New Masterpiece might be a ROTF Leader Class Repaint!

    If that's true it' the laziest thing I've ever heard. A new low for HasTak :(

    I find this hard to believe. There is a standard to MP and not one of the movie leaders matches.

    Rereleasing a toy from last year as a MP is both lazy and money grabbing.

    They have been doing it for years .

    Yes, it does smack of cynicism on the part of Takara, especially when the packaging art circulating shows the tattoos don't look any different from Hasbro's version,

    Not least in that they will charge Masterpiece price for what was supposed to be a Leader class.

    That said, it still *feels* like it was originally intended as a mainline mold, there's a sort of 'chunkiness' or 'robustness' to a lot of it that i haven't found in the MP line.

    I'd put that down to the main lines being intended for kids (aswell as collectors) and need to be that bit more durable.

    Indeed. I wonder how many five year olds got MP Skywarp for Xmas.... and how many of them are still intact.

    I can only imagine. "Oh look a big Transformer and not too expensive..."

    I got MP Skywarp cheap from Argos.

    Still MISB as I'm undecided about keeping it or finishing the set of Seekers.

    Not interested in the coneheads. Not even a toy collector at all. MP Skywarp is the only one I have, but it'd be a shame to have Skywarp and not Thundercracker and Starscream.

    but it's still amusing to see people get their panties in a twist because their precious G1-centric line might be 'defiled' by a movie design.[/QUOTE]

    Actually this seems to be a seperate Masterpiece line. Masterpiece Movie Starscream has a different designation than the others [ie. Masterpiece Prime was MP-01, Movie Starscream will be MP-M01]

    I haven't really collected any of the Masterpieces [I have Prime and thats it] so adding Movie Screamer is definitely not my "panties in a twist"
