    I was wondering what the general opinion is of this figure. I own a TT MP-11 (with its floppy chest) and I still like this figure despite of its flaws. Now I am presented with the chance of buying Starscream's Ghost with a small discount and I am wondering if it is a solid character (compared to MP11 for example).

    It looks cool enough, light shines through the clear blue really well and it displays well. Ultimately though it is the MP03 mold and therefore comes with all the MP03 mold's inherent problems. If you're only used to the MP11 mold (even with its own problems) you might be left a little cold.

    I bought mine way back when it was the cheapest way to get an MP Starscream (well before MP11) and I loved it when I had him, but once I got the MP11 Seekers he slowly slipped into the background until now. He's no longer displayed on my MP shelf because he doesn't match the aesthetics of MP10+.

    Clear plastic plus tolerance issues on the hinged wing panels on the back.

    It doesnt withstand repeated transformation imo.

    Plus a clear version of the MP11 mold seems likely?

    Well, it's of the older MP03 mold, so you get the inferior bot mode. I'd say over all it's pretty meh. If you can get it for a good price why not, otherswise you'd have to really love Starscream to want that. Heck, Starscream is my favoirite Decepticon and I passed on the ghost figure.

    Bide your time. Like most characters and variants in this toy line, it won't be long before a better version is released.

    I love the MP-3 mold and I really love ghost starscream. Here's a couple of photos I took just recently of it.

    I have had it since release and it's been transformed plenty of times. You do have to be a bit careful with it but the same goes for other versions of the mold.

    The jet mode for MP-3 looks lovely and is way better than the MP-11 version though the bot mode is not quite as good. I personally like both and keep both in my collection.

    Thanks guys for your feedback! Reading the reviews and seeing the pictures is going to make it difficult to resist him; especially when I can get him for under 100 dollars (new/unopened) including shipping. I have all the three seekers now and I will be waiting for the cone heads. I am secretly hoping that Starscream's Ghost will nicely complement my Decepticon armada. Decisions, decisions, decisions....

    My kind of thread. :D 

    Although I don't own a MP Starscream, I love the look of the ghost edition as I like clear plastic TFs.

    I have it, I really like it but I prefer the old MP Starscream mold to the MP-11 one. I'd say over time watch out the hinges on the wings, but that can be said about any version of the mold, MP-3 or MP-11. I haven't had any issues with mine but over time the clear plastic may be problematic. It's an absolute steal if you can indeed get it less than $100.
