    Can someone post a picture of him standing next to mp-13 Soundwave? I like that this Starscream is taller than mp-52, but I want to see how tall he is compared to Soundwave.

    I definitely want the second one and possibly the fourth one as well.

    No contest here! Even if I had G1 looking Meteor it wouldn't be enough to better the situation. I put Meteor in front of DS-01 to show the exact height difference a little better.

    Thanks. I now have a new appreciation for the MT Seekers. I feel their size is exactly right while the DS Starscream is a bit too big and MP-52 is just too small.

    It does look really good. It would be nice if someone would make a modern update of that Diaclone helicopter triple changer in front of Blitzwing.

    What is the "giant" on the shelf with the Omnibots and Jumpstarters? I recognize everything else except for that.

    It’s actually just a diaclone figure from the same era as the PowerDashers … found one fairly cheap and decided to add him in there since he had a similar vibe … the moment I need more space though, that would be something I’d move :lol

    Our other shelves are less similar. Here are a couple of photos, but the lighting upstairs is terrible at this time of night.

    (I need to find a better home for the Sparkabots and Throttlebots...)

    After receiving mine yesterday I was so excited to just sit down and play with my new toy but apparently family members didn't think that was fair so on my way home I get a call from my sister to help with her car. Got done and was home long enough to open and take a peak before my wife was sending me on an errands trip and getting called from my mother to help with hers. Finally heading back home around 10:30 pm when my father needs me to take of some things and animals at his house so right back out. When I get there my brother is in the middle of overhauling the front suspension on a Ford F-150 and required some help with points that were a hold up! 1:22 am, finally home, and crash!

    Anyway, so far he is absolutely amazing, everything I've been expecting from all the pics & vids leading to this point. My copy looks very nice with no paint blemishes anywhere that I can see in bot mode. My only gripe is how the outer leg panels tend to separate. It definitely is mainly due to how things are folded up inside the leg because with some subtle movements, it took pressure away and relaxed the panel quite a bit to allow for it to sit aligned and hold itself. I think it can be better because with light handling things still pop out of place slightly. I'm not sure why a retaining pin, tab, or edge wasn't used to make it secure. I think I will look into creating a fix for that. Also, as usual the null rays needed some sanding to go in because mine wouldn't go at all. I quickly went around them and added a drop of silicone which did the trick but still tighter than necessary so I'll work more on that later.

    Even with his height being pretty good I was wanting him to have a little more putting him closer to eye to eye with Megatron and Prime and now having him in hand I see I completely overlooked that his thrusters are double hinged and can be extended to give a bit more height plus using the hinges in the ab crunch to give slight extension and even with the way his neck works gives some. Using these 3 points, not to the extent that he looks funky, but to just give that slight bit more can achieve the look I was after!

    I can't wait for the other seekers! This is all i ever wanted/needed in an MP seeker!

    Nice!! The only areas I have “more than one” for alt mode are the movie bots that had targetmaster variants …

    Next time I get a chance I might play with switching some other G1 into alt modes and take some shots…

    I’m such an anal person in my organization normally that it would bother me to only have G1s in alt mode when an MP is present and bot mode otherwise … but who knows, I might actually like it

    While I don't like Meteor for various reasons he is better in the height department compared to the other molds on the market, but still to short for me. I guess the only bad part in reality is the price for Meteor and that is what's making me look down on him even more. These two are on very different levels of quality and engineering and the one that is lower in those areas is priced highero_O !

    I will say this, covid helped me throughout last year and early this year, but as people get back to things my excusable laziness, staying in playing with my toys is getting cut short!
