    Aww what the packaging is the same too!? Wow that is such a let down for me, I wanted to order it so it'll look good with my other Masterpieces too. Aye oh well.

    I'll stick with the Hasbro.

    After all the hubub about Takara's version being free of 'battle damage', this is gonna be a disappointment to anyone who pre-ordered it thinking it'll look cleaner than Hasbro's version.

    Guess this also officially kills the rumor we heard months ago that MP-07 would be a re-release of Starscream with the G1 repaint (the rumor that circulated before the MP Grimlock rumor, that is). If that ever was an idea actually being considered, it looks to be squashed in place of just using the Hasbro version instead. Can't say I blame them either.

    Well damn, I was holding back for the Takara version, as I was hoping it wouldn't have the battle damage. Looks like I'll get the US version after all.

    That blows. I wanted MP packaging. Glad I didn't pre-order, though.

    Pretty sure the only noticable difference is Takara SS has a Decepticon logo on the nose cone and the US one does not.

    Well, IMO it wouldn't be a true 'US Version' if it was noticeably different than the actual US Version... :)

    So it's not going to be considered MP-07?
    I guess that's a good thing.

    I'm not sure why anyone would be surprised that this MP Starscream is the exact same thing we got here in the US. The USA Editions have always been the US released figures with stickers slapped on the package to indicate such.

    Oh well, I'm sure there will something to give people a reason to love it 10 fold over that of the Hasbro release.

    Well it was pretty clear a while back that there would be little or no difference between the Takara version and the Wallmart MP Starscream. I'm glad I canceled my pre-order at HLJ and got a friend in the US to ship me one. However I did find the US paint job lacking in more areas than just the weathering, I wonder if (although it looks identical aside from the Con insignia on the nose) Takara did a better quality job?

    Yours AK

    It's not that we didn't see it coming. Hence, not pre-ordering it. It's just some of us held out hope.
