    How silly.

    Alternators Prime blows away KISS Convoy in vehicle mode, but Alternators Prime looks like a piss poor knock-off in robot mode when compared to KISS Convoy.

    Since I display my Alts in robot mode, Takaratomy trumps Hasbro.

    :(

    wow, Starscreams proportions look MUCH better in that 3/4 angle. I'm thinking the shot we got yesterday wasn't the most glamorous angle :p 

    yeah, that's pretty dramatic. I'm still on the fence, i just don't think the molds good at all, but it's so much better than the Alt version, do i get it for completionists sake (i have every BT and original Alt except Ravage)? ...must resist, MP Convoy is good enough for me...

    Wow... What a difference a few paint apps make on Convoy/Prime when they stand next to each other... I'm not sure if I like the chromed grill on the alt mode though Convoy... I don't remember Rams having a chrome grill... Do they???

    I'm lovin' the stand for Starscream... LOVIN' IT...

    Wow. MP Starscream looks fantastic. I can't wait to get 2, one of robot mode and one for alt mode.

    How anyone can complain about him is beyond me.

    Oh well, some people aren't happy unless they're miserable....

    Yeah, I'm facing the same dilemma... We must resist the temptation of the ugly molds!

    Is anyone else disturbed by the female figures from the Kiss line? I've watched my share of ecchi anime, but this just makes me shudder.

    Yup Screamer looks way better in that angle. I have a question: Where the heck do those big arms go in alt mode???

    By apparently buying Galaxy Force DVD, vol. 13. The sentence that mentions "Noisemaze Mass Production Type" explains this. Other than that, pray that somebody wants the DVD set and not the fig. and beg for it. :D

    They can buy the DVD without the figure. The DVDs by themselves cost about $60, so your only paying about $30 for that recolor if you can turn arround and sell the DVD.

    Mass production eh, that means we should spend the cash and buy a few of them right?

    Starscream is a thing of beauty. I hope we see Skywarp and Thundercracker but I wonder. Takara never released them opting instead for ghost Starscream, black Starscream and Sunstorm.

    from fantofan:
    "3. Pictures of Prototype MP-03 Starscream are shown, featuring both robot mode and jet mode. The design has been edited and proofread by Kawamori Shoji, the designer who did Hybrid G1 Convoy."

    Thats why the figure seems a bit off. Showing the Starscream prototype at a new angle simply masks some of it's falws. I do see a ray of hope. The preview apparantly states that they are still looking to improve the figure. In that case I will repost this pic....

    With those mods, the waist area looks too slim and not "transformer" like. It gives a much too human look to it. Plus, when you turn that mod 45 degrees, it makes the waist look even thinner. I like the way the crotch area is a bit bigger than the legs; It's the classic look of Transformers to me.

    golden age, you are starting to annoy me.

    the amount of re enginering needed to scale up and manipulate the toy in question like you want probally isnt cost effective.

    i'm happy with the toy, the reasons for its proportions have been covered to death so i can accept what we've got.
