Whoever transformed that needs glasses and an instruction manual. Both the arms and the front bumper are mistransformed.

*ahem* WAAAAAANT!!!!!!! *AHEM*
Yet, sadly, I'll likely be too poor to afford it.

So... er... I guess I'm the only person who doesn't like it?

Not trying to start a fight or say anyone's wrong, but I really can't see the appeal of it. Looks... cheap, somehow.

You're not alone. I don't much like these clear variants myself, but I don't want to rain on the parade of the people who do.

I'd quite like to get a Ghost Starscream at some point. And a Classics Mirage cast in as much clear plastic as possible would kick ass, but other than that... meh. Hey ho, different strokes for different folks. As long as people who want one get one, it's all good.

Rain on my parade! If it’s your honest opinion feel free to post it!

I like this figure though, but I doubt I’ll be able to afford it so I’ll just imagine it doesn’t exists…

I wish I could do that, but he already sits in my head as a distinctly desired trinket...

I take it that the Botcon 07 Mirage ain't clear enough for you then? I'd have liked to have seen that figuge clear where he's clear blue and clear blue where he's solid blue, and a lighter shade of clear blue used, but it's probably the best we're going to get. Thundercracker and Skywarp are one thing, but I don't see much chance of a Henkei clear Leiger anytime soon.

3550 yen I believe, but that's only at a three day toy show in Japan. I'm expecting preorders on this to be at least $60 when they start to show up.

Well I have no need for this toy because I have the firdt one, not the Japenesse one. It must be more money too online.

Should taste like cherry, blueberry, and pineapple. I'll pass.

I like it, the fingerprint on the windshield just pushes it over the edge for me.

If it's within reason, I may get it.

LOL

Seriously though, I really want this guy. After getting the Club combiners, the ghost of Starscream statue, and my "Invisible" Mirage from 2 years ago I think I got a thing for clear transformers…

All I need is a preorder
