    The MPM is certainly nice and it seems like this SS Hide is borrowing a little from that engineering.

    I'm a little weary though only because MPM is ridiculously expensive (for me at least) and it would be hard to put down money for it.

    I'm not saying it's right but that's why I'm leaning towards an upscaled and improved KO only because it would be a little bit cheaper than a standard MPM. Who knows though maybe I could find an MPM on a good discount. I guess I'd still have to see what the MPM looks like with movie bots from the '09 era as well.

    If they'd have just made the bumper hinged and fold flatter on each side...'shrug'. Still not a deal killer for me I don't think. I sold my old voyager ironhide and still regret it (I think from the 07 movie)

    There's been a long debate about that.

    Sorry I should have clarified. I meant an oversize of the Studio Series version. I feel like that would still end up being cheaper than the MPM and fall more into my price range. My bad.

    Does anyone else have this problem with Studio Series Starscream where one of the platforms that hold the arms up securely in robot mode is pulled out of position when it’s tapped in with the rest of the back section?

    54D5B3E1-A238-4A76-8868-4AD8D3E0C6DF.jpeg EBA70748-EA41-40D1-B84F-AC9246F8DDBF.jpeg D68BD8BB-F947-4727-B16A-8D7A396A7BEB.jpeg E033E4C6-6DAC-4388-A3B7-75A2E6ECD3EE.jpeg

    I’ve fiddled with it a ton and I can’t seem to fix this issue.

    Can’t recall as I’m not near my figure right now, but mine might have that issue? Idk, I never noticed it because it doesn’t pose an problems for me. Everything tabs in securely enough or stays in place if anything

    They all look so good together, I’m crying. Hopefully we can get the whole squad in MPM form like that soon.

    I do, I know exactly what you are talking about and from what you have shown. The starscream I bought does the same thing. the left arm sit a little lower because it doesn't have that "ledge" sticking out far enough to hold on to. I haven't done anything yet to improve it. Not in any particular rush but I too would like to know if there is a way to improve that. My best guess is to use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat the sliding post of the wings and bend it slightly enough to help catch the shoulder but it doesn't bother me enough to risk damaging the figure.

    I can see myself buying the set if it was $15-20, but anything higher is not my tempo.
