Masterpiece is a toyline created by Takara to update a character's G1 toy with today's advanced engineering techniques. "Masterpiece" Transformers tend to be very expensive, with an average price of 10000 yen (roughly $80 at current conversion rates). Currently, the Masterpieces appear to be on a bi-yearly rotation, with a new being released in the spring or the fall.

This is a representation of G1 Optimus Prime in die-cast.

MP-02 - Ultra Magnus

MP-03 - Starscream

This toy is designed by mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori who had designed some of the original Diaclone toys, including F-15 Robo which would become Starscream and the rest of the seekers, he also famously designed the VF-1 Valkyries which Habsro recolored as Jetfire. It was designed to resemble a real-life jet hence the dark gray color scheme, there is a lot of kibble used to cover up the robot parts to form a streamlined fuselage such as the parts of the rear fuselage that hang off the hips like sheaths.

He comes with a non-transforming Megatron gun, so one can re-enact the several moments in the series where he fired Megatron in gun mode, and a stand that can support him both in aircraft mode and robot mode (as he is very prone to falling over).

In fighter mode, he has a height of 10 cm, a length of 33 cm and a wingspan of 22 cm, these dimension make him fit nicely with 1/60 scale model aircraft. All the redecos (such as the other seekers) and the re-tools (such as MP-11) have the same dimensions.[1]

Masterpiece Starscream

For the American release, Hasbro had recolored MP-03 based on his G1 toy design (with a blue nosecone as opposed to a gray one like in the show), no changes were made to the engineering, however.

There are weathering effects on this version with tints to his red and blue color-scheme as opposed to totally gray/black colors like Black Convoy to place emphasis that this is a dying version.

Roller also has a yellow NERV logo on him. Convoy can store a red-colored matrix inside his chest and has a red NERV logo on his right shoulder.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime

Hasbro release of MP-10.

MP-11 - Starscream Coronation Version

This is a retool of MP-03 Starscream. MP-11 removes a lot of the kibble that provided the streamlined vehicle mode accurate to an F-15 Eagle and instead provides a robot mode as accurate to the television series as possible. Accuracy to the series in vehicle mode has also been improved e.g. the nosecone is gray, following the show appearance rather than a blue like the original G1 toy. The tail fins are now part of the legs. The feet are completely re-molded and viewable jet engines also serve as heels for Starscream in robot mode, providing better balance. Starscream no longer has detachable missiles; instead, his Null-rays are attached to his arm on small pieces connected to ball joints which attach to his wings in aircraft mode, this allows you to transform Starscream without taking anything apart, not even the weapons.

MP-11 comes with new accessories such as a crown and a foldable cape, as seen in The Transformers: The Movie, although he lacks to stand that allows you to display him in aircaft mode.
