    Yea, I think it’s just an error in the cad image that didn’t get caught before the packaging was finalized

    I bought an Earthrise Starscream in anticipation of finding these guys, so I can have a set. Played around with Starscream, is actually a damn good toy. I'm impressed.

    I think it was planned at one point, there are 5mm ports under the chest in that area in jet mode that 5mm pegs on the arms go into for transformation to jet mode. Thing is, they're offset from where the nullrays could've plugged in on the underside. It's possible that the faux engine fans weren't initially part of the design in the chest, or they had 5mm ports in the middle of them initially but changed before final production.

    If you expand the hollow part of the peg to 3mm (turn it into a proper blast effects port), then you could attach the null rays to their 3mm nipples to look like the renders.

    Weird.

    On the bright side, looking for a place to mount his guns like the pic made me discover that he has blast effect compatible, chest missile homaging nipples.

    And who doesn’t love those? ;)  1B94FFF1-103B-4F13-979E-129AE59DF46B.jpeg

    Might give that a go for shits and gigs. Thickend the first bar on the cockpit on the chest today. Makes the mod look better. Not looking forward matching that silver on the new two when I do them. 20200521_145731.jpg

    It's mostly just clipping off the support over the chest canopy.

    I'm assuming the figure was heated in water and then hit with a handheld saw or garden shears with the nubs sanded down and cleaned.

    nothing that beautiful. Just chomped it out with aviation shears then filed away the excess and repainted the red with Testers red gloss.

    Nope it doesn't effect it at all. Actually makes it easier to transform too.

    It’s weirder than that. If you look at Thundercracker’s photo, you’ll see that the null ray attached to his chest has been flipped around backwards.

    Isn't that the case for both of their renders (plus Starscream's)?

    Wait, are you guys talking about that gap that appears between the shoulders and the upper body? Because that's the one thing keeping me from finding ER Starscream?

    They're talking about this. The person cut out this middle section on the chest that covers the top end of the cockpit.
