    I'm new to the forums but definitly not new to this web site. Did I miss info on the release of the MP Starscream? The last thing I heard was it was a wal-mart exclusive and would be out at the end of September. What is the lastest info on this?? I need this toy!!

    No one knows when he's coming. I think November is a good guess.

    The USA version is a wal-mart exclusive. Though you can buy it for twice the price in japan as well.

    November may have "always" been the release month, but I share kipco's frustration. The Hasbro site itself said the toy was coming this September.

    Hasbro does not have release dates just ballpark estimates like "Fall" or "Spring". I would guess it should be out within the next month or so.

    My guess is that since it's a November release and an exclusive, it'll end up as a black friday special. I hope they make a buttload of them so there's no shortage.

    November 2007. Sorry, but release dates rarely get any more exact than that for toys.



    I hope you are wrong about it becoming a Black Friday special. I'd hate having to fight traffic and crowds to get MP SS, but I will do it if that's necessary.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure if my import store dude got the dates mixed up but I heard that the Takara's version will be out in January 2008, which IMO is unlikely as its too long.

    Where did you go to preorder it? I've been searching but I haven't seen any. :(  I don't want to have to tackle toy scalpers in the Walmart aisles.

    Edit: Nevermind. Found it. Lost & Found toystore.

    Man, if it is a black friday special I'm gonna have to get it on ebay. I cannot imagine waiting in line with 55 year old women trying to get their free 512mb mp3 player!

    If it is a Black Friday special, then maybe the price will be even lower (and therefore easier for me to afford!).

    I'm someone who would rather pay more for ease than dealing with B.F. morons.
