    No he's not. He's definitely grey in the animation, and the majority of G1 Starscream-based toys are also grey. The only times he's been white are the Hasbro/USA Edition MP-3 and the Universe release of the Classics mold.

    Unless you're biased towards the Marvel Comics depictions of him, in which case that's a limitation of the 3-colour printing of the era. His light grey colour couldn't be reproduced there.

    Eh another one of those interpretation things. In the cartoon he was either light grey or white. I prefer the grey myself.

    If we get a white version I would hope its specifically the G2 deco instead with the neon orange bits and camo wing detail n whatnot.

    This is a long awaited release to replace the ageing MP-11.

    With Takara Megatron and Shockwave as super toon accurate, hopefully Maketoys Starscream could fit the bill. MP-13 Soundwave seems like a good toon and modern hybrid like Fanstoys so we won't expect a new take on Soundwave.

    Is there a MT rep on the boards that can post about some updates?

    That would make my day... Pictures, an ETA, hell, just confirmation that this is still coming and if it's this year! But I think if they had updates we would have seen them already :/

    Didn't he chip in in the previous page saying that this was definitely still happening?

    I don't think he's an official MT rep, but he used to own Ages Three and Up, so I think he's retained some of his industry contacts.

    I assume Spence is affiliated with MT as someone commented that they hoped his designers would go down the Downbeat route with this figure.

    Where is this figure. I will have all the Takara seekers once Dirdge arrives and might keep them in jet mode if this is as good as I hope. I need a kibble free seeker already.

    MT officially has this product listed on their site now so he's definitely still happening just very much still being worked on behind closed doors is all. I would assume he'll get revealed proper whenever they're comfortable with showing off his prototype. After them having to modify both Despo and Downbeat to fit with the complaints of fans I would assume they're being more careful to get the design to a point where they believe their will be minimal backlash for a character such as this.

    And yeah Spence works for MT and FP as a rep of sorts so he usually has the inside word on the status of various projects they're working on that he happens to be privy to. But don't go buggin the man hoping for hot scoops or nothing lol, like me n mmc he can only talk about what he's allowed to I'm sure. :)

    I never tire of hearing that these are still happening. It's crazy to think that my main Decepticon force will be comprised of Maketoys' efforts despite there being Takara options. Don't ever change, MT!
