    Oh yeah that kiss stuff -stay away, well away.

    Starscream's Jet mode - looks very nice. Bot mode, well, ok, but I love the jet mode.

    Aside from the questionable nature of Marissa's pose on the box....


    Moving the picture of Convoy into the background, and making it faded, whilst Marissa is so prominent makes it somewhat unclear to the casual observer as to what the box actually contains.

    I had to do a double take too....

    Including Dr Arkeville in Mp-03 is a cheap stunt. 'Hey look Macross fans, it's really a mecha, not a sentient robot.'

    Noone can claim that isn't G1 Starscream anymore. Comes with frickin Dr. Archeville.

    And I concur, the Kiss packaging is terrible. It doesn't even give you a clear look at the toy with its semi window box. Though it looks like the Melissa pic can be folded up to reveal more of the Convoy through the window.

    The Kiss Players packaging makes my skin crawl.
    However, having seen more (and more detailed) shots of MP Starscream I can honestly say that the colour scheme doesn't bother me at all.

    Starscream as an F-15 looks fantastic. A little darker than I'd like but maybe it'll look paler in hand.

    In bot mode it would probably look fine for me if they got rid of those white lines around the arms and fans and changed the bulk of the torso from blue to red.

    The size comparison with G1 SS looks promising... Though I'd be chuffed if someone tried to do a larger-sized knock off. The "shortness" of him in Bot mode is a bigger gripe to me than the colours or the remolded legs. I guess that's not gonna change any time soon though... I'll get over it.

    Please GOD let the KISS stuff fail horribly so they stop it after 2 or 3 figures (like BT*)... Then they can get back to doing the standard BT figures!

    Steve.

    MP Starscream is hawt, but the jetmode and extra's just sadden me more that he doesn't have G1 colors.

    That first page of Starscream in jet mode (and then followed with the details!) made me have to change my pants, that's all I have to say about him

    I've got no problems with the KISS Play packaging, obviously it was going to be like all the promotional art

    Starscream is starting to grow on me again. That kiss play stuf is just short of hentai. I hope it isn't popular or they may go further.

    You guys are all on crack. It totally does look like G1 Starscream (even if it doesn't have to) in those colors, just toned down. My G1 Starscream is grey, red and blue and that's exactly what that MP SS is. The detailing is sick, it makes MP Prime look like a basic.

    Alternator? He looks like 10 times more complex and detailed than MP Prime.

    I am somewhat scared of Pedo-Convoy there, and the colors on Starscream give me some concern as well...

    Oh well they can't please everyone it seems.

    Folks:

    Hmm. When I see a box with a picture of dried plums, I assume it contains prunes, and am usually right. Likewise, a jar with a picture of pickles usually contains that condiment. Therefore, I feel quite sure that Kiss Convoy's box contains...ASS.
