    How many of MW Starscream's missiles are legitimately used? (ie. loaded in a launcher or something?)

    I'm assuming it's 6 (King Atlas, being a modern fig in a sense, would only come with the bare minimum) but I've never seen the mold in person, so I don't know what's used and what sits in a box.

    Thanks

    My one has enough missiles to fill both wing bays and the posts under each wing.

    Unfortunately, that isn't very helpful... I've never seen it in person (or Skyquake or King Atlas). I feel really dumb... I haven't even found any pics of the underside of it.

    2 pegs on each wing, 1 peg on each leg, and the bomb droppers hold 5 each. I believe Skyquake comes with hand-held launchers that werent included with other releases, so he would have even more missiles

    Thanks.

    Now the question is... Why did King Atlas only come with 6 missiles...?

    He's got a total of 15 missiles on Skyquake - 4 for each bomb bay (8 total), 2 for each wing (another four, up to 12), two at the front on the main nose (14) and one to go on the handgun (15).

    They can all fit in quite nicely, you need to make sure the bomb bays are halfway between two cells to get the last two to stay in.

    King Atlas only has six, since that's enough to attach to the body or to load the bomb bays without the issue of aligning the last one on each bay. I guess it's enough for the gimmick, and the posts are to store them when it is not in use?

    Thanks, Sol... It almost makes sense now. I think.
