    Not news. WST are actually easy to reproduce, thought someone on staff here knows one of the guys. No way official, and most likely not even a 'rare variant' ... but more of a custom replicate.

    These knockoffs should come in a bag like skittles, so you get all the different colors they make.

    there already is an orange one :lol  he's had clear sunstorm on ebay two different times, both with 20 available initially. green would be sweet, he'd go perfectly with the green loc I dyed, but honestly, I'd rather see a clear maroon thrust first, that'd knock out 5 of the 7 seeker characters.

    Oh geeze, so now that SS is black, does that make him *more* evil or nemesis?

    I'm sorry, but this repaint shit is just ridiculous. More ridiculous are the people that get excited for it AND actually buy it. Guess there's a lot of money to be made of die hard's who can't excercise proper judgement.

    Ebay, here I come!

    first of all its hardly a repaint. its a KO, and its just different colors of translucent plastics. secondly, when Starscream was reissued a few years ago, Ehobby released a black translucent one. For those who got that one, its not exactly a stretch to see that those same people would like to have a WST version to display with the full-sized one (or the RM one at that). If it was an official product, I could understand your complaint, but its not. besides, maybe someone out there will buy this just because they prefer this color over another? not everyone who buys it will be someone who's a completist.

    Yeah, same here. What's the beef with Paypal-only? I thought it would give you an extra layer of security over checks or money orders, and it's definitely faster.

    It's not so great for sellers, as Paypal skim a percentage off the top, and they tend to be very quick to limit accounts, as they have done with me. I can't even use paypal now as they decided to limit my account due to alleged 'suspicious activity' when I hadn't even used the account for a few weeks! I wouldn't touch them with a bargepole now.

    Not quite correct- they did a translucent 'ghost' version in normal colors, and a seperate black/grey/gold version in solid colors. I've got the black one, it's really sharp. Still need the ghost.
