It's the figure all you Exclusive maniacs, Gentei maniacs, and Takara maniacs have been waiting for! It's Gentai Ghost Starscream! Redrom over at ACToys.net was kind enough to open up the figure and take a handful of pictures of it. We get some comparisons in box and out of box, but mostly just zoom-ins of Ghost Starscream in alternate mode. You can check out the picture below. Be wary of the last one, it may break you.

I object your honor! This is just another sleazy way to make me skip this month rent and spend it all out on this guy... Too bad they didn't add a photo of him in robotmode though.
Wonder if they ever will bring out a golden repaint or even black & grey repaint?

That is a cool looking figure. I can't justify the kind of money they are asking for another version of a figure I already have.

Very cool to see the toy in and out of the packaging!

This and Electro Disruptor Ligier are the only two clear version figures that make sense on a conceptual level to me so that gives these figures bonus points in my book.

I'm curious...I've read in the past that clear plastics are more brittle. Does anyone know if modern plastic technology has nullified that weakness?

OK, I seriously do not intend to be condescending, but I am having trouble understanding the appeal of these transparent versions. Don't get me wrong, I have amassed a crap ton of transformers myself and am addicted to this plastic crack.

I can sorta see the appeal with these two figures as Mirage could turn invisible and Starscream was a ghost, but clear Optimus/Convoy? What is the appeal there?

IMO they just look cool...I don't find them worth the price, however. But if they were near retail prices, I'd be all over them.

I think a large part of the appeal is the rarity of transparent plastic figures. They're usually limited release figures so the whole "only so many of these are made" appeal is certainly hefty for collectors who must have every version of particular characters.

I personally think clear figures are neat but not neat enough to make them worth their high pricing. Now if a clear figure had internal mechanisms to show off like the inner frames of Master Grade and Perfect Grade Gundam model kits, then I can really see some value in the figure to have in my collection aside from the rarity factor.

Like I said earlier, Ghost Starscream and ED Ligier work for me due to the reasoning behind the fiction of the characters but all the other clear version figures just seem to be straight up ploys for inflating prices.
