MPM-10 has obvious everything sticking out of the jet mode.

If you like this MPM nonsense, hey, good for you. If I want a halfassed toy, I will stick with the Black Mamba at a third of the price.

How many people look at the jet toys from underneath? Even if you display in alt mode. You'll be looking at above. No one is going to be displaying this by balancing the jet on his rear end.

I do this display often but obviously, the underside face the wall.

Also, I can forgive a jetformer to be a total mess under. As long that it's not sticking out too much from the side and nothing is visible above.

Those who want perfect jets better stick with bots that have the vehicle mode as top priority like the classic Gobots from the 1980's.

I was being extreme when I said that Krana :lol: I didn't realise anyone actually did it! No offence :) but yeah expecting a perfectly clean jet mode is unnecessary. The robot is the main attraction. The vehicle here looks fine as is, and clearly you don't need to display with the hand weapons attached, thats just a place to store them for vehicle mode if you so wish.

I like how MPM-1 and MPM-10 are both Starscreams, comparable to MP-1 and MP-10 both being Optimus Primes (aka Convoys).

That robot mode looks great, but the jet mode deco is a fail with those blue spots on there. I love the HFTD leader, and if I get this figure, it'll strictly be in robot mode, with that one in jet mode.

I was going to ask what you meant by blue on the wings as the pictures I'd seen didn't have any blue till I saw that one of them did. How curious that the others didn't.

Yeah some have them gray, some blue. So which is it? The gray bothers me as well, but not nearly as much.

The video and the initial announcement image are grey, so I'm tempted to go with that but I could never be a hundred percent.

I'm thinking that as well, because blue just wouldn't make sense. In none of the movies Starscream was in was he any type of blue. Or white, either. The more I look at these shots, the more I'm convinced I should just stick with the HFTD figure.

Well look, with Optimus Prime, it turned out that the ROTF Leader was the better toy than the MPM. For this, I think both will be as good in their own way. I might still preffer the HFTD for how elegant the undercarriage is handled. it was there, but it was smoothe enough.

As for the gray vs blue discussion, it's a problem with the lighting. Grey (just like black) is always a mixture of a darker tint of either blue, green or purple, because there is no such thing as actual black in pigmentation. So in this case, the grey comes from a blue pigment and can reflect differently given the lightsource and accompanying manipulation of the photo.

"MPM-X"? :???:

Anyway, something tells me the "blue" is more of a trick of the lighting or hue settings. You know, "what color is the dress?" :lol:

Well X is ten in roman numerals... Though why they'd switch to that numbering scheme now is weird

Articulation looks amazing, but something about this just leaves me disappointed. it just seems like it should be so much more than the original leader class and Studio Series than it is.

I dunno.

I want it, but I thought there would be more sheen or shine to it if I'm being clear enough. I think I just expected more of a shiny metal look in anticipation of the reveal. I kept thinking of all of the sunshine that Michael Bay incorporated in those films and how the light was constantly playing off the Bots and Cons.

No offence at all.
It's a valid way to display the jets. They usually stand up pretty well! However, the Movie jet cannot stand up like this because of the way it's made. It dosent have a "tripod".

It looks like a retool of the HFTD Starscream.

It really comes down to stability/QC issues for me, because at least on appearances this blows the HFTD leader out of the water for me. They finally got the proportions right - as much as I like the leader and SS figures, they haven't really been able to get the torso proportions right. It's also huge that the robot mode wings are formed from the primary wings instead of the rear fins! It looks so much better.

$150 is actually better than I was expecting, but still a lot more than I've ever spent on a Transformer before. We'll have to see, I'm excited to see more pictures/videos in the meantime!
