    1) Please use capital letters appropriately. Proper punctuation would help, too.

    2) GF Starscreams got snatched up because people liked both the size and the color scheme of the Japanese release, so they fetch a bit more nowawdays. The TRU voyager size is kinda rare due to it being a store exclusive. As for big giant Starscream...no clue. I bet there's still some on store shelves somewhere.

    I would say he's fairly rare, but then again, there isn't a high demand for him either. Ebay has 2 on there for BIN. One costs 60.00, the other is 62.00. I got mine for 40.00 when GF first came out.

    I got my GF Starscream back in July of last year, as part of a huge lot from Ebay.

    The TRU 2-pack with Vector Prime still clogs shelves here, I'd get it now its only £15, but I just cant justify a third Vector Prime.

    The problem is more to do with both Voyager Starscreams being retained by collectors rather than them being rare in terms of actual numbers produced.

    Eh?

    Anyway, I would imagine that it's a rarity now mostly due to US/non Japanese collectors who didn't spring for GF when it first came out wanting a Voyager sized Starscream rather than the King Kong size going back and picking them up once they realized they weren't going to get it here, thus increasing demand inordinately.

    Personally, I lucked out, and got both GF Starscream and Vector Prime for $25 bucks or so with an early bird special through HLJ, which laughably along with Noisemaze and DVD Noisemaze where the only GF figures I got from the line. Of them, 2 were altered while 2 never came out here. So, I won that game, you could say.

    I also count myself as being lucky; someone on the Transfandom Forums (name of HMRC4EVR, I believe) was dissatisfied with his Galaxy Force Starscream. As soon as he offered it up, I pounced on it.

    Yeah, I want one of those too, especially after getting the mold in the TRU 2-pack.

    On a related question... anybody have any ideas as to whether Hasbro might give us a not-exclusive repaint of the GF-sized Starscream in the future? Is there any reason why they wouldn't?

    As far as I know, they only used it the once for the 2-pack. It's a good mold, and it seems like a waste to be dredging up weaker Energon and Armada molds into eternity (armada Demolishor and Sideswipe again?? WTF?), when there's a mold here that's pretty sweet, AND that they haven't repainted a million times already.

    Aren't we about due for one? I don't even care what colour they go for. Just make it happen, Hasbro!

    I always thought they would release Starscream in GF colors near the end of Cybertron, as case filler. Buuuut noooooo, they had a better idea: Vector Prime repaint!
