    The bigger one sits on his head but it isn't a tight fit:

    A big box from BBTS was waiting for me, and one of the goodies inside was Richthofen!!! And this little plane bot did not disappoint! There is any little issue I have it would be trying to plant his feet correctly without having him rock back and forth while standing. Otherwise, This IS my MP Powerglide. And awaaaaay we go! :)

    I say this all the time, and I always get blank looks. Always. Even from my friends who I know watched TF in the past.

    Is one of the masks that came with XTB Paean a better fit for Sunsurge?

    IIRC MP-39 Sunstreaker will come with one.

    Ah, yes, you are correct. I forgot all about that one, and I'm really looking forward to Sunstreaker!

    I love mine, but I've noticed it's missing a pin in one of the shoulders, which connects the silver arm to the red wing.
    The arm just wiggles off :(

    Aww, that sucks. Have you contacted your retailer? Otherwise, maybe try messaging them on Facebook. That's what I'm going to do right now in regards to the paint problems on mine.

    Perhaps, but it's worth a try. Besides, I don't really have any other options. I guess I could ask the eBay seller after the fact, but he probably won't care.

    Yeah, he's definitely one shade too light when compared to the G1 toy. Can't really compare to the animation model though since it varies so much.

    You can consider fabricating a temporary pin using some thicker gauge wire. Not perfect but at least the arm stays on.

    If I have any complaints about this figure, it's the odd (and misplaced) silver paint on the sides in plane mode and the red flip out hooks that hold the backpack in place. Nothing seems to be pinned in on a lot of the flip out pieces (landing gear, included) and they either pop off or get stuck and it really annoys me when I want a smooth transformation (which happens every other).

    Aside from that, doggone this is a nice design. DX9 and Unique Toys should be the cream of the crop, top of the heap and then all others. I remember when UT was shaky during Predaking (Divebomb, in particular) and now they're like "I'm a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar!"

    ...well, you know, sans the shocking and fatal impalement.

    No QC issues whatsoever. Is there something wrong with my shoulder? I don't see it.
    The joints are tight, but not way too tight. Only thing I did not see first is that you have to pull the head up to make it turn.
