Amazon Japan has a new image for the robot mode of the 10th Movie Anniversary Starscream figure Takara is releasing. This is the deco from the first film used for the Revenge of the Fallen voyager toy. He is currently 25% off on Amazon and while the site is entirely in Japanese, it is now possible for foreigners to order toys from the site. This anniversary line has also been featured in the latest Figure King magazine, and we have a scan from Loopaza.

Starscream looks gorgeous painted up like this. Why didn't we get a release like this YEARS ago?

Man, Starscream looks so different without the tattoos. It should be the better deco because it's more realistic and all, but I think now I'm too used to him having black lines scrawled over him after owning the original (and Leader) for, like, forever now.

We did get a similarly painted release years ago, except it was on this mold:

Not to mention we got the deco on the Leader Class figure as well... as a Masterpiece:

I have the movie/leader Starscream. As such, I see no need to get this stripped-down Voyager.....

Well, it becomes the best voyager Starscream out there and several people need a voyager for the scale.

The mold is not really all that bad. I enjoy playing around with it form time to time. Its one of the few movie toys I keep out to actually play with.

Like me! :D
I'm super excited for the silver decoed ROTF Voyager Megatron too. I like the DOTM Voyager Megatron, but the character needs a beefier mold to represent him on my live action movie shelves.

Takara Tomy already did a "Movie 1" deco for DOTM deluxe Starscream for the "Movie Advanced" line a few years ago, for the release of Age of Extinction (a.k.a. "The Lost Age" in Japan).

Ended up pre-ordering Leader class Optimus Prime, too, when I realized he's basically the same size as MP-10 and has MP level paint apps. I don't have this mold, I got the Hunt for the Decepticons Voyager version among other versions of the guy, but never the improved Leader mold. I'm looking forward to playing around with it. Is this mold compatible with Jetfire?

I am not sure if its compatible with jetfire since part of the connection deals with the abs which are remolded in this new version. But trust me, its better that way. The combiation with jetfire is not fun and prone to breakage. If you dont have this mold, that leader is the way to go since this is Takara releasing the latest amazing $200 + APS Ultimate Prime for their own market at a way more affordable price.

We have a better look at MB-11 Leader Optimus Prime from the movie anniversary line Takara is releasing. He has been reviewed on Japanese site Digimono. Through this review, we learn what weapons he comes with, we see some new images, and we learn that he will have new sound clips from Japanese G1 (and movie) Optimus Prime voice actor Tesshō Genda. You may be wondering how this toy is already finished when he is coming out March 2017 and all the images for the other toys in this line are just digitally painted. Well, that's because this toy already exists as Asia exclusive APS-01 Ultimate Optimus Prime, which so far has been a toy with an MSRP of over $200. With this Japanese release of this toy, they have improved him by giving Optimus a mouthplate and they reduced the amount of accessories to bring the pricepoint down to the $70-$100 range. The acessories he does have are two swords, two hooks, the gas tanks which turn into a gun and the knuckle accessory Optimus used against Shockwave is Dark of the Moon. This accessory was new and exclusive to the APS-01 release so far, as were the articulated hands, and all these features can now be obtained for a much lower price. This item is currently on preorder everywhere Takara toys are sold online.

I'm mildly interested in the Starscream figure as its a mold if Screamy I don't have. That would, however, require me to financially support the movie side of the business. I swore a long time ago never to do that again. Such a pickle......

At the very least, it's a good mold.

The way I see it, you are supporting Takara's practice to celebrate anniversaries and give us awesome paint apps, more than anything else. These are older molds and Hasbro already got all the support for those so this wouldnt really count in their numbers (at least not nearly as much as when that mold first came out).

I encourage whatever I like, and I like these. So I am buying 3 :)

And guys, I cannot stress it enough how awesome it is that we are getting this leader Optimus at that price.

This version looks so nice. Does anybody know if it can still combine with ROTF Jetfire? I assume he can but you never know. I sold my ROTF leader Prime awhile ago, but I still have Jetfire and I was thinking about picking this one up.

Do you remember where Jetfire connects with prime in that belly area? I ask because the 5 areas retooled for this release are the following:

Forearms: no longer have swing out sword (thank GOD)
Hands: now have articulated fingers
Gas tanks: now removeable
Abdominal area: those red hook pieces have been cut and the abdominal area was resulpted to look like organic abs.

Jetfire hooks onto the feet (no problem) and pelvis. Now I do not know if the reworked abdominal area means any change to the pelvis. If it does, then he cant connect, but if it doesnt and the pelvis is intact, then it would still be able to connect.
