    I got MP Starscream, but the radar was broken, so I sent it back. Then I got my replacement, and one of the tabs is completely distorted, so it can't transform! Is it possible to even get an MP Starscream that's not messed up?

    I got a perfect one, that developed stress marks and cracked. BBTS replaced it with another perfect one, which I modified to avoid crack formation...he's been great ever since.

    How did you modify it to avoid the stress cracks? Mine came perfect, but has also developed the cracks. I'd like to fix my Skywarp when he gets here before he can break.

    On a side note, it looks like cracking is the most it will do. I noticed that after it cracked, it now allows the plastic to flex so it doesn't appear it will ever crack further or break all the way off.

    Mine has some stress marks, but works fine and everything else is just perfect.

    Mine came with a missing left thumb and one of the thingies attached to the air intakes (the first thing you move when transforming him from a jet) doesn't stay on.

    However, I bought it from some jerk-off in Chinatown that doesn't offer exchanges.

    I really want to believe you're right. A giant F-15 is too cool not to have.

    The clip that attaches the left wing on mine is cracked, and I agree with Insane Galvatron's assessment - after transforming him a couple of times since there is no sign of further cracking. IMO the design should have either been diecast there or built with a seam to allow for the flex the crack creates. If the clip had been diecast, though, it probably would have just cracked further up.

    MP Starscream is too ambitious for his own good, should have been a little simpler IMO.

    It's crap like this that keeps me from buying either Starscream or Skywarp.
