Further confirming that King Grimlock is a total rip-off.

I'm all over this. And I'll officially need a new space to hold my MP Seekers this year.

Thats a target price, it may be more or less. But really, its an MP, whats so suprising about $130.00? You must be used to Hasbro release prices.

It references Starscream's Ghost from the G1 animated series.

Personally, I would like to see the other seekers before this. I'm still waiting for a Classics Sunstorm.

Clear -masterpeice Starscream? That thing will break after just a minutes of "play", seriously, normal masterpiece Starscream is already extremely fragile. I'm not saying I totally dislike the idea but at least make him in the correct colors, the first one looked like Zombie Starscream.
They should make Masterpiece G2 Megatron, that would be awesome.

WHAT ?!?! WHAT?!?!? *faints*


*revives*


DEAR GOD!!!

1. I just bloody got mp skywarp and now there's a new aeeeker in the works???
2. i wonder how they are going to work the diecast parts. probably just going to be grey paint eh?
3. this had better not be hasbro 2010 MP that they promised in the last Q&A (I'm really really hoping for black mp prime)
I don't have any clear TFs and would love one of these but dear god! I don't think I could justify another of this specific mold (as I have never bought a second of any mold to date)

My guess would have been between $70-$90.

Yeah the price sucks but considering Starscream is my favorite of all time, I might consider buying this one if it is a general release that is not tooo hard to get.

He won't be hard to get in the least, you can pre-order him right now and have six months to save up the money.

all the MP seekers have been at least $100. I'm not surprised(and in fact, happy) by the price. very much looking forward to this. Also, I don't know who the heavy hands are that transform their MP seekers, but I've never thought they were very fragile. I've transformed them lots of times with no problems.

The only thing that has ever broken on me is one of the tail fins of MP 06, right where it folds up. Its such a thin strip of plastic that it easily snapped, and the ironic part is that the same piece broke on my Classics Skywarp, even on the same side.

Agreed. Considering deluxe ghost Starscream was like 80 or 90 bucks, $130 for the MP version is quite reasonable IMO. I actually kinda feared a release of this figure because I knew I would want it, but thought it would run King Grimlock prices or worse...

It is a bit annoying that the latest Masterpieces are all repaints. I really hope TakaraTomy use the cash from Comic Grimlock, Black Convoy and Ghost Starscream to fund some brand new Masterpiece figures. Hoping for Galvatron, Rodimus Prime and Soundwave.

I definitely agree. It's great to get variations of existing molds but at the same time, I'd like to see more advancement in the Masterpiece line.

I just put in my preorder! I missed MP because I wasn't that into collecting again when he came out. Then Walmart didn't get the US repaint when it came out. I am really happy to see another MP Starscream.

I was surprised with the price on this guy as well. When the rumors of this first hit, I figured he would be going for the same price as King Grimlock. While I am not happy about dropping $150, I can still afford it.
