    Someone mentioned this is the News and Rumors thread about MP Starscream showing up in the U.S.

    A lot of us want this figure, it's going to be more difficult to find other TFs, especially due to scalpers, so here's an official thread for posting purchases and make deals with fellow members. My goal with this? That every person who wants one is able to get at least one at cost + whatever shipping. For those who want to help out international members first, great. If you want to send it to whoever is closest to you, fine. Farthest, also good. The only thing that I even consider a "rule" is that I'd like to see everyone who wants one get one first before shipping multiples to one person. But again, I'm not enforcing or complaining if someone decides to do differently, and I'm not trying to stipulate how you have to participate in this. It's a service, pure and simple, that I hope will hook the people who want one with the people who can find them (and vice versa!) in order to help ensure that ALL of us who are passionate about Transformers and want this figure are able to secure one for ourselves.


    EDIT: Here's how the list works. As of right now, everyone's name is in bold. Once you get your figure, I'm asking people to PM me or post and let me know. If you were only looking for one, you will be removed from the list entirely. If you were looking for multilples, your name will be unbolded and an asterix placed in front, so the people who still need a first one will stand out by staying bold, while others who are still looking for one will stay on the list at a lower priority.

    For example, let's say I wanted 4 Starscreams. Initally, my name would look like this on the list:

    Peaugh: 4

    And let's say I then managed to get two at my local Wal-mart. My name in the list would change to look like this:

    *Peaugh: 2

    As long as everyone lets me know when they get their SS's, we can keep an accurate look at who's gotten what, with priority given to those names in bold who have yet to get a SS.


    Please, if you're able to help, help who you can. If we all do what we can we'll all get one.

    Anyway, on to the list!

    I need one, and I have the money right now. If you have a confirmed Paypal address and can provide pictures, I can pay immediately. I'll even take the cheapest, slowest shipping, too.

    Thanks, Peaugh. (Always love that Astley sig!!)

    I'm looking for 1 or 2 as I am in Canada also.

    I imagine this thread will be quite one-sided for a good while though as really this guy has only come out at 2-3 stores in the whole USA. Everyone's so eager, and rightly so I suppose (but we must have patience).

    EDIT: oh, I have misb 08BB, g1 jazz, and tons of g1 to trade if that helps coax anyone in the upcoming weeks.

    I'm in Fremont CA and need 1.

    Likewise, I will pick up any that I see and post them here for sale in the order that people have replied to this post.

    Put me in with the "out in the cold in Canada" camp. I need some G1 Starscream love!

    I've got money available immediately and PAYPAL, so I'm ready to go.

    I actually have some American friends keeping a lookout for me so if I chance to get one first, I could always check and see if I can get more as well.

    Here's hoping that once these figures start showing up, there will be more around to meet the demand. Sigh.

    I WANT one. I'll be able to pay right away. If I find any around my area I'll hook up as many people as my credit card allows. Happy hunting and damn the scalpers.

    I'm in for ONE myself. I have money set aside to buy three of them should I come across them.

    For the record, I stay away from WalMart as a rule. But for this instance I'll set my personal politics aside for the good of the fandom.

    Unfortunately the scalpers already have a head start on this guy judging by the number of them on Ebay, but with enough determination and communication we should be able to make sure everyone who wants one gets one.

    Also, just speaking for myself but I will not supply anyone with more than one Starscream. I know a lot of people like to have two or more, which is fine, but I'm not going to support that, at least not until everyone who wants one has one.

    Also also, I will be looking out for my fellow local collectors first and formost.

    Yeah, no offense to the MIBers, but everyone who needs one should get them first. If you want one, and everyone gets him, and there're still some left/available for you to get a second, more power to you.

    But, it's not fair to others if one person gets two, while some don't get any. Does everyone agree that this is fair?

    Seems fair to me, even if I'm a MISB'er ;) 

    I actually need 3 - lol - two for me (one MISB, one to play with) and one for a friend... so if anyone gets spares, even if it's just one, let me know, I can pay over Paypal immediately (I'm in the uK)

    I'll see what I can do to help. Although if I do find some, the most I can do is pick up one extra. I only want one for myself, and luckily I have about 3 wal-marts that I can go to once a week or more.
