Toy Fair 2011 coverage continues! Here's a little bit of everything else: Speed Stars, Role Play, Kre-O, Robot Fighters, Go-Bots, and more! In addition to all that, Hasbro has now acquired the license for Sesame Street! Check out a sampling of the images below and be sure to visit their full galleries.


Speed Stars

In the heat of the ongoing epic battle between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, both the heroes and villains often need to remain “Hidden in Plain Sight” while in vehicle mode. With the new STEALTH FORCE feature, TRANSFORMERS characters battle in vehicle mode with hidden weapon reveals! The line of SPEED STARS STEALTH FORCE vehicles highlights this element of the TRANSFORMERS fantasy with automatic or simple conversions from traditional vehicle mode to a vehicle battle mode featuring “pop-out” weapons for high-speed battles.

Shouldn't the wheels on the real life Optimus truck be all black and look like crap?

And now that my smartass comment is out of the way, I read something about them saying the Prime figs ARE NOT a part of Generations...but was there any mention about Generations Arcee? I'm still not holding my breath, but at least there's a shred of hope there...

Wow...so Hasbro thinks everyone wants to buy THE EXACT SAME TOYS...EXACT...a second time (or third since some are being put out AGAIN in RtS). Lazy effort on the Speed Stars line I have to say. The Wrecker toys look worth it though.
And where are the Kre-O toys? I saw Optimus and Bee in a YouTube video earlier today.
Also, I'm glad to see the Go-Bot name back.

Why do I care?
Maybe I buy one once in a while.

But really, how does Hasbro expect to make a profit off of the same toys they've already released with no repaints or modifications?

I see a Lockdown redeco on that table, hopefully it's one I'll actually see in stores!
also: I'll watch for Wreckers repaints, since I like their 'weaponized' look but not NASCAR itself

I like the sword the nerf guns ok but if your going to get a nerf gun there are better ones out there, Suprised to see them doing "lego" transformers again, its a great idea but unless they team with lego its gonna suck. Ive lost interest in the crossovers, to expensive and their not that good. Still dont see the point of speed stars. On another note the gi joe figures look great, im liking that new cobra commander.

If THAT's what Hasbro is gonna do with Go-bots, then they just need to give it back to Bandai. :-x

Man that is terrible. Hopefully they will rerelease some of the Classics and Universe deluxe figures as Reveal The Shield or Generations.

I have no interest in the Movie figures and the Transformers:Prime figures only interest me a little because the show is actually good! However G1 holds a special place in my heart and that is what I want to see more of.

Unfortunately for you and some others, there are a lot of people wanting to see this movie stuff, so that's why Hasbro is showing it and putting their focus on it. HOWEVER, I believe they will release more Reveal the Shield and Generations, but maybe they're really keeping their plans closely guarded after the DOTM leaks started popping up so early all over the place.
I'm personally really keeping my fingers crossed for Classics and Universe re-releases after skipping out on those lines, so I'm hoping for the same as you.

I actually saw Arcee and the Tri-Bike dude in one of the to Wal-Marts a couple nights ago here in Wilmington, NC. Couldn't figure out how to enter the sightings in the Database, so I'll just say it here.

I saw Speed Stars Arcee and her partner in crime Tri-Bike dude. ;) :lol:

Edit; Forgot to mention, I also saw the orange Monster Truck too. Didn't see the Green bike, nor did I want to. :lol:
