The figure is priced a £139.99 (approx $220) and scheduled to release in 2012.

It may be a remold. Looks like the gray pieces may indicate the updated parts.

And then there's cost-it's 139 euros, that's going to be about 200 dollars. And that, unless this turns out to be an amazing new figure, means a big pass by me.


The Kapow listing is £139.99 (UK Pounds, we dont do Euros). According to xe.com that is $220.

Lol that looks like they re-molded the figure to resemble the original prototype.
I knew waiting would pay off.
But I already have a full set of classics Seekers, do I really want to go throught he same crap again for MP scale figures?

Ah, good catch-I missed that. And if that's the case, even worse for a potential remold.

The more I think about it the angrier I get, thats nearly twice the price it should be. Im sure the old seekers were about £80 to the UK. Its a rip off.

Not impressed. For that price (if accurate) I'll stick with what I have.

Totally and utterly pointless. We get few enough of these things and to blow a slot on this is pretty unforgivable. I already have all the MP Starscream I'm ever going to need. And Skywarp, and Thundercracker and I never cared enough about the coneheads to want to spend MP money on them so enough is definitely enough.

Somewhere Waylon Smithers is shouting and pointing "but he has a new hat.....!!!"

New characters only Hastak or you don't get my money from now on.

what a massive waste of time and money and resources, utter shit! serious pass! ffs why release something thats ALREADY out? your can get the igear starscream and the coronation kit for cheaper than this

absolute waste of time. why not release something people actually WANT like a masterpiece Galvatron?

For that price you can buy 2 of the iGear reworked seekers.
They also solved the hip kibble problem.

Easy pass >:oP

a few thoughts on this
the bad
1)im really dissapointed with this personally
2)for 200 bucks i expect more sorry takara
3)its looking more and more like a magnus will be at least 3-400 dollars the way these are priced.
the good
1)if it is a remold then it gives those who dont have tc a chance to get an official trio of seekers albeit for nosebleed prices
2)if they rethink the pricing this would possibly shut igear out of the picture(not completely)
3)a slight bit of hope that theyll do the coneheads because thats all i want.
>:oP


the really bad another 30-40 threads about this mp :BANG_HEAD:

all in all takara has saved me a buttload of money >:oP

What I'm gathering from this is that MPs are gonna cost $200 from now on.

I have to admit, both SS and OP are impressive, but $200 isn't chump change. What's justifying this? A gigantic plastic cape?

It looks so much ling the original prototype of MP Starscream from 2006!!!

I'll post pics later.

*sigh*
This should have been done the FIRST TIME. I would have bought this back in the day, even at $200, but I really cannot justify the cost for this. IDK, I love Screamer, but in this day and age of financial hardship, it's pick and choose and I don't think I can choose this as much as I want to, especially for a figure I basically have already.

Looks like more of my money is going to 3rd parties (again) for 2012.

Is that the price for the 3 seeker box set?

This new price point for the MP line is even lamer than the unnecessary reboot. Are these stupid accessories supposed to make up the more than $100 difference of the previous versions? They're not doing a very good job answering iGear's bell by putting out similar product for twice the price...
