    Got mine today. Other than a few very minor paint issues everything is ok I think (faces are ok). He looks great but he also feels great in hand - really reminds me of TE-01 in this matter but even more premium. But the scratches are unavoidable I think and I'm already getting used to them. There's just so much paint for that price, maybe if this was 180-200$ 3P figure but not BMB we all know and love :lol

    Not sure if this "don't touch him so the paint can cure" will help with anything but I will probably have time to transform him during the weekend :)

    Agree! :D 

    No that's the worst. You keep checking the tracking over and over and every time a truck goes by you're at the window 100 time a day and go "Not it....darn..."

    I couldn't resist waiting to transform DS-001 and the good news is that no paint wear was incurred during the process.

    Personally, I love involved transformation sequences but DS-001 feels like its transformation process needed at least one more pass before finalization for production. I can see glimpses of pretty interesting elements of the transformation as I go through it but it doesn’t feel polished.

    The alt mode looks great from above (the sculpted details are great on the gray) but it's weaker from the side where the sides of the vehicle beneath the wings do not look clean due to gaps.

    Black Mamba/Aoyi Mech/Zeus Toys/Mechanical Alliance/Infinite Transformation etc known mostly for movie KOs but also produces stuff (or buys designs) under Transform Element now Deformation Space :)  Their quality is 50/50 but they're usually cheaper than other 3Ps

    Yup. My original mp-11 is coronation Starscream. MT Meteor will probably be my jet version now.

    Would be ace if they released Thundercracker and Skywarp versions before TT does.

    I was surprised by how nice the box is. I don't recall anyone pointing it out in reviews.

    Here I thought it was Wolverine guest starring in an issue of SQUEE by Jhonen Vasquez, where they both decided to take up graffiti as a hobby.

    Received my two copies today - all looks well, though I have yet to transform either. Really solid look and feel.

    On a shelf next to the new MP and Meteor, this dude blows the other two away on the shelf-presence scale. That said, I'll probably be grabbing the MPs for the remaining two OG Seekers over the coming months as well as the inevitable versions from this outfit.

    My copy should arrive tomorrow. I honestly don't even know why I ordered one, I recently sold off my entire MP collection and I'm not a big Starscream fan. But fooked if I'm not looking forward to getting it.

    This guy will be my first MP seeker and my first MP Decepticon, for that matter. When it comes to $100+ figures, I don’t do repaints…so this will probably be the only MP seeker I ever get!

    God damn, that looks like hawt sex!

    I wish the price were lower (it's $140+ now), but I will probably bite the bullet, and if I like it, I'll buy their goddamn Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    So very tired of buying seekers over and over.

    It does though right. Sitting on my lunch break looking at it and trying to talk myself in to getting it again. If only I could buy this one and not want to replace tc and sw too then maybe

    Mine arrived today and it's missing the blue paint app on the lower half of the left elbow joint. It's not ideal, but it's not the end of the world either. Other than that it looks fantastic.

    I didn't have any trouble getting the guns in. They just needed to be angled properly so that the peg was straight before twisting them in.
