    That's new. Though it doesn't really show us anything new besides the plastic tray that a loose one will be shipped in.

    $130 shipped. That's actually a fair price for a voyager.

    Considering that he's a Botcon exclusive and there's no hidden shipping charges that's not a bad deal no. Still, if I want any of these guys I think I'll wait until Botcon when the guys who bought extras loose sets (no not the scalpers... the guys who always buy the loose set with the interest of recouping their costs... I'd be surprised if there were any scalpers at all) will be putting there's up on eBay. These guys will be all over the place than.

    Listing ended early due to item being lost or broken. Wonder what that means.

    Starscream comes with an Earth key. Weird.

    Maybe Starscream is the one who left Cybertron and crashed on Earth?

    Not that I care, but this is pretty weak to be front page news. Just saying...

    Not really. Botcon is only a few weeks away, and this is the first Botcon Starscream we've seen in the tray the bagged version will be sold in. I'd call that newsworthy.

    Makes sense, with Dreadwing and Alpha Trion both having trays last year.

    How long until BBTs puts them on preorder? They put Ricochet out already.

    Primal's bagged Set version also had a tray in 2006, so there's really nothing of particular surprise about it.

    I dunno, I think I can only really except repaints if they are smokescreen and bots like that. I can't get into the starscream repaint.

    I understand the relevance of the tray. But it's just a tray! Now if it came wrapped in toilet paper, I could see the interest. Maybe it's just me. :p
