find reasonably priced RPMs single and two packs? I'm trying to buy the whole collection and I can't find Starscream, Barricade, or Jolt in stores. The only RPMs I have now are the ROTF Camaro Bumblebee and Skids :lol:.

Yeah, for some reason the Corvette Stingray was the only RPM General Motors car that was unlicensed and genericised. I don't know why but someone else might know. Oddly enough, the RPM Battle Charger Sideswipe was a licensed Corvette.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold the phone. "Stunticons Barricade"? Uh, looks more like a mix of Prowl and G1 Streetwise to me. I don't like the first bit of his name either, too. More like a Protectobot than a Stunticon... :lol:

I think they're getting around the naming issues by adding the extra bits at the beginning of the name-Turbo Tracks, Solar Storm Grapple, Road Attack Bluestreak.

That shouldn't matter if there's an "Autobot-" suffix in use. If that's really the case, then explain the decision of using "Grappel" over "Grapple".
