    Hasbro doesn't do Ghost Starscreams, that's Takara's gig. XD

    Anyways, I feel the same way about Starscream. Maybe it's... the Armada version?

    The Armada version would be really odd to come out now, without mention before, so long after Hot Shot.

    However a WFC makes a little more sense seeing as Soundwave just came out, and there's anotehr game coming.

    isn't WFC arcee a really really minor character?

    I think it's more likely she'll get the kup/wreck-gar treatment. Bit of a reimagining. New alt-mode.

    Just so long as she's not a motorcycle or a TRU exclusive I'll be happy I suppose.

    We've gone 4 waves without any WFC figures, so I thought it was done with, but perhaps they only just got enough material from High Moon (such as transformation schemes, etc.) to make it happen. Certainly would be a cool figure to own.

    Hasbro Isn't done with it they were just waiting to see how the intial WFC figures preformed before they make more. They've even mentioned that in q&A and whatnot. I wouldn't expect a huge onslaught of them but f generations keeps chugging along like it's rumored too, i would expect to see somne.

    I really don't think much unicron trilogy stuff hs much of a chance to get made it has no real lasting appeal. I really don't see much of a chance for armada starscream.

    But WFC starscream just seems like a given at this point even hasbro has hinted at the figure, plus it can be repainted into the seekers as well, so it's a wise figure choice financial choice. I also think WFC ratchet and ironhide could be made for the same reason as starscream.

    I love WFC and love all the designs and want to have them all as toys [i'd even get cannon fodder guys] but with arcee I'd rather have a g1 inspired one first it takes more priority. but if they made one I'm sure i could manage.

    I think ole Demolishor has a better shot of being made than Armada Starscream at this point. Aside from the fact that he could easily be retrofitted into the G1 Universe. He did recently appear in the WFC game, albeit as a minor character.

    Also, I have no problem with Arcee having an Earth mode, as long as it looks nice and the robot mode doesn't suffer for it. Also, Arcee ALWAYS had an Earth mode, it was just futuristic. It was supposed to be a car made on Earth, but what the animators back in '86 thought our cars would look like in the then far flung future of 2005.

    I totally agree with this perspective.

    And Transformers that turn into recognizable things are almost always more fun than Transformers than turn into made-up things.

    I'm not sure what the alt mode will look like, but I'm thinking her color will be close to what it was in the Rodimus/Cylonus comic.

    Not to be a pessimist, but something this atrocious wouldn't surprise me. History has proven that this will more likely go wrong than right. So many canceled figures, inappropriate repaints, etc. I'm not going to let myself look forward to this until the figure is at home in my hands.

    Hoping for Classics Arcee!!! I like the idea that someone mentioned about the convertable car. Im actually performing a traditional raindance for the gods in hopes for dlx classic style Arcee!

    WOW Warpath! Could it be? A dlx Classics Warparth!? Ive wanted one ever since seeing a radicon turn Cross Over Hulk tank into Warpath! Im really excited about the idea. Hoping...

    (Dammit Generations/RtS is a great f88kin line!)

    Thanks Hasbro!!!

    It'll be a exact G1 Arcee figure, but they'll use the wrong shade of pink and ruin it for everybody.
