    If so, can anyone confirm the differences? I saw pics, but I was wondering if there was a detailed review. Thx!

    Just seen it myself at a few local toyshops here in s'pore. yup it's true then from what i've seen with my own eyes it's definitely the clean version & it has a blue nosecone too.

    Just to be sure i even asked the shop-owner what's the difference. he said it has less wheathering & it's the cleaner version...but don't take my word for it yet. i didn't buy it b'coz i already have the Hasbro one.

    Wait till someone else on this board have it, then you'll get a more definite answer. dat's all.

    Oh you're joking! And I've just gone and bought the Hasbro "carbon scored" version...

    :banghead: 

    Well, I ain't buying two screamers...suppose I could sell this one...sigh.

    Ah what the hell I still love him, carbon scoring and all.

    Personly I like the Hasbro version of SS and Prime for that matter. The damage/carbon on the toys give them a more realistic and battlehardend look.

    Yup me too. looks more realistic that way & also i dun dig that blue nosecone that much. (even if it's so-called anime accurate)

    I've seen quite a few galleries/collections of fellow collectors on this website & several others who did that. the blue-greenish color scheme of the 1st MP-Starscream makes it suitable as a Thundercracker.
