I dont know what your situation was like at the time, but Starscream was released in the US fairly recently. I for one would not buy another because its the new mold. Hasbro is getting much better sell through from Toysrus and they are probably not loosing any money, because of the smaller distribution capacity of Toysrus. I hope you get my point......
I am looking forward to a different character, I think Hasbro will be smart enough to not make as much of the mold as they did TC and I believe it will be a success. I will certainly pick one up. As for the MP Autobot cars, well it sucks they are not getting a US release but we can always import!
yar...we had the mp3 mold from 2006, but I adore the new mp11 mold, myself. I'm assuming that since Hasbro took until 2008 to release the mp3 Starscream mold from 2006, they're just never going to release the mp11 upgrade. *shrug* At least maybe not for another couple years. lol.
Enjoy Acid Storm though! He's a nice lookin color scheme...just not what I want for my new collection! =)
As for the cars...I can't understand how licensing isn't an issue for Takara, but IS for Hasbro. *shrug*
But then, what do I know!
