    Ok so I managed to somehow fix his eyes. The original sticker that comes with it is awful and completely masks his nose making him look shitty. I don't have before picture but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
    I bought some cheap magnifying lens and a tiny scissor to cut away on the eyes but they are still too small for me but I managed somehow. Its quite hard so you'll need patience.

    Ok so here he is with the eyes fixed (somewhat).

    Encore Starscream also looks good on its own. It may not be as poseable but when he's displayed his personality shines.

    I did not took some pictures of his alternate mode, F-15, but most of you know what it looks like now.

    The bad thing is that I accidentally broke-off one of its long missles. I don't know how to repair it because superglue seems weak because of the tiny and skinny part. So anyone can help me fix this? Took a peak at tfsource and a spare will cost $15 + shipping wow! I wont go that way that's why I chose to put the short missles instead.

    Anyone? Help!

    if the superglue wasn't holding it, I'd say your glue went bad, which I've seen before. just buy a new tube, and you should be all set. you also might want to file down both sides so they're perfectly flat before gluing them.

    You could try pinning the missile. You'll need a small pinvise, a thin piece of brass rod or wire and superglue. Drill a hole in each of the separated pieces, place the brass rod in the hole, and then superglue the two halves together.

    Damn you missle!!!! I think the TFSource ones are originals which is why they are so expensive. I actually prefer the Hasbro reissue ones, the are longer and thicker. I have no idea what you can do to fix it, sorry it broke, nice work on the eyes, I should try it.

    If super glue won't hold then try some epoxy. If that fails then I would go GeeKee1's suggestion.

    Hmmm, dies gluing the "longer" missles worked? I remembered trying to repair them when I broke my original years ago ut I wasn't successful...I can't really recall the glue I used etc.

    By the way, good job on the eye stickers - good!

    Yeah looks like a paint chip - did it come like that out of the box? Thankfully its only "minor".
