    I wouldn't be surprised if it's legit. They gotta squeeze the money out of the new MP Starscream mold.

    Maybe we're back to the early MP days where MP-6 and 7 followed quickly instead of waiting years between MP-11 and MP-11T

    Don't know the original source for the photo, which is the only reason I have a very small doubt on its legitimacy. But the photo isn't a pose we've seen Starscream in and it's a famous pose for Thundercracker in the original opening.

    My insider info also tells me Skywarp is getting released too, which is equally as shocking as Thundercracker here.

    At least the effects parts for the thrusts are orange instead of pink with TC

    Aaaaaah!! Too soon, damnit!
    I would really prefer to experience Starscream in hand before I decide if I'll spring for all 3.
    Definitely don't have room for 3 figures this size (let alone their huge boxes) in my current apartment but a display with the complete trio might be really cool if I ever move to a bigger place.

    Is January 14th the release date in 2022, or is that the date this month that pre-orders will go live?

    Hmmm, If I had to guess, I'd say preorder as TT likes to get their preorders up early. Also, this is probably one of the "many MPs" mentioned in the Skids tweet.

    Yup that's what I figured

    Thanks for the confirmation!

    Usually it's 7-9 months out so I guess we can expect a release in September or later :thumb

    Thundercracker looks pretty toon, crisis averted.:) 
    Has skids been confirmed as 53? I'm guessing this a mall exclusive? Or hopefully a general release like 20 and 12+, the fact it's not numbered is concerning. Along with no flight stand. Guess it would allow Hasro to do like Spinout and actually offer it cheaper than the Japanese MSRP

    GIVE ME MY BLUE BOI AND GIVE ME HIM NOW

    This. Lack of Mini Reflector is a sin.

    And this is just bullshit that they don't show his flight stand, major dick move by Takara if he doesn't include one.

    I'm fine for either or. If they do make it a variation of MP-52 they should just get the numbering right, haha.

    This would be a great time for Hasbro to partner with Walmart or Target and have the seekers released stateside like they did with the last two versions. Prices were fantastic too.
