Many of us have become aware that the upcoming Transformers toyline for 2010 (which include the Hunt for the Decepticons subline) will feature a Leader Class Starscream figure based on his apppearance in the Revenge of the Fallen movie.

However, what many of us may not know is that TakaraTomy is planning their own special release of this figure in quite a different way than one would expect. Thanks to both TFSource and BBTS, we have our first looks at the next Masterpiece figure! Behold: MP-M01 Masterpiece Transformers the Movie Edition - Starscream!

This Starscream appears to be an even more movie-accurately painted version of the Leader Class Starscream mold. And thanks to another image found by the guys at TFINO, we can clearly see that this Starscream will feature a color scheme faithful to his Movie 1 protrayal without the Cybetronian tattoos in Jet or Robot Mode.

And, being a Masterpiece, could we assume that he may feature the lost art of die-cast construction? Well, we don't know yet. But time may tell, my friends. Time may tell.

Even before this Masterpiece version was announced, I've been blown away by how awesome is the HFTD version. Has there ever been a better Transformers airplane toy? Perhaps not. It's an amazing figure that rivals Masterpiece (G1) Starscream and Buster Optimus Prime... Bring it on Takara!

I saw the news on last week. I think I will stick with the U.S version, but not until after the sandiego comic con.

Oh the leader class starscream is a thing of beauty. Better than any of the leader megatrons by a long shot. Which brings to mind why we can have a fantastic leader starscream, leader optimus, but rather unposeable leader megatrons.

Would somebody please add an elbow joint to Leader Class Megatron's gun arm?!

I haven't actually got the G1 MP Starscream, but for some reason from the pics I've seen I don't like the way he looks. He just doesn't seem quite as faithful as he could be to the guy we see in the comics and cartoon (I happen to have revoltech SS and they captured the model's details rather perfectly). This MP movie figure is the exact opposite. It looks amazing and I don't think there's anyway this figure can be topped
