The long-awaited Transformers Masterpiece figure of the Decepticon/Destron Air Commander, Starscream, is finally released! Unlike this original show, this new design is more "realistic" and has been visualized by Shoji Kawamori (the legendary mecha designer for the Macross series). Starscream's jet mode is a very accurate representation of an F-15 with excellent recessed and darkened panel line detail on the entire figure. Additionally, the jet engine nozzles are nicely detailed and the nozzles can be moved in all directions simulating thrust vectoring. The jet's radar dome can be removed to reveal the mechanism inside, and the flaps and ailerons are moveable, too!
Since this is a Masterpiece figure, the transformation process from jet mode to robot mode is fairly complex and will take some time to accomplish on your first couple of tries. When fully transformed, Starscream stands approximately 9" tall and is amazingly well-articulated right down to the moveable fingers. Starscream's chest can be lifted up to reveal the missiles just like in the TV animation series, plus his face part can be turned to reveal a sinisterly smirking expression. The only metal parts on this figure are some key joints and the base frame. The rest is made out of ABS plastic.
Accessories include a nicely detailed custom display base with stand, two pairs of Sidewinder missiles to replace the nullray guns in jet mode, a joint part for attaching Megatron in gun mode (not included, use the one that comes with MP-01 or MP-04) underneath jet mode Starscream, a sticker sheet for decorating Starscream with Decepticon logos, custom numberings, squadron logos, and caution stencils, and a figure of Dr. Archeville from the TV animation series for sitting in the pilot seat.
