    Good job we've seen his colour better represented in previously released photos as baby-blue is not colour that strikes fear into ones enemies. ;)

    No indentation on the upper legs to be seen here, just like on Starscream.

    Figure King pictures tend to be oversaturated I believe, probably won't know for sure til Sunday, if they just don't show stock photos

    The head looks more black and the face more white. The only things that were stopping this being 10/10 for me. Oh I’m excited !!

    Looks like it. Could be that the photo/scan quality is so bad, or could be a different prototype

    Was just about to tag you EBIV after the other comments, looks like you won't need to go to Games Workshop after all!

    The TC in the scan looks similar to the “in hand” one from a few weeks ago because they both have the extra pin access hole circled in red. Interestingly that in the flight pose with the yellow thrusters is an older pic revealed during the preorders. However the colors are inconsistent so it’s unclear whether if it’s the magazine or the camera. So far we’ve seen TC in a flat blue, a brighter blue and now a light baby blue. In other words, we’ve not learned much. 0ECDEDC6-8724-4D37-9C04-737ACE7F2719.jpeg 6B68FA67-BDAF-457A-9084-37F6D5511533.jpeg

    I feel like an idiot, I never noticed the thigh indents were in all of the photos all along!

    Like @Aldetron said, I think Takara has airbrushed them out in some of these shots. Credit to @Paco Grande for first pointing them out, otherwise I wouldn’t have caught it either. As of now, there is a lot we don’t know.
    1. Will the final TC have the 3 piece thigh or one piece?
    2. Will the final TC have the two pin access holes by his crotch like in recent shots or be smooth like the early prototype shots?
    3. Which shade of blue is the one true blue?
    4. Will Starscream come with these TC differences or will he stay true to the prototype?

    His designation number should've been "MP-52T", because "MP-52+" sounds like MP-52 in his toy colors....

    Damnit. A 3rd shade of blue?

    I hate not knowing which one it’s going to be!

    I really don’t think it’s gonna be the one in Figure King. Surely they’d lead with something closer to that in the stock photography.

    ...which is the color I like the least, and is the least cartoon accurate of the 3 we’ve seen.

    What shows up on scree images don't usually translate as the exact color in real time.
