    I would need some history to verifiy that this is an internal takara item and not a KO run off with all the clear KOs we are seeing now.

    I have some clear and chrome items which were featured in JE Alvarez's rare toys presentation

    A friend of mine has a Starscream like this. It's the same colors as the regular G1 toy only clear. He says it's Starscream's Ghost, but he didn't tell me if it was the official name of the figure. Looks awesome though.

    There was indeed an official Starscream's Ghost, made as an e-Hobby exclusive a few years ago at the same time they started getting into reissues. I was still in college when it came out, couldn't afford it at the time and it's pricy now. I want one bad.

    Looks beautiful to me. However, this also highlights my biggest gripe with all these auctions from Singapore; why the fuck don't they combine shipping? I'd have bought a HELL of a lot of stuff from some of these people, except I refuse outright to pay separate shipping for every single thing I buy.

    Even if it isn't a KO it has questionable origins, and makes you wonder how long until the KO guys pump out a figure in this color way.

    These are from takara, lunchtime specials, He has had these for quite some time now. and this is his last one. I was gonna buy it from him directly a few months back but i cant afford that much.... I really dont think we will see these officially released. I wish they would release them....

    that clear colored prime is a an actual product coming from the takara factory. in other words its a lunchtime special. i believe only 5-10 were made? not sure but its super limited. I own one and it is a very beautiful toy. It is NOT a KO. by the way the mold is not from the encore series i believe its from the bookstyle.

    you really got to see the toy in person, it is high quality plastic and very clear like crystal. the toy is very fragile and light. lunchtime specials have a distinct crystal look to them unlike the clear KO's

    if you are a fan of old school prime I really recomend getting this. this is probably his last one. lunchtime specials are really rare kind of like lucky draws.

    naw man, all i am saying is that the toy is worth getting. this is probably his last one. if you got the funds to spend. spend it on that.

    if anybody is wondering about the seller i believe he is "tin tin happy" the only person that sells these lunchtime specials. when he sold me the prime he sent me personal pictures of it with the signature tin tin style writing note along with the prime. he is a very professional seller and gives you first class service so rest assure. He is obviously up there in takara like a supervisor or something. anybody know for sure? [email protected] knows? they seem pretty knowledgable.

    funny that he doesnt ship within his own country. afraid of getting caught by an internal takara rep?
    LOL

    Most of us WILL never have it, as there is only one of them.

    ??
    the seller is only accepting bidders with a feedback of 50 or more.
    LMFAO at the people that are gonna bid on it at the final seconds to get denied on ebay for having low feedback.

    Well, he probably did that for a reason. He wants to make sure the winning bidder will pay for the item because he doesnt want to re list the item giving the impression that he has another one for sale. He is a honest seller and doesnt want to look shady.

    some of the clear transformers are KO's and some are "lunchtime specials"
    that prime is a lunchtime special. a worker at the takara factory using the companys mold and materials to make the toy in limited quantities. i think somebody here said only 5 were made. this being his last one.
