AJ says July 7th. I smell something burning…
Go by DHL once you get the tracking number. You should have it in about two days.
AJ said I would get Starscream on Thursday at the latest, but DHL just sent me an email that they're planning on delivering Starscream on Wednesday. Just one day faster, but door to door, all the way from Japan to The Netherlands, in only three days, that's fast. Starscream is looking great thus far. Can't wait for Wednesday. I feel like a kid again, waiting for my birthday.
DHL just messaged me, they will get it to me by Wednesday! Very excited
Interesting he says there's a lot of diecast in the torso and crotch. That true? Haven't seen anyone else mention it.
Half-Assed Review time!
Comes with quite a few accessories and I thought it looked a bit smaller than I would think
Nice and solid yet slightly hefty due to some die cast metal parts, admittedly the nose cone is a lil on the short side but I don't really care, The Tail fins are nice and solid and won't flop around like MP-11 or MT Meteor, and the underside kibble kinda looks lazy in design but it's not too far off from the animation model either so I can let it slide. What I don't like is that the jets feel a bit loose when extended and it's noticeably worse when you plug in the jets effects so it's hard to keep it streamline.
Surprisingly easy tbh
Construction feels quite light, mostly in the wings, so I exercise caution anyways in case I snap em or something despite that there doesn't feel like anything will stress or break, also the instructions tell you to go through the Gerwalk mode to get to the Robot mode but almost everything tabs in securely except for the shoulder intakes not tabbing into the backpack ,but that doesn't effect the solidity of the robot mode. Overall nice and stress free and doesn't feel like anything will break.
Spitting image of the animation model, which feels nice and solid as fuck, which is something that both MP-11 and (to an extent) MT Meteor fail at and he looks so much better compared to them, and the backpack doesn't look or feel like it's floppy or nothing tabbing anywhere, it cleans up pretty nicely but I can still see the blue tail fins sticking out like a sore thumb but at least it made an effort to clean up, unlike fuckin' MP-45 Bumblebee v2 lol. And yes the faux cockpit is cast in translucent orange plastic as I originally feared, but the paint on it isn't mis coloured as we saw on Takara's tweets so that put my mind at ease, but I'm still careful with trying not to chip the paint on it. He looks so succulent when paired with MP-36 Megatron, and I think the height is pretty accurate imo as he's the same height as. MT meteor and MP-11, as for the articulation he's got a nice range of mobility and the individually articulated fingers feel nice and he's able to flip the robo-bird at Megatron, and yes I still would liked to have a waist swivel on it as he's somewhat limited in that regard but I think the ab crunch and the faces make up for that as he's so emotive! However he's a little hard to stand due to the ankle pivots and the foot bends are a somewhat loose and you might have to mistransform the shins to get his feet move up quite far.
As for the compatibility of the coronation gear, from MP-11, he does have tabs in the shoulders for the paldrons but I can't seem to get them to fit in, and considering that the Jetron campaign for the new Coronation gear straight up reuses the cape and shoulder paldrons, It makes me wonder if the tabs on those will fit in better.
I think it's another win for Takara, a nice update to the MP-11 mould and has a nice shelf presence and he's very solid in both modes, with an complex yet easy transformation
Strong recommendation from me and it makes me even more hyped for MP-52+ Thundercracker and MP-52+SW Skywarp to even out the MP Decepticons with the Autobots.
Question is how the flying heck am I going to display all of em on my tiny MP shelf?
But anyways here's the images!
This will make sense if you either heard of UW Megatronia, read the tie in manga, or own the combiner yourself
Oh so NOW they post the transformation video
Awesome mini review @AndyPurro, and love the pics!
So according to tracking my Starscream is in Dublin and with the courier out for delivery.... holy shit!
Nice photos Andypurro!
Dang, I think I am gonna have get this (despite having initially convinced myself that I don’t need it).
I've ordered mine from ShowZ, hasn't even shipped yet.
About bloody time!
DHL reckons Thursday for my UK delivery...
Yeah I noticed the chest and shoulder intakes at least appear to be diecast. Not sure about the crotch, but if the guy says so it’s probably true.
So any reason that ShowZ still hasn't gotten him?
That 'how it pains me to do this' shot is perfect!
can anyone thats got mp11 and mp52 show them both on their flight stands in robot mode please can mp52 go higher?
This thing looks astonishing, i hope this is the new standard for all MP's moving forward
Well I find the music slightly less annoying than the Arcee video!
I actually like the music.
