    Does anyone out here know if there were ever official tech specs for Ghost or Black Starscream? (their cards that came with them are blank on the back unlike Sunstorm) Should I just presume that the stats would be the same as the other reissue Starscreams? Also, I know the Ghost Starscream toy was inspired by the G1 cartoon but is there a back story given for the black version?

    I might be wrong, but black Starscream may be the character moments before he was reduced to ash by Galvatron's forearm mounted cannon.

    Really where did you get that impression from? They don't share the exact same color scheme, Black Scream has gold stripes which i'm pretty sure MW Scream doesn't.

    I've heard the "Black Starscream is inspired by Machine Wars Starscream" story before, though I can't remember from who.

    And I just looked at TFU's MW Starscream pictures, and it looks like he has some (relatively small) gold stickers.

    Actually, that was the description given on E-Hobby's site, as I recall. Wherever it came from, it was official enough.

    I like the whole, "just shot by Galvatron and about to crumble to ashes" origin better. It may not be official, but it is cooler and helps tie him in with the ghost version.

    I think I remember Draven mentioning it. The TF Wiki MW page also mentions it. It would seem that this is the official story ehobby used for the toy, though I cant find a copy of the story/spec itself

    I found the e-hobby bio and it says the black version is his new body after Machine Wars and the new colour scheme suits his showy personality etc.

    ■スタースクリーム ブラックバージョン■
      役割:追跡/捕獲員
      モットー:「征服とは、己の敵の遺骨から作られる」
      「マシンウォーズ」の戦いを経て、スタースクリームは更なる形態へ変貌。自己顕示欲のかたまりである彼本来の性分は、
    きらびやかなボディに見ることができるだろう。スタースクリームは黒と金の新らしい配色に思いのほか満足しているが、だか
    らといって戦いによる損傷を不安に思っているということは全く無い。むしろ今の姿で戦功を立てることこそが、自身のカリスマ
    を周囲にアピールできると確信。それは軍団を手中に納めた時に大きく役立つだろうと疑わない。彼の狡猾さはますます磨き
    がかかった。
