"Who dares disrupt my coronation!"

It has come. Armor upgrades created to turn the traitorous, power hungry Decepticon Starscream, Masterpiece Version, into Emperor Starscream from the original cartoon movie!

TFClub seems to create a piece that fans will be clamoring to get their hands on.



According to information the additional armor pieces are coming out in March.

View more images here including a set on Masterpiece Skywarp.

Is this more than just 'bad comedy'? You tell us and join the ongoing discussion here in the already existing thread in the Toys Forum!

I wish there's a Masterpiece Astrotrain to stand beside him.

So, this is the fourth custom MP accessory set, right? The first was the MP-01 Trailer (later overtaken by the MP-04 Convoy w/ Trailer), then the Ultra Magnus armor/trailer, after that was the Megatron gun parts, and now this. All in all, this is a very nice set. :D

This would be great! ...if only I could have gotten my hands on a MP Starscream at retail price

:sad:

There was no mass released MP-02 Ultra Magnus armor/trailer custom set. A few people might have made their own, but nothing was ever made to the same extent as the MP-01 trailer or MP-05 gun accessories.

I think this MP Starscream gear is pretty cool for novelty value, but I certainly won't be buying it since I would never display him like that. The recolored gear for MP Skywarp is just ridiculous.

I didn't know there was an upgrade to Skywarp. What's it like?

Looks interesting-my MP Starscream may have to have one.

all the more it gets me excited and anxious for the Takara-release of G1-style Masterpiece Starscream, the reason why i didn't get (though i could a lotta times) the Hasbro issue.

At price much lower than they'd likely charge, I'd happily have a set. I'd call it a terrific effort on the part of the fans and tip my hate. At any sort of price comparable to other upgrade sets, it's simply out of the question for three small pieces of molded plastic and one piece of fabric. It looks OK, but not as majestic as it might. The crown's nicely sculpted, the shoulder pads capture the detail from the movie nicely, and the cape look like an appropriate fit. On the other hand, the cape could benefit from a different fabric, the crown maybe is a little large, and the shoulder pads somehow look off in color to me. If this turns out inexpensive, I'll eat my critiques and sing the praises of the people who made this upgrade.

I wonder if the shoulder pads use the little notches in Screamer's shoulders?

Finally! Some common sense! I was wondering when this would happen. He looks fantastic with it. I'm so getting that set.

The one on Skywarp looks a little naff... with that little white cape. If it comes to a choice between the two and it doesn't get a better cape, I'll probably get the Starscream version for my Skywarp.

If the price is right, I may pick one up. I also wouldn't display him with it on for extended periods of time. If I could track down another Wal Mart Starscream for retail price, I might get another one to keep the gear on. I passed up the gun parts for MP-05 because I always keep him in bot mode. This on the other hand, would be nice to have.

Is this general release; or something that is exclusive and whatnot. When's botcon? is this relating to that? Otherwise I am all over this like a paper towel on a spill.

Anybody thinked how the kit would resemble the "after coronation" scene on a not-repainted SScream? :P

True. My Virus killer squeeqed every second. A Big "WARNING!!!" sign would be useful in the first post.

Hrmm.. what's next Beach Volleyball Starscream? :P

Nice looking add on kit, but I think I'll keep my Screamer the way he is.

DO WANT! I think I'd rather get an MP Skywarp first, though, to go along with my Starscream. I don't even know if I'd use the accessories, I leave Starscream in jet-mode on top of my TV.

I always thought Starscream looked a bit silly in that getup. I mean... a cape on a jet? I suppose he always did value pomp over practicality.

Glad lots of folk are happy about it.

'Ya know, when you think about it, its sort of funny that everybody is all excited over buying some extra garb based on a getup that showed up for a whole of forty-five seconds in a 1986 children's film before it and it's wearer were incinerated.

Granted, I want it too, and I don't even have a Masterpiece Starscream to wear it! :P

Thats cool. Only problem is i have yet to find that damn walmart only Starscream. I hate walmart exclusives.

I like it, if I see a set at botcon I will definatly pick one up. But for some reason I wish that the shoulder pads were bigger and the crown was a little bit smaller.

Either way it will look great on my MP Starscream

Hasbro should have included these gimmicks in the package. Just like Megatron with Krezeek and the mace.
