    Received a mailer from the owner of the shop, Robo robo (who originally disclosed the news) stating that this was actually a prank done by his japanese friend.

    So the truth is out! There is NO MP Ghost Starscream.

    Hahaha, fooled the whole Transformers internet community. Well-played, I guess :lol 
    Although a Masterpiece made out of brittle translucent plastic was already a bit suspicious, I guess.

    Not to get you guys upset but, I told you guys. Some of you are quick to believe on anything you want to hear. Takara is good in keeping us informed on their releases. There was no solid proof to this. Just some email from a local hobby shop with no pics.

    It worked so well as a prank because it's the silly, predictable sort of that Takara could believably do. :D

    I'm not sure how many people really believed it to begin with. I was really skeptical based on the tiny bit of "proof" that it was true. Still, the idea of it is interesting and I'd love to see what such a figure would look like.

    I guess we can wait for iGear to make one?

    TBH, as any info is always skeptical at best without any concrete source, you'd have to admit, this would've fallen in Takara/Tomy's M.O. So it really was to easy for people to fall for.

    ACTOYS yes, not from a email from a local shop with a few lines in the email. If the email was from Robeotkingdom, I would have been inclined to believe it was true, but still skeptical.

    If a bum in a street told me Takara was making an MP Ghost Starscream, I would have thought "eh, there's a chance". So, even without proof, it seemed reasonably likely.

    None since the option to pre-order never happened. It was just a pre-listing.
