I think there are 13 now! I'll probably do that when Skywarp comes out or if all 3 of the Coneheads are released. Last time I did the group shot was when there were 9 available when MP-11 Starscream came out.

And wasn't there something different about Takara's USA Edition of MP-03 Starscream? I never got that one.

I actually think we were both wrong and there are 11:

1. MP-3 Starscream
2. MP-3G Ghost Starscream
3. MP-6 Skywarp
4. MP-7 Thundercracker
5. MP-11 Starscream
6. MP-11S Sunstorm
7. Hasbro Starscream
8. Hasbro Skywarp
9. Hasbro Thundercracker
10. Hasbro Acid Storm
11. Hasbro Sunstorm

Did I miss anything?

That would be news to me. I think it was the same deal as MP-11A Acid Storm - same toy, slightly different box?

Nope you are correct. I miscounted the 7 in the picture I posted as 9. Because, well, counting to 7 is hard. :oops:

Yes.

According to TFWiki, it had the following changes:
the original mold for the tail fins was used, an extra Decepticon symbol was added to Starscream's nosecone (which was present on his original toy, but not his animation model), and his black "scorch mark" paint operations were dialed back, and those that remained were switched to a lighter gray.

I have a hard time counting them accurately because there are 5 unofficial ones on my shelf that threw me off, plus I never got MP-3G, MP-7, MP-11S, and haven't seen the new Hasbro Sunstorm yet.

Ryan, amazing Galleries, thanks for the great pics. I am missing three of the seekers, its an amazing mold, I cannot wait to pick up the Hasbro Sunstorm even though I thing the Takara version looks much better.

your MP03 thundercracker and skywarp... are there reprolabel stripes on the wings? mine have been boxed away for some time but i recall them being flat black and blue.

you know what im jonesing for? more G2 repaints. they set the precedence with 12G2 sideswipe, and after seeing the upcoming G2 starscream from TFCC, id love him in MP form.

Both Takara Skywarp and Thundercracker (and the original Takara Starscream) came with sticker sheets that included the wing stripes for each.

All Generations figures, at least the Deluxes, have a port in te back of the hips. A regular Tamashii stand will do just fine. Those are used for high-end figures like S.H. Figuarts.


Is this what you are referring to?

That's the one. Some Figuarts figures come with their own versions, differing only in whats printed on it. That's all I can tell you, maybe somebody can fill in some of the details?


the voyagers have the port too. look on them.


Next question ... anyone know where I can those that is cheaper than the current prices on Amazon?


And in a review, I found out that the AoE toys aren't the only ones to have those holes: Gen. Sky-Byte has one too! Also, Figma stands make a decent substitute, just don't put any real weight on them.

Now I just need to find some of those stands at a decent price! Anyone have some suggestions?

I opened up my TRU Sunstorm today, and I have to say, I don't think the gallery pics do him justice (no offense, Ryan) especially in vehicle mode. The flame detailing is so nice, and the lighting doesn't quite capture the metallic sheen the flames have. Robot mode still goes to Takara, but my issue with TRU's head can be solved with a spare Thundercracker one.

Why does Sunstorm have Coronation Starscream's Coronation shoulder pads/cape/crown?

Cuz it was a full redeco of the MP-11 Starscream figure, accessories and all.

Only the Hasbro redecos of this mold (Thundercracker, Acid Storm, and Hasbro's Sunstorm), which all came out after Takara's Sunstorm, have omitted the coronation accessories.
