Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -WonkoTheSane- has clued us in to a new set of images of forthcoming Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Bluestreak! The images have appeared in the Netherlands version of Amazon so the listing is in Dutch. The price given is €24,27 and the release date is given as 1st September 2020.

Transformers News: New Images of Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Bluestreak

As you can see, the incorrect render is included and appears on the back of the box. The render uses the Smokescreen version of the mold while the correct version of the toy uses the Earthrise Prowl head which already greatly resembled cartoon Bluestreak's head.

There is still no official confirmation on how Bluestreak will be released, with rumours circulating that at least in the USA, he'd be a Walgreens exclusive like last years Siege Ratchet.

What do you think of this release? Are you getting Bluestreak? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I got Doubledealer yesterday after my first ever visit to a Smyths Toys Superstore. So far I've had a lot of fun with him, his bird mode isn't that good, but the other two modes are lovely, and the cassette deck for Knok and Skar is a nice little feature. Doubledealer also holds the distinction of being the only toy from the War For Cybertron Trilogy that I bought in an actual brick-and-mortar store and not online, but a Smyths is opening an hour's drive away from where I live later this year, so that may change soon.

That Bluestreak is GLORIOUS. He will be a great addition to the shrine.

He's not blue. A blue Bluestreak would be glorious. :-P

I got an email from Amazon today saying my coneheads are delayed 3 weeks! :-(

And Pulse charged my account for Scorponok last week and still nothing. :-(

I got charged by Pulse for Scorponok and he hasn't shipped, but Sky Lynx is en route, and I think he would agree that's more important.

Well looks like they are trying to make good on getting them out by 9/1, which is good to see. I got both at Target last month

But hopefully this means the wave 2 deluxes scheduled for 9/1 will also be spotted soon as well, or at the very least shipping form Pulse.

Silverstreak, Bluestreak, potahto, potayto... [-(

Regardless, I have a Silverstreak shrine and it's all because I picked up MP Silverstreak at Toys R Us at the time they bothered having MPs in Quebec. I'll have to get the Alternator at some point. Better yet, the Binaltech, for that premium feel.

So apparently that render was legit? Huh, guess I'm eating my words on that one. Though I'm getting a bit concerned about the number of mistakes the renders are making for the upcoming waves of ER and Netflix.

Render aside, Bluestreak looks really, really good, easily the best of this mold. He's quickly convincing me to get the 2-pack for Prowl. :lol:

Since none of the Datsuns are going to be selects figures this time around, I'm hoping that means there's room for a selects blue Bluestreak.

Those are my general thoughts on sunstreaker.

I dunno, I think Sunstreaker looks pretty solid. But I had really low expectations for him to begin with, and he's already surpassed those, so my perspective is probably a bit different.

Should also be remembered that a lot of Hasbro's design staff is working from home so there's probably not a lot of direct oversight from team managers making mistakes slip through easier.

Still not nearly as bad as T30 Nightbeat having the entirely wrong mold (TF2010 Jazz mold) on his package and art all the way up to his release (T30 Bumblebee mold), for the better IMO.

Haven't gotten my hands on Jetfire (and it seems like I'm probably not gonna get him at retail price now), but Sky Lynx is definitely a strong showing. Can't wait to see who Kingdom's Commander is (hope it's not Rodimus like the leaks have been suggesting).

The [Official] Transformers Information Bureau has pics of the actual figure of Fasttrack in Scorponok's hand. I gotta say, I'm looking forward to this now that I see how he will be held in the claw. And the seat for the lil Titan Master is icing on the cake.

The img tags don't work unless they're aimed at the image directly, not the window showing them (in other words, the link has to end in .jpg or any other image format). "Copy Image Location" is not the best way to do that, sadly.

The seat is surprising, to be honest.

I'm hoping for an oversized Doubledealer from who ever replaces weijang. The alts driving compartments too small compared to other vehicle modes and seeing as I don't like the mini bots it would be cool if he could store normal sized g1/mp cassettes or even forget the gimmick. Failing that some kind of attachment upgrade to clip on the earthrise toy might work.

Interestingly, they've always shown on my end so I never realized. I went back and added them as inline attachments. I really dig the seat. I enjoyed the titan masters and power masters so this is definitely cool.

I wouldn't count on there being someone to replace Weijang. "We should copy the model of that company that just got shut down, I'm sure it'll be fine for us."

You can just say you're not getting Doubledealer because the scale is too small for you, you don't have to create an imaginary toy created by an imaginary company to cater to your personal arbitrary desires.

Not really, when some forumer might know of an upscaled Doubledealer or add on kit.
Re: New Images of Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Bluestreak (2076790)
Posted by aronjlove on August 20th, 2020 @ 9:07am CDT
Wei Jiang wasn't the only upscaler, when trying to get the Terrorcons I almost accidentally ordered an upscaled Blot on eBay. Got interested but I could never find a seller an upscaled Hun-Gurr.

I am really envious of everyone with Sky Lynx taking pics of OP or Arcee riding him like a stallion. I ordered mine along with ER Starscream from Megalopolis.toys and they must be hit bad by Covid or something. First order shipped quick, second has been hanging out for a while.

ER Arcee has been delayed on Pulse, I wonder what the chances of seeing her in Target before Pulse ships? I got the T30 and I just don't like her legs. The ER version still has thin legs but I do like the plastic they use on current figures better so I'm hoping she feels a little more stable. Plus she'll have 5mm hands.

For those interested, TF Source posted Earthrise Bluestreak today for preorder: https://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/17396

He is rumored to be a Walgreens exclusive, which would account for the higher price listed here ($35.99).

Went out hunting at four Targets today.

The first store yielded me a Sky Lynx.

The second and third had nothing I wanted.

The fourth yielded me both the Seeker 2-pack and the Clones 2-pack.

That was good hunting.

Though, none of them had even an empty spot on the shelf reserved for Scorponok.

Most of the Targets in my area do have the shelf space tagged for Scorponok, but they have no stock. Even the one store in my area that shows one as in stock can't find it anywhere in the store! Luckily, I was able to order one last night when they briefly came in stock again!

Good haul with finding Sky Lynx, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Pounce, and Wingspan, Sabr! I got a Sky Lynx from Target the other week. It took a ridiculous amount of effort, checking "in-stock" notices about a dozen times over until I was finally able to order them, but I got the Seeker 2-pack and Clone 2-pack via Target.com.

Here's hoping that the Wave 2 Deluxes show up soon!

The spear is a nice touch but it looks really small and lets be honest, Black Zarak used a spear so it really seems out of place with Scorpy. I'm still buying it because I have no willpower, and the robot mode overall looks solid.

Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, LinaNui, we've learned that fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime has done a new video review of forthcoming Transformers Earthrise Wave 3 Deluxe Class Fastrack!

Fastrack is the only Weaponizer in Earthrise (the gimmick was superseded by the modulator gimmick of Ironworks and Airwave), acting as an extra to Titan Class Scorponok, the same way that Cog, Sixgun and Brunt interacted with their respective Titans.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience.



What do you think of this figure? Is your Scorponok waiting for his spear? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

There's no reason it won't. Look like your standard 5mm port. If the bot's arm is strong enough to support the weight, it should be able to handle the Fastrack paddle.

I had time for some minor city building fun this weekend and here is what I came up with for just the WFC Airlock connectors and figures. I intentionally kept them mostly in a line so that I can add in the rest of the titans and TR leader bases once I have the rest of the WFC base-bots.

I've gotten everything from WFC so far, triple dipping on Ironworks, Soundbarrier and Slitherfang, and 2x on Greasepit. I left out Hoist and Grapple since they really just feature a connector not really a part of a base (Hoist easily could attach to Sky Lynx if I wanted).

I've been playing around with ER Skylinx and lemme tell you. WORTH EVERY CENTS! Seriously an amazing update. The bonus base mode is a welcome addition and it go perfectly well with Omega Supreme. Same theme and all.

Now to have the room to display them both in base mode together...

Check your local Targets or Target.com, this weeks' email ad lists their Collector's Spot and both the Seeker and Clone two-pack are in stock for shipping. Didn't see Scorp or Sky Lynx but looks like there are plenty of the two exclusive two-packs.

This figure is set to appear on store shelves as part of Wave 3, along with other figures such as Fastrack, Runamuck and Sunstreaker.

Why not both? Is it a mold-collecting thing? So that means you won't be getting Inferno either, since you got Grapple?

It's not a mold collecting thing, it's just that I have to be a bit picky about where my money goes. I don't have a job (I'm too busy with college, going for mechanical engineering), so the majority of my spending money comes from the $8 I earn from doing chores every week. Hoist just doesn't grab me nearly as much as Trailbreaker does, and I'm already planning to spend a lot on transformers as it is (probably more than I'm going to be able to actually get, if I'm being honest). I may get Inferno, but it depends on how he looks and who else is coming out around the same time.

I’m really looking forward to this version of Trailbreaker. It’s a great upgrade to the Thrilling 30 and CW versions. I also like the Hoist mood, so I guess it isn’t a surprise I think ER Trailbreaker is a great figure. I’m eagerly awaiting my BBTS preorder.

For my part, I'm unsure if I'll get Trailbreaker just because I already have Hoist, and of late I've been trying to cut back on the number of mold-duplicates in my collection (with the exception of the darn Seekers)....

What is it about Seekers that's got everybody including myself so obsessed over them and willing to spend thousands on the same mold in different colors?

Is it just because they have been an established group since the original toys/cartoon? I don't see people go crazy over the Datsun-bros, Ironhide/Ratchet or Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hubcap/Bumper types despite also being around for a long time.

You don't? From a toy aspect, I love my Datsuns as much as the F-15s. I think it probably goes to how they were presented in "fiction". I quote it because some of it was commercials.

I think the difference between the jets and the other mold sharing figures is they've always been kind of a package deal. Prowl and Bluestreak teamed up once on the show, but weren't really associated together in any meaningful way, and they didn't really do anything with them and Smokescreen either - same with Cliffjumper and Bumblebee (Hubcap and Bumper are afterthoughts).

Is it just because they have been an established group since the original toys/cartoon? I don't see people go crazy over the Datsun-bros, Ironhide/Ratchet or Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hubcap/Bumper types despite also being around for a long time.


That particular body type was used as a crowdfiller in the original cartoon, right from the very first scenes. So kids saw that design a lot. Plus, compare how many turned into land vehicles to the amount of aircraft.
