Cybertron Supreme Starscream:
As far as I know, this figure was never released in Japan under the Galaxy Force name. At least not as the supreme size. Is this true? It was proposed I believe, and was maybe going to be released as the USA Edition or something, but it never happened right?
I realize GD-03 was the voyager starscream that we never got, but in turn did Japan ever get a Supremem Starscream? If they did, can someone provide pics?
Please say yes...
The full answer: yes, Supreme Starscream was released in Japan, but not under Galaxy Force name. Rather, he was a "USA Edition" which means the toy was in American packaging. He did get a name change: "Super Starscream" instead of "Supreme". He was exclusive to Toys 'R Us, one of the stores that regularly carries USA Edition toys alongside e-Hobby and Toy's Dream Project.
And as shown, we did get the smaller Starscream mold, as a Toys 'R Us exclusive, albeit repainted. Somehow Toys 'R Us, being an international chain, manages to negotiate with both TakaraTomy and Hasbro about exclusive items. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have:
- Powerlinx Optimus Prime / SC-13 SL Grand Convoy
- the smaller E-Megatron / SD-07 Galvatron
- the Beast Wars Reborn remolds of Ultra Primal and Megatron
- the smaller Voyager Starscream mold
They all would have been Japan-only items.
Top 5 Priorities:
1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) RiD Landfill (regular, not the yellow)
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)
Also looking for any clear Arms Microns, like Shadow (Gora & R.A.), Hellflame and Shining (O.P. and R.A.).Preparing to move to the US!
