The joints are way too tight. I'm always very careful with my figures and used every trick I know to loosen them, but no dice. Trying to bend the knee resulted in the small blue circle with the prong on it (on the outside of each knee) to snap off of the lower leg and stay connected to the screw in the joint.

Fresh out of package, mine had a *very* stiff left knee. I had to be very careful with loosening it, because I could clearly see that it would snap the leg off if I tried to move it normally.

PROS

-a new Starscream, dammit! (I'm a Starscream completist)
-headsculpt (and wicked light piping for the eyes)
-multiple weapon mounting options
-weapons can combine
-spinning barrels on the weapons
-clear canopy (could have been lazily painted)
-ankle tilt
-gerwalk mode

CONS

-on the small side
-feels and looks a bit cheap
-somewhat lazy transformation
-so-so paint job (some blue missing on one of the feet)
-floating shoulders
As one to the main ones who initially whined about the size of this figure before I got it.

He's actually a 16th larger than his Classics counterpart.

That's not to say that I wouldn't like for him to be larger it's just that he is still better than I initially gave him credit for. But paying 5-6 bucks more than what I did 5 years ago the FOC figure still doesn't justify it much I guess.

The paint is a little on the cheap side.

But it's still light years ahead of those "Prime" figures we're constantly bombarded with so beggars wont be too choosy for now...

I don't. But on mine, the ankle tilts are terrifyingly tight.
