Thank you. Coming from you, it's an honor.
Thanks Agent 539. Nicely done!
Now wishing they'd do a re-issue of the KO Takara Prime...
Really nice sequences 539!
Regarding Hasbro Starscream, i was fortunate in picking one up last Saturday. As far as QC, his chest is super tight- no unwanted unpegging happening here.
Mine had some scuff marks on the paint on his right forearm.
The main QC issue on mine is that he has 2 right fins, what should have been a different moulded part for the left fin, instead it is exactly the same as the right one.
Yes, the Hasbro Roddy is a custom with painted boots and head crest. That is the only touch ups I did nto and and he looked miles better.
Masterpiece Starscream was back up for preorder. Wonder why it went up so late EST time. Anyone get one (5)?
It's pretty noticeable, but for $60 can't really complain. Also, I'm no expert but the plastic feels just as solid as the other seekers to me. He really does feel solid and tight as others have said. I think they nailed the grey perfectly. But it does feel like a "toy" and not a premium collector's figure.
This is the best shot I could get off my phone's camera of light passing through the plastic. Definitely worth the $60 (which is now open for pre-order again at TRU!).
Some Starscream love!
Thanks. I like the extra paint apps on him. Really brings him to life even though he has dead eyes. I tried the KFC hands on him only to remember that the KO Prime is slightly larger than the OEM Prime. You wouldn't be able to tell side-by-side but the hands can tell.
I loved the color of the canopy. What are you using for your background?
it's 11 PM here in cali, and there are no open preorders... how long was it open?
According to the party over in these threads, about 90 minutes ->
only an hour or so?
FFS, FML... I was being a good husband sitting down to actual dinner with the family... see, that's what I get!!!
Love that face, thank you.
The red on the new TRU MP Starscream looks so cheap! Looks like I'll have to bust out the paint. Assuming I can find it.
Thanks 539! I'm using the interrogation background that came with the Hot Toys 1/6 scale Joker from The Dark Knight.
Sadly, my transformers have taken over my Deltofs and my Hot Toys figures have been put back into their cardboard homes for the time being.
sons of bitches!!!
are the tail fins also a different shade? it appeared so to me from the stock photo's.
I was pleasantly surprised by the head sculpt and paint job. Although it might be just a wee-bit too dark.
Starscream 's face is usually dark grey in the G1 cartoon, where Skywarp and ThunderCracker have light silver faces. So I'm more than fine with the dark shade on his face.
