    I just got a prime starscream and his head fin is curved on the top, pointing to the side. Is there anyway to fix it so it's curved and pointing upwards like it's supposed to? It's not too bad but it's starting to drive me nuts

    What I did -

    Take head apart, remove fin through back of face. stick the fin in a heavy, thick book, leaving the nub with the little tabs on it sticking out. Let it sit for a couple days, maybe with a weight on top, near the edge that the fin is stuck in. Fin will be straighter when you take it out.

    Mine's not perfectly straight yet, I might try sticking it in with the left side facing up next, or leave it in there a while longer. It is a hell of a lot better than it started, though.

    Hey now, we're talking about fixing transformers here, not making Starscream Surprise Stew!
