    The Element of Clement: Transformers Henkei Seekers

    Overall I am very satisfied with the 2 pieces. Tight joints, good paint jobs, vibrant plastics etc.

    My only grip would be my Thundercracker's launchers just sit on his shoulders in robot mode. Yes, it just sits there. A slight tilt and it falls off. No problems with Skywarp on that part.

    Just pure love to see the trio together.

    I seem to recall similar issues reported with Acid Storm. I don't have any Classics Seekers handy to check, but I think you can just tighten one of the upper arm screws to fix the loose launcher problem.

    Must have been my flash. :p 
    Looks of the same shade of black in person to me, so I guess no worries. :)

    It's just the different plastic types reflecting light differently. A lot of similar effects are more prominent (especially with flash photography) than they are in real life.

    Many people from foreign forum reported the same problem on Thundercracker's launchers pegs. QC issue... and this is expensive figure too... totally unacceptable....

    Another one in a Japanese blog.. http://blog.goo.ne.jp/yuki_bune/e/d78366916f25205d2ddda2e7522ba175

    You do realise how many times this mould has been used now, don't you?
    Classics Starscream
    Classics Ramjet
    Classics Skywarp
    Classics Thundercracker
    Classics Thrust
    Classics Dirge
    Classics Acid Storm
    Henkei Starscream
    Henkei Ramjet
    Henkei Thundercracker
    Henkei Skywarp
    A minor amount of mould degradation is inevitable.

    If they were $9.99 each, they wouldn't be Japanese exclusives. For a start, they cost more than that in JAPAN, and that's before shipping and any seller markup.
    Besides, a few seconds with a very tiny amount of clear nail polish and it's not even an issue.
