    You just beat me to this - do we have any idea if the final product has changed since the first initial pics? I'm still smarting over Lightnings (Thundercracker)'s grey thighs goddamnit.

    Honestly, I haven't been following "Traitor's" progress (I've been mulling over the new MP Starscream :D ), but iGear's website does show colored pics. I'm thinking it should be what the toy actually looks like. However, what's turning me off to this one is the blue exhaust ports and the (yet again) lack of any paint apps on the tail fin. But....I guess it had to be G1 accurate to a degree.

    So essentially this is MP-11 without the coronation set, right? Worth considering if you're looking for a cheaper version, but there are some niggly colour discrepancies like the blue exhausts and the missing upside-down insignias. Hope this will be fixed before release.

    Well, I wouldn't compare this to MP-11 as there are enough differences in the design to differentiate MP-11 from iGear's Traitor (The wings for example that allow TT to not have that stupid annoying piece by the intake ports).

    It looks kinda weird. And with MP-11 coming out, there's no way I'd get this instead.

    I'm still on the fence with this one. I kind of want to get it to keep consistency with my IGear coneheads. I'm still getting MP-11 regardless.

    That is a pretty Starscream. I may get it if it hangs around for a while so that I can afford it.

    I don't know what the odds are of getting a Hasbro Starscream release so I may go iGear. The new Takara prices on MPs are starting to match 3rd party prices lol

    I'll give this figure a big hell no

    It's 100 plus shipping? Why not spend the extra 40 to 50 bucks and get the official SCREAMER!

    (Or as everyone likes to say, wait for the 70-90 dollar hasbro release)

    Yeah, but the hasbro release may not come with the coronation set. I'd rather have MP-11.......

    I'm debating on getting that one Chris, even though I just spent a stupid amount to get the tak thundercracker. That starscream does wonders for me I just don't care for the cape and stuff

    I just don't really see the need for this screamer. I can understand Thundercracker because the MP's price has just skyrocketed over the past couple of years. Still, IGEAR made some funky changes to TC; changes that made me completely pass on the figure. I wonder if this Screamer is gonna have some weird, last minute change too.

    For Starscream, he isn't cartoon accurate and it looks like they are using the Hasbro colors. Not to say it's an ugly screamer in the least, but you can get the Hasbro version for 60-80 bucks NOW.

    Yep, I've already got MP-11 on preorder with edbomber.com:thumbs2:

    At it's most base levels yes. MP-11 has a ton of new parts, new accessories, and more accurate color scheme while iGear's is just a tweaked Walmart MP Starscream.

    60 - 80? Where? Everywhere I look, its at least $100 still if not more. Not just on ebay mind you....I've looked at a few online stores too. Unless its a fellow board member, then that I can see.

    I didn't really pay attention to their TC though, but what did they do last minute?
