    I was reading the news on AV Watch this morning and came across a picture of a red movie Starscream. Toshiba was launching their new HD DVD recorder and had the toy on display to help promote the movie. I translated it using Excite and it sounds like the toy will be given to people that buy the recorder.

    The Toshiba RD-A301 is expected to cost about 100,000 Yen ($868US) so this will not be a cheap exclusive.

    It's very red. Not a bad idea, but it could have used some more gold and black to break up the red.

    The text in the picture calls him Starscream Vardia Red Model. (Vardia is the name of Toshiba's HD-DVD player(s).)

    I don't think I'll be getting him, though amusingly, the first thought that came to my mind when I saw it was "Fire Bomber!". Macross fans will get what I mean.

    I'm happy for anyone who gets Pink Screamer, I'll never own one nor do I care. HD players are cheaper too.

    For what ever reason I really like those colors on him. But not $800 bucks worth.

    It's going to suck for the hardcore completists if they want one of these. I'm not a fan of the coloring on this one, quite frankly it looks awful. If it were dark red instead of pink, then it would be cool.
