Here we get a good look at the prototype from all angles, including the undercarriage. We can see from the last picture that Starscream is capable of doing a Macross inspired GERWALK mode.

There is still no details on price or what accessories this Starscream will come with.

What do you think of this Starscream? Do you think they finally got it right? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I want to hug him and love him and treat him as my own.

Looks pretty good. Maybe too good.. I may have to buy it. The price will be a very big factor for me though.
So far I like what I see though. :D

Takara themselves are calling it version 2 as both mp 3 and 11 are based off the same prototype.

Wait, MP-11 didn't have its own prototype? MP-3 and MP-11 are pretty different from each other...

This is what I was told when I thought it was version 3.0

Since MP-11 was a retool of MP-3, Takara is treating MP-11 as a sort of "Version 1.5", while this is an all new mold like how MP-10 and MP-44 were both new molds compared to MP-1 (MP-4 would thus be the "Version 1.5" of Convoy).

This MP suffer from obvious "bot under jet" syndrome and... that's it!

The bot is sublime perfection with the most compact and flat "backpack" ever. Seriously nice!
Now, for the final pictures in color and the dreadful price reveal...


I don’t think the underside looks that bad...
But agreed with the rest of what you said.
I’m definitely not looking forward to seeing the price for this guy...
Over 3-hundo & it’s going to be tough to pull the trigger.

I love everything but the vents not being more curved, but there's really nothing that can be done about that, but this is the best way to implement it.

I mean, the "2.0" is written right there in the pictures.

He’s looking pretty good. I’m trying to quit the mp line. However, I have a nice deception shelf... and starscream is the original green grey version. So a new version I. Toon accurate colours to complete the mean girls squad shelf oils be great. Hope he is not too complicated or flimsy.

Triple Changer Starscream, eh? Gerwalk Mode, nice! :-D

So let's start speculating on price.

The Insanity Ceiling being MP-44. I don't think they will try to fleece SS fans that much. As I do feel this might be lower than expected. Especially considering, long term, they will get a lot of characters out of this new Seeker mold. To offset the cost of the new mold itself.

I'm thinking somewhere between $200-250 and no more, possibly landing closer to the $200 mark personally.

That sounds about right to me as well. It is a little strange there has been this much publicity for the new MP with zero pricing announced yet though.

You have the original Greenscream but not MP-11? Lemme tell you, having Greenscream and this Starscream 2.0 side by side will look amazing. Not only will you have a "real" Starscream, but you will see the evolution. Plus Greenscream is legendary and can act as a separate character. Despite his fragility, Greenscream is one of my most prized MP figure.

Speaking of the original MP mold, the bot was far from perfect but it was one of the most perfect jet ever.

I shooped both undersides together. Too bad I couldn't find the same angle for the old MP-03 because it's also perfectly seamless from the sides.

New Screamers don't have a perfect jet mode but the bot is perfection. MP-03 had the most perfect jet mode for a Starscream ever, but the but was so imperfect, it was controversial and had the fans screeching at the time.

I agree that the most important part of a MP is the bot mode so I can tolerate an imperfect vehicle. Too bad they didn't follow that rule for their latest Bee...

In comparison I'm thinking that for jet mode, the only real difference is that 3.0's bot arms fold behind his back? Otherwise there isn't too much difference. Beyond cosmetic changes ala the shins.

The difference is huge. Transformation will not work the same at all. Plus Newscream have a robot body pretty obvious under the jet while Oldscream is way more sleek everywhere. Turned the pic B&W to better compare:

It's more than just "cosmetics".

As I've never had that figure, from the picture, the only real change I see is that the older one had the arms fold out in front of the bot mode chest. The new one tucks them in behind it.

As Seibertron's resident jet nerd I can confirm MP-03 is frighteningly accurate to a real F-15. Now to be fair the jet mode on this new one isn't bad at all, even from underneath. The problem, ironically enough, is that the robot mode is so fixated on making the jet parts disappear that he ends up with a mahoosive backpack, a no-doubt insufferable transformation, most of the jet parts on the robot mode being fake (the jet cockpit is actually visible behind the fake one on his chest!), no waist swivel and no doubt a ludicrous pricepoint. All to achieve something that didn't need to happen in the first place. Like, Starscream is supposed to be a robot made of jet, not a jet with a completely different looking robot hidden inside like a genie in a lamp. Would it hurt that much to have jet surface detail visible in robot mode if it meant a better transformation, no fake parts and a less awful backpack?
