    I'm looking into getting either the regular release of masterpiece starscream(takara version of course) or the ghost. I love the seeker mold. on the one hand, I like the regular release because of the fact that......well.....it's starscream! You can't go wrong with Starscream! On the other hand, I like the ghost version for it's uniqueness and the nice display options that a clear variant holds. What do you guys think; regular or ghost????

    Depends, is it going to be your only MP figure? Do you generally collect obscure figures? Are you a Starscream fan?

    If you are also getting Skywarp and Thundercracker, I'd get the regular release Screamer.

    When you say "regular" release of the Takara version, it kinda implies you mean the original or first version which has the green-ish deco.

    Please could you specify wether you mean this one or the G1 (ie white, red & blue) version? :thumbs2:

    Ya, I really the ghost version, especially for the price. I also like the actual Masterpiece box, the display options, and it's overall unique nature.

    I have all versions of MP Starscream, and if I had to only choose one, it would be the Hasbro version in G1 colors. I love the ghost, but I say get that one first.

    I was wondering this too,when I read the thread starter.

    I had the original Takara MP Starscream in those weird colors. I later sold it because I bought the walmart MP Starscream that I liked better in colors.

    I'm getting both. I can't have regular Starscream without having his Ghost. Plus, I plan on eventually getting "Green"Scream and renaming him AcidStorm.

    Get Regular "white" Starscream first, then get his ghost.

    Since i don't buy MPs often, I personally would go for the Ghost StarScream and make it a true centerpiece item.
    put it on top of a LED, and let it glow...

    also, if you want a MP figure and then not feel the pull of having to spend Major Coin on getting the other MP Seekers, the Ghost 'Screamer makes it easy.

    Once you get all the originals, you'll eventually want to get the Igear's Coneheads. I'm aiming for those next year. :)

    At the BBTS price, I would go with the Ghost right now. I bit on it yesterday at that price. Can't say which I like better since it is still sitting in my POL, but you gotta get em all eventually, so you may as well get that one while it is on sale (atleast that is my thought process with the MPs).

    If it's on sale, definitely go for the Ghost. A "living" Masterpiece Starscream is a definite buy down the line though.
