They have 927 OPs and 425 Starscreams. I'm guessing these won't sell out and will go on sale?

Let's see if TF source will lower their price to match, or let me cancel the pre-order, and subsequently strop using them forever....

I doubt TFsource will price match, they sourced their stock early from Asia, which is more costly for them hence their price. But you might as well try to cancel your preorder if you don't mind getting it at a later date.

What crap. And how convenient that theirs all arrived TODAY and they started shipping, probably knowing everyone would cancel their order. bad business.

I cannot pre-order anything (no credit card) but when it will come out, I WILL buy that Starscream.

Before that, it will be Metroplex, of course.

I think I shall get Bling Bling Prime. I got the original Supreme Starscream at a garage sale with crown for $5. Can't remember if he was missing anything else at the moment.

Same. I'm at least getting him, since my local Toys "R" Us were dicks and never even stocked the original release once. Had plenty of Thundercrackers (which I unfortunately had to miss out as well), but no Optimus Primes. :-x

I really like King Starscream here, but I already have the original Cybertron toy. Butchered, and crownless, but I already own it, so it's not quite a priority (THIS JUST IN: Mindmaster not making an upcoming Starscream toy a priority?! :shock: )

Could not care less about Starscream. Do want OP, but that's a little expensive. Guess I won't find it for any cheaper tho.

I won't comment on the Prime. He is a good toy, and for those not able to get the first release, there you go.

But Starscream?! Don't make me laugh. Oh, too late. :lol: That is so hideously overpriced it's pathetic. The original toy was pretty poor compared to others in the size class, and even more expensive now? I laugh once more.

update from TFsource.

They will not honor the lower price as most have suggested they sourced their stock early from overseas. Their response was that it was a mere coincidence that just hours after TRU and BBTS posted their pricing, a truck showed up with a bunch or primes for them to fill their pre-orders. What are the odds huh? "oh no, our competitors announced lower pricing, what do we do? Oh wait, is that a semi full of primes arriving early? Quick, let's process them"

I asked if TRU and BBTS did NOT post their price, would my order still have been processed, and they did not reply. I also asked them how many orders were cancelled before they were able to fill them and got no response, as who wouldn't for $50, just wait another month.

I still don't believe it. This prime better be the shi$$$ and show up in absolutely perfect packaging.

For those on the fence with the "Bling Bling Prime"... go for it. His colors are way better in person. I don't have MP10... and if you are in the same boat than join me in picking up this figure. I grabbed him yesterday in Long Island City at $119 after 15% discount and online price matching. Why buy him?

1. Trailer hitch is very secure and the pivot device is perfectly smooth.
2. Transformation is vastly improved, simply more elegant and intuitive.
3. Storage for the gun both in bot mode and in the trailer, as well as for the axe.
4. the poses I have gotten him in are limited mostly by the dip in the hips which doesn't appear to be that far due to the crotch piece molding… but this doesn't limit how heroic he can look. The posing is outstanding.
5. Matrix of Leadership is a gorgeous piece on it's own.
6. YOTH/Autobot symbol on the trailer back and on the shoulder of Prime looks great.
7. The red gems on the crotch piece. When I saw pictures and reviews I thought, "those should be yellow to really match Prime" but that wasn't true. A. that would clash with the Gold and B. the red simply looks badass. Emphasizes the bling look by making it look like he has gems embedded.
8. The darker red and blue of the figure helps to give prime a distinct look from MP Lambor and iGear Ironhide (weapons specialist).

Starscream is already warming the shelves at my local TRU in large numbers, and an Optimus has been sitting there for at least a week now.

I also spotted a couple of Starscreams at my TRU. $109.99 plus tax. :lol:

Maybe if it was $60 or so. Prime, on the other hand, I wouldn't mind getting, but I would keep him in truck mode. I have MP-01, and the robot mode is much better looking.

Also, if Supreme Starscream ever got T-cracker and Skywarp repaints, would you get them?

If Strascream ever get at 50% or 60% off, please let me know. I want it but it's not worth 200$ for me. I'd pay 100$ top, shipping included, without any customs fines.

So, if Starscream is around 50$ taxes included, I guess it would cost around 40/50$ of shipping. If it ever get at this price, please, some gentlemen middleman it to me. Please?

if anyone needs a middleman on either of these items let me know....they really arent hard to find at least not here but its sometimes different elsewhere

I picked up one of the year of the horse primes..meh I like so many others would have just like to have saw the 2012 MP10 come out again, I was lucky enough to get one but it was the only one I ever saw.

These year of the horse primes might make good bits for someone doing custom painting on optimus primes
