With much anticipation the first images of TakaraTomy’s Masterpiece Starscream USA Edition have surfaced on Hobby Link Japan. This version is similar to the U.S. release except it lacks most of the weathering. As previously reported, the release date has been postponed until February.


Check out the images below:

Your links take me to "This image has been stolen from HLJ.com :lol:

I really think those pics are of a slightly cleaned up WM SS. The dark missile tips, nose and stickers applied to the wings seems suspicious to me.

I know this is probably blasphemy but...that's the oddest colored jet I've ever seen. I'm actually glad that Takara did their version now...much more realistic. It's definitely the Starscream we all knew and loved, but the colors are just dopey.

Sooooo the only difference that we get is that the nose cone is black, the scoring marks on the back of the jet are gone... but everything else is pretty much the same...

and you have to pay double for it??

I'm sticking to the Wal-Mart version, which with a little patience I know will soon show up...

I agree. I may try to get it cheaper from my friend in HK. Double the price for so few differences is not worth it IMHO.

Call me a purist (I rather not use the "F" word typically attached to and that rhymes with TransFans:P ) but I just LOVE this version. :x For the price they're asking for it, I expect a detailed, show accurate and mega-sophisticated figure! :CON: :CON2:

This isn't the "clean" version a lot of people were expecting, there is still some 'scoring' and i'm not sure the dark nosecone is the way to go (blue baby, blue).

I can see a lot of collectors (who might have been waiting for the Takara version) jumping on the wal-mart version now, considering the price and marginal color difference.

The one thing i wanted them to fix was the black wing-flap joints - wasn't. poo.

Looks exactly the same as my Hasbro version. The only difference is that the nose cone is black. (which the Hasbro version is actually blue under all that weathering)

I was hoping to see a new gallery of this here on seibs...
