    That is the question, will we get a PRID deluxe Starscream?
    We've gotten updates of all the FE figures in the same classes (excluding the entertainment pack) except Starscream.

    FE dlx Arcee = PRID dlx Arcee
    FE dlx Bumblebee = PRID dlx Bumblebee
    FE dlx Cliffjumper = PRID dlx Cliffjumper
    FE voy. Optimus Prime = PRID voy. Optimus Prime
    FE voy. Bulkhead = PRID voy. Bulkhead(unreleased)
    FE dlx Starscream = PRID voy. Starscream(unreleased)

    Do u think we will ever get a PRID deluxe class Starscream?
    Personally, I hope we do get one b/c,

    A. People unable to get the FE Starscream could better acquire a PRID dlx as a replacement
    &
    B. It would be better in-scale with the PRID voy. Megatron

    Tell me what you think. Would you like one? Do you think we'll get one? Would you buy it?:)

    No. Give the spot to a new character.

    We're getting a Voyager. Don't see a deluxe happening.

    If they're releasing FE Starscream again, Hasbro may as well do the same with deluxe Megatron. As far as I'm concerned, Megatron isn't so much taller than his second in-command.

    But to everyone who's seen the show, they might prefer Megatron suitably tower over Starscream.

    There is a RiD deluxe Starscream. He came packaged with Bumblebee, A MECH trooper and Leland Bishop.

    Those are actually the FE molds of each character, despite what the package says.

    The FE Starscream is fantastic, but sadly that ship might have sailed at US retail. The voyager may stil be pretty good, apart from the crappy MechTech weapon.

    Be nice to see for those that never got the deluxe version, but I don't see it happening.

    Oh I know that. It's just a technicality is all. Mind you I got the package during the time Hasbro still called Deluxes and Voyagers Revealers and Powerisers, The packaging for RID/FE BB/SS Made no mention of those names what so ever.

    Very true. I remember checking my package and not seeing the names.

    It's not exactly unprecedented. In Cybetron, we got Starscream in two size classes. I don't see why that can't happen here.

    And the jerks still never released him in the Voyager range in his show colors!
    *Steevy is still bitter over that*


    But yeah, if Prime is slated to run for a couple more years yet (reportedly season 3 is in production, which alone drags the show into 2014), I see no reason Hasbro wouldn't slate another run for Starscream, Optimus, and Megatron in the deluxe pricepoint at some point in the future, especially around Christmas when the extra core characters would probably move.
    I don't get this perception that Hasbro won't based on some obtuse reasoning that "they already got another mold" Animated, in its one paltry year of full support, got FIVE freakin' Optimus Prime molds. Starscream may not be OPtimus level support, but he's pretty high up on that totem poll.

    Well, there is always the "we'll re-release the FE molds later" thing that Hasbro said earlier. Maybe Starscream will see another deluxe release later - I don't believe it would be this year though.

    Exactly. Besides, if we don't get many new additions to the cast, they're quickly going to run out of characters. So why not make some characters in multiple size classes?

    I strongly believe that we will get FE Starscream re-released as a Revealer, with some slight retooling done to parts like his wings/arms for 5mm ports. The only other thing they might do is change the head mechanism so that it flips up when you transform that section back, similar to what they did with Soundwave. It's a great figure already, and it's easily got the potential to be a "revealer" like the other Deluxes. It's even the same general size as Soundwave, so it's not too big for the RID line.
