Huge thanks to Cyberpath for posting what may not be an exaggeration to call a ton of new official photos (38 of them!) of MP-52 Starscream ver.2.0 in the Seibertron Energon Pub forums! We've got photos from store listings, like from Hobby Link Japan, photos from Dengeki Hobby Web, and photos comparing photos to the cartoon scenes they're based on. It's a lot to look at, showing off all of the ridiculous things this figure can do and all of his accessories. Plus, thanks to the aforementioned store listings we now know the official untaxed Japanese MSRP is ¥28,000 JPY or about $265 USD, but we're already seeing the price as low as $203 USD at AmiAmi and possibly even lower once Amazon Japan gives their global delivery listing price. And if you still find that price too high, well, you've got until June 2021 to save up!

There's a lot to see so I wont take up time gushing about wing storage, the many expression choices, or the ridiculously obscure accessories. Enjoy the phots and let us know what you think in the forums!

He doesn't appear to have waist articulation. Not sure if that's make or break for me. Still seems to pull off some toon likeness poses though. Overall, he looks good.

He looks amazing, and $265 is definitely a way better price than what I was afraid he'd be (I was assuming at least $300 USD) but sadly he's out of my budget zone. If I somehow miraculously find him for less than $200 then I might get him, but sadly I don't see myself taking the plunge with the current price.

Day 282 of waiting for Transformers Armada Masterpiece news.

Appears to come with the same one from Dinobot, but in purple. Same exact price as Dinobot, and for that matter Black Convoy, too. Seems the 28,000 JPY price is the current standard upper price point now (MP-43 Beast Megatron and MP-44 Optimus Prime are the only ones to ever exceed that).

No waist swivel, but he does have a rare ab crunch so that's nice.

Wow, they managed to squeeze an entire faux cockpit in there? The price seems steep but Starscream is starting to look like he's got some good engineering going on while keeping some of the fun of the older MP seeker mould.

Takara Tomy continues to save me money with this "Anime Accurate" nonsense, itself and oxymoron, as the cartoon was riddled with errors.

The rounded off hands and limbs really have destroyed Masterpiece for me. I what sharp edges. I want mechanical detail! They're machines! Take us back to the original MP aesthetic please!

Saying all that, I understand some people like this shift and I'm glad they're enjoying it. Just not for me.

some of the facial expressions are a bit derpy

dunno if I can justify the price, you can't help but think that if they really wanted to, they could make a much cheaper version as a voyager in the SS line that would be a great compromise for most G1 fans...

I'm actually surprised it doesn't come with his trademark cape & crown.

The weird jet undercarriage is not a dealbreaker for me. Especially for a bot that look this AMAZING.

Plus that backpack is impressively small and compact. Those who complained about it may change their mind once they see those pictures.

Once the official Amazon.JP preorders are up, I will SMASH that button! :BOWDOWN: :APPLAUSE:

I'm actually releived. This would have boosted the overall price significantly. Especially if they'd did like for MP-11.

Continues to look pretty good. I won't be ordering it, but it's still looking pretty good. I like some of the engineering tricks they put into it, it's pretty dang nice

For Australian's who may want him and can actually afford him.

EB Games pre-order

For the low low price of $50 ... you can place a deposit and pre-order him, then come 30 June 2021 you can take him for an extra $459! Just run up your credit card, then submit your tax return the next week and take full advantage of ScoMo's tax cuts! *BOOM*

P.S. Fuck you TakaraTomy for pricing so many of us out of the MP market.

Still looking good for the most part. Could just be the image on a screen but the blue pops a little too much, in my opinion. Also, the blast effects are cool but, as always, I just don't care for most of the accessories. The sheer amount of faces is cool but they don't all work for me. AAAAAND I'm bummed ther s no coronation gear. That was like the ONE accessory I was hoping for haha!

Wow.

If Amazon.JP ship to Australia (and it would be surprising if they wouldn't) just order from them when the listing go live. Unless some American store pull a Target, it will be the best price.

Starscreams head looks off to me, dunno what it is. Safe to say I'm passing with the price of it.

I'm waiting for the REAL listing, meaning from Amazon.JP themselves. The price will be the right one, and they ship internationally.


That's what I thought but wasn't sure. This is the one though, right?

What amazes me about just about every Starscream that has come out in the past 5 years from every continuity is that the siege one might be the only one to have a waist swivel. No one else gets one, not even this MP it seems
