    Ok, so here's the deal, I have enough money to buy MP-03 Starscream but I'm not so sure about buying him now that I've read everyone's feedback on here.

    So here is my problem.

    Do I buy Him or one of the following?

    BTA Red Alert
    BTA Broadblaster
    Superman Movie Collectors set
    Polar Lights 36" Enterprise-A Model
    Captain Kirk in chair collectors figure

    So help me out, what do you guys think I should get?

    BTA Alert had a fairly high fault rate too. :-(

    I think he is the best out of those listed, he's okay if you don't handle him too much. The problem is he is incredibly fragile. Don't have any of the other stuff to comment. Have you checked out the thread in the TF Feedback forum?

    I would get MP-3, but thats mainly because SS is one of my favorite characters.

    I'd preorder Kremzeek instead! ;) 

    I havent bought MP SS for 2 reasons, the colors hurt my head and because of all the problems people have had with them.

    MP03

    It's the best transformable jet ever made. And that's even taking into account that I hate the colors! The mold is just that good.

    I'd get MP-03. Alot of the people that rag on how bad he is don't even own him.

    MP03.. why settle for less? I am sure it's not as bad as some people made it out to be. I have it in box now but sooner or later I'll open it and see what all the fuss is about.

    Sometimes I think I'd like to get an MP-03 but then I remember the colors and change my mind.

    Despite some of the QC issues with MP-03, he is pretty sweet.
    The colors aren't so bad in person.

    Out of those... I'd say BTA Alert. He's just pure sexiness. But if you have the option, buy it in person so you can check for paint chips and stuff first. Personally I was a but underwhelmed with Starscream.

    Unless it HAS to be a TF, I agree with the above.

    Otherwise, go with MP-03.
