    Just transformed mine. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Def a challenge but also really smart. Got minimal paint rub but nothing bad and no scratches I could see. Only part I don't like in vehicle mode is the back of the cock put never seems to sit right and the visible head syndrome lol. But overall, such an incredible figure! I

    Some people don't need to afford both because they know they'll be able to sell the one they don't want for full retail. Honestly, that annoys the hell out of me. Taking one of the limited number of figures just to try it out and then, even though opening and fiddling with it depreciates the value, they still sell it for full price to some sucker who can't find it new and is for some reason willing to pay full price for a used figure.

    If you turn his head around before transforming him, you don't get the visible face in the cockpit. Of course you now have a visible face from underneath but which one is more important really?

    I tried, really tried! It just doesn't want to rotate into a position that will allow the leg to move up more. That joint can rotate so the leg can be kinked in other directions than to the side but it is limited.
    Getting the discoloring started early I see. Are you trying to match discoloration with IT-01?:D  looks cool under that light, the red really lights up like neon!

    I have both and I really like the DS option. That said I prefer to have MP-52 next to the other main Decepticons on the shelf due to it not being bigger that what I expect Acoustic Wave will be and it's not really bothering me next to MP-36 or MP-13. I size it up against the carbots and he's still much taller than them, and my gauge on it is do I think that mold could throw Jazz as is done in the season 1 opening credits. I feel it is big enough to do so so I'm good with the Takara size. I am however thinking of making a DS Seeker shelf tho, as Crimson Wings is really a keeper and I expect the same for Skywarp and Thundercracker's repaint.

    Thanks for the input. So far I've had good luck with TFDIRECT, especially when it comes to responsive communication. They even shipped out my order pretty fast via China post, only getting stuck at CN customs, which I can't really fault the seller. Here's hoping it'll get cleared soon

    Hmm, don't know what the other stand is, I'm just on the lookout for the flightpose ones. They're supposed to be available again in 4th quarter 2021 sometime.

    No worries. Your display looks great tho, and I think it was you who said the MT fit in pretty well with Crimson. Have to agree looking at those pics. Nice work!

    That wasn't me lol... They look fine together in pictures now that you mention it... But in hand, DS is in a whole different league. It's like the difference between MP10 and MP44 or TE01. If you have MT Seekers and get the DS Screamer, you're going to want to complete the trio. So just beware you're probably going to fork over the cash for a matching set... He's that good.

    Yeah I have the MT seekers, Crimson, and MP -52 and MT doesn't hold up to either of them in my opinion in hand, but I have my Skywarp in an action pose and Thundercracker in jet mode, which offsets the aesthetic a bit. I compared all three and sadly with my MT Meteor always dropping his hip skirt it was really a no contest from the start o_O . (the transformation doesn't stay locked in)

    Weirdly looks like weathering. I mean on the bright side, at least you could see it as battle damage?

    That does look the "best" out of the paint rubbing so far.
