    Although I like BC's Warpath, I'm ready to see what TT can do with the figure. If they are serious about tackling all of the Mini-Bots, it'll be great to see what direction they will take considering the increased budget will put Warpath far ahead of Bumblebee. They can hold off on Powerglide for a while. DX9's Powerglide is a very nice figure. Also while I'm at it, Huffer may as well be their second Mini-Bot since they did design one to be a MP/accessory to pull Prime's trailer.

    This.

    Mp12+ is on his way with his brother. But for all the reasons stated above and elsewhere, MP12 isn't gping anywhere.

    Damn it, damn it, damn it! I just ordered Loudpedal... and I'm not even drunk!!! :D 

    I blame MP-10B, PayPal Credit, and drunk mcart for pushing me over the edge. ;)

    I'm having a fair amount of difficulty getting anyone interested in buying my Takara Masterpiece MP-11 Coronation Starscream. Have the reissues of this figure and the Hasbro version totally killed the demand for it at the standard 120 GBP-ish price?

    By contrast, Star Saber sold within seconds and I still have people asking me if it's available.

    All the best

    Not sure if people have become disenchanted with the MP-11 mold in general or holding off for news of an updated seeker mold because we're talking about a mold that's #3 in the initial Masterpiece line. I wish I had an answer that makes sense but I don't. You've made us aware that you're offloading for various reasons, but wasn't Coronation Starscream on the "save from a fire list" at one point? What changed with hs status?

    He really was on that list since I got him in 2013...but then MakeToys MTRM Meteor happened and it was so much more the Starscream I wanted, even without the Coronation gear. Plus it's as you say, I have a sneaking suspicion we'll see an updated Starscream before too long.

    I got a ko from him once - he was really good with that purchase and helpful when questioned, it arrived fairly quickly too. Only got a Ko as couldnt find original anywhere

    120 gbp? Seems a lot for a second hand release of a mould you can get new for not much more, and has had quite a number of re-releases. Especially as there was a recent article ;)  saying that a number of masterpieces havent held up well over time, being transformed back and forth and posed a lot... I'd either lower the price or hang on to it.

    The prospect of another seeker mould fills me with dread. Luckily for me that there is no other option - i really d9nt like Howling Meteor, at all.


    I still need to get Red Boby and loudpedal - but have spent too much recently!

    Interestingly none of my MP seekers are showing the kind of paint wear or looseness that the more recent releases have, but in a way that's no real achievement as a number of them have had their own looseness issues straight out of the box. Thrust getting more floppy is a horrible proposition.

    Also keep in mind when you convert UK prices it will always seem expensive compared to USD prices. Usually retailers in the UK charge the same with just the currency symbol replaced.

    My price also includes international shipping to the UK from Iceland.

    Thats cool an all, but Im not converting currency as I live in the uk, but still seems a little steep - i recently, well, about a year ago, got my Starscream mould from Kapow when the re-issue was released and recall it being £129.99 hence why i thought even with shipping included may be a tad much - also could be the increased amount of Ko's around.

    Been lucky with all my seekers so far-no issues to report, in fact, nearly all my pieces have been great except Star Sabre's left arm has become loose and just hangs there, and Mp9 (first edition) cant hold his guns that well.

    Waiting in for delivery of Sunstreaker and the cassettes! But i also need to go out as well! Argh

    Ah I see, in that case maybe you're right and I just need to reduce the price. I was actually offering it for 100 plus shipping originally but I have just found that shipping inclusive prices tend to work better.

    MP-9 struggles to hold his guns for me as well, incredibly so. Any of my pcis where you see my TT MP-9 holding the targetmaster Offshoot, just know that it took AGES to get it to stay!

    Thanks Maz - means a lot from you! I might even break out the light-tent this evening as this fella is so damned photogenic... Well, as long as that chin doesn't catch the light too much. ;-)

    My season 1 bots are all in car mode ready for a vehicle mode shoot so I've not yet held him next to Sideswipe but Christ, he looks perfect next to Tracks.
