An email supposedly sent out by Gerard of Robo robo, a popular hobby store in Singapore, announces a pre-order for a ghost/clear version of MP-03 Masterpiece Starscream. According to the email received by our own Seibertron.com member freaky777, the figure is slated for late June 2010 release and will cost approximately 10,000 yen, or around 138.00 Singapore dollars (about 98.00 USD). No official images of this figure have been released yet and this figure has not been confirmed by Takara. However, with the recent release of the Henkei Ghost Starscream, it is very possible that the toy maker has this release in the works.

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest on this story and for all the latest Transformers news!

Thanks for the heads up-price updated.

Can't wait to see a picture of this figure. Would be a nice way to close out this mold and my MP-03 collection.

That would be really interesting seeing a Masterpiece figure done in all clear plastic. It'll either look really good or really shit.

I don't know about this one. 1. Because the idea seems a little excessive, and 2. Because if it really is the MP-03 version, then it will be a teal and pink ghost Screamer instead of a gray and red one (MP-03 wasn't show-accurately colored, the Hasbro version and the USA Edition were).

There is no need for this, you can do it yourself on the cheap.

Simply pop the stand for your existing MP Starscream on the shelf but leave the figure off. There, saved yourself a bundle of cash.

Never really seen the point in these clear figures. Now, if he lit up with some well placed internal LEDs or something then I might be interested. A MP Starscream night light would be fun.

I'd take this figure at this reported price ANY day over MP "King" Grimlock for $250.

F'n brilliant! I'm gonna do that right now!! And then I'll make them myself and sell them for 10 bucks less than the new version and corner the market!

I'm not sure I culd justify a FIFTH purchase of this mold, although I like the concept. I'm already torn over whether to buy the Black Convoy or not and then this comes along.

Anyone know what a MIB M'piece GreenScream goes for?

Oh god I hope there's truth behind this. Hell, I'd pay someone $98 USD just to keep telling me that we're going to get an MP Ghost Starscream. I hope all kind'sa ways this is true.

Up for preorder at robotkingdom

So were they actually taking pre-orders on this or is it just their way of listing it, but not getting stuck with hundreds of pre-orders at a price they end up losing money on?

Despite many other sites said this is a fake, you will hear the official confirmation on January 2010.

I like that it's not too insanely priced for a clear fig. Now it's just a matter of where to order it... Could save $15 ordering from RobotKingdom, but then you have to pay at the time of order and go through who knows what if there's a problem with the fig. The savings for Black Convoy made it worthwhile...for basically the price of a deluxe, though...I may have to go back to BBTS.
