    There are few men of culture left these days:lol 
    Think how much cool stuff will be lost once we're gone, kids nowadays swear they invented "cap" and "simp".

    Ok so who's planning to print a custom crown for MP-52 for those who aren't able to get the (pretty lazy) coronation gear?

    This will be a fun figure. I am still on the fence with the head size. It seems 10-15% larger than his body proportion wise. Its kind of the opposite effect from Make Toys Scarecrow. I dont care that it's screen accurate. He just looks like a big head. I am hoping its not so obvious in hand.

    Awww, go easy on ol' MP03. The little guy did pay his dues...

    ...1st indication of MP as a line and not just a Prime figure...
    ...1st MP of the current scale (OG Op and Meg too big, Grimlock is too small, OG Rodimus/Hot Rod fits both scales)...
    ...Only MP seeker model that attempts the realistic jet mode in both form and paint schemes...
    ...Only MP seeker mold to host Ghost SC...
    ...Only seeker mold with changeable faces (up til now)...
    ...Last MP model with mechanical pistons in the knees and elbows (later transferred to MP11)...
    ...most copied MP mold to date (when including iGear "modded" seekers and the MP11 4th party)...
    ...highest price hike of all MP, at least percentage wise (I think at least :p , not as good at math as I use to be)...

    With that being said, this dated f**k is getting replaced immediately. I gotta give the "OG Bobbie Johnson" his props, though.

    Whoever does a good one and a wire cape combo gets my money. Hanging on to my MP-11 until there is a 3rd party coronation kit as I doubt I'll be able to secure the TT one in the states.

    MP-11 was never called V2 by TakaraTomy anywhere, so I have no qualms calling this new guy V2.0.

    At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what it says on the box. We're getting an awesome new toy!

    Just hoping that the chest color looks better in hand. I'm betting it's similar to the Arcee situation.

    Thank you for sharing. I have never of heard of this site but I’m willing to give it a shot, especially at that price.

    I think that MP-03 had a more interesting aesthetic direction, and certainly a unique one, but this looks to be a decent recreation of the cartoon design.

    Starscream looks great. Full of character. Still at his price I am skipping... but I will be getting Skywarp.

    2. Is from the core, where Starscream was explaining to Megatron that putting a giant drill through the earth may destroy the planet. (I don't recall him being nearly as happy explaining it either :D ).

    Which is funny because Starscream had no issues with wanting to blow up the Earth and everything on it to collect the energy it would release in “Countdown to Extinction”. :lol

    *Rule number 2 of being Starscream* It's never a problem UNLESS Megatron does it. :lol
