Seibertron Member Zeds, has found a rather impressive new version of the Transformers Movie Voyager Starscream Mold.

www.watch.impress.co.jp have released information reporting that people in Japan who buy the New Toshiba RD-A301 will get a bonus red Starscream figure, like the one below:


To read the original report, please click here.

Toshiba have issued an English Media Release has also been issued regarding the RD-A301, but no information about the Red Starscream figure is given. Instead it appears that a HD version of the Transformers Movie will be given to anyone who purchases the RD-301 outside of Japan.

Wow that is horrible, i mean the movie Starscream i passed ( it was ok) but the Thundercracker repaint/head remold i think is still the best one yet ( which i picked up) and the G1 Starscream isn't too bad but this is just fugly as hell. :?

...That's just undignified. This isn't a G2 color scheme, it's a color scheme they rejected for a G2 toy because it was too gaudy.

I'll say it because no one else has as yet. They should have just done Skywarp as the exclusive. DONE!

That is unless Skywarp is already planned for the Allspark Power line. Which would be better since most collectors would want him over this travesty of TFdom. I do hope so as that mould would look great in black and purple. Always loved Skywarp ;;)

Could jsut be the colors on my screen, but as mentioned before, that looks more pink than red to me. No thanks. For that price, double no thanks.

Posted by zemper on October 31st, 2007 @ 6:13pm CDT
the things these people do to promote their products. :P

anyways, give it 2-4 years from now and that technology will surely decrease in cost. can't see the logic of trying to include a mediocre TF figure repaint just to sell off an overly expensive device that's good for only a few years.

now, if they packed a metallic gold MP-01 there, things might look a little brighter... :grin:

You have to buy soime expensive tivo-ish thoing in Japan to get this thing. I frankly think that it's really a blessing in disguise that this is so ugly. If it was something people really wanted, there would be torches and pitchforks tonight.

It appears to be about $865 US. Not something that could be justified to shell the money out for.
Re: New Transformers Movie Red Starscream Variant (433861)
Posted by Bouncy X on October 31st, 2007 @ 7:34pm CDT
865$ simply because its a different color? wow...thats just unbelievably retarded..lol

i'll never understand the whole "sell the same toy in different colors" thing....of course people buy it so thats why they keep doing this but yeah.

the G1 repaint sorta made sense but then, if i wanna see starscream painted in his G1 colors, i'll just go get a toy in the G1 design.

but i'm not a huge collector or anything so that probably explains my non understanding of these sorta things..lol

They should have panted him Skywarp colors. That would make sense. Red / ping? No thank you.

Maybe this means a Skywarp is planned sometime in the future, which is why they could not do what would seem to be a logical repaint.

He's proud of it because they told him it was the remote control for the HD-DVD player.

He's probably unsure if his new pink remote uses IR or the thing flies across the room, transforms to bot mode to hit pause, transforms back to a jet, and then flies back to your hand. Hell, if something of mine did that, I'd be proud too no matter how feminine it looked.

He looks like cherry licorice.

Now if he really is cherry licorice...

Speaking of which, don't they have candy resembling Transformers aside from energon candies?

It'd be sweet to bite their heads off...

Ummm...wow...that's gawd-awful-ugly.
However, I'm going to be purchasing a Toshiba XA2 in the next week or so. I'll have to look and see who is promoting the free DVD with purchase. Hey, saves me $27 bucks.
Anyone with more info on the promotion post it here. I'd greatly appreciate more info. If I find any more info I'll post it here as well. Thanks.

"I feel pretty,
Oh So pretty,
Oh so pretty and witty, and Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!"

Seriously, thats the song that popped into my head when I saw this. I can excuse a LOT of excesses from Hasbrow/Takara (as is shown by my ownership of 90% of the Universe line) But this this is really too absurd to be believe....if it were actually Red, as the article name seems to imply, it would be very cool indeed(Phoenix Starscream anyone?)...but this shade of pink is truly horrendous beyond even the worse of G2. It really seems like they didn't care....

Is there Any reason given for why this travesty is being produced?

Seriously.

This thing is attached to something ungodly expensive. It's better off being something nobody wants. Be glad it's hideous.

Maybe we'll get a movie Skywarp as some variety of store exclusive later on once all the Thundercrackers and G1-redeco Starscreams are off the shelves.

oh come on people!!!!!!! Stop critisizing this toy Just because of its color. It is not pink it is gold, which is a true boy and Decepticon color(notice the color of most decepticon eyes), and i must say gold is a good color. Its the color of victory, the color of success, the color of a 1st place trophy, which is rewarded only to those who succeed and get noticed because of their great ideas(like all of the people that work with hasbro and seibertron. So stop making Starscream look like such a dork by writing down bad things about him.(hasbro and seibertron, you rock!)

Please, the majority of that figure is fuschia, red, pink or whatever the heck you want to call it. Plus, a majority of people want Skywarp.. maybe Thrust.. and heck... even Dirge and Ramjet would be fine.

But a Pink Starscream? Sure, i like the figure and paint app too, but it's way too expensive.
