Hi Everyone,
I have some MISB Starscreams, see below. I'm trying to figure out which one to add to my collection and which ones to move on, I can't really justify having all 3.

I already have the original MP-03 'greenscream' which I really like but I want a white Starscream on my shelf.
I have the MP-06 and MP-07 Thundercracker and Skywarp, I also have the Takara Sunstorm and the Hasbro Acid Strom so I am familiar with the differences in the two versions of the mould. I like to shift figures around and display them in both modes over time as well. As such I like the original version for it's vehicle mode and the newer version for it's robot mode.

What I want to know is if there are any significant standout issues or positives with either of the releases in the picture, plastic quality, tolerance/looseness issues or anything else that peoples have come across? Why would you keep one over the other two?

US first release (MP-3 type) if it's the Japanese "USA Edition" (better rear wing tips IIRC) or you really want your Takara seekers to match it.

Japanese MP-11 if you want the better robot mode and accessories.

Hasbro MP-11 if you want poor QC, less deco.

For me, MP-11, but I can understand the appeal of the US first version in the window box.

Thanks for your thoughts, the window doesn't matter, eventually which ever I choose will be freed from it's prison.
Hmmm, so of the 3 you'd say the Hasbro version of MP-11 has the worst QC?
I got the impression that apart from the blue nosecone, the Hasbro and Takara versions of the MP-11 mould had nearly identical colours?

I think just for the accessories go for the MP11, and the show accurate color scheme.
But you sound like you like the MP03 design so you might as well stick with the middle one..

I have that one and one day I'm going to hack him...

With TR voyager Galvatron and legends Wheelie and Gnaw, my Transformers: The Movie is at a level completion I am happy with. I am left with a minor dilemma: do I use CHUG deluxe Hot Rod or the new TR deluxe Hot Rod? Leaning slightly towards the latter but ideally I would prefer he wasn't a headmaster.

Thoughts?

This is correct I had all three starscream and the latest Hasbro one feels cheap, I can't put my finger on it but I sold it off and got the Takara one back.
