Masterpiece Starscream US 02

Thanks for board member barrelks, we got wind that retail giant Toys”R”Us has posted a product page on their website for Masterpiece MP 07 Starscream, and along with it we have official images of this Hasbro release’s of the updated Masterpiece Starscream mold.

Comparing to the Takara’s release of Masterpiece Starscream, there appears to be only a few notable differences. In fighter mode, the jet’s nosecone is painted blue on Hasbro’s, while the Takara’s is left grey. In robot mode, it appears the only difference is Hasbro’s feet panel is painted black or dark gray instead of the light grey on Takara’s.

Don’t remember Takara’s specific coloration? You can head to our resource section’s listing for their version of Masterpiece Starscream here, then check out the images mirrored below, and let us know what you think of the differences, or there lack of, between the two release.

Pre-orders are up here!

Runabout

Thanks to Takara designer Hisashi Yuki, we get an in-hand glimpse at the upcoming TAV-25 Legends Class Runabout and we felt it’d be fun to share his pic of the mini Battlecharger. 

Runabout is a repaint of the Combiner Wars Black Jack mold we saw in wave 2 and appears to be covered in Decepticon symbols proudly displayed with two on his shoulders and one big one on his chest.

Hopefully down the road we’ll see his twin, Runamuck, from the same mold but for now you can check out the image we’ve mirrored from Yuki’s twitter after the jump!
