    Will there be a deluxe Starscream in the TFP RiD collection? I looked on the TF wiki, but there wasn't one listed, which I found odd. I'd be willing to wait, but if there's not gonna be a deluxe version, I wanna hurry up and snag the first edition now before the price skyrockets again. Although, I also read that there will be a voyager SS coming out. Is he preferrable to the first edition? (I did take a look at him, and his weapons are hideous, but I'm wondering if they can be removed.)

    I don't think the deluxe versions of Optimus, Megatron, or Starscream will be released in the PRID line, sorry but it's the truth. Thank god that I found my FE Starscream at my local TRU just before the FE line was cancelled.

    The Voyager Starscream will have the same Powerizer gimmick as the other Prime Voyagers, with translucent forearms and a light-up weapon. I don't know of any plans for a Deluxe version in the RID line, but that's not to say it's out of the question. They are repainting the FE one in that boxed set with Bumblebee and a few human figures.

    God damn. D: I don't want to pay $40 on Amazon for him, but it looks like I might have to.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I might get the boxed set, depending on how I feel about the gimmicks the voyagers have. In jet mode, Screamer's weapon looks so damn ridiculous. If I can detach the weapon in jet mode and in robot mode, I might get it. This has usually been the case, but with this light-up gimmick, I'm not so sure they'll be detachable. :/

    Get the FE deluxe if you can - he's a great toy. I'd pay $40 to get him.

    You don't think it'll be detachable? Uh, well don't worry, it definitely is; the weapons on all of the PRID Voyagers come off. Furthermore, every one of them comes with a "normal" weapon in addition to the light-up one, and in Starscream's case, it's show-accurate single missiles that can attach to his wrists-- which is more than the Deluxe can say. I wouldn't count this toy out just yet.

    I cant see them not making a deluxe at some point or just releasing the first edition again under the RID line. They need a starscream to repaint 8 times. It would be foolish of them not to make a deluxe and churn out repaints like the classics line.

    I think he's the best TF Prime figure released to date, so I can definitely agree with hunting him down at all costs if that's what it comes to. However at the same time, I've seen people on here listing him at close to retail + shipping, so I wouldn't jump to join the 40+ club yet. Like, I know that's really our only option for stuff like Vehicons & the voyagers, but for the FE Starscream, I think there's more than a good chance of finding him considerably lower because while the demand is still hungry, so was (and still is) the case for its availability too.

    I hadn't seen that picture of the Voyager Starscream before. Thanks. I'll be looking forward to that one now.

    It is? Damn Canada and Asia. We should raid Canada of thier FE Prime figures. No remorse. No survivors. Only victory.

    Wait. does it have a chance to be releaced in the US?
