    According to Wikipedia....and yes i know wiki can have false information...but under the Transformers Movie Toy List, they have a Supreme listing, between Leader Class and Ultimate Class for a toy called Sky Storm, a redeco of Cybertron Supreme Starscream in colors which are a homage to "Energon" Megatron.

    I did a quick search of the forums...but I can never find anyting when searching lol

    wiki page

    Has anyone heard of this?

    No. First time I've heard of it myself. I suppose it could be a store exclusive of some kind given that any repaint from a former line has always been a store exclusive in the movie line, but I find it hard to believe that this one slipped by everyone like that.

    If true I'd buy one...

    Interesting. First time I've ever heard of it. If it is true, I'd actually consider buying it. It's a little surprising, but then again the repaint of Armada Red Alert was surprising to me. Hopefully if it's true and a store exclusive of some kind, it's a Target exclusive.

    I'd say it's too late in the game for it to be legit. We'd have heard about it at Botcon.

    True, but we also didn't hear about the three new Target Scout repaints from botcon, yet we have photo proof of them. This repaint of Supreme Starscream is still a bit unlikely imo, but it's definetly not completely out of the question.

    Exactly, while it's very out of left field... given what keeps happening with various other exclusives (where they creep up on us) I'd not entirely rule it out.

    And, as for being too late in the game... well, I'm of the opinion that Hasbro will probably try to keep the movie line alive for a little while longer in the form of store exclusives. So, this would fit right in with that.

    Granted, I'm taking this with a grain of salt, but it's possible.

    Sounds interesting. I'm wondering about the quote marks around 'Energon'; for some reason that makes me thing it's referring to something other than the Megatron from the Energon line, but I can't think what that might be.
    If it is an homage to Energon Megs, then surely it'd be similar colours - or at least similar main colour, as both are predominantly grey. But barring the Megs thing, you know what came to my mind first when I saw the name in conjunction with the mould?

    Skyquake. Now that would be a cool homage.

    I'd much rather see a Primus repaint.

    The thing that gives me the biggest doubts about the validity of this is that although it's on Wikipedia, nobody actually seems to have heard of it. There's also no mention at all of it at the Teletraan-1 wiki.

    Yeah, I've been searching the net just to see if it was something that slipped under everyone's radar and I've turned up zilch. Like I said... it's not impossible, but I'm taking this whole thing with a major grain of salt. Shame too... Supreme Starscream is a cool toy and has lots of repaint potential (outside of Thundercracker & Skywarp too).

    I'd love it if it were true. But like Laser Op I'm definitely ingesting a big ol' bowl of salt with this info for now.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this turned out to be true, to be an exclusive to Costco for the holidays.

    i have been searching as well for more info on this but no luck.

    This isn't even on my list to have as I'm mainly focused on the deluxe line, but if its cool enough, it might warranty a purchase.

    Actually, in my opinion, not Thundercracker and Skywarp; I was never that bothered about the Supreme Strscream anyway and didn't pick it up; I was tempted to pick it up if I saw it on clearance for kitbashing, but it never happened.

    However, definite redeco potential, I think, for Skyquake (as I mentioned earlier) and Jetfire (in the manner now of SG Starscream), among others...


    But yeah, considering a Google search for "transformers supreme sky storm" turns up only two relevant results, #2 being the Wikipedia article, and #1 being this thread, I think it's a very high-sodium listing.

    I'm going to call complete and total BS

    First off, Supreme Starscream was a shelfwarmer in many areas and Hasbro said they wanted to get away from making bigger TFs.

    Second, his alt mode isn't realistic at all, not even based on anything real-ish, so there's no chance of him fitting in with the movie line repaints, all of which use real world-esque Alt modes.

    Unless I see official pics of this thing, I'm gonna consider that listing as fake.
