    YES! No more having to pay through the nose for an anime-accurate Screamer!

    He looks to be more toy accurate than cartoon accurate.

    Awesome. Hopefully he's reasonably priced. Like around $100. I'd love to pay the same I did for acid and sunstorm. The takara is just too much for a flawed mold.

    Hopefully makes it cheaper.

    Nah, nosecone aside it's pretty obviously toon accurate.

    SS looks great. I don't want the coronation set anyways. Keep the costs down for me.

    I can finally get rid of the original SS MP.

    Damn, no coronation set might be a deal breaker for me. Is Hasbro really that cheap? Was hoping to get my first MP Starscream with this release. How affordable are the cape and crown online?

    More upside down logos. I don't care how accurate it is to anything, right side up logos in robot mode looks immensely better in my personal opinion.

    Yay! A Masterpiece Starscream I can probably afford! He will be ordered whenever the hell TRU puts him up (I'm guessing in October).

    I mean, the entire point of US releases is to make them more affordable (with avrrying degrees of success) and easier to aquire, and considering how he only had his coronation gear minutes before dying, I think they felt it was easily droppable if it meant a lower retail price.

    It'd only be "cheap" if they dropped the gear but still charged $200 for it. Dropping accesories to minimize the pricetag isn't being cheap, it's dropping accesories to lower the price tag.

    I hope starscream is just mis-transformed and Hasboro hasn't cheaped out on the wings, but recent figures make me unsure.

    Congratulations to all who waited, they actually didn't fuck up Starscream. Not sure why he needs a blue nosecone, but whatever. I've already had mine, with coronation gear, for over 3 years.

    I have no idea why they keep insisting on including a stand and missiles never designed to go with this version. Especially this time since he has some gear they could substitute.

    Hasbro, up your game. The fact you were asked if you could confirm MP-28 is both hilarious and a wake up call. You aren't in line with fan priorities, which start with MP. Classics is a sideshow that is quickly becoming too much like mainline garbage than the collector focus we used to see.

    The tips of the wings just aren't folded down. You can see the hinge for them is still there.

    If that can help you out, there is a long history of mistransformed Transformers figures used for official pictures! hahaha

    I hear what you are saying but the crown and cape are injection molded solid pieces with no joints or moving parts. In other words they are similar the freebie toys you'd get in a cereal box. Not sure how much money they save by cutting these items that are a priority for collectors.

    Gotta love the official pic for the robot mode of the Hot Spot repaint (Pyra Magna), one leg's knee is correctly transformed and the other isn't.

    Yes I need Starscream, all I have is Sunstorm and Acid Storm in this mold. I need more cons.
