    I wish TakTom would shelve the Nike Free mold already. If they want to continue the Sports line bring on the Air Force 1's, some Jordan's, Air Max's, anything.

    Hey, Draven... do you like the Nike TFs? I can never tell. :D  :p  But yes, that headsculpt IS awful. And those kibble bits make BWNeo Break look downright tidy.

    Anywho, I doubt this is supposed to be Starscream any more than Marine Convoy is supposed to be Magnus. Maybe it's "Burning Tinactin Megatron".

    I find it really odd that we haven't heard about this guy yet.

    I mean, Takara protos are a rare occurrence in the first place, but when was the last time we saw a test shot of a Takara toy we hadn't even heard about before?

    Wow, and I thought Movie Starscream was a bogus incarnation of the character. You can almost call this one anything... red alert, frenzy/rumble, swerve.... the possibilities are endless. :lol

    This is exactly why I think it's some sort of special give away/lucky draw repait of some kind. An exclusive.


    He's still hideous.

    The PRime and Megatron were nice little oddities, but can we please stop already? 4 times using a mold in a line of toys that consists of one mold is enough!

    I'd get it for the Starscream factor, nothing else.

    I agree. And they are milking it to death already. It wouldn't be so bad if the original toy (can't really call it toys on account of a headswap IMO) wasn't so downright awful looking.

    The head looks awefully photoshopped to me and it looks like Animated Starscream for some reason.

    And yes, the Nike Frees are ugly but man are they COMFORTABLE.

    It's still just a repainted Megatron head, far as I can tell. they have done a little better job trying to "Starscreamify" it through painting, but still.

    I hope shoe fans are getting something out of this, because "sports label" feels like a joke so far - an entire line of ONE lackluster Deluxe-equivalent mold (and maybe a head remold here or there)

    Put me in the photoshop corner. That and the fact we never heard of this till now makes me think this is a scam.
