    Hi all. I have reason to believe that Starscream with the Megatron Gun is going to be reissues sans the Optimus Prime / convoy fist to hold megatron.

    I predict this will either be a Hasbro commemorative reissue tying to the movie or it will be another reissue in the Takara Encore line. Why do you ask? Because I recently acquired a newish prototype of the TFC 9 Starscream with megatron gun. The copyright stamp is the encore seeker mold copyright that is shared by encore starscream, skywarp, thundercracker, and sunstorm!

    So this is not the original TFC 9 proto, but instead a different one. To clarify, TFC 9's copyright says 2002, as it was the last of the Starscream reissues of the early 2000's

    I added some photos of my recent stuff to my Flickr, which I do not do very often.

    This includes the Starscream prototype. Enjoy

    Could this be considered news for TFW? Just a thought.

    The missiles would lead me to believe Encore. Unless the firing mechanism is removed from the launchers (is it?) I would lean towards an Encore release. If they don't fire it could be Hasbro though.

    Ok I plugged in a sunstorm missile and fires like the dickens. Probably encore then.

    Yeah. Hasbro nixed the skinny missiles for the fatties to allow them to fire. Since these are mini and fire they aren't Hasbro.

    Thats a pretty neat looking seeker. I already have SS and have kitbashed 4 other seekers into soldiers for my Destron Air-Force to make a total of 14 (so far) g1 seekers, so I'm not interested in another SS. Protos are pretty cool though, thanx for the pics.
