(same pics in all those links, they're just mirrored).

It appears he is even LARGER than Armada/Energon Unicron!

I'll believe it when I see a legit size comparison. Something doesn't seem to be right in the pic with the sword on his arm, but I can't put my finger on it ...

MP-03? I mean, MP-02 was based on DW Magnus... why not TWW Starscream?

Oversized proto? Knockoff? Takara lucky draw item?

Not entirely convinced about size, TBH.

I so want that if it is bigger than Unicron. Just because that's friggin' crazy. They could do a whole underbase thing with him.

Hmmm another $100 AUS to shovel out ...

Still, I wouldn't think thats its going to be mass sold thing, well not in the states anyway. I'm guessing it might be GF only. Also, can anyone get a pit of GF Starscream? I want to compare ... been trying to find a picture ouf of the box that isn't in the catalogue scan's for a while now ...

There's only one problem... Takara has good security. Test shots almost always leak from Hasbro's factories.

That's what I figured. Of course, I've been decreasing my spending lately, so I probably won't have any problem getting it costwise.

Nah, MP-02 was based on the quick cash-saving method of doubling the size of a line by repainting another toy...

If that thing is supposed to be bigger than Unicron the detail is kinda dissapointing. So I guess I won't be holding my breath or anything.

Only if there's a button to make him sing "We are the Champions." How much would that rock?

Doug Dlin points to a post midway down this page:

http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showth...0&page=5&pp=15

...that notes mould changes between this and GF Starscream.

Summary: new vents, added blaster, shorter cockpit, detailing changes.

... interesting statement, considering that you've only seen scaleless images of the item.

That's a conclusion based on what, exactly?

The sole fact this toy is reported huge,and if the scale will stay as it is, this will be bigger than Fort max.

This is none other than Galaxy Force Starscream. Which is based on Don Figueroa's War Within design featured in the Dreamwave comic.

BWTF has loads of pics and a review here:

http://www.bwtf.com/galaxyforce/starscream/

I don't care if they call it "Galaxy Force". That is obviously War Within Starscream.

I'm buying it just because it's a War Within design and it looks friggin' sweet. Maybe if we all throw our money at Don's design, they'll make more?

Did you read any of the thread?

It isn't the same toy—it has mould changes, and is apparently much larger.
