Tempting to get the TT MP version, but I need to stick to my few to none movie toys.

Seeing this gallery, especially the comparison shots to Movie repaint Deep Space SS, confirms my opinion of this figure: not a MP. This looks no better than a premium repaint-doesn't even appear to have any remolded parts. Definitely not seeing 2x the figure here. Buster Prime was way better than this.

the vehicle mode looks so much like a regular model plane!, if i ever get this
(which i probably wont since its probably 3x times more expensive than the other one) then i have no idea what mode i should display it in!

I think I will pass on this and just get the HFTD version, What I would like to see in the masterpiece series is more G1 based figures.

Saying that what would anyone else like to see as amasterpiece figure, to get things started a list of possibles;

Optimus Primal
Beast Wars Megatron
The remaining Dinobots.
Soundwave with Ravage, laserbeak, Rumble and frenzy
Hot Rod
Jazz
G1 Bumbleebee

I admit this is a little underwhelming, but then again real F22s aren't shiny. I still want this version though.

Actually, real F-22's ARE shiny. Most of the aircraft is painted in a weird metallic gray that changes tone depending on the angle of the light hitting it. That's why in some photos the radome and edges of the aircraft (which are painted in a RAM paint that does not have this effect) sometimes appear lighter and sometimes appear darker than the rest of the plane.

It gives modelers fits to replicate the look, and has led to products like this:

Movieverse Shattered Glass Masterpiece Starscream? What a title. For those not in the know, red Decepticon symbols are from Shattered Glass. Why is he mistransformed in such an obvious way? The legs are too straight. I am not sure which version I am going to buy. Hopefully the tattoos from Hasbro's can be removed with a little alcohol.

To me Leader and Masterpiece are like the same thing both in size and transformation skill level. It just seems odd because Masterpiece has only been used for G1 and Leader has only been used for the movie and animated lines. The 2 have never crossed paths before but it makes perfect sense. In my opinion all the Leader class figures have been "Masterpieces" when compared to their deluxe or voyager counterparts.

And for the record, this version looks so sweet that every time I look at my Hasbro version, I hate the tattoos even more...

Absolutely marvelous. When this first came out, I was expecting just a shinier version of the American release, but he looks like a real F-22! If a not-so-smart-kid got this without the packaging, I bet he would think it wasn't a Transformer, it looks so real :lol: :lol:

I will agree with that on ROTF Leader Optimus Prime, however, not all leader classes have been up to the level of Masterpice. Would you class Movie 1 Optimus a Masterpiece or both Megatron's? What about Animated Megatron? It is pretty easy to transform compared to Masterpiece figures.

Well, I guess I got lucky with my RotF Prime. I have no trouble with him at all. Also, the only way to better it was to slightly remold it and give him a transforming gun.

Which TakaraTomy did: Buster Optimus Prime. :P

I'm not getting Leader Screamer either way, I'll be happy with a discounted Voyager. He's simply too big and gimmicky for his type of character.

Is it just me or does the KO Toys label in the upper left corner look like a rip off Go-Bots label?

Oh, the toy...hm, it looks pretty cool. I won't be getting one though since I already have a movie Starscream, don't need another one.

Not worth $100.00 by any stretch of the imagination. Now that I have 'Screamer in hand, I can honestly say he is. Optimus, yes. Him, no.

However, I do like the fact that their's isn't made out of gold and brown plastic. I still fear that ours will crumble when the time is right. Just way too much gold to be playing with.

That's exactly what it is. He thinks he's being funny and cool, but he's not. And I'm so sick and tired of Go-Bot hate. Their show and movie were better quality than G1.

This really isn't a Masterpiece-class figure. I mean, the original Masterpiece Starscream has amazing detailing that goes far beyond what this figure demonstrates, and practically no robot kibble in Jet mode.

This toy is just a tarted up Leader-class figure and while it looks nice, a masterpiece it is not.

Besides there are already too many Masterpiece Starscream figures. Two main colorways, and then repaints as the other Seekers. How about a Masterpiece Soundwave or something? Masterpiece G1 Bumblebee or Ironhide? Full-trailer Masterpiece Ultra Magnus? That would be an awesome figure.

...Deluxe? I think you might have the wrong figure in mind. There was no Deluxe Class Starscream...

At least try the US Leader Class. If it doesn't change your mind into upgrading, nothing will.
