    Hands aren't painted nor are the intakes. Seems about right for a Hasbro release. Deco is pretty spot on otherwise IMHO.

    Sure. Most TRU MP releases don't have preorders, they just go up one day. They did have a Devastator preorder, so maybe it will change.

    Thanks for the clarification, I didn't think the hands would be painted since they move so much.

    Did same research and scouting around the old threads and found this-
    2012 MP-11 Takara Masterpiece Coronation
    with the 2007 Hasbro Exclusive Starscream
    So this would be Hasbro's Mp-11 mold final following the deco color mold the Takara MP 2012.
    Comparison's from the (3) MP-11 Starscreams showing i see the biggest difference with the pointed wing tip that the other 2 molds don't have.
    Note- I am a newbie ^_^ so don't yell at me plzzz

    Hasbro just mistransformed it by flipping up the aileron/flaps on SScreamer-2015.

    Man I love Hasbro's baby blue obsession.

    This is my favorite MP-11 Deco so far. HasbroAsia Skywarp a close second. And I know it doesn't make sense but the rumored Powder Blue Takara Thundercracker would be third.

    Although I love the colours, I'm gonna have to end passing on this.

    I'm not a fan the MP Seeker mold; really dislike how the chest cockpit doesn't sit flush with the red side chest pieces, so they end up looking a bit deformed or very slouched in robot mode.

    Also the Seekers have the ugliest looking feet I have ever seen on a transformers. Unless it's an MP10 remold, I'm not too excited about MP's these days.

    I wonder if they managed to tighten up the torso connection so it doesn't slide as easily. It got better and better with TC, Acid Storm, and then Sunstorm...you can hold them up by the intakes and nothing moves.

    The pointed wing issue is just Hasbro photographer mistransforming their product photos, as usual.

    Great comparison pics, though. Thanks! :thumb 

    I agree. My TC was loose as hell, AS better but still wobbly, while Sunstrom was tight. IIRC, someone posted previously that by Sunstorm's release, they were using revised molds and not the same molds as the were during the original MP-11

    I absolutely (heart) the bright red against the baby blue of this release. Really hoping the final product turns out this way and thta I can get one.

    I completely agree, i hate it when they have the upside down insignias on the seekers. I erased the insignias on my Takara Starscream and put Reprolabels the right side up. I also did the trick to remove the paint from the nose cone to make it the original molded blue color just like the Hasbro MP-3 G1 Colors Starscream. So really my Starscream at the moment looks practically identical to this upcoming one except for the upside down insignias. If its not too expensive i may pick it up as i tend to collect the F-15 Starscreams.

    Definitely getting Starcream in October. Looks like you get everything that came with TC in 2012. Display stand (can't get mine to work with TC in jet mode) Missiles (that I probably will keep in the box). I am guessing a gun clip as well. I missed the original Takara release of this or I probably would have gotten it then, but as of right now I'm kind of glad I did.

    Before I even watch it I'll ask, are the main differences the info stamp on the foot and more opaque windows?

    Upside down in bot mode is not only cartoon accurate, but also accurate to how real jets place logos on their wings.

    If you place the logos the other way, you are wrong.

    Come on now. What if he doesn't care about slavish cartoon accuracy (which was never consistant anyway) or how "real" human jets would have their logos. And with all due respect, do you really think Megatron and the Decepticons give a shit in what directional orientation the puny flesh creatures place the logos on their pathetic war planes? :)
