Courtesy of the CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook page we have nice clear, and probably official, packaging shots of the upcoming Transformers Platinum Year of the Horse Optimus Prime and Starscream. Optimus Prime is a redeco of the popular MP-10 mold, and Starscream is redeco of his Cybertron Ultimate Class figure.

Update: We also have an official image of the Starscream figure, which boast a more G1 inspired deco. Image courtesy Weibo user 小白哥乌拉诺斯.

No words to describe how much I love that Starscream right now. :x :x :x

Also, Starscream's altered Decepticon symbol uses the original Generation One design! :KREMZEEK:

Wanting that starscream to stand next to MP thundercracker. Anyone know what stores we can expect these in or are they order only?

We don't know, but we can expect to know more sometime around the first quarter of 2014, maybe at Toy Fair 2014. ;)

That's either a really bad photoshop or I've been had.

Is that official? And what's the source?

The watermark in the pic, but the pic itself was found on TFW. Scroll up and the same guy posted the packaging pics, different pics from the ones posted here.

Also, according to the (horribly) translated page, some of the users claim that both exclusives will be available soon for preorder on Hasbro Toy Shop.

FUGLY! They should just reissue the TRU MP10 Optimus Prime for those that didn't get one and don't want to pay 300 dollars to SCALPERS. This is garbage.

:evil: :HEADHURTS:

Hey, guy. Maybe you haven't been following, or you can't read, or maybe you're blind, which would be unfortunate, but THAT IS MP-10! It's MP-10 with new paint apps.

Seriously people. Enough complaining. You wanted another MP-10. Well, HERE YOU GO!!

Also, Starscream's thighs are backwards.

Fairly certain he means he wants it in the original colours ;)

To be honest though, the core figure itself's deco is virtually the same, just the chrome is blinged out. But as a whole, yes, there are significant differences.

Deco, yes, I meant that not colours. :KREMZEEK: It's Starscream that intrigues me though, if it's going for a G1 look, why red and blue on the thighs? He looks neat though. Prime not so much for me, but a cool release nonetheless.

I never did get to see how good the Cybretron mold of starscream was.
Looks clunky and unstable. Anyone have experience with the mold?
Beautifully colored by the way, now if only i could afford such gems...

Now that MP-10 is perplexing. I cant tell if i like the gold or not...
And since i missed the first MP-10, i won't really complain about the trailer that was
never in the show to being with...

Will these things sell? Did the year of the dragon collectibles sell?
Thanks in Advance!

Stability wasn't really an issue. His shoulders however were INCREDIBLY limited in movement. Otherwise though it's a nice figure, but if you don't have this particular iteration of Starscream ... I'd go the deluxe. Cheaper, essentially the same.

starwarrior1227 makes a point. The trailer was virtually nonexistent. Maybe this represents what happens to it when Prime transforms. It cloaks.

The gold while I dont care for it, would really pop if they did it all gold instead of leaving the chrome wheels and silver metallic body paint. Should all be gold to match with a dark blue that is almost like a midnight metallic blue. That would be sick.

Gold face shield and all. This however doesnt do it for me, MP 10 and 10B are sleeker looking and more pristine in my opinion.

I'm pretty sure there is no deluxe version of that mold. Supreme, which the YotH SS is made out of, Voyager and Legends class.

In any case, the Voyager mold is perfectly stable.

Don't own the supreme version of it but there's no reason to think hes unstable. He's just freaking huge.



In any case, I like SS. Not sure how I feel about the Gangsta Prime with the bling. For some reason, I start hearing Mr. T's voice coming out of that thing. Ah.. Pity the foo that touches mah grill. Ah pity the foo.

YOU HAVE TO FOLD THE POINTY BITS UNDER THE FEET, GODDAMMIT!

Now that this OCD tantrum is out of the way, that Starscream is one repaint that I really, really want. Unfortunately, I bet the price -with shipping to Canada- will be insane. Oh well, at least I have the original Cybertron Supreme Starscream.

So you live in Canada? Why are you worried about shipping then? ToysRUs Canada gets the Platinum Edition figs, including those not sold in the US.

So, just keep an eye on your local TRU.

Just pointing out that the "deluxe" version of the Starscream Cybertron mold does NOT exist. The smaller ones are the legends and voyager molds. Maybe you were thinking about the recent Generations FOC mold. That one is an awesome toy but like the Titanium version, even if it's similar to the Cybertron mold, they are completely different toys.

Back to the Cybertron Starscream mold. The Supreme Class is an upscale of the original voyager mold. The only fault of that mold is that the arms have very limited movement. Appart that, the transformation is simple yet effective. It's a very fun toy that is great loonk in all modes. Anyone who dont like their TF too big can go with the voyager. Many repaints of the voyager mold are available. If anyone want the big guy but don't feel like paying a fortune, the Cybertron Supreme class original is very easy to find everywhere for a very reasonable price.

Tl;Dr, your Strascream collection is not complete without the Cybertron mold. Voyager or Supreme.
