    Sentinel: I got a plan, Optimus! We need Energon!

    Optimus: Aren’t we all, Sentinel?

    Sentinel: I sense you have doubts with me! Have some FAITH for Primus’ sake!

    My Leader Starscream has a broken pin on his back, with the panel behing his head. Is that it?

    I’m torn because I’ve wanted to rebuy that figure for a little while now, but if there’s a studio series version coming then I’d rather wait for that. If I’m gonna be waiting a year or more though then it might be worth it to track down the original. I mostly want it to have a complete 5-movie run of Megatrons next to each other.

    20200520_135829.jpg anyone else have difficulty getting this figure to stand up straight and even?

    (Edit: so I found the issue, my copy has a QC issue in the waist to where one side is jutting out, wont lock in or compress evenly all around so I'll have to just get a different copy etc)

    if you zoom in on the waist area in this pic you can see it.

    I meant RoTF Leader Prime. I already have SS44, which affected my suggestion.

    I was the same way but I found out he didn't cost that much so now I have a stand in for the inevitable Studio Series version.

    You need to open up the torso starting with the back panels to get the necessary clearance. HPIM0045.JPG

    My mistake, as for RotF Leader Prime mold...it is great mold for its time, (I had 2 versions) but it did not age that well in my opinion since there are no 5mm posts on hands. It does scales well with Masterpiece figures. So go for it if you can find the right price and you have Movies Masterpiece to go with.

    Well, all of these pictures make me feel better about my Sentinel, I see at least two other examples of the waist slightly separating on the right with a gap. No matter how I put him together in robot mode (tabbed in both places on the back, or the buttflap so his waist swivels) he has that gap. A design flaw, I guess.

    Try pushing the crotch into the torso from the bottom. That gets mine tabbed in every time!
