There's no debate that the MP is an engineering improvement, but there's just something off about it to me. I find it kind of... ugly, to be honest.

I think it's the gray. It's a tad too dark.

I literally just thought the same thing!!
Really should’ve been a little lighter... His head & face should contrast with that color more.

May be a camera/monitor thing.
Personally, I think this may be THE MP Starscream MP-11 should have been since the very start. Not counting Meteor that I skipped because IMO, 3P don't count.

I prefer the more realistic asthetic of MP-11 over the puffy cartoon look, personally. If they could make an MP with that asthetic, but this engineering, I'd consider it perfect.

My thoughts exactly. MP-11 was almost perfection, with a few small nitpicks. I don't see how this surpasses it. Like you saud, it's kinda ugly, but for me it's not the gray or light blue. It's more the body itself in robot mode.

I agree. The new one seems too cartoonish and his Seeker boobs look off (the inner hole should be deeper or something, not sure what's off about it). I think I'm also just generally annoyed that we are going to cycle through Masterpiece Seekers again for the 3rd time when there are so many other characters that I'd rather have, especially when I'm very happy with MP-11 Starscream.

Maybe you guys got the Hasbro version of MP-11 at a good price.
For the 300+$CAN I paid, I got scammed with what felt like a regular 60$ leader with his damn loose chest.

Plus this new one being "too cartoony" make it different enough to be worth it IMO.
Let's hope there's no QC or design flaws like for Hound and New-New Optimus.

Same here. I've been waiting for MP Blaster ever since we got Soundwave. It's not like the engineering is that different.

Anyway, back on topic, obviously they're going for the same result they did with MP-44. Though IMO 44 is an improvement over MP-10. But I think in this case it's too much of a good thing. It's like when you put too much icing on a cake.

I really liked the overall look of the original Starscream MP, the one that was like steel blue. I loved the more "realistic" look of it. I'm not a big fan of the more cartoony look of this one. I agree the engineering is pretty fantastic though.

I too, ADORE my original MP-03. But I think of him as "Alternate Universe" Starscream. For a more "toon accurate" Screamers MP-11 should have done the job, but I felt betrayed. This newer MP is what will finally satisfy my Toon Screamers need.

Either you got the wrong link, or the price is already increasing due to high demand with the diminishing quantity.

I think ¥21,361 is for people living in Japan.

I am in the US.

I preordered last week at this price. That is the price it has been all along.

If there is some secret club link to getting that price, please let me know.
