    That makes sense. Decepticons 2.0 though, featuring more Seabeasts? Megatron has it out for this Neptune fella. Fishy line-up is all I'm saying.

    Not sure about that. It seems like it helped mine, but it might be coincidence. But nonetheless, keep it mind take care when handling that gold piece.

    No it isn't. You just need to be careful folding the base clamp/connector of the "star".

    Just opened up Star Convoy and only messed with the cab as I'm leaving for work soon, and all I can say right now is "yup, those are some loose legs right there".

    I really hope the legs of his combined mode end up being tighter...:redface2:

    Man, that stinks to hear about the star and legs. I've been saying since the initial reveal that I thought the separate star wasn't the right choice. That instead they should have retooled the large chest panels with the star sculpted directly onto them and the correct G1 toy style chest windows. Now I'm debating wether I want to cancel my preorder. I imagine I don't have much time to make that decision. I'm thinking I might rather spend that money on the toy color Refraktor or the Rainmaker 3-pack.

    I got mine today. I can report that while the small robot is a bit on the loose side (but its not too bad), the Super Robot is rock solid for me. No mold degradation! I turned the Star Piece around too and it sits pretty solid now. He certainly is a looker!

    But its my first time with that mold and he kinda feels cheap. POTP engineering i guess..

    Legs are loose on my small cab bot, but I have no regrets about getting Star Convoy. Having him, the toy Refraktor and Rainmaker set, barring any character attachements, I like Star Convoy the most FWIW

    It really helps him stand out from the original use of the mold too.

    Here he is again with all the G1 universe Autobot leaders. Once MP Lio Convoy comes out, this shot will be complete.

    Does this mean Armada Prime is cancelled? I really wanted that Super Pants Prime.

    Money was tight for a while there, so I never thought to drop a pre-order on the Seacons. Is there anywhere still offering orders on the first two? Most places are sold out of them. I can find the last 4 on TFSource, but that's the best I've found yet.
