    Hasbro really dropped the ball on this one just a crap repaint job of Starscream. They could've at least used Skywarp's alternate face. No thanks, I'll stick with Takara when it comes to MPs, even if it does cost an arm and three legs.

    ?? It's the most G1-accurate MP seeker so far---that makes it the best one so far.

    Seems that they did use the Starscream face mold though, instead of Skywarp's.

    It's cool, and affordable, not to mention easy to find.

    Should've gone with Sunstorm instead...now that would've been awesome.
    Maybe I'll get this for my brother, or myself. MP U.S. Starscream is one of my all-time favorite TFs, and the toy looks awesome in black...

    Supposed to released in November. The Hasbro version is cheaper, but may be harder to find as it is a Walmart exclusive and not all Walmarts carry exclusives.

    The face isn't that huge of a deal to me, as I don't use the "expression faces" on my Seekers anyways. I'm looking forward to Skywarp :)

    I'm looking forward to this, having passed on the Japanese version. Still hoping for a stateside MP Grimlock release. Maybe if this sells well enough.

    VERY nice. I'm glad they ditched the "squeezing one out on the loo" face too.

    Left out all the really nice detailing on the jet mode from the Takara release.

    I have the Takara release, which I'll display in jet mode, this one in robot mode behind it.
