Takara-Tomy Announces their next Masterpiece – Movie Starscream!

image004

Fans sometimes throw around the term “Masterpiece” quite freely – especially when it comes to the excellent level of engineering in the Leader Class Revenge of the Fallen toys. Takara-Tomy seems to feel the same way, because their next Masterpiece toy is none other than a Japanese release of Leader Class Movie Starscream! Packaged in a box reminiscent of Takara-Tomy’s other Masterpiece offerings, MP-M01 Starscream features a cleaner, non-tatooed look for Starscream compared to the version recently released at US retail – in the one promotional picture of the robot itself, at least. The box photography still features the tatooed Starscream we’re getting in the west, so who knows what the final product will be?

    I hope that toy picture isn't the final product.

    As tiny as the picture is, it seems to have LESS detailing in terms of tattoos than the Hasbro version.

    How do you know that it's going to be a leader class repackaged?

    100% markup! That's crazy talk, that is. Better be an awesome paint job.

    First up in the new Masterpiece Transformers the Movie line, is Masterpiece Movie Starscream! Including a very high level of detail only the Masterpiece line delivers on, this piece will be a great addition to any Masterpiece or Starscream collection.

    it looks just like the leader class and if you look at the box art that IS the leaderclass, the text makes it seem like a new mold, but images say otherwise, but i would gladly welcome a new mold, cause that would be cool

    Would have to be an awesome paintjob to make me consider investing.

    well TFSource just replied to me on fb with this:
    Quote:
    It looks like a repainted/recolored version of Leader Class Starscream... but no other information was provided. Just what is shown, so more info is to come.
    safe to say for now we can say it is just a repainted version of Leader Class Starscream

    Pointless direction in which to take the Masterpiece line. Utterly pointless.
