    Which version of the MP seeker mold do you prefer?

    The original MP seeker mold?

    The newly improved MP seeker mold? with all the differently sculpted parts.

    I like the original MP seeker molds best. I love the long thin side arm missles launches because they look like Sword blades. Love the wings waist kibble because it gives the toy a samurai look. didn't mind the rounded off feet as it looked very new age. The older head looks less friendly which is good as it's a bad guy.

    Some parts on the newly improved seeker mold look weird. the new feet don't match the mold design aesthetics. the newer side arm missle launches are too blocky. The waist plate looks like it was a rush job type re-design. The newer head doesn't look that bad. I like the eyes but the face smile looks too friendly for a decepticon to sport.

    Both have their pluses and minuses. I only own the mp-3 mold, but it seems from reviews that they remedied the biggest flaw with the first mold: fragility. I already spent more than I was comfortable with the mp-3 mold, so I won't be splurging for mp-11 mold. I do wish that for the money I spent, that the figure would be more durable. I like transform my mps. I rarely touch my megs, and starscream comes in second on the frequency count.

    The MP-11 mold is an improved version of the original Masterpiece mold.

    Also know as the original prototype version before it was messed with, thereby making it (MP-11) the actual original MP Seeker mold.

    I like the MP-11 version because it is less fragile, more stable and the head sculpt is much more cartoon accurate. However, I do like certain things about the MP-03 mold and as much flaming as I am going to get for saying this, the iGear version of the MP Seekers is pretty great too. I would rank it a very close second behind MP-11 and far ahead of MP-03. Moving the tail fins back to the legs as originally intended greatly improved the MP-03 mold.

    I prefer MP03 but with the tailfin mod so he can be posed perfectly.

    if you like to parts form the wings after a while, go for the mp-03 mold, they'll all break eventually. mp-11 by a mile, can't wait to get thundercracker and hopefully skywarp from it too. then retire the mp-3 molds to plane mode forever more

    I chose the third. Both have strengths and weaknesses that cancel each other out.

    MP11 by a long shot. MP3 with the hip kibble on, looks like an incomplete transformation. Also not a fan of the arm pad.

    Don't care, but that's because they're both Starscreamy goodness.

    MP-11 is leaps an bounds better then the -03 mold. The only disappointments for me were all the missing accessories such as the stand an base, the missle rack, an the clip for the mini Meg's.

    New mold for me,loved it from the moment i had it in my hands :)  Yes it has it's flaws but overall it's just a beautiful show accurate seeker mold.Never had the old mold but the hip kibble on it looked horrible and it couldn't even stand properly from what i heard.

    MP-11. Never liked the hip, shoulder or arm kibble on mp03 (even a mate who doesnt really know tranformers picked up on the changes) and after my greenscream's wing hinges cracked badly, I never really dared transform skywarp, hasbro starscream or thundercracker.

    That said, I do think mp11s feet look too blocky and leave him standing awkwardly. It's a bit of a shame they didn't keep the mp03 legs for a sleeker jet mode and better stance in robot mode, and just alter the tail fins.

    mp-3 was my first toy as an adult. i love greenscream for getting me back into tf's.

    that said, mp-11 is a much more playable toy and a better robot. mp3 is a better jet.

    MP-11 is much, much better. It uses the F-15C as a base aircraft model, rather than the F-15E. And the F-15E with it's conformal fuel tanks adds too much bulk for my taste. Plus the head on the MP-11 is far superior, IMO.

    I really hated all the hip kibble on the original mold and wouldn't buy any of the seekers because of it. I was thrilled when they released the improved mold.
