More like 15 years given the engineering is from MP-3, with some mods made for MP-11.
I posted this on the 3P forum for the UT Galvatron, but I guess it fits a MP-52 thread thread too. Yes, I know, wrong movie for this Galvatron.
Megatron, is that you?!!
Here’s a hint!
Awesome, must have missed that! Thanks x2!
I was just looking at the prototype pics again. The pin holes are definitely longer but they look kind of wonky because of the way the back of the jet tapers away from the centre. I'm thinking the taper made unreliable holes because they were oval shaped, so they decided to chop the odd geometry right out. But then you would think the pins would be shorter so you wouldn't see them sticking out like that. Anyway I'm pretty sure they were forced to do that because of the tapering jet geometry. It doesn't look great but it works pretty well.
Only Starscream figure I know of with articulation able to aim like this(this is pretty much Robot Damashii level arm articulation):
There's just so much expressiveness to this figure! Love it! The newer figures look so good together, but damn MP Soundwave looks rather dated now.
One leg! I guess this means mine ankles are ok.
Comes to V2 MP Starscream thread, nothing but floppy knees, cracked ankles and tail fins. Sigh..... nothing but kiki, superglue, heat gun ....... Takara should release a D.I.Y kit that comes with the next release!
Decided to mess with the accessories a bit tonight... and THE STAND FOR THIS FIGURE EFFING SUCKS!
It was too loose to hold the jet mode up. Tried to tighten a screw & ended up stripping it. Use super glue to repair & was able to tighten one joint.
Then tried using the stand for bot mode. WTF? The way it's designed, there's no good way to use it for bot mode. And even when you do get him on there, the joint again is too weak to hold bot mode aloft.
Damn, that's a lot of plastic for something poorly designed that barely works.
Soundwave definitely needs some V2 love!!
package is on its way
Totally depending on the figure being good or not will push me to sell all my MPs and switch to Legends collecting XD
The QC spirits are telling me you will have a good copy!
I have mentioned/warned about it earlier in this thread regarding the stand.
Use/apply Future polishon the swivel-joints of the stand instead of overtightening the screws.
Oh, well. Clobberin' time...
That's exactly what I planned....MP52 made the decision difficult.
when current WFC figures getting so good and fit exactly what I want for semi mini MP style and also Diaclone GRIDMAN released.. MPs are pretty truly but man the price to value ratio dropped way too fast.
Just had to take a pic of what I consider the three best mps to date together!
Oh wait…that’s not right…
Anyway, I forget who was asking before, but here’s a direct comparison of the two Starscream heads—I hadn’t seen one with them this close together before so I thought I’d post the comparison:
The head that comes with Prime is a shade or two darker (helmet and face), just a millimeter or two smaller in every dimension, and a little more squarish as well. Never realized how thin the Prime Screamer head’s nose was until now…yeesh. I do like the more reflective eyes of the Prime one though…but all in all, the new one is the winner for me!
TT reused the stand made for MP-41 Beast wars Dinobot. They could have added teeth/gears so it can lock but instead a screw was used to the tighten joints. Stand wasn’t great for Dinobot and so.....well you know the rest.
