    I collected a bunch of Bandai Origin of Valkyrie Macross toys to fill my 1980s Jetfire hole (good thing I also like Robotech), but it was my Siege toy that really cured the problem. But having MP-57 would be like reaching back in time and patting a sad little boy on the back and saying, "Hey, look what I got you."
    LOL, despite my name, Skyfire is close to my heart, this is a definite Skyfire figure and a brilliant one at that.
    I still function.....................while killing threads. ;-)

    I'm a huge Jetfire fan. He is the only second hand Transformer in my collection because I didn't get him as a child and no reissue options obviously. He is one figure I would not sell. I also really liked the Skyfire character from the cartoon. He was a grail MP for me for a long time. However, looking at that picture of Seige version next to the MP, I'm comfortable with my decision to keep Seige Jetfire as my only non MP in my masterpiece collection. Something I never thought I would do! He fits and has the look I personally like. I understand that would not be the case for others of course. Purely a personal thing.

    It's an interesting one.

    Seeing the two side by side shows that the MP line is increasingly focusing on toon accuracy (although trying to set a "rule" for Masterpiece seems like a fools errand at this point). The face is definitely more 80's cartoon vibe and more solid block colour and shiny finish.

    The Siege one is more in line with with what MP10 was promising - the pinnacle hybrid release of realistic vehicle, intuitive transformation, and show-like figure

    Going to say it..... MP looks like an upscale kiddy version of seige. Like lego and duplo.
