    My Masterpiece Starscream just arrived and I haven't even Transformed it. Why did I think that it came with a Decepticon Crown of Leadership? That was practically all that I wanted it for!:cry  I already have a Classics Starscream and I know people aught to ask why I have both.
    I'm weighing whether or not I should sell it now. Am I unreasonable?

    No, you aren't unreasonable at all. He is a sub-par Masterpiece figure.

    And I'd be happy to buy it from you, if you sell.

    If you really don't like it, sell it, no use living with something you're unhappy with if it's such an easy fix. You'll be out some cash probably, but better than being stuck with the thing if you hate it right?

    Me thinks they will release an exclusive that does come with crown and cape/shoulder dress. He has the holes in his head and shoulders for them.

    I'm getting a lot of reverse psychology here.:rolleyes2  I'm sure this is a great figure, I just need to recalibrate where exactly it should fit in my collection, if I do keep it. I had a whole story-arc around that crown going. I might still come up with something new. Has anyone ever tried to fit Cybertron Starscream's crown on this figure? I've got that!

    Amen to that.

    Besides, you won't have to find him, you order him online. Unless you live in Japan.;)

    The ONLY thing that's stopping me from getting MP Starscream is the paint aps.

    Once it's released in show accurate colors I'll be all over it.

    Sub-par? He's as good if not better than the more expensive Yamato valks.

    It was a titanic missed opportunity that Kawamori didn't design the crown and shoulderplates to transform into a FASTpack.

    The only thing that is sub-par about him is the crappy wing joints that split, various QC errors, and perhaps the paint job. You have nobody to blame but yourself for thinking it came with a crown.

    Other than that, he's awesome.
