    As much as I mocked it when it was first shown, I really want one, but not for that kind of money. A Reluctant pass for me.

    Those HD-DVD Emblems on the wings are awesome!

    I'd get it if it was cheaper. I do think the colors are awkward, but it would be a cool piece to have.

    What did you pay? Do you guys think these are as limited as a lucky draw?

    Christ on a bike that's a steep price. Maybe for $250 less at most, but I don't see one of these becoming part of my collection unless I win a few lotteries.

    It is a toy related thread, so is better suited to the Transformers toy section.
    Don' worry about it.

    Especially in Japan were the format has virtually faded from existence.

    Yes- the film was released in Japan with an all-Japanese voice cast that featured Tessho Genda as Optimus Prime, who voiced the character in Japanese G1.

    The figure is probably more valuable than the HD-DVD player on the secondary market.

    Given the cost of getting the figure in Japan in the first place, if you really want it, I think you'll probably have little choice but to bite the bullet and get it for that price. It's not as if you can expect a cheap Hasbro alternative down the road, the way people who got the Lawson's Blackout felt after the revelation of the Premium Blackout.

    :lol 

    I love this phrasing--implies the HD-DVD player is like an added incentive to buy the Starscream. Only we would automatically see it that way.
