Overheard between two Hasbro designers at BotCon 2007... Hasbro thought about and inquired Takara-Tomy on producing the unproduced TransTech Starscream toy to be in the last wave of the Cybertron toyline. However, during the time that the mold was shipped from Hasbro to Takara-Tomy, the mold went missing (not being shipped for production but for the usual mold-shipping purposes). Hence its absence during the Hasbro tour in 2007. To be more specific: Me: So why wasn't TransTech on tour, considering how much the fanboys went nuts about it? Hasbro #1: We talked about putting the Starscream mold in Cybertron, and we had shipped the mold off to Takara-Tomy. Hasbro #2: We couldn't get it back for the tour because Takara-Tomy lost the mold. Image for reference. Shame, huh?
