Starscream may be getting some additional love this year with two releases.
- Leader class (Reusing Jetfire / Thundercracker mold)
- MP TRU exclusive.
We have some new rumors coming around the net from Seibertron, Allspark, and TFW2005. Entries for Starscream and even further rumored Thundercracker MP’s! We can only cross our fingers as the last time these seekers were in store they were Walmart Exclusives 5 years ago.
Currently we know that we are getting a re-use of the Jetfire mold (Thundercracker!) which could be easily re-colored to be Starscream. Additionally some have said they have seen some new listings in TRU’s systems for Starscream that may lead to a MP release.
The news broke accidentally by TRU Australia – Instead of Transformers Armada Megatron description we get Starscream:
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.
The war between Autobot and Decepticon rages on, and with Starscream in the fight, the action gets more intense all the time! This awesome Starscream figure is a massive force for evil in robot mode with a blaster on each arm and an appetite for destruction. But when it’s time for a screaming air assault, he converts to jet mode! Get ready for a whole new generation of Transformers mayhem with this incredible Starscream figure!

It would be a big year for Starscream getting a leader edition AND a re-release of his MP mold. I know I would be extremely happy especially if the MP is not the Ghost version…
Product code for MP Starscream:

To complete this year, it would be great to see MP Thundercracker also released to go with his Combiner Wars Leader class.
