    Oh Sweet Munky Primus!

    That is Gorgeous!

    How can these guys get this figure colored so right when they painted MP03 Starscream so wrong?

    MP Starscream wasnt colored wrong

    he was just colored in realistic jet colors instead of bright and hokey anime colors
    [not like they probably wont release a repaint down the road anyway]



    but anyways
    megs looks gorgeous!

    Sweet, glad they put the faction symbol on his chest and not the gunlettering.

    Very few, if any quibbles with this. :thumb

    I don't know... I just don't like it. The body shape seems off and the silver looks awfully tacky.
    Sorry.

    could be hand-painted

    accounting for the "tacky"-ness

    *shrug*

    I'm sorry Josh, but it's a matter of opinion (that I happen to share) to some folks that MP Starscream should have been done in G1 colors.

    I'm in agreement with Josh on this one. Low-vis colors over circus colors any day of the week for me. IMHO of course.

    EDIT: Also, there are silver guns in real life but I don't think there are any off-white, red and light blue F-15s outside of those used for air shows.

    Hmmm, not bad, not great.

    Does anyone know how I can enlarge the bottom 2 pics, or can post links to larger ones?

    I think it's primarily the face, and the cheap colours + semi painted finish on the torso panel that let it down for me. Looks a little more amatuerish than was anticipating.

    Prime looks better, paint wise.

    Need to see pics in brighter/more natural light I think. Hopefully, more are on the way.

    Oooh, Shiney!

    I hope there's enough articulation in the arms to compensate for the extra wide chest.

    Same here IMHO. I'll take those realistic, awesome colors on MP-03 over the gaudy, anime colors anyday of the week. The hip kibble and the choice of plastic are another story though.

    As for Megs. Oh, hot damn! I'm definitely getting one of these bad boys.
