    TRU Starscream is out now!!!

    I didn't put this in the Just Found section because it's not a Star Wars toy.

    The new Toy's R Us Commemorative Series II Starscream is out now. I have yet to see it at TRU but it is poping up on ebay. Here's a pic I found:

    Currently Optimus Prime, and Ultra Magnus can be bought at TRU. (Good luck finding Prime though.) Rodimus Major (AKA Hot Rod) shipped with them, but I haven't seen him for several months. Magnus is pretty easy to find.

    Power Master Optimus Prime w/ Apex Armor will start to show up pretty soon as well.

    Jazz, Silverstreak (AKA Bluestreak..) and I think Thundercracker will show up later in the year.

    I guess I should posted a topic like this when I saw Starscream last week...

    BTW, its rumored that Silverstreak will be in Bluestreaks anime colors. So while Bluestreak has always been silver, Silver streak may be blue.. weird..

    Edit: Ok ignore that! Bluestreak's anime color wasn't blue! This is what anime bluestreak looks like.

    I have heard that TRU will be getting solid cases of regular Prime soon, so it won't be as hard to find this fig as it has been so far.

    I hate to say it, but this TRU Starscream looks really dull in that packaging for some reason. I hadn't been planning on buying this fig anyway, but now I'm solid on that decision.

    I want Soundwave w/ cassettes!!!

    Everyone wants Soundwave with the cassettes.

    If Hasbro is even slightly interested in making money with these re-issues then they will green light this baby.

    As for the solid cases of Prime, I believe they may have started shipping already. I stopped by TRU about 2 weeks after T-giving and they had about a dozen Primes' and NO Ultra Magnus (Cincinnati, OH). Solid cases of Optimus Prime...good call Hasbro!

    I still can't believe Hasbro went with Apex Armor Optimus before Soundwave. What were they thinking? Maybe it's a cost cutting technique, since they were already cranking out Diesel molds (Prime and Magnus being the same mold) they figured...why not keep 'em rollin'.

    I will be buying ALL of the TRU re-issues. It's the only thing besides Movie Maniacs and Star Wars I collect.
    May the force be with you.

    The Soundwave mold is damaged, last time I heard. It's going to cost some cash to fix it, and Takara may never end up doing so.

    That would be tragedy if true and a serious mistake on Takara's part if they don't deal with it. If nothing else, they could pull molds from the original toys and simply tighten up these new molds.
