    Looks kinda neat, but not neat enough that I'd pay whatever it'd cost to import it.

    You'll change your tune when they release it in blue.

    I'm not surprised by this KO. It was bound to be made at some point (kinda surprised though that it took this long to do). I might get one to turn into Sunstorm, as he's the only one left that I haven't gotten a figure to kitbash into yet.

    I totally thought that watermark was some sort of bow at first.

    It's good they have a watermark, so no one will take credit for their pictures of a BOOTLEG starscream.

    Anyone know for sure if this is a regular size Classics Starscream KO?

    Because if he's upscaled at all, I would be all over this! :)

    I bet it's either blank, some random show that has nothing to do with transformers, or just a plastic disc. XD

    It isn't?? If I remember correctly, people were "dying" of anticipation for classics Seekers to get bootleged. So they could kitbash/customize them into botcon exclusive classics seekers.

    I've seen cheap Chinese KO figures that come with discs like this... (GranSazer KO's anyone?), and it probably is a working disk, most likely about an episode's worth of a TF cartoon, dubbed in Chinese. My GranSazer disks have some episodes and clipshows on them.

    I believe the ones I have are actually VCDs, though I can't imagine in this day and age that VCDs are really that much cheaper to produce than DVDs.
