Several Beast Machines toys are being repainted as supplements for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line. Storm Jet, a repaint of Jetstorm, is colored to match the classic Jetfire toy from the original Transformers line. Presumably because no Autobot spark symbols were produced for Beast Machines, Storm Jet's spark is a solid red half-sphere.
A three-pack of Basic-sized toys will be released in the Robots in Disguise Mega assortment. It includes Mirage GT (repaint of Beast Machines Mirage), Nightcruz (repaint of SpyStreak - still retaining a Vehicon spark as of Toy Fair) and Scavenger (repaint of…Scavenger). Also listed but not present in the showroom is a Basic helicopter named Obsidian, presumably a redeco of the terrific Beast Machines Obsidian toy.
