    I REALLY despise the hip kibble. It's like a kit bash with a MP class Starscream from the waist up, and a Gundam from the waist down. He doesn't match his own body.:horse:

    agreed. still not thrilled with the 'hip kibble' but he's looking pretty regal and spectacular in that shot... as i think of him more as BT Starscream, i'm more OK with the changes.

    Really? Every time I see him on that thing, all I can think of is:
    "You shouldn't hang me on a hook, Johnny. My mother hung me on a hook once... ONCE!"

    I totally agree. Although I think it looks more like a Macross Plus valkyrie from the waist down with the hip kibble and skinny legs. I still think the hip kibble is ugly as sin and I still wish they would release the version 1 prototype, which looks awesome and so much like G1 Starscream (that was the point of the Masterpiece line). I found this pic today at the TBDX forums, don't know if it's been posted aleady somewhere else, but it pretty much describes my feelings towards this toy. No clue if the Kanji matches the Enlish though. Come on Takara, it's still not too late to change back or release both to maximize profits!!!

    As I've mentioned before, the new mold should be used for Starscream & Sunstorm and the old mold should be used for Thundercracker and Skywarp...

    I don't like the waist kibble either. If it stays like this, I'll pass. Not like there's a shortage of other TF stuff to spend money on after all ^^

    Its funny, I have nothing but love for this toy so far. I mean I can understand that some people hate the new look, but I just can't feel it myself when the figure looks this awesome.

    yeah, really the rest of the figure is so staggeringly beautiful, that i think the 'up in arms' over the Hip kibble is a bit overboard. on the other hand, i still can't really see what advantage moving the kibble from the legs to the hips achieved. it really looked better there. but most of the other improvements get a :thumb  from me...

    The old mold doesn't seem to have the hip kibble. It seems to be part of the legs. Am I crazy?

    they really did ruin starsceam. Starscream was never a Samaria and that is what he looks like now. Wish they would give some info on he KISS convoy about the metal for sure.
