Million Publishing has revealed their next mail away exclusive, Infiltrator Starscream. The figure is a translucent version of the Transformers Generations Deluxe Fall of Cybertron Starscream mold, likely referring to his in game stealth mode. He comes armed to the teeth with his original weapon the Neutron Assault Rifle, plus Sideswipe's Pathblaster and Shockwave's Photon Burst Rifle. Check out the images mirrored below.

So in addition to his own, he gets Shockwave's and Sideswipe's guns as well. So much for infiltration :lol:

Honestly, all I want is the Path Blaster for Ultra Magnus to dual wield with his massive sword. >:oP

Wait, Shockwave's cannon is actually a Photon Burst Rifle? :shock:



CANNOT UNSEE! :BOOM:

Based on the translation, the designer of TF Go is probably reminiscing about the early influences from Godginrai all the way to the present design.

This one is of no interest to me thankfully.

Looks cool, will get it if the price is right. But if it's 10,000¥ or something no way.

The sheer irony of this figure's existence is that the Fall of Cybertron video game (as well as its WFC predecessor game) was never even released in Japan.

It might also be related to the 30th Anniversary Masterpiece Fans' Choice, in which Ginrai is one of the 11 possible choices.

So essentially it's a "Ghost of Starscream" kinda deal, but since Alinged Starscream hasn't died yet they just call it infiltrator.

Eh, more or less. It's more representative of his part of the Fall of Cybertron level, "Starscream's Betrayal", where he had cloaking as an ability.

Yea, but he had no colour while clocked.

They probably figured a clear-yet-colored toy would look less boring and more visually appealing than a solid clear and colorless toy.

Pretty much passing on this piece. I am restructuring my collection as we speak, and will not be adding any Destrons/Decepticons/Predacons to it this time. >:oP

"Not entirely true," says Bishounen Starscream. ;) Check out Naoto Tsushima's All Spark series, specifically "Another Episode (parts 1 and 2)" for the details on how and why they chose to have it added to this more modern G1 continuity. ;)

He's there because Super-God Masterforce has turned 25 last April and Ginrai, the character, turns 25 this month. Plus, from what I have read, Ginrai is still a highly influential character. So it sounds like instead of turning his figures into Encore sets, they are going to do an article on him.

Which annoys me.

As I am trying to keep my revamped collection under more strict guidelines. :lol:

I actually wouldn't mind seeing an MP God Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime. I missed out on MP10 (curse you, cruel combination of Toys "R" Us and scalpers! Curse you!), so an American release of an MP God Ginrai (little transforming Ginrai/Hi-Q buddy, trailer, and Supermode required, GTFO if omitted) as Powermaster Optimus Prime would satisfy me greatly.

Notice my use of the words "video game".

All Spark is a manga, not a video game. :roll:

Okay, let me repeat, this time being more honest: You are 100% wrong.

You stated that the games themselves were never released in Japan, yet Naoto Tsushima has shown evidence that you are wrong. Both in his works on All Spark and in his artwork.

Also, it does not help that you meant "domestic release" as the term import also relies that there are other means of having it be released in Japan. So with that said, feel free to have me correct you on everything you say while not taking your "fact finding" as seriously. ;)
