    Many of us know by now that a TF collectors club exclusive comming out is slipstream :thumbs2: . A retool and recolor of Prime starscream and set in the "Timelines" universe. Something that I thought of that I was wondering other's opinions on was...

    How will her character be represented. I dont mean her personality becuase I assume it will be the same snippy, sarcastic personality as her previous selves. What I mean is what will her bachground be, will she be starscream's clone, sister, just another seeker?

    what her backstory may be, anyone else have some opinions on this.

    I assume it'll be her basic character traits like her being related to Starscream etc.

    I assume just another seeker. Her being a clone isn't integral to her character nor is her connection to Starscream.

    I don't think she's a clone. Just shares SS's body-type.

    I think it'll depend on who's she's packed with. If she's with Jackpot, I'm sure she'll have a history with him. If she's with Scourge, maybe they'll be partners.

    All I know is Slipstream's getting some sort of figure until Hasbro gets off thier lazy asses and makes a WFC/FoC version.

    What? A club exclusive Slipstream!!! I'm still thinking about getting one last group of TF toys (I still can't decide on which reasonably priced ones I would get) and I would very much like a Slipstream. But I'm not joining the collectors club or paying ridicules Ebay prices. Fuck you Hasbro! Stop screwing me.

    Shouldn't it be 'Fuck you Club'? They are the ones putting it out probably at $60

    Can they do that without Hasbros permission? And there is the fact that Slipstream has been around for several years and Hasbro still hasn't made a toy of her themselves.

    I'm just happy she finally has a figure that's official not to mention having a mold that fits her perfectly.

    She'll be a little tough to get but still she looks to be a nice adution to my collection of femmes. :)

    Not that it really matters that much, but I'm curious what universe TFCC Slipstream will be part of. Prime/Aligned seems an obvious choice, and even Animated is possible with a little selective imagination. Knowing the club tendencies, She'll probably be presented under Wings of Honor, or even the Shattered Glass/Classics clusterfuckiverse.

    They're doing it WITH Hasbro's permission. Every toy they make is approved by Hasbro. And Slipstream has had it easy, just ask G1 Arcee.

    Maybe she's ment to be part of the IDW-verse?

    If its WoH, than maybe Slipstream's using some sort of upgraded bodytype.

    Or maybe she's just Prime Slipstream.

    I honestly don't see that show would do her justice.

    Which is saying a lot considering where she came from.
