    nobody KNOWS but I'm gonna go with NO *L* they already had a great opportunity, but recolored it. Hasbro says we already have a cyb starscream. I bet we get it repainted again though , possibly skywarp or ramjet, thanks to the exclusive LOCs...

    Yeah, I wouldn't hold your breath for it. Just order a GF Screamer. Should be able to find one for fairly cheap nowadays too.

    I'm just getting the TRU one. haven't got Vector Prime yet anyway...

    I'll agree that they missed out big time on not releasing the smaller one. This isn't like the Superlink Galvatron/Energon Megatron thing. that was only a slight upscale from Ultra to Super... Cybertron starscream goes from Mega to Supreme without much alteration to the mold at all... he's like a giant bootleg GF screamer!

    The last Cybertron Voyagers on the release schedule are Nemesis Breaker and Quickmix/Stripmine in June/July. Soundwave hasn't had a confirmed release date yet, and there will be a whole year to go before the movie in July 2007. Voyager size Starscream in original colors would make an excellent filler figure, ala nearly any boxed figure in the last half of Energon. And I wouldn't put it past Hasbro to keep it on the DL until the King Starscream and SS/VP sets are clearanced out. I'd wait until Toy Fair in February to know more clearly what 2006 will continue to bring us.

    Oh, and they should shrink the crown and include it too.

    Gotta look at the grander scheme of things. Nobody would buy a Supreme Starscream if there was a smaller $20 version.

    Anyway, hamutaro, here you go: http://www.jrstoyworld.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=453

    $24.99 + 5.99 flat rate shipping. Good ol' JRS :thumbs2:

    We most likely will, just not in this line. It will likely be a repaint seen in another, filler line. Or possibly it will be seen in the next mainline, only named thrust or something like that

    I'm still holding hope he might get a second release in the final waves of the line, by which point Supreme Starscream probably won't be available at most stores (aside from stock sitters like KB or tRU), EVERY store near me is clearancing Screamer, and I find it odd that Hasbro would go a year with one of their core Decepticons MIA, especially given how prominant he has been in the series.

    If you ask me, it'll never happen since they already released him in the 2 pack with vector prime. I know he's not GF colors, but it won't matter to hasbro

    Yeah I'm holding out to see the smaller one released. I know I rather buy that one then that bootlegish Supreme one. No release date on Soundwave yet :mad  man I hope we don't get screwed out of this great fig, Hasbro better not pull a Bandia shafting job on us.

    Other then that though I probably will just get the Starscream/VP 2 pack. Atleast get the right size.

    I would guess on a Sunstorm repaint since that's likely the regular release LOC we'll be getting.

    I'd say probably. Hasbro have to stretch the line a good deal yet...... maybe torwards the end of the toy line when TRU have had a chance to sell the two pack out.
