Thanks to AcToys.net.
Love how the back of Starscream's box has a real F15 pictured on the back, but it's a silhouette so you can't really figure out the color.
Not really impressed with either, but I do hope that perhaps the trailer will be sold seperately and that Starcream will later appear color accurate.
That's about what I expected, being in line with the first 2 MP releases.
Both are pretty great, prime moreso if you never got MP01.
You know, I really want to like that starscream, I just cant bring myself to do it. Im glad I cancelled my preorder.
that MP04 makes me want to get it just to keep it MISB.
I have a quick comment:
Without mentioning my feelings for the current MP-03 mold and colors, I think it's REALLY low to put that picture of Starscream on the cover. I've always thought that picture was fishy, because the hip kibble HAS BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED OUT.
It's one thing to have hip kibble, but I just think this is misleading.
The kibble is there but it's folded as far back as possible and the view is obstructed by his left arm and wing, as well as the angle of that pic.
These are awesome!
Can't wait to get both of them.
That looks to me like it was photoshopped out (which I never realized before). The angle is high yes, but there is no way that the entire hip kibble is obscured by the wing and arm. The kibble looks like it was cut off and rounded off instead of continuing back and down like in other pics. Either way, that isn't the best picture they could have used for MPSS, but at least the packaging matches MP-01 and 02, so that is good.
just realized on Starscream, while i wasn't excited about haveing to put stickers on a $100 figure, if the big symbols aren't applied, we can put them on "right" so they're not upside down in bot mode!!! nice.
I agree that it looks like it was photoshopped. The kibble is just too big to be hidden. Also, you should be able to see the tailfins that are on the kibble and they aren't visible at all on that photo.
We need better
These pics are to ambiguous, would really like to see some clear high quality pics before i drop the loot to get this
I don't think there was any photoshopping, just very particular camera angles. But yeah, I snickered at the way the hipwings were kept out of the limelight on the front of the box.
That was the first thing that I thought when I saw the stickers. I definitely will be putting them on the "right" way (and that saves me a few bucks w/ reprolabels, so that is good).
So this releases tomorrow in Japan right (Weds to us)? I just want BBTS to get their shipment in and then send me mine.
Man, how can anyone still be bashing SS.
This may be the single most detailed and accurate alt mode ever.
Yeah, he's got a little too much kibble in bot mode.
I'm sure it's removable somehow if it's really that big of a problem
Yeah, his colors aren't cartoon accurate.
Red, Light Grey and Blue aren't really much of a disguise anyway
Yeah, he's not as tall as MP1.
So what. Is that really going to be a deal breaker?
Plus, he comes with Dr. Archeville!
BBTS can't get this guy to me quick enough.
I think it's because the main selling point with Masterpieces was they they are not only incredibly detailed in alt form, but ALSO look exactly like their cartoon image in robot form. At least that's the groundwork they laid for MP Prime... and MP Starscream at first. It's a nice gesture that the jet looks real, but if you're spending over $100 on a MP Starscream, you want a Starscream that has the Starscream colors, regardless if they look kind of silly in real life. I'm still buying one, but like most people I'm a little letdown that he doesn't look the way he should. Prime - they got it bang on. Starscream - they dropped the ball. And what's worse is that Takara *know* they did but are still doing it anyway, likely waiting to capatlize on the pending sales of repaints for the next two years.
Those are lookin sweet!
#1: Love the boxes
#2: Somebody has some serious balls to put a pic of the more accurate G1 Starscream boxart on the package.
#3: Is anybody feeling ripped off after buying the first MP Prime when it came out, then seeing this box? "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings"
