I hope not to sound like a broken record, yet nowadays most G1 Masterpiece toys look way too bland, especially in robot mode.

This new version of Starscream still retains a splendid alt. mode, yet since I'm displaying figures in their robot modes, I couldn't be happier with my old MP-11; unless a never-made-before Seeker get released, I don't think I'll ever bother with this specific mold.

I miss the times when the line tried to merge the looks of classical toys and their animated counterparts, cramming them with extra detail; I also feel disappointed with this specific release since it'll probably mean we won't get another new Decepticon in a while, as Seekers always come in (at least) three - and I can't help but fear that even Soundwave will eventually get remade.

It will come together with an Optimus Prime body, for simmetry. And to double its price.

Is it me or do the wings on the robot mode seem to sit just a tad bit lower than they ought to?

Perspective and the wings are most likely to be adjustable.

Now that it's in colour, I feel torn.
It looks a little too... Cartoony.
I know, I know, That's the whole point, But it feels a bit excessive.
Hrm.

Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful figure, and if it's under 200 dollars, I'd be sorely tempted. However, I'd like to remind everyone that Takara is STILL giving us a figure that has been done to death by not only them but third party companies as well.

Where is Mirage? Jazz? Insecticons? Reflector? Any of the minibots besides Bumblebee?

Or how about any of these amazing candidates that don't need licenses: Blaster, Perceptor, Scourge, Cyclonus, Kup, Blurr, Galvatron, Springer or any of the other season 3 guys? Heck, I'd take a Masterpiece Sharkticon at this point over another Transformer that's already gotten the Masterpiece treatment already. We've been collecting this line for 16 years! I'd really like to have the season 1 cast completed finally or the season 2 cast before redoing these other guys for a 2nd or 3rd time.

My Kingdom for MP headmasters. Especially Apeface and Snapdragon.

He looks pretty cool but I can't justify that price. I just hope MP-11 goes for a bit cheaper so I can upgrade from the MP3 mold haha

Keep in mind this is a fans rendering. In hand it could look much different.

Damn... I was really thinking we would maybe get him for $200-$220...
$275 is freaking steep!
That really is pretty tough to justify.
I'm definitely holding off for now... Sure, I can save up for a couple months, I'm just not sure I even want to. Geesh.

I wouldn't worry just yet, let's see what Amazon JP puts the figure up for.

The new photo isn't a fan rendering/coloring, he's in poses we haven't seen before so it would be strange for it to be digitally painted.

I'll brag about being correct about the price once Japanese pre-orders go up. :-D

I'll wait to hear from ID Toys or Kapow also. TFSource, in my experience, are one of the more expensive online outlets.

Around $200 on Amazon Japan, but more precisely I said his price would mirror Black Convoy's price, and so far the pre-orders are right in line with that (MP-49 is $270 on TFSource compared to Starscream's $275). It's a far cry from the $400 a lot of people were expecting.
