    I wonder how many repaints this mold will end up getting.

    Yaaaaawn if MP

    Call me when someone makes better Voyager scaled ones. The fact a Habsro release without knees is still the best scaled Starscream is slightly laughable

    I'll be honest, my Masterpiece V2 Starscream is pretty good, HOWEVER when a company I like as much as MakeToys says they want to do their version, I bet it will be better. Better possibility, paint apps, etc. I will probably end up getting this.

    Also, if they use this mold as a base to do Coneheads... Oh man, top of my Masterpiece Devepticon want list. Bring it on!

    I hope the torso holds together better than the official MP. And, of course, I hope it's just a tad shorter than their MP Megatron

    If this mold is better than the mp-11 one, it lives up to expectations, and it not all that expensive ($80-$100), they could milk this mold super hard. The Starscream squadron, The Coneheads, The Welcoming Committee, and The Rain Makers. It could go far cause we all know if it's good, people will keep eating more of it.

    Agreed^^ I know I'm not the only Seeker fan who prefers the MP Seekers to smaller versions.
    I do hope that it's the same height as the MP03/11 mold though. To me that's the perfect Seeker size^^

    Also that Sunstorm and the newly named Nova Storm are not similarly colored.

    Two things, aside from the standard "matches MP aesthetic" factor, will decide this for me:

    1. Price- I already have Hasbro Thundercracker, and with Screamer coming out in a few months, these need to be pretty cheap to get me to bite and sell off Thundercracker.

    2. Altmode- the official mold, old version or new, has the single sexiest plane mode of any transformer I've ever seen, and they'll need to work pretty hard to win me over in that department.

    this has got me quite excited ..... love my mp11 seekers and igear seekers but the bot modes could be improved on , feet , waist articulation and the torso being loose , face sculpt could be better would be nice to have a sculpt that fits the cartoon more

    if they smash this i'm all in , love me some seekers :D 



    i bet everything and coneheads

    I got the new Thundercracker when he first came out. Only paid 45 for him on eBay. But I am with you. The Prices for Starscream and Skywarp are a rip off. I have both in the first mold I got cheap from Walmart. But if these are within the MP Size, and look good, I will get them in a blink of an eye. I hate the Old Mold.

    Best Regards,

    Honesty, not everyone has your view on the coneheads. Sorry to say. I owned them, and sold them. They are junk. Floppy, can't stand them or pose them. ECT.

    I would love a GOOD set of Coneheads.

    Best Regards,

    Again. Wrong. They are in line with the correct scale. Least the scale that people say is correct. I don't find them too short when standing next to my other MP's. I just don't like the old molds, or the prices for the new molds.

    Best Regards,

    Starscream to Howling Meteor...really now. Heh.

    Anyways, kinda weird doing MP seekers of any of the main three. MT would be better off doing the no name seekers.

    If this really trumps the MP-11 mold, I'll jump ship since I only have the Thundercracker version so far.
