    I recall it being real & talked about at Botcon, but past that, you'll probably get more info from others who'll come in the thread expecting it to be about FE reissues haha.

    It's real and it's amazing. ;) 

    This toy is part of the new "subscription service" the club anounced at Botcon. It and 5 others (Ultra Mammoth, Circuit, RiD Scourge, Animated Jackpot, and a G1 version of their G2 Breakdown from 2010.) will be made by the club. If you are a club member you can subscribe to the group and get them all as they come out, or you can buy them individually at a higher price when they're released.


    -ZacWilliam, Slipstream here (amazing) is the only one I want myself. So it'll be a single purchase for me.

    This is real, and I want it too! I am looking forward to most of these guys actually, but I don't know if I'll be able to sign up for the program.

    On one hand we are getting Slipstream, on the other hand they are using the exact same Model for Starscream...

    I think it's lame. I want Slipstream to go the WFC route and have her own mold.

    Well,

    1) New head, that's very important.

    2) it's a REALLY REALLY feminine mold to begin with.

    I would honestly say it looks more natural as Slipstream than it does as Screamer. It really is a perfect take on her IMO. Cannot wait till they release it. I'll be surprised if its before next year though. Suuuch a long wait for such a perfect must-have toy. :) 


    -ZacWilliam, she's going with my G1 figures personally, as G1 Slipstream, so she woun't look much like Starscream there anyway for me. ;)

    This.

    Looks I might join the club after all. (What with scourge coming out and all)

    Shouldn't this be in the toy discussion?

    If you do, I strongly suggest doing so with some sort of prepaid credit card, especially one that you can add funds do whenever you want.

    I suppose it is far too early to talk about how much this is going to be?

    Personally I'm going to put her with my classics so its not an issue for me, also isn't there a voyager starscream coming out in prime? I could totally be wrong as I don't keep up with prime news.

    Subscription toy you have to spend $300.00 Plus and order a years worth to get them at the best price. then try to off load the one you don't want.

    This is likely going to be some kind of omni-shambles I suspect.

    To be fair we don't yet know the price but this probably isn't far off.
