    I recall seeing where they were thinking about it. It's not like they wouldn't sell

    For those that have him, did YM/BB7 Skywarp come packaged in robot mode?

    Found a chinese review of Yes-Model Sunstorm. Translation from a friend: No issues over all. Very awesome!

    I created a thread about this over on the TF Toy Discussion but I also hope I can get help here since it is about the MP-11 mold...

    After all these years I finally got an MP Starscream from BBTS today. It is the latest coronation reissue. When I took it out of the box I found that the center cockpit/torso will not lock into the peg on the waist. It will slide down the rails and stop just shy of the peg and the slot from touching each other. I've already transformed it into jet and back to robot, fiddling with the side pieces and everything else, and it still will not lock together. I don't understand what is preventing it from tabbing into place? Everything seems to look like they're in their proper places, too. But again, I just cannot tab the center cockpit torso into that stupid black tab! What am I doing wrong?

    I just don't see anything physically getting in the way of letting the track slide down completely and peg into the nose of the canopy It's weird!. Anyone know if there is a way to fix this before I contact BBTS and tell them what a steaming pile of sh** this thing is? Thanks.

    If anything, it's made me appreciate the two YM MP's I have even more. If that stupid torso would peg in to the waist, it would be a solid connection with no floppiness. They did seem to fix that issue with this most recent reissue. But dang, this thing will not connect, and I refuse to put too much force in it.

    I gave up and took pictures of the problem and emailed them to BBTS with a description of what is going on.

    Got my BB7 SS, he's great overall, but some panel lining is a bit sloppy and those black null rays tips are quite ugly looking
    With what can I wash the black paint off from the tips and correct the lining? Any advice?

    I thought the MP-03Ghost hands might suit, but they do not :(

    Got my Yes Model 03 Starscream just today. Lots of minor / major issues. No quality control at all this time! Shame on Y-M/BB7, I'm going to resale this crappy figure. I don't want it in my gorgeous collection.
    I can't believe it comes from the same guys behind the brilliant Skywarp and the very good Thundercracker... Very sad :(

    - The right panel of the leg always pops up / break away
    - The joints of the hips are partially loose
    - The right pectoral is floppy and completely loose, can't stop up at all
    - Megatron gun sucks: fat plastic, ugly colors and it is very difficult to pose it in Starscream's hands; the KBB one was perfect (and in diecast metal too!)
    - the grey marks on the withe sections are usually dropped
    - the coronation set is worse than the KBB one: cheaper plastics, awful faded colors
    - the peg of the legs is hard as Hell: You must pull with all Your power if you want to separate them
    - The cockpit does not close properly, as You can see in this photo, because of a faulty assembly:

    Should I go on?...

    The only good things are the great decepticon logo decals. All the rest is worse than the KBB model. No instructions, no collecting card, no colored box, a dark grey stand instead of a better black plastic stand... No good at all.
