    Please only respond if you own Masterpeice Starscream.

    Do you have any QC problems with your MP-03?
    I.E. Breaking joints, severe stress marks, wrong pieces, etc. I want to tally the percentage just to get an idea. I got mine today, and have had no problems so far, but have only transformed him once.

    If the answer is yes, please include your problem. I will make a results post after a few days with percentages.

    If you have no flaws, please say that as well.

    So far there's stress marks forming in the flaps on the wings that fold underneath, and the front landing gear gets stuck. The rear landing gears are a joke.

    Other than those flaws, I love the sucker

    Got mine last Tues. No wrong pieces.

    Pieces (shoulder kibble) were falling off the first time I transformed it. They won't stay attached, obviously a half ass job on that part.

    The regualr face has a scrape across the mouth (small but in a focal area)

    The chest covers that flip up to reveal the missles are loose on first transformation. The left one is not even aligned propery and looks a little crooked.
    They do not snap into place at all, they flop open easily.

    A single stress mark appeared on first transformation and I supported the joints with my fingers as I slowly and carefully bent the joint. There was no way to avoid the stress mark. And no way to shave off material to loosen the joint.

    Last night one of my wing joint cracked in 2 places. you can see more stress marks forming around that joint. Its only a matter of transformations before it breaks of completely.

    After only one transformation, the white lining paint stripes were scraping off everywhere and continue to get worse. The supposed "battle damage" to the white stripes eventually just ends up looking like a shitty paint job.

    I emailing BBTS now to try and get the broken wing joint repaired or replaced.

    1) Stress marks on wing joints
    2) Right breast missle cover extremely loose out of box
    3) Left shoulder doesn't click but still holds pose, but slightly loose
    4) Front portion of canopy does not line up with rest of canopy
    5) Radar array broken off straight out of box
    6) Obligatory paint blemishes :horse:  , not too bad, but there is a big blob of white paint on one of the disruptor cannons

    Other than that, it's real tiny for the price, but a cool toy.

    Paint blemishes (the stripes on the shoulders), and a large stressmark on the inside of the right shoulder. That's it though.

    I've got stress marks and a crack on the wing joints, other than that, no real problems. Some small paint stuff, but nothing sprigns to mind as noteworthy, besides the fact that their is a fingerprint on the inside of the left engine cover, from the paint wash.

    Golgo, be sure to let us know what BBTS says about the crack...I got mine from BBTS, and though I love him, the crack fucking sucks.

    Well, today I got an email form BBTS asking if the part is replaceable. But the crack is on the wing joint that is part of the main body on the back so I don't have any idea if you can even disassemble it that far and I'm not going to try.

    So I basically said that in the repy, we'll see if I get another email tomorrow. I would rather just replace the parts, but the way this thing is assembled, with the screw covers glued in, it doesn't look very easy to get at the main body piece. So I don't know what will happen.

    Wow! I suddenly feel very lucky! No paint errors or stress marks on mine, that I've seen... the only issue is that the left breast missile cover is slightly mis-aligned... which seems to be a common problem from other photos I've seen of the mold.

    1) Stress marks all over the wing joints
    2) Paint blemishes/scratches on the white lines
    3) Canopy/Fuselage area doesn't connect to the waist piece
    4) Right chest piece missile pod is assembled wrong, preventing it from closing.

    Cool toy, I like the designs and the transformation, but very disappointing.

    Ok, I would like to add to mine. I did a really careful look over. On his right wing, there is a smudge of glue o_O 
    It's not that visible unless you are looking for it, and it's on the back/underside anyways.

    good over all, but noticed some stress marks on the wing area towards the shoulders, and the usual white stripes scratched, one of the panels covering up the screws fell out during first transformation, one of the rear landing gear was a bitch to flip open, as well as the front landing gear, but nothing major, certainly no cracks (yet I hope)
