    Awesome. Any more Starscream stuff is good as far as I'm concerned.

    The Asian versions of the last couple of Masterpiece figures came with coins (and in MP-9's case, a large paper bag and cardboard display box).

    Seeing as this announcement is from Robotkingdom's FB (Hong Kong based online retailer). It's probably the same case here.

    So, if you've ordered yours from a Japanese source, the coin won't be included.

    I don't need a coin or for Takara to have one more excuse to jack up the price even more. If there continues to be an option to buy Masterpieces without coins, I will continue to exercise it.

    They don't cost anything more. It's only on the Hong Kong version I think [so if you get yours from hlj, amiami etc it's not included].

    "Every Starscream Dollar will be worth five energon cubes. That will be the exchange rate the Bank of Cybertron will set after I've kidnapped their Prime."

    Seriously, these look like they could be actual currency instated by Starscream's incredibly pompous self. XD

    How very not exciting (unless you collect coins I suppose) - just another excuse for Takara's insane pricing of late.

    I find it interesting that they're using the terms "Cybertron" and "Decepticon" on a G1-related item. It might be because Hasbro has a hand in making it, but all the same Takara is pretty gung-ho about using the worldwide names over the old Japanese-exclusive ones lately.

    I got excited because I thought this meant it would come with the coin AND be released as a store exclusive in the US, a la MP Roddy.

    Alas, I am disappoint.

    Why did they use the movie style 'Con symbol on whatever that black cover is?

    Really tempted to get this, just wondering if the actual sale figure will have that lovely sparkly blue for his arms.

    I would take solid, problem free, quality build figure over any of additional unnecessary accessories.
