    I do notice some merchants auto block their listings due to oversea shipping restriction, even though my shipping address(shipper) is in China. No idea how they find out I don't reside in CN though.

    But he's so absolutely ridiculous that it's fun to watch.

    Taobao has it for 228 RMB, which is roughly 32 USD. You'd have to lump it with much heavier items to make shipping less expensive, otherwise at least for me I have to use DHL/Fedex which ends up costing more than getting from Showz/TFS.

    So yeah I'd want for that 4th party to KO this fig so I don't have to spend 35 USD+ for a toy that I'm buying simply because I don't have a decent G1 Starscream yet.

    Lucifer of Cagliari was a 4th-century bishop on the island of Sardinia. He is remembered today chiefly for his bitter hatred of adherents to the Arian heresy (roughly, that Jesus as the Son of God was not eternal, like his father, but had been conceived at a particular time), including the Roman Emperor Constantius.
    Lucifer was exiled until a new emperor took power, after which he was still rebuked by the pope for his treatment of fellow Christians. "Luciferianism" now refers to the heresy of mercilessly opposing other heresies.

    So you see, Father Lucifer is the perfect namesake for Starscream, who fought against a great evil within his faction(Megatron), but did so in an intolerable way. It's heartening to see Newage looking to underused sources (like early Church history) for names.

    Yeah but you have not factored in when you buy him he'll make all the other toys look bad then you'll have to replace them with other legends figures.

    I am honestly intrigued by this statement. Very few TF fans I've met in my various travels have ever professed to be particularly religious. Most of us are downright heathens. Not trying to open you up to additional criticism, really, but that's the first time I've ever seen that statement.

    Yet, @ShowZStore have this under the description for H13 (regular):

    "An amazing mold for such a small size as the Legends scale. Fairly G1 accurate, with a nice amount of articulation, firing laser effects, and with some extra bonus like a G1 Megatron gun and his coronation crown and cape."

    Kind of disappointing that it doesn't come with the normal version like some of the promo shots are showing, as I have no interest in a clear version.

    I'll get the clear version if it's purplish, so that I have a teleporting Skywarp. I'll sell you the costume for miss priss.

    Neat. Now do a barebones version without the over the top stand and die cast parts and sell it for an actual legends price rather than this getting way too close to MP price. I started my legends collection specifically because they were affordable. I was willing to make exceptions for Optimus and Megatron but I don't want to pay $40+ for every character coming out in the future.

    Don't get me wrong: I like the accessories. But not enough to get me to spend $40 for a legends figure. And there's no way I'd buy enough seekers to form the whole space bridge even if they were only $20, let alone $40.

    Yup, the one accessory I would care about and they want you to buy a whole second figure to get it. Which would be ok if the cape had anything to do with the clear version of Starscream but, since it doesn't, this is being used as an incentive to get us to buy another figure we don't necessarily need/want (I mean if you happen to want the clear version then great but for everybody else, we just don't get the iconic cape/crown accessory).

    Yeah that is a bit crap. Could have gave you one piece of the coronation with each of 1st trio or something.

    I have no desire to own the clear. Or deal with likely hood of its breaking. I don't imagine many peaople want the clear that much either so it looks like it is going to be a speciality item. They also advertised it kind of as having the coronation gear in the product shots, false advertising.

    Btw i dont really care much for the coronation gear beyond putting him next mft galvatron etc. just dont think it quite right the way they set it up...

    Also not sure i want to pay plus 35 for starscream hearing this.

    I had DX9 Soundwave and Iron Factory Bruticus.

    Now I’ve got NA Megatron, MFT Shockwave, NA insecticons, and now I’ve pre-ordered these guys.

    What happened? I don’t collect Decepticons. This wasn’t supposed to happen. I said I’d only get Bumblebee. Now they’re everywhere!

    I started with Iron Factory's City Commander. Thought it was a cool little figure for my desk, thought nothing more of it. Then at TFCon I got the DX9 Doombringers and Hulkie. Next thing I know I was all-in on Thunder Manus(SO cool) and then War Giant. By then I was hooked. These sorts of thnigs have a way of happening; that's why we call it "plastic crack" around here, lol.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. We haven't seen a picture of the clear version though?
