    120 was the current going price. Sure it was in the 80s forever before. Taking it for 99 before it comes back covered in tampos

    Good point. It looks like the yes model seekers/coneheads are all getting reissued based on what we've seen so far. YM SW and TC got reissued with those awful tampos. So it is quite possible that the coneheads may get tampos when they are reissued. I've been holding out on picking up Yes Model starscream bc i don't care for the green Scream version and I'm not the biggest fan of the deco and panel lines on YM03. According to tf-direct und uncle billy, YM-03 Coronation Starscream reissue should be dropping this month. The question is what changes to the deco, if any, will be made. I hope we see the Takara MP11 Coronation deco.

    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.

    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.
