    So which starscream, in your personal opinion, is better? I know two aren't released, but from press photos. There's the Kibble hip screamer, MP-11 which looks like he can't rotate his feet, which means harder posing, or the PP03T which isn't black washed/panel lined. Which one do you guys prefer?

    I would have done a poll if I knew how haha. And here is an image of PP03T

    MP 11 can rotate his legs though:

    I prefer MP-11 even though I have the initial Hasbro MP Starscream :)

    I think he means MP-11 has no ankle tilt or swivel, meaning his feet don't look like they're able to sit flush/flat with the ground when his legs are posed slightly apart. The old MP Seeker molds do have feet with ankle tilt/swivel, and presumably so will PP03T who's based on the original MP mold save for the hip kibble leg mods (and possibly the wrist communicators).

    As for which is best? That depends on what you want out of these figures.

    If you're going to collect them all, Coneheads included, it'd be nice to have all your Seekers with a similarly uniform appearance, so iGear's PP03 line is good for that. Not to mention price since they're cheaper than the real deal, and a chance to get an affordable Thundercracker.

    But if you're a diehard Starscream fan who's anal about color accuracy, MP-11's probably your best best and if you don't mind spending the extra cash for import fees and his coronation accessories. New official versions of Skywarp or Thundercracker are just rumors at this point, and depend on how well MP-11 sells.

    Personally, I already have MP-03 Greenscream and the Takara version of the white Walmart G1-colors deco of MP Starscream (along with MP-06 Skywarp and MP07 Thundercracker). I'm fairly happy with both of them but will probably wait for reviews of MP-11 to come in to see if he's worth picking up. The seeming lack of ankle tilt/swivels is troubling and I wouldn't like his feet angled off the ground with his legs posed apart. I'm in no rush to get new Seeker molds, to be quite honest. I'm more interested in iGear's Coneheads if anything else since HasTak flat out refuses to make MP versions of them.

    Actually....a prototype pic shows it might have the swivel feature (the one on the right.....left foot):

    Prototype doesn't equal MP-11. They're similar, sure, but there are some slight differences with the molds (the prototype lacks the new heel spur pieces on MP-11, for example). I'll wait until the reviews are in first before anything. I have no fears he'll be sold out or anything given that MP-10 stock is still healthy by the look of things.

    this^^^ sold my original mp screamer as i am getting this

    as for feet movement i think it is there but not being shown in the color prototype pics we have seen..

    i find mp11 looks more cartoon accurate and the jet mode looks a bit more like the f-15 without the kibble bit at the sides of the jet so win win :D

    True....they could make changes. But it'd be kinda dumb not to have the swivel on it I think. I'll do the same and wait for reviews :)  I'm just hoping they don't sell out before the reviews are up :D

    pp03 has a blue cone and blue thrusters making him more accurate color wise.

    I'm considering pp03 because of the feet and color accuracy. I'll get vinyl stencils t fix my only issue...faction symbols. If it weren't for the feet I'd reconsider.
