    My guess is that Starscream v3 will be released in 2035, so Skywarp v3 and Thundercracker v3 will perhaps be released in 2036 and 2037 respectively. ;)

    I had the Maketoys headmasters but I sold them a while back because I have no hope that they will finish those.

    Hopefully Takara will pump out Skywarp and Thundercracker pretty soon. I'm still trying to decide which seekers to sell and when.

    Yes, I hope it wont take as long as it took for the MP-11 mold where it dragged on forever.
    I mean it’s just a recolour. It doesn’t need to take 5 years for a recolour.

    Face resculpts, new accessories ... counting the 8 months still to go before MP52 hits, they're still 18 months - 2 years away, trust me.

    Think it simply comes down to demand, pretty sure mp6&7 when on deep discount like their American counterparts. TC& SW probably sold well enough last time as exclusives, that they should be willing to chance a general release and a lot sooner.

    Praise Primus I haven't "YET" experienced MP disintegration (my Mp5 has Cosmic Rust on his feet and MP01 Megatron gun stock broke in 4 months). My OG BigConvoy transluscent left shoulder broke off for no reason (not stressed out or worn out abuse from me and my 2001 Godginrai main bot feet just broke off when I transformed him).

    THat's just Takara but I will also present to you defunct Yamato. My Garland's right shoulder joint(the plastic part not the metal connectors just crumbled. 1/60 DYRL Hikaru shoulder joints (again the shoulders) broke because according to the scuttlebutt, the pins were reversed assembled.

    Defunct CMS 1st ed Gaogaigar had plastic knees when it should have been die-cast being the connecting joint to the metal Gao drill.

    So Takara ain't the only culprit.

    Nope. Actual. :cry  My Hound hasn't broke up on me yet. I don't own MP9 but plan to get the "LongLife" edition which is said to have fixed the issues. The rest are my own personal collection break experiences.

    Is it just me or does mp 52 look chubby? Im more for the mp 11 style, which feels sleek and reminds me more of the seekers

    Rounder but not chubby. MP-11 went followed the 2000s trend in Japan for less fakeout/faux parts for transformation and somewhat of a more modernized/idealized look. Since that’s been done and a full on cartoon Starscream hasn’t been done, it seemed like Takara used MP-52 as an opportunity to fill that gap.

    I forgotten but does anyone know is AJ charges exchange rate? I used to have Capital One to pay for MPs with AJ and didn't get charged then but don't have that card anymore.

    Usually your card issuer will do that. If you pay with [your currency] from your card, but pay AJP in yen, your card does it. If you're able to switch AJP to show prices in [your currency] then your card will just pay whatever's on screen, but Amazon Japan won't charge you a nice neat conversion when they do that. They might not profit from it in the classic sense, but the rate won't be favourable because they then need to exchange it to yen themselves and that costs them (so in turn it costs you).

    That's about as good as typical pictures of supernatural beings - I'm convinced! :)  Must literally be Starscream's ghost - OMG ghost Starscream clear version confirmed!
