    Has there really be solid confirmation of YM reissuing their Coneheads? And if so, do we know of any changes compared to the previous release?

    ShowZ has the reissue in Stock.
    Yes Model YM03 MP-11 Starscream

    They say it’s the same as the first batch, so nothing new.

    Where does it say it is the same as the first batch? I didn't see that on the page.

    Has anyone had these issues with their KBB Skywarp? I got mine in the mail yesterday and while transforming him I noticed his waist piece was cracked. Additionally, the right screw that holds the right side of the wings to the metal slide snapped off while getting everything in position and lined up. While I might be little ham-fisted, I don't believe I applied more pressure than usual for the piece to snap off like this. I also noticed his right leg is missing the ratchet which makes the whole leg really floppy. Other than these issues, the character is solid. I just wish I had gotten a non-defective figure as my first AliExpress order. Hoping I can contact the seller about replacement parts...

    Bad. Think it says 'no step' or something all along the edge of the wings. Put me off SW - went with KBB (& for one of the previous posters, i had no issues with my KBB SW)

    Outside of the tampos present only on the 2nd run, the quality is ouitstanding, much better than Takara. Plus there are lots of accessories. 2nd run YM Thundercracker is the same way.

    Ah, so they're adding in the MP-03 style tampos as well.

    FWIW I am still really pleased with my SW and TC despite the tampos. Not very noticeable in robot mode. Which is how they are displayed. I still plan to remove them, but haven't gotten around to it.

    I absolutely love the additional tampos on MP-11 Greenscream as a throwback to the original Takara MP-3. Not sure I'd want them on my Skywarp and Thundercracker. With that said, I'm happy to have a first run SW and will need to hunt down a first run TC.

    Big thanks to Show Z for the exceptionally priced Greenscream and the secure shipping.

    I agree. It needs to be lightened. Yes those hands are available.

    They sure do offer such hands.

    All of the KFC seeker/conehead hands are an extremely tight fit on the YM/BB7 seeker/coneheads. However this can be fixed very easily and quickly. Just using a simple sanding stick or similar to sand the peg hole on the KFC hand for a bit (about a minute for each hand) until you get just the right fit. Just don't sand too long or the hands will fit extremely loose.
