    Like the title says, do you prefer them tilted forward like in the cartoon, or do you like them tilted back like the G1 toys?
    I personally prefer them tilted back so they are not totally vertical like in the cartoon, i think it looks weird. I've always wanted to know what is the prevailing sentiment.
    Thanks for the posts guys.

    I like it straight just like the G1 toy. Reason? With the intake tilted forward, it's block his side view as well portion of his head. It not practicle to fight your enemy if you are blinded by your side view tower/intake.

    Reality is neither position is accurate to the cartoon. In the cartoon, Starscream intake starts off straight like the G1 toy and then curve/taper at the top. MP11, assuming you tilt the intake forward, the base of the intake is curved/tilted but then it's straight at the top. Kind of the reverse in the toon. Also, MP11 instruction manual at the transformation section going from the robot to jet, didn't really saying anything about the intake, so there's no right or wrong.

    I tilt them forward since it is designed to do that on the figure, but honestly, I don't really care either way.

    Tilted forward for me. It differentiates them just enough in my mind from being just two jet intakes stuck on his shoulders. I know that may seem silly to some, but it makes him more cartoon accurate to me. Not that I'm all about cartoon accuracy. I usually like an aesthetic somewhere in between.

    I didn't even know the mold could do it until MP-11. Up until then, I'd obviously left them straight. Since, I've tilted them forward for the more cartoon accurate appearance. The years of looking at them prior to tilting has made it hard to adjust to the new look, but as I have no (little) nostalgia for the G1 toys compared to the cartoon, I'll almost always default that way.

    I thought it was a very cool extra touch they made on the MP seeker design to get toon accuracy, so I'm all for it. And I think it looks better too.

    But I do leave my iGear coneheads intakes straight up, which is toon accurate for them and helps differentiate them a bit more from the seeker trio.
