Confirmed: Binaltech BT-19 Bluestreak & BT-20 Meister v2

"Redfish" of the Hong Kong based Toy Daily Forums has revealed a questionable solicitation for Transformers Binaltech BT-19 Bluestreak feat. Subaru Imprezza WRX and BT-20 Meister feat RX-8 Mazda Speed Version II whose color scheme will be based on the Movie Jazz.

The release date is June 26, 2008 in Japan and will retail at 5,000 Yen.

UPDATE: We have personally confirmed BBTS that these two figures will indeed be released around June 2008. Will the Binaltech series live on through repaints? Stay tuned as we will try to find out more, but the questionable things to point out are Bluestreak's name is Japan is just Streak, which was issued as BT-03. Also in Japan, Meister in the Movie was also referred to as Autobot Jazz and not Meister.

I would've done to, but I broke down and got one already. Now I need an Alt Kitty Ravage.
noworries. So we have to wait until June to see if the head mold is going to be different. Cross your fingers. So, will this be the last of the binaltech line (with Arcee and Optimus)?

... :wtf .. I'd hate to say it, but this is even worse than the Rollbar/Camshaft/Riccochet release..

err.. but I actually liked Riccochet enough to actually buy him... :redface ..

I can understand that.

Of those 3, I would rollbar, because: I can get repro labels and make him tantrum

Im planning on doing the same with my rave v1 alt and making it into the bird/halk predacon from predaking...

you know the one....

EDIT: RAZORCLAW!

That's a shame.

its a shame? die cast was kinda the whole point for me spending that little extra (well that and getting them right hand drive)

Right, that's what Binaltechs are. And I'd rather spend $55 on die-cast BT's than $75 on all-plastic KISS Players.

And I'd rather spend $25 on all-plastic Alts.

I like the plastic ones better AND they're cheaper.

I still would much rather have an Alt Battle Ravage than my Binaltech Battle Ravage.

After having played with both I prefer the diecasts. They are more solid in their transformations. I transform them all the time without any issues. I love the weight and feel of it. It makes it less of a "toy" and more of a collector's item. The color is amazingly different too. It gives the figures a totaly cool effect in the paint that the plastic ones can't. I'm only Familiar with the RX-8 models though. I have no interest in any other except battle ravage (trying to get a Nemesis prime head for it) to finish off the piston side.

I bought the Red and white ones when they had just come out. Recently added Laserwave and Autorooper and another rotary to the collection. I'm waiting for the new repaint to come out so I can add it to the collection and get the white one out to join them. I dislike the KISS figure because the plastic doesn't fit ans snugly as the Binaltechs.

I Hope they change the head on the new silver version. The white version will always be the Jazz/Meister so we can only hope it's different. If not? well, thanks for the rotary toys. Harder and harder to come by these days.

If you're not kidding about the battle ravage I'll trade you. I have an alternator of the battle ravage.

Next to be added to the 1/24 collection:

First generation RX7 race car

RX-3 Race car

and 787B Le Mans Winner

If they had done up Bluestreak in a more Diaclone-y fashion, I might be more interested.

i sold my alts, with no regrets. And I feel no need for these, but seriously isn't it time for some new molds or something?

Or, at least not early molds that have had multiple releases already.

I'd bet that TakTom isn't going to bother licensing any newer cars unless Hasbro is involved, since I think it's the US market that necessitates it.

For the love of my wallet; NO! Not to mention the 'I already own these TWICE'-factor.

after actually getting a few binaltech with diecast i was so disappointed on how loose their joints were right out of the misb. and the painted metal didn't match the plastic as well... they looked inconsistent.
