    Agreed, that is no Starscream... I thought the idea behind Masterpiece was to make the most flawless version of the CHARACTER possible, not the vehicle they turn into. You didn't see Takara busting their balls to come up with a Masterpiece Convoy that looked exactly like an old Peterbuilt.

    I'll give them this, they got rid of the pinkish shade of red, good, looks better... if it was off white instead of blue, I would probably still get it. But it's freakin' Thundercracker right now, no thanks.

    You know, if they'd even tried to break up the Blue on the robot a little more, it would be twice as acceptable to me. Until then? Forget it.

    I know... you told us so.

    Yeah - the red looks darker, but still UGH!!! They were this close >< to a perfect Starscream and screwed it up.

    Yeah, the blue totally ruined the toy for me. I'm going to pass this up until TakaraTomy gives us an "anime" accurate Starscream.

    Seriously, would it have been too much to lose more blue in bot mode?

    I'm thinking NO... but hey, I'm gonna hold out for Hasbro.

    Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hasbro!

    I'm stickin' by the mental idea it's more BT Starscream than MP (which works since he was the main villian in the BT story) and as such i think it's brilliant. a 99% accurate F-15 that turns into an 85% accurate Starscream? yes please! :D 

    I really have no idea what some people are sniggering about.

    Has a release date been announced besides the ambigous 'September"

    It kinda feels like this piece was started by Takara and finished by TakaraTomy.

    So far, the product offerings from TakaraTomy have left me underwhelmed. I mean, KISS-play: Seriously, WTF?

    Damn I miss the reissue line... and Binaltech... and even the e-Hobby repaints...

    I like it....its not as blue as thundercracker should be. It is Grey, however on the croup's of turning blue. If hid whole jet body were the color of his blue torso, then I would say it is TC.
