It's been some time since my previous SCF post - the last SCF post was in May this year, a good 5 months ago.
Something posted by a good buddy, Arkvander, finally made me get off my behind to post more about SCFs - here, Arkvander talks about 2 of his custom SCF figures and also photographs them with the chase alloy coated Convoy, which is the subject of this post. Some coincidence?
Previously, I have talked about the chase figures for ACT 1, ACT 2, ACT 3 and ACT 4.
So far, except perhaps for the ACT 4 chase figures, each ACTs' chase figures have been highly desirable, special and has an undeniable place in Transformers lore, mythos and history.
For ACT 5 of the Takara's SCF line, the 2 chase figures are:
- Alloy coated Convoy with Matrix; and
- Ghost of Starscream
- Alloy coated Convoy with Matrix -
To be honest, this is one of my favourite SCF chase figures. The colour scheme may seem blend, but it just works. Matte silver with a blue crystal Matrix half opened works so well for this figure.
The Matrix looks stunningly beautiful.
SCF and cartoon renditions
- Ghost of Starscream -
Since G1, with almost every line of Transformers that has Starscream also has the 'ghost of Starscream' in some way, shape or form. Mostly, the ghost version of Starscream will be some sort of exclusive, and in the case of the SCF figures, a chase figure.
E like transparent toys - so this figure immediately became hers when I got it.
Ghost of Starscream in the G1 cartoon.
This figure, like the alloy coated Convoy is done very well. It is very pretty. I have no idea how Takara did the arms for example, where part of it is clear transparent and another part, which is molded as one piece, is transparent blue.

I think Octane is half transformed mode, is scarier than ghost Starscream.
Ghost of Starscream with reformatting Megatron... quite appropriate, I thought.
