    So, the left leg just fell off my KBB Thundercracker. I bought it new about a month ago and it was transformed once. The plastic is complete crap on these things. Not purchasing another KBB products. I was just about to get their Skywarp, so it looks like I will have to search Ebay for a TaKara or Yes Model version, for way more money.

    Yeah. I can relate.

    I only purchased one KBB. Every other MP-11 that I have are Yes Model/BB7 variants and NONE are floppy messes like the Official Takara's and none have broken.

    Nooooo...don't say that or the pro-KBB crowd might show up and acost you, lol. :p  Kidding aside though, same experience here. My KBB's were NOT good. Still have Skywarp but he's in a closet. My Yes Model are so much better...

    Just got my Gold Screamer too. He's... Good. Not perfect but decent. Will probably touch up the worst affected areas with gold paint, won't be an exact match but will be better than it is. IMG_20190925_134622.jpg

    All in all, I'm happy with what I paid for, will probably Transform him one day when drunk and regret it forever. I'll post photos when it happens but I don't drink often so don't hold your breath. Even if I did, still don't hold your breath waiting, it would take me 10 minutes transform, you'd die!

    @mcart Hey if you're able to open his head up and remove the eyes,paint them Metallic red. I think it would look Dope!

    Great suggestion.
    Yeah, the eye are a separate piece. But you need to split the head open, the head is held with a bit of glue. You’ll need to run through hot water to open. @JPrime & @Dark Seeker posted this a long time ago.

    I did it with one of my seekers :)

    @transformer_78 On my BB7 TC,it wasn't glued at all while the other 2 were. Funny but I always forget to the hot water trick. I really wanted to pull off the Chrome eye look of MT products but couldn't find any Chrome paint.

    Yeah, maybe so. However if you want G1 toon accuracy the eyes should be gold colored.

    I sold on my regular Yes Model Seekers but don't recall any face/head options. Only the skinny headed original MP-03 Seekers had the smirk face as I recall?

    Stop motion transformation sequence (forward and reverse). Can be used for YM.

    Just got KBB Thundercracker. Very sad.
    FIgure came in 2 pieces in the box. The screws on the torso sliding section were broken.
    Also, both shoulders, elbows, fingers, the HIPS and left knee were cracked and broken.

    This is all the broken bits.
    The box has no damage on it either. Looks like they just threw a broken figure into the box to sell it.

    I also got KBB Skywarp and he has no problems.

    Ouch :(  I might have some spare parts from when I customized seekers. Specifically the Hasbro TC. I'll have to look on Wednesday to see if I have any you can use.

    Thanks. But I think it is too far gone. It needs almosr enough spare parts to make a full figure.
    I'll just get a refund and buy something else.

    If you change your mind, let me know :) 

    And if they let you keep it, can I scavenge some parts off of it? :lol

    WOW? Sorry to hear that please tell us who the seller is with a link if possible so we'll all be aware.
    Are you gonna do a refund claim?? I hope you get your money back.
    The only KBB seeker I can really recommend (at least among from the non-conehead seekers) is KBB Starscream.
    I'd recommend going the Yes Model route for thundercracker. @Craigmcgowan1984 can also attest to YM's superior quality.
