I'm kicking myself for not jumping on that MP-11S when the price was right.

While I can see where you're coming from with this, the Takara one is at least closer to the deco of the original inspiration for the e-HOBBY G1 Sunstorm toy:





...Which now has me curious about why e-HOBBY decided to go with such an orange shade for their G1 Sunstorm toy instead of gold. :-?

That's definitely debatable. I think Sunstorm has a pretty firm precedent as an orangish and white Transformer toy between all of his toy and fictional appearances. Yellow Sunstorm is fairly new. While I would rather the BotCon "Sunstorm" be a more yellowish color with white instead of black, the shade of the BotCon figure is probably closer to his cartoon appearance above, but with the black, it doesn't make for a good Sunstorm either.

Hmm, yeah, looking at the comparison pics in the gallery, I agree that the BotCon figure got the shade of gold right (didn't realize how banana the Takara MP was compared to the BotCon figure). Though, the Takara MP did at least get the color layout closer to that of both the cartoon model and the e-HOBBY toy. It mostly just needed its fading dark-to-light yellow to be all gold instead. :)

Still, I do gotta wonder if there's a story behind the e-HOBBY G1 figure being so citrus orange instead of cheddar gold, unless someone at e-HOBBY just thought the animation model was that dark. *shrugs*

I always just compared it to the differences in the gray used for Starscream as a toy versus how he looked in the show.

Is there a translation for Silverstreak's bio? I'm interested if his name means he's a different dude.

I know that someone looked it over and figured out that it's just a version of regular Bluestreak instead of a new guy. Talking about how he talks a lot and other such Bluestreak-y things.

F U Hasbro

first u charge ppl 60 bucks for leader class figures that are way smaller and cheaply made then the prev leader class figures.

then u re-release grimlock and charge 100 for him!

now u release prowl for 100 and a f'ing brown headed sunstorm! for 100 as well.....

gimme a break! this is why 3rd parties are kicking your asses!

While I understand your frustrations, the prices u listed are incorrect. Leader Class figures are 45, MP prowl was 70 and MP sunstorm was 80. Not ideal but definitely cheaper than the prices u mentioned.

theres reasons for the route they took with the movie figures this time around:



grimlock, you shoulda bought him the first time around. or bought the takara one which would have been more expensive, THEN would have had to be imported. i bought the first TRU grimlock and im pretty sure i paid around $100 for him (but keep in mind im in canada).

prowl isnt $100. isnt he like 70 or 80? more expensive sure than takaras (and thats only pending on where you got him) but outrageous? i dont think so. ill concede that he shoulda come with the launchers though.

sunstorm i have no words for, other than he's selling, better than acid storm which was far better in my opinion. i thought takaras sunstorm was amazing but people hated that one too. so whadya gonna do?

sorry to everyone out there... just getting bogged down with all the negativity lately... :-(

my bad forgot to mention i live in canada, the prices im quoting are directly from toys r us.....prowl might be 89.99 or 99.99 actually

leader class figures here in canada are 59.99

and i did get grimlock for 69 when he first came out. I feel sorry for all the ppl that are paying 100 for him here in canada.

Hasbro is ripping off fans and collectors bottom line.

Why Hasbro? Why the hell did you paint the copyright info in black inside the left foot, which is white? Talk about sticking out like a sore thumb!

Forget this guy anyway. If I really wanted Prowl, I'd just go for the Takara version. I am very disappointed that Hasbro is yet again cheapening things I like.

And on that note ... you found the essentially sole difference between the Hasbro and Takara toys. I didn't even notice that but it's right there in the pictures.

I know why hasbro is giving us Prowl but
why are getting Sumstorm instead of a Skywarp?
I like sunstorm and everything,
but I would liked to get a MP-11 mold of Skywarp.
......So I guess we are going to get all of the Rainmakers
Before Skywarp. :-(

Exactly. I don't know what the deal is, but American toy companies have been trying this for a few years now. They get called out on it practically every time as well. DST's Star Trek ships are a prime example. Everything looks great until you find that crap. Black letters and numbers right in the middle of an area that is supposed to be all white, and visible from the front of the toy. Not acceptable in my opinion. I'll grab the Takara if I really want it.

Jesus Christ, Hasbro. How can you justify that enormous box for MP Prowl? That's absurd.

im not so sure about that... hastak has a tendency to tease us with a trio, and only give us two. im sure everyone remembers what happened with the classics seekers. im banking on takara giving us skywarp and thundercracker (MP11 mold) sometime soon simply because the MP line has been very autobot centric lately. and adding two decepticons like that would be effortless.

i believe someone already stated it, but its because they were worried about theft. i bet the takara MP car boxes could easily fit under a sweater....

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.
