    If you were Hasbro, would you release a repaint of Supreme Starscream, a retool of Supreme Starscream or forget that you ever made him in the first place?

    With the cheaper Voyager mold availble, I'd leave him in the vault next to Supereme Cheetor.

    Forget I made him in the first place, spray my hair with ashes and spend 5 years as a hermit, meditating on the meaning of life.

    Forget I ever made it and bring out the regular sized mold in its original colors as an apology.

    I still say that Starscream mold at any size was made for Skywarp, it's wrong of them to only release that mess of a repaint Toys R Us got. But the big one overstocked as it is, if I was Hasbro I would never have had so many made knowing what happened to Unicron and maybe make a repaint option possible.

    I would be all over a supreme sunstorm like photographers on Angelina Jolie. As for the skywarp and thundercracker repaints of voyager starscream, copy and past my last response.

    Supreme Starscream was a huge mistake. I think they know this and will just forget about him.

    Who cares when there's a smaller Voyager version out there which should be repainted into Sunstorm?
    I imported the Voyager size Starscream from Japan anyway.

    I'd much rather they released a repaint two pack of the Mega mold as Thundercracker and Skywarp in it's place. They could retool the swords or something if they were feeling generous.

    Hmmm... for the most part it seems the $50 Transformer toys aren't popular toys. I think they made it for the collectors, but like some others, my real estate isn't cheap and I don't have the room for Primus much less some cheap-ass "Supreme" Starscream. Puh-lease, Has-a-blow, make 'em cheaper and they will come!

    This isn't hard fact, and I havn't got any pictures, only written descriptions, but apparantly, there are some repaints of the Voyager that have been at least tested out. Specificially, the colors I was told were essentially those of Dirge, Ramjet (g1), Thundercracker (g1), Skywarp (like the SDCC 2005 LoC figure, but full size), Sunstorm (like the LoC figure but full size), and I believe the sixth version was something like BotCon 2005 Ramjet.

    If I was Hasbro, I'd let TFCC use the Supreme mold for a Botcon Skywarp/Thundercracker exclusive set. I'd watch them charge $300 for the set. Then I'd pee myself with laughter.

    Sadly, I think that would be a reasonable price for two exclusives of that size, unlike the smaller sets we've gotten.

    I LOVE Supreme Starscream.... and since day one have wanted re-paints of Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    On top of that I'd like to see 6 re-paints (with some minor re-tooling for the cone heads) for the voyager version.

    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Sunstorm
    Ramjet
    Thrust
    Dirge

    My, that list would look nice in plastic.

    I've said it before, the mold was a mistake.
    I got it for my 5 yr' old and he can't even stand it.

    It looks cheap and under detailed. I'm glad I got the 2 pk with Vec Prime.

    Not sure why has never re-painted the smaller version for the other seekers...

    Genius...you know people would buy it too.

    As for my opinion: I really like the Supreme Starscream, but for a repaint, I'd much rather have T Cracker and S Warp repaints of the Voyager mold...Especially Skywarp, those colors have been badass since 1984
