    According to the text, details will be announced about the specifics of the figure in late May. Until then, all we get is the outline of the Starscream mold.

    Credit goes to Autobase Aichi for the find.

    UPDATE: A few more details, thanks to a translation I received.

    It's a Toy Hobby Market exclusive that will be available at Ganbo. The additional announcement in May will be from Ganbo and the Japanese toy hobby magazines.

    I highly doubt it becuse it's the original Starcream mold, not the conehead retool.
    Everyone probably wants it to be Thundercracker, but we'll probably end up getting Skywarp(Not that that's a bad thing, I'd love to see him get the Henkei treatment.)Sunstorm would be cool also.

    repaints per se dont excite me but the SS mould is one of my fave TF ever, looks great anway but a very nice evolution of the G1 toy, satisfying and simple to TF. Ironically though i dont care for the SS colours, i bought the skywarp instead. Hopefully a good repaint, maybe thundercracker, but with the henkei differences??

    I would LOVE for it to be Thrust, but I bet it will end up being Skywarp or Thundercracker, or maybe BOTH!

    If a few more stores start announcing Henkei exclusives, I can buy into the fact that they may do Thundercracker, Thrust, or Dirge.

    Until then, I'll put odds on Skywarp, Sunstorm, or the Ghost of Starscream.

    PLEASE be Thundercracker...!! >.<
    But if it's really an exclusive, like never seen in any form before, it's probably Sunstorm.

    As history has shown us with japanese repaints... Sunstorm, Black Starscream, Clear Starscream and Skywarp all come before Thundercracker.

    I would bet Sunstorm.

    Edit: we all know this thread won't end well!

    Ah, it'll be fun watching this thread degenerate.

    So with that in mind I'll keep my opinions to myself this one time.

    I'd like to see Sunstorm myself. Or the generic 'lavander' seeker Season 1 colors... or the random Green Seeker from the first episode that's never recieved any love.

    Oh, and this thread certainly won't end well... I give it another hour before people come in with the usual Botcon Thundercracker dreams/desires/hopes and miss-placed hatred of FP & Hasbro.

    PLEASE let it be Thundercracker!!!!! * Crosses fingers and prays* Also, I hope this exclusive doesn't mean it'll be extremely limited like G1 Movie Deluxe Arcee.

    Sure hope it doesn't end up being limited to only 1000 pieces or even worse 100 pieces.

    Does exclusive mean "store exclusive"? I.E. it'll only be sold at certain stores?
