Amazing. Will have to get at least a version of this.
Well I'll be damned! That is a very clever, ingenious transformation. I've always wondered how the tailfins collapse. I'm glad I went with this. Now the waiting game til he's released
honestly I'm probably going to end up getting this just because of how cool this engineering is
Thanks for the clarification and the images
Meh. Happy to keep my MP52.
This one, to me, looks cheap and plastic whereas the Mp52 looks like a collectors piece.
However, this one isn't too bad for the price if the transformation isnt a total nightmare
Happy with my MP52, but this looks amazing... So I'm down for the Thundecracker and Skywarp versions assuming they get done!
Yesterday @Magnusfan Nujevad mentioned the hips being behind the chest in alt mode (first post I saw about it at least) so I wondered where the arms went, and tucking into the legs briefly crossed my mind, but honestly I had dismissed it because I didn't think it could be right. Clearly I underestimated them.
There has been a lot of talk about transformation elements coming from the NewAge version, but seeing how the nosecone is taken care of reminds me of the Magic Square engineering. Taking the best parts from past versions and mixing them together is a good plan.
Just to be certain you know, this is noticeably taller than MP-52. Some people have expressed concern about the idea of mixing the two molds with the height difference. I expect we will get a side-by-side shot not too long from now to see it exactly (rather than comparing each to the same figure). If the height difference is okay for you that's great, I just want to make sure you are aware of it going in.
I also have mp-52.
But if this guy is better, i'm buying the trio from deformation. And will be keeping my mp-52 in his box.
Why not just sell it?
Anyway, the transformation on this looks crazy, part of me wants to experience it. Arms collapsing on the legs has got to be a first for a seeker.
hahaha! have you not seen what kind of hoarders we are?
You know....... in case Takara might be bought by FT and MP52 become one of FT's product, the profit could be tremendous.
I've got my Meteor for sale. Probably no one interested in this thread though... lol.
If I can't justify something being on the shelf, I sell it and put it towards something else deserving of the placement.
My husband has hoarder in his blood... I am most certainly not a hoarder by comparison. Don't tell him I said that
... He knows
So, this looking amazing in both modes, plus being IMO a better size... I was just gonna replace my Starscream, but now I'm giving ALL my MT Seekers the side-eye.
Also, I'm cool with Starscream being the biggest, strongest Seeker. It justifies his desire to usurp Megatron.
I want this guy so bad. Here's hoping they stick the landing on qc
Not sure if anyone posted this new comparison shots
small detail but i like how this Starscreams top of the robot mode cockpit curves in towards the neck, whereas MP-52’s plateaus off at the top
even if the price was equal, i'd go with the DS design over TT.
The altmode is a step up from the official, but I think only a small one. Transformation looks good. Arms go in the legs! Why hadnt anybody thought of that before now.
Alt modes: even
Posability: looks pretty even so far. DS has waist swivel; MP52 has better ab crunch.
Bot modes: DS
Actual jet canopy on the chest instead of a fake shell: 50 bonus points to DS.
