A pair of auctions recently popped up on ebay for clear test-shot versions of Transformers Generations FOC Deluxe Starscream and Voyager Soundwave. Both auctions, which were offered by seller 366offer, have already ended, but they included some nice images of the rare prototypes. Check out the images mirrored below.

These do look cool but other sites have already debunked these as being "lunchtime specials" and not "rare prototypes". The person that won the auction can cancel his bid because of a fraudulent listing. Far to many scammers listing items as prototypes that are clearly not.

Bah, call them what ya want, I still want tht perfect clear Starscream... Well, depending on the price, of course. I'd pay up to 50$ for it.
In reality, I think I'll have to settle with Million Publishing 2013 once it go on sale at BBTS.

Even if they're Lunch Time Specials, they're damn cool and pretty much one of a kind.

As little use as I would have for any of these, that clear Lazerbeak calls to me. Pretty neat.

Why would you make clear prototypes? That's just silly.

Also, what is a "lunchtime special"?

Lunchtime specials are basically toys that don't exist really, sometimes employees like to play about with the molds when they're not working, and create stuff like this, toys cast in weird plastic colours for themselves, mostly clear. Sometimes they even put them in boxes and take them home. Since this mostly happens during their lunch brake, they're called lunchtime specials.
Well at least that's how it was explained to me.

Not really when you think of it.

A clear mold would be the easiest way to confirm that all the internal bits and pieces line up right.

This should be the Infiltration Starscream figure that we get with the Generations book xD

Not long ago, we posted a piece of news regarding some translucent prototypes of Generations Starscream and Soundwave. It seems there are more clear plastic toys out there somewhere, as Facebook page TF Upgrader has just uploaded images of two more: Generations Trailcutter and Dreadwing - check them out, mirrored below.

:grin:
These as ice sculptures! :lol:

There is something very attractive about the various crystal clear Transformers figures that we get to see (and sometimes own) but only as display pieces of course. ;)

Totally. Clear plastic... so these disintegrate in a couple of years? :lol:

These look more like stealth mode, and it's a wonder Hasbro doesn't consider releasing an "ice sculpture" line or "stealth mode" Mirage. :-?

PREDATOR-FORMER!!! :DANCE:

Hardly :lol: Clear plastic does not disintegrate, it simply snaps under constant pressure like in major joints. No GPS-like antics here.
