Sponsor Big Bad Toy Store let us know of a pre-order page for the much speculated Masterpiece Ghost Starscream. Could the leak from earlier in the month actually be true? Only time will tell, stay tuned.
Check out the BBTS order page here: Masterpiece Ghost Starscream
bbts lists it as "confirmed" so is this real or not? truly disappointing if it is. how about after this one we get sunstorm then acid storm huh? then after those two we get an all black screamer? what about an all pink one for the girls? a green and red one for a christmas screamer? i don't think we'll ever see an autobot car in the next 20 years at this rate.
Mah Boi, this here is what all true warriors strive for! PLZZZZZ be real!!!
Well truth be told, they already managed to sneak in that Green Starscream which caught a lot of flak from the fans. I mean, at the time, it was accepted that we wouldn't see another Starscream, right? So even if they never get around to making any other seekers, Takara is still one-up on us.
Anyway, like everyone else, I agree its time to rework the mold and give us the coneheads.
Well, that would explain the lower cost.
Shipping would be expensive though.
Robot Kingdom is located in Hong Kong, I believe.
Where is Robot Kingdom located? That's much cheaper than the other two. The $5 difference with TF Source isn't that big of a deal, especially if you take advantage of the Pile of Loot feature at BBTS.
robot kingdom usually has the best prices, even with $15-$20 shipping
hoax or not, i'm passing on this… already have coronation starscream
Robot Kingdom: $98.90
None of these prices include shipping.
Yep, made my pre-order as well. If real, great, if not, no harm.
I have my pre-order in and as well I hope its true but if it isn't then I am sure they will cancel pre-orders.
i hope it's true.
i want one.
Also need a Black Starscream… and Acid Storm if the mold holds up lol
Now run ye doubters and get your preorders in before they are all gone
So now we can try to glue the wings back onto a clear version of this mold?
Meh. Hope it's a hoax.
Well, let's hear it.
"BBTS, RK, and TF Source all got taken in by the prank! They're idiots!"
So what's left, Sunstorm and the generic purple Clone? Think they'll be eHobby Exclusives?
I must say, I'm a bit confused on this one.
At some point though, I hope that they do a minor retool on this mode and give us Masterpiece Coneheads.
Ok. So what store does have a "reasonable" price, and how much less is it than BBTS is charging?
In case no one answered after I stopped reading.
That's a site code for their inventory system. Just like Hasbro products have HASXXXXX and the like.
Ah well, better to preorder and not be real that not preorder and pay excessive mark-up from the demand.
TFSource has confirmed that MP Ghost Starscream is real and is slated for a June release:
"First rumored a hoax, we had a supplier today confirm the MP-03 Clear Masterpiece Ghost Starscream is slated for a June 2010 release and preorders are now up at TFsource!"
