Ready to get those rumour engines revving again? Site owner Seibertron is currently in Indianapolis, visiting the Children's Museum exhibition on our favourite transforming robots - Transformers: Robots in Disguise. We will have further information from the show at a later stage, but in the meantime, to stoke the flames of Starscream speculation - after a Masterpiece rumour, a new Generations Leader - how about a look at a prototype for a potential upcoming Voyager figure of the current leader of Cybertron? Check out the images below, showing the body we've seen on the IDW comics covers and in fact, even a similar pose...

UPDATE: Further speculation seems to link this figure to an upscaled version of the Legends class Generations Starscream toy. Compare the latter's images to the ones of the prototype posted below, now with better photography from Seibertron himself!

Ohhh, me likes it! I hope the wings are mistransformed because it look somewhat weird. Nevertheless, as a Screamers fan, I WILL get that voyager Starscream for my collection. Especially if it's a brand new mold.

:x

Kinda fugly. Should have made it look more like the classics mold. That mold will never be topped.

I can handle my MP-11 molds and move them about, flip them around upside down, shake them, whatever, and the chest stays in place. I've got Hasbro's Thundercracker, Acid Storm, and Sunstorm. None in my collection have this chest problem you speak of.

Agreed. Those loose comments have me scratching my head as well. I don't think the plane mode was compromised on MP-11 either.

It's like saying MP-1 is better than MP-10. It's nuts. The newer molds are better engineered and far more G1 accurate, simple reality.


My MP-11 dosent tab in bot mode, chest panels move when I move the arms and if I pick him up by the torso the whole assembly slides upwards. Its an annoyance but I still love this guy.

This is Combiner Wars we're talking about, so it'll be released as Skywarp first ;)

Holy cow! Hasbro had to have known what they were doing when they let the museum put this in their collection!

As long as he's mis-transformed, this will be an automatic buy for me. I'm bummed if this means he won't be released using the Leader Thundercracker remold (not soon, anyways), but I do like the Voyager-class size.

He needs poseable fingers.

Whatever it is, I want the whole Seeker affair. Classic Seekers, Coneheads, Rainmakers, all of them. I would buy up every friggin' one.

Guys, just judging by what I'm looking at, and based on it's construction. I think these might be 2015 RID toys.
Wheres the combiner peg?

I really, really like the Classic Seeker mould, but I gotta admit it's way too small next to Hegemon and the Autobots. I like this. It actually seems just about right. The right size with the right amount of G1 influence. And the Classics Seekers may not look totally stupid next to him.

I just might be down for seven of these (the main six + Sunstorm). But I'm not going crazy with making another Seeker army.

If the Seeekers are getting an upgrade in size I may need a new Voyager Soundwave (I've stuck with Music Label so far; it looks good next to Classics SS) ...

Why not Generations 2016? Standing next to Brainstorm on that display gives me the sense of a return to pre/post CW stuff. :-?

FOC Soundwave is used in the comic books. Easily my favorite Generations mold.

Don't know. Just a hunch. character design looks more like the new RID stuff. He looks very simple. His feet are static.

I don't think we've heard of Starscream showing up in RID, though.
We know Jazz and Drift will, but I think that's about it. :-?

No, this looks way too close to his comic book counterpart for it to be from the RID toyline.

Are you sure we are talking Combiner Wars here? As in that they actually combine with other figures? I've looked at that Starscream closely, and I see no possible ports anywhere. In fact, I dont see any knee joints, the legs are one solid piece. This leads me to believe that it's an upsized simplified figure, among the likes of Beast Hunters Deluxe Twinstrike and Windrazor. As for "Prowl": Same story, it's a retool of Beast Hunters Simplified Deluxe Smokscreen.

Sorry guys...

NO! I refuse to accept your logic!

It's why I'm marking all of these as rumours. :D

The engineering on this makes it look like a CW deluxe. Protos are sometimes oversized perhaps? Could also be an incomplete/canned idea. Hooray for speculation?
