    Same here, but I dunno why; he looks awesome.

    We'll probably regret it once he's gone, or when the next movie comes out.

    Probably should pick him up :lol

    Meh, I've passed him up a half a dozen times now, plus he's still on sale at one of my Targets. I agree he looks pretty sweet, but I've lost interest in most of the movie figs, ah well.

    He's on clearance now. I would have saved myself $6 if I had waited.

    If you already have the mold, then passing on the repaint ain't a big deal, IMO. Good mold, just don't see the need to have more than one. If you don't have it, eh there's better figures out now, but he is worth having.

    I don't even have a Movie Starscream.

    I keep telling myself to save it for Animated, but somehow I think it'll bug me if I miss out on him and then can't afford a Leader Class version later on.

    I bought one, but returned it before I even opened it. The paint scheme looked fantastic; unfortunately, it's really a pretty flawed mold.

    I saw a TON of them at Super Target today... all on clearance, half off, and I still passed. Mostly cause I loaded up on Universe and some Animated that I've been foaming at the mouth trying to find the last two weeks and went $25 over what I had in my wallet as it was. (Friend got me Onslaught, love her!)

    damn, I really really want this guy, but don't have the cash, plus can't find him either, it'd be nice if I could get someone to hook me up with one on sale in a few weeks.

    My local targets have plenty, I too keep passing on them.

    There are other new molds I want, I already have original Movie Starscream and Thundercracker. Saving money for the universe figures and the 5 other animated figures I want (Swoop, Grimlock, Blitzwing, Magnus, and Jazz). Ironhide will probably be the only premium series toy I will buy, unless Megatron and Optimus get clearance (i've only seen desert brawl clearanced, he's the only movie leader left).

    I continually passed on him too. Then one day my wife brought him home from Target, not knowing I already had Movie SS. Boy I'm sure glad she did that because I like him a lot better. Now I'm looking to get rid of Movie SS and keep the Deep Space repaint.(I only want one of those molds.)

    Meh, I might buy him next week. I highly doubt anyone will buy it, since I saw around four there. $13 too.

    While I'm at it, might buy Leader Brawl Repaint

    I went ahead and bought one a month ago. The Target where I live had
    a shelf full of them. The other day I went in there and they only had one
    left. I would not doubt if that Target decided not to sell them anymore.

    Ha! What great timing!

    I just bought one today! On clearance for $13.00 @ TARGET (of course).

    He's WAY better than the first movie Starscream. Better paint, WAY more painted details, and he seems to hold together much better and have smoother moving joints than my original movie Starscream, which suffered from creaky/screechy joints and had trouble staying a robot.

    Go get him! You will not be disappointed!

    You did rather well then I had to take my first one back because the legs wouldn't stay on then had to disassemble the feet and file off excess plastic on the feet of the replacement to make them tight enough to stand.

    I will say that looks wise this is how the original should have been painted. I would like to have a talk with the person who decided to make the first one tan.
