    Didn't see a thread about this, so I thought I'd start one. Got my MP-06 today. Was carefully transforming him and checking out the wing hinge as I did so. Guess what? They fixed that piece. It has plenty of clearance and it should not have the cracking problem that plagued Greenscream. Now I'm looking even more forward to the G1 colored Starscream from Hasbro.

    Assuming that is, that Hasbro has done the same fix to their MP SS.

    I am pretty sure they are using the Skywarp Mold for Hasbro Starscream

    Aside from the face, I hope you mean... I could not take that scowl on Starscream, the smirk fits him too well.

    Ok, cool. You just never know with Hasbro. I'm quite tempted by Hasbro's repaint, but since I MP SS, I'm reluctant to pay another $100 (or whatever he ends up costing) for the same character, even if the colours are way better.

    Actually MP-SS has grown on me quite alot since I first saw pics. He does look much better in person.

    Although, after seeing some more pics of MP Skywarp, he looks pretty dam good too. Ahhhh, more temptation.

    I think you mean they're using the Hasbro Starscream mould for Skywarp. I'm pretty sure the changes were mandated by US toy safety regulations.
