    Edit: TFsource has put up a video review: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ews-starscream-deluxe-coronation-add-kit.html


    This isn't really a review, so I hope I'm posting this in the right section.

    Because of my involvement with the project, I got a sample of this kit. And because of my involvement, I may be bias, but this is a great kit for its value.

    Note: I think I dropped my camera one too many times, so please excuse the poor quality of pictures.

    The packaging is standard blister on a card.

    The Coronation set itself is nicely done. The colors are solid with no noticeable over spray. Every thing fits tightly. No null blasters falling off.

    The pauldrons has a short peg inside that pegs into the screw holes behind the shoulders. It's tight enough that you can adjust the angle of the them as you please. The Crown fits tightly, and won't fall off.


    DSC00408.JPG
    The cape is thick, almost like velvet. And hooks onto two hooks behind the pauldrons and underneath the wings. This kind of gives it a flowing look, and a sense of proper scale with some folds (it's not just hanging straight, seemingly against gravity like most soft good accessories for smaller toys).

    I didn't take too many pictures, mainly because everything came out fuzzy when i got too close. Sorry!


    But here's the real treat! It comes with extra parts to make Leader-1 looking seeker!

    Leader-1_12.jpg
    There's the extra head, you'll have to disassemble Starscream a bit first. The hard part is hammering the pin that holds the nosecone in place. BE REAL CAREFUL! The head fits perfectly!

    In plane mode, the head almost, but not completely blends in with the shape of the fuselage.

    The other parts are these wing pivots so Leader-1 can have his wings folded backwards. BE CAREFUL when removing Starscreams pivots from the main body. Don't pull or bend them out, they WILL break. Use a small screwdriver to push them out from the inside. Same when you're taking the kit's pivot's off of the main body. Push them out, don't pull or bend. THEY WILL BREAK!

    Leader-1_07.jpg

    Once in, they fit like a glove, they stay up and back nicely. I wouldn't put too much force folding them while transforming tho.

    You can keep these on Starscream so the wings fold away a bit, giving screamer more freedom of movement.



    Thanks for looking!

    I have this pre-ordered. Do the guys making this have any plans to release a Null Ray pack? I'd buy enough to outfit all of my seekers if there was.

    Great looking set, can't wait 'till mine gets here!
    The null-rays look a little on the white side, I hope they match the colour on Henkei Starscream.
    The Leader-1 head and the optional wing swivel are a nice bonus.

    I'm guessing TFSource will be receiving theirs shortly :D

    I can't speak for them, but there's nothing planned that I know of.


    I was told that this sample are pre-production samples. Whether or not they are done/close to being done, I don't know.


    TFsource has it here:

    This and the MP Coronation are spiffy and all, but what I'd really like to see is a cape and crown set for a G1 Starscream toy.

    The white parts look like they were meant to match Universe Starscream.

    Pretty interesting set.

    Are we sure, the Leader 1 parts are comming with this set? I only ask because they aren't mentioned at all on the Pre-order page and I really have no interest in the coronation stuff on its own.

    This ended up looking really nice, and the added Leader 1 stuff is really cool. I'm gonna haveto pick up an extra Screamer so that I can add Leader 1 to my Seeker collection :D

    My love for Starscream is all but shouted out from the top of the Space Needle, but I don't know if I'll be picking this set up. Not really a must-have as far as Starscream-related merch goes. I don't own, and never really considered, the MP set as well.

    I don't know. Maybe I just don't like being reminded of how he died.
