    Wasn't expecting to see this so quick. Amazing!!
    I really have been trying to fight the temptation to get all 3 so I can buy a camera lens or something but bruh!!
    I'm holding out that the canopy has some kind of sticker inside to change the look because I'm more partial to Starscreams one, has that G1/Diaclone transparent parts vibe I like.

    The crown looks nothing short of amazing, I hated the old one.. this looks exactly like the movie. If I can get all 3 I'll try my best to get a pal in Japan to help me on the address part.

    Haha, more like intentional omissions :D  --I did have actual criteria for this and sticker sheet Starscream didn't make the cut, and the lower right teal/grey guy simply doesn't exist--I went through the referenced episodes frame by frame, and no other source of information on generic seekers mentions it. The image was uploaded by someone with no other history of contributions to verify their credibility!

    Do you have pics of your customs somewhere? :drool:

    Meh. As a massive Skywarp fan I should be doing cartwheels right about now but this is uninspiring.

    It's kinda sloppy and a real missed opportunity they didn't give Skywarp and Thundercracker new face sculpts and an accessory of their own or two (ruby crystal minecart? A nod to teleporting?) but instead just did what they always do and rehash Starscream on newly painted bodies.

    Couldn't care less about TC and SW having the same number, but why do they always have to treat them as SS clones rather than separate personalities? (i.e: look at what they did with the face sculpts for the Datsuns. Did Smokescreen's face sculpt look identical to Prowl's? Hell, no! There was differentiation!)

    This one's face should be white not grey with his trademark cheetah tears.

    As is, it's just another Skyscream the same as MP11SW and those that came before.

    6 or 7/10 for what should've been an easy 9.

    A V3 of an MP Skywarp had a chance to capture the "character" instead of just the "colour scheme."

    From the left to the right.....

    I spy with my crooked eye, I spot an Onslaught and Silverbolt repaint in there, are any of them based on colour schemes of other bots or are they just random repaints?

    You mean Skywarp?

    :p 

    Anyhow, really stoked for this release. It's been quite a while since I had the slot of 'must have' character filled in the MP line, Skywarp looks brilliant, I would have preferred the purple that chchchchch (did I get it right?) has put up but this will do. I love the way TT is knocking these out so rapidly it keeps the momentum going something that's been sorely lacking in recent years. I really hope TT doesn't release the Coneheads in this fashion (and by that I hope they do, haha!) because they aren't 'must have' characters for me and I'll be spending so much....

    Damn you, TT??

    He's talking about the panel line details on the faces, that are totally there because that's the geometry of their faces.

    But Starscream was drawn a bit differently (maybe because the extra black lines on his face would have made it look muddier with his dark grey colouring), so some people think their faces should be molded differently as well.

    That looks like plenty of "ch"s to me! :lol 

    I knew this ridiculous write-up I did would come in handy someday! MP Starscream 3.0 Wishlist/Discussion

    Basically, the top left and right appear as background generics/coloring errors in the MTMTE pilot, the second from top left is the coloring used for Starscream in a vintage G1 tie-in sticker set, and the lower right isn't from anywhere (TFWiki caption says it's from MTMTE but I can't find it and it's not referenced anywhere else). The other four (including the ones with Silverbolt's and Onslaught's coloring) show up in crowd shots in Five Faces of Darkness.

    Yes, they're there on Starscream too, but Skywarp's face being paler, they were always much more noticeable.

    Skywarp never really wore Starscream's expressions and doesn't look right with them imho (much more sombre & deadpan)

    The straight faced expression included with MP52 is so evidently the smug Screamer about to open his almighty trap, not either of the other two.

    So tears or no tears, a separately moulded face makes sense. At least, to me.

    You’re not wrong. I don’t think anyone would disagree that more faces would’ve been better. However, these are the cards we are dealt.

    Not more, as such. Just not obviously belonging to Starscream.
