    Crazy! These upgrades along with possibly a retool of the forearms/hands, new face/head sculpt and maybe those shin vents from a few post back and we have a starscream that would be unmatched for years. Would kill for something like a shadow fisher kit that included all of that.

    This is kind of the way MT rolls. They told you they were doing SW and TC when they revealed their coneheads. I think right now they are focused on getting out other figures and will continue to watch how well it sells. Despotron didn't sell the way they wanted or Galaxy Starscream so I think they want to be cautious. They are the last player in heavily hit markets.

    You can't fix the butt flap! That's his MP cred!

    +1. Or......and this is a long shot......MT includes these additional parts with their later seeker releases or separately. I think they have done something similar with Gundog.

    Which throne is that? I recall one of the KO MP36s was promo'ed on one. Looks to be a good MP size

    Is anyone else having an issue with their Meteor? Mine's waist keeps sliding to the right a little in robot mode.

    Didn't someone get a Meteor with a wonky engine casing, and as such, can't transform him into alt mode?

    But, I agree, this model seems to be doing well from a QC point of view. Shame about the wings et al. needing some 3D printing love.

    Wow, just wow. The filled wings and the butt flap mod really finishes Meteor. Any chance these mods can be purchased??

    Superb upgrades. It gets to show how just a small couple of modifications can make such a HUGE difference. I wouldn't hesitate to get those for my Meteor :thumb

    Just got my Meteor today. Cracked it open and yeow they are COLD. Another few hours before I can play with them. Can’t defrost fast enough. Fast shipping from Baba. Guess this means it’s time to print the wing fillers and mods

    The hollow wings don't bother me at all and I thought the ass flap didn't either but that is awesome. Well played sir. Well played.
