    I haven't yet but I don't follow Transformers as closely... If someone has a link, please share if so inclined.

    Re: Transformers - \"Masterpiece Edition\" Thread

    Seems GNT forgot about the Alternator's line of Transformers in his thread split up but I figure they are close enough to the Masterpiece line to be included in this thread.

    Anyway my news is I finally found Mirage/Ford GT today. I have been looking for this one for ages but all I kept on seeing here is Optimus Prime, Ricochet, Rollbar, Tracks and Meister so it was great to find this new model. I really dig the Ford GT, it is one "[censored]" looking car in that midnight blue colour scheme and the robot mode suits Mirage very well. But I was a bit gutted because my Mirage is missing the blue handle for one of his guns so looks like I will have to contact Hasbro NZ to get a replacement part.

    After getting Prowl who I though sucked it is great to see the Alternators back on track and with a good couple of models up next in Rumble and Ravage!

    Trying not to completely hijack this thread, but for you Alternator fans, here is a sweet site to make them look more like their G1 counterparts:

    Also has head swap between Prowl and Red Alert so that both are better suited to their G1 likeness.

    As for the Masterpiece line, how do you get 4? I know of Optimus, 'Screamer, and Megs. Are you counting Prime's trailer as one? Also, has the Starscream been released yet? I heard all about it being made, but nothing on it being released? Guess these are just 2 more items to add to my Botcon list for this summer!

    There was an Ultra Magnus Masterpiece edition released in both China and Australia. it was just a white version of Optimus and better quality then that cheap plastic Optimus Hasbro released.

    Hasbro actually released 2. The second one with the base was the one with the cheap plastic, but the first one was mostly diecast

    Ah, I see. I got the 1st issued one, and it had a lot of die-cast metal on him! So I guess if you do count Prime's trailer, then the count would be 5!

    I have MP Prime and he is godly. Words do not suffice to describe his greatness.

    I ordered MP Starscream despite the BS colors, and mine came with the legs glued in plane mode. Obviously I was very upset, and sent it back to BBTS, who was gracious enough to give me a refund. I was so annoyed, I did not replace him, thinking one closer to cartoon colors might be coming.

    I can't wait to get my hands on Megatron, hopefully no QC issues this time. If he's good I may even order another Starscream so Megs has someone to smack around.

    I bought the die cast Prime in 2004 at a convention. It is awesome. I also bought the Japanese reissue of Shockwave. this thread is the first I've heard of Megatron and Star scream and they look great. I will definitely be picking these up. Although Starscreams current colors are off, he kinf of looks like Thundercracker.

    Here's a new shot of Megs in box. I can't wait!
