    I have all of wave 1 & 2 Movie the Best figures, as you can see on my YouTube Movie Best playlist, except Bumblebee. I missed out on him. And the plastic quality and paint on then far surpasses anything before it. Ever! Look AND feel! I liked them so much that I already pre paid for the entire wave 3 and 4 Movie Best figures in hopes that they are similar/same in quality control, plastic used, and paint used. The paint is baked on there or something, and scratch resistant (as shown in my MB-07 Soundwave review). However I had no idea that they weren't


    The only thing I'm concerned about is if the newer molds, TLK Leader Megatron/Optimus ect. will be as strong as plastic as used on the other MB molds

    That's not necessarily true. The Masterpiece Movie molds have differences & those are in the same vein. They both are titled TakaraTomy and Hasbro & they made a plethora of differences between the 2 Optimus Primes. So why not this one too? There is at least a good chance

    I prefer the transformation and overall design of the deluxe figure. Even though the leader looks better in bot mode, the deluxe has a far better jet mode. I'm glad they went with the deluxe design instead.

    Why make them look different when they literally have almost the exact same robot design?

    This!

    Personally, I think this new voyager will top all of the previous Screamer molds.

    I'm not a big fan of the chicken leg kite walker design, but from the pics we've seen, it looks better than previous toys.

    Well after I was looking at both their designs, you're right the TLK berserker mold works best. That plus my dotm crankcase broke :( 
    Ah well I do hope I can try a hatchet custom.

    If you know how to Transform him and i can see how it can be a bitch to learn, thrn he's ok. But the vehicle mode is by far sturdy so I know what you mean. That said i.wss able to transform him immediately but I couldn't get him to stand right but it was the fact I wasn't using the chicken leg joint. This might be your problem? Hope it helps

    Your the one not understandIng. He pointed it out pretty clearly. That the part of the leg is half assed it's not about if he IS chicken legged he was pointing out that his chicken legs are made half ass compared to the leader or more importantly the actual CGI model.

    Seriously, we can’t even see Statscream’s lower legs properly in the photo. It’s probably just mistransformed. They looked ok in the original leaked images.

    This.

    It's just a matter of perspective foreshortening as well.

    Anyway, the visible transformation joints clearly point out, the basic engineering and transformation of this new voyager, are similar to the DOTM Deluxe mold.
    However, it seems this voyager seems to do a better job at forming a closed torso with those side panels, whereas on the deluxe mold they remained a bit gappy.

    The thighs form the upper part of the jetengines, instead of fully straightening out under the fuselage like the Leader mold does.
