Don't believe the rumors of a hoax! The Masterpiece Ghost Starscream is for REAL!!! Thanks to the Joel at BigBadToyStore who is the second retailer to confirm the Masterpiece Ghost Starscream as being a real product to be released by Takara Tomy. As we reported yesterday, this product is coming in June. The image above is a placeholder, we will update the image with actual pics of the clear Ghost Starscream once images are released. Check out the actual listing now at BigBadToyStore.com. Read the Full News Story Here

Looks like this might actually be real. I am probably going to have to shell out the monrey for it since I am a total sucker for the Masterpiece line. I will pay the money with this caveat:

 

NO MORE REPAINTS FOR AWHILE!!!!

 

This is it ok? I love crystal figures, but I want something new, not something simply redone.

I guess BBTS has had history of putting up pre orders in the past of figures that were just hear say. SO its not exactly confirmed, but i believe they are making it. Possibly, they weren't even thinking aboiut it (TakTom) and hearing all the comotion made them "confirm" it. I still need confrimation from TakTom before i full believe it. But i dont doubt it.

Either way, im not getting "Ghost Starscream" im still waiting on Thundercracker in G1 colors from Hasbro, since i bought SKywarp today (marked down to $50 mind you ;) ), and already have a G1 Walscream. Hasbro; BRING US G1THUNDERCRACKER NEXT!!! lol

BBTS and RK are about as official as you get.

 

No question that this item will be out now.

 

I wonder though, since it is clear, will it come in the usual MP black box, or the Walmart clear one?

 

I mainly wonder because one will be much better for display then the other.

I feel the exact same. I will get it... but i'm tired of the repaints in this line. Takara probably doesn't feel like this is 'as' much of a repaint as we do - since it was Hasbro, not takara, that just released the other 2 seekers. Grimlock was a new mold, but then we did get Black Prime as a repaint. I guess the formula is - 1 new mold followed by 2 repaints. It just feels like it's WAAAYYYY too much repaints right now with Hasbro releasing the screamers as well.

 

If this figure is out in June 2010 -- i bet they do not get another figure out until 2011.

 

I will be getting it tho... i'll wait for it to be on TFSource tho.

 

Btw, Aaron, did you get the MP-08x grimlock version or just the regular one?? I did get the black prime, but I just couldn't justify the 08x. What sealed the deal for me, is that it is not an official Takara/Tomy release. I just don't consider this part of the MasterPiece line, as much as just an independant custom. AS a fellow MP collector, and someone who was heavily influencial in me shelling out the money for both BT Mirage and BT Nemeis - i'd be interested in your take on X Grimlock.

If it's a TAkara release, it will likely be in the black box. Isn't it the US/Hasbro ones that are released in the clear?

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
