What’s cooler than a giant robot in a sweet cape?
This new version of Masterpiece Starscream appears to have resculpted and recolored parts, and also comes with the crown and cape from his coronation after the supposed death of Megatron.
The jewel-studded Coronation crown and billowing purple cape depict Starscream’s absurd flourish just before the arrival of the vengeful Galvatron. An intricate mixture of plastic and die cast, the MP-11 Masterpiece Coronation Starscream features arm-mounted guns. Following the calamitous Battle of Autobot City, Starscream finally fulfilled his vainglorious quest for leadership after opportunistically casting the battered Megatron adrift in space. Among the remaining Decepticons gathered in Astrotrain’s cargo hold, Starscream’s self-nomination for Decepticon leader triggered a secondary battle for leadership between Soundwave and the Constructicons. Later, on Cybertron, on the lilting current of a pompous coronation ceremony, Starscream was reverently presented with the resplendent leadership crown—only to be completely destroyed by Galvatron prior to the oration of what would have undoubtedly been a profound morale-boosting inaugural speech.
