    Well this one isn't from the Hartmans! But since it IS a pretty famous and rare unreleased piece I figure it's at least newsworthy (No it isn't mine!....mine is loose...)

    I love that mold.....

    My knowledge on this one is a bit off;

    Was this version of the mold scheduled to be released after
    Dreadwing and Smokescreen??

    Or did it get Scrapped, and then repalced by Dreadwing and Smokescreen.

    If I only had the spare cash right now. That would look good in my Starscream collection.

    yeah, what I don't understand is the value of this, since really the only thing about it is the box. like said before, this color scheme was released in bw2, and I got that one for like $35.

    As the seller mentions, there are several small differences in stickers and plastic coloration. Loose it'd still be worth more than the bw2 version, but only to hardcore collectors. MISB is really special, especially with the pic of the soundwave lasercycle.

    If I had the money, I'd buy it...then I'd open the box. :D

    Cool. I love the deco (I own Starscrem and BB)...and it actually looks better without the chrome on the wings as seen in this auction. Plus the price just might be worth it to finally have "Starscream" spelled correctly (Does Reprolables have a fix for that?). Anyway, very cool piece. The first rare G2 auction where the figure itself is actually cool. :D 

    And geez, how hard is it to work a point-n'-shoot?

    I don't know about that. Unlike the stuff they put up, this was actually released in the test market, so there's actually several of these out there. I'd have to say it would be closer to someone selling a Galva Lio Convoy, or the gold Beast Wars Metals Convoy vs. Megatron set. It's limited, but there's more than one or two.

    well, I deem this newsworthy, and enough so that I frontpaged it. On top of that, I ran by Tony himself before I did it. THAT is confirmation enough for me. :)

    It's an unreleased toy (and a beautiful one too), up for auction. I'd call that pretty damn newsworthy.
    Oh, and good luck, Jon; I know how much you want one of these!

    Yeah, I've always been a bit surprised in all the hubbub around this piece. I've tracked down a lot of rarities over the years, but never had any interest whatsoever in this one. Good luck to those who are after it, though!
