Yeah, that alone really makes it a worthwhile upgrade, imo. Even if you do keep MP-3.

If/when they release a Skywarp repaint, Ill definitely be picking it up as well. Extremely happy with this figure.
I hope they do Thundercracker first, but yeah, I'll take both.

Had mine for a few days.

Besides the new null rays which I find fiddly to transform and pose around, the rest isn't bad. Not entirely an improvement over the old mould [I said mould, not any colourscheme], yet something different.

Legs do sacrifice ankle articulation [cleverly implement on the old mould] but they are somewhat more stable. The rest of the figure, even at different parts, has exactly the same articulation as before.

Coronation set is not too bad, cape works best of all new parts, crown just sits there with no tabs, just gravity. The shoulder pauldrons are awful in that they do not work as well as I thought with the null rays in the way.

Looking forward to Sunstorm and whoever else they make using this...

Actually the sides of his head push in, which allows the crown to fit more securely.

Got might last night but haven't had much time to mess with it. Maybe tonight.

Mine arrived today from BBTS.

I have the previous Takara release, and I like this one much, much better. The transformation was very similar, if not slightly easier - I particularly like the way the null rays don't come off. I know some folks aren't a fan of this, but in my case - I'm less likely to lose something!

Glad to see the hip kibble is gone.

Two of the things that really stood out to me once I got him out of the box was the new head mold and the blue paint. The new head is, to me, miles and away better than the previous version, a much better representation of the cartoon Starscream, and the blue paint has a very nice metallic hue to it.

I can safely say this is the Starscream toy I've always wanted.

It's almost as if MP3 came with a stand because the designers knew MP3 was a PITA to stand in bot mode. MP11 can stand just fine unassisted.
I can't wait Mine is preparing for shipment from HLJ, might be awhile until I get it though since I went with SAL

It's too bad about the stand since it was cool displaying the jet on it and putting him in flight poses but honestly I wouldn't have displayed him with it anyway now that he can stand.

Me to, mine vanished into the ether Tuesday. Won't have any other info until I see on my door step. It said 7-45 days so I'm hoping to have one of those 7 day experiences rather than the 45 day ones.
