    I didn't buy it as the G1 colors really don't work like they do on Jazz, but haven't seen any other sightings posted in N&R yet. Spotted one this morning at SuperTarget in Hopkins, a suburb of Minneapolis. If I'd have had my coffee this morning I would have thought to snap a camera phone pic for the frontpage.

    I don't really dig the G1 repaint either, but I will get Thundercracker. For some reason, Starscream's G1 colors always screamed "Autobot" to me.

    Your cat looks a little like Donald Trump.

    Does the Starscream have a different DPCI number like the Jazz does for the deluxes?

    Wasn't he intended to be the "good guy" of the Diaclone jet pair? With proto-Thundercracker being the "bad guy?" That could be why his lighter, brighter colorscheme seems more "heroic."

    I could be misinformed about that, somebody please set me straight if I am.

    Anyway, sweet, I'm glad to hear this guy is released. I prefer Thundercracker and the original movie Starscream, but I still think this guy looks well worth purchasing. Now if only my local Targets would GET A FEW IN STOCK. Ugh. I've been checking twice a week, and I've still never even seen '08 Bumblebee, Arcee, or Dreadwing.... and now the NEXT wave is showing up?!? I'm really falling behind, through no fault of my own. Sigh. :( 

    (Standard disclaimer: I know as an American fan, I have NO right to complain about distribution... my apologies to fans in the UK and other less Transformer-saturated spots around the globe.)

    So far I've seen none of the repaints, despite a Jazz sighting in the area. I hope these get easier to find as time goes on...

    I'll have lunch at my desk today and go back and take a pic on the shelf if it's still there. I'll get that DPCI # too, by scanning Starscream on the price computer.

    This has to be a seperate DPCI, like Jazz and the Target Scouts. This Target has been low on Voyagers like the rest of the country so I'm sure it was just put in that spot.

    I did not know that he had the head re-mold, but I like the thundercracker re-paint better

    Cool! I want! Probably would have to wait until next Botcon to get it.

    The only new Transformer I've seen since the initial launch is Ultimate Bumblebee. Everything else is cleaned out wherever I go.

    The colors look okay. Not very realistic for a real world jet. But, I'm a sucker for exclusives so I'll probably pick him up.
