    It's a very important articulation point though. We aren't talking about fingers or elbows/knees past the 90 here. Maybe It's fine for those who don't pose their figures a lot. It bothers me enough that IF it turns out not to have one I don't want it. I mean it's barely acceptable on a 30$ voyager, but this is a $200+ Masterpiece.

    Some people will justify anything to ride Takaras painted pony. Like the horribly LAZY Arcee they recently unleashed on the fandom. Basically a refined copy of T30 Arcee right down to the headscuplt! Lots of clever "design choices" coming from them lately...SMH.

    All MPs now carry the Long Life Design designation:

    The Long Life Design Award has been developed for many years through dialogue with manufacturers and users, and society, and is an award for honoring designs that will become the cornerstone of living and society and that are desired to continue to play the role in the future and designs with the power to continue to be a standard beyond value that changes with the times.

    That's a lot of fancy words for designs that include a figure with grandmother chest and a figure with no waist swivel.

    Will this version come with the choking head? I've looked at several sites and the promo images are just from the first version.

    I would hope so, it's an amazing accessory that should come with every starscream. I believe the downbeat reissue came with all the same accessories as the original, so maybe there is hope.

    Would love EX Skywarp and Thundercracker. Love Meteor enough to put off the MP-52 and would probably put off the other two if they get reissued

    They have a shipping confirmation for him, so two weeks-ish? If anyone has him ordered, I’m curious.

    Terrific news.
    Nothing heard from TFS (UK) yet, but they usually wait until they’re almost ready to ship out before posting something to Facebook

    FINALLY THANK GOD

    Can't wait to finally have Meteor, haha. Getting this alongside my MP-52s for...

    uh...

    Y'know I don't think I ever had a reason why...

    Either way, hopefully TCP's shipment follows suit soon.

    BTW I was gonna post this sooner but I couldn't find a source for this. More faces? Pretty sure this is likely official as the ones that were solicited also appear here.

    If this means we're getting more, i'm in. I guess we'll just have to see what happens as time passes by.

    I own the original Meteor, but am interested in seeing just how much of an improvement (if at all) this model is because I’ll likely be buying the Lightning and Skycrow reissues.

    MakeToys has been awful about this exact sort of thing but you’d think that they’d at least release side-by-side images to convince existing owners to buy the new one... Unless they’re so similar that doing so would prevent you from buying it.

    So is he coming with the choking piece? Was able to snag his Megatron counterpart earlier.

    Man, he's about to release? I was hoping to have a little more time to come up with the coin for him. I just ordered IT-01 Emperor of Destruction and was hoping to use this and some form of Soundwave for the big 3 of the Decepticons.

    I just noticed that he's listed as "Arriving Soon" at TCP. I am still not sure if I am going to keep my preorder given that Takara's is coming out relatively soon as well. I'm curious to see how exactly this one differs from the original release

    I’m in an internal conflict... I have the MP52 seekers on order, and the Maketoys currently. Debating whether to sell on eBay or to keep as jet mode displays. Currently have Earthrise seekers as jet mode displays.

    First world problems...

    The jet modes for the Maketoys seekers are excellent. If I had a cool way of displaying both I'd do it. I sold my Lightning and Skycrow so maybe I'll figure something out with Meteor.
