    For those that got him already, does his nosecone still fall off during transformation or has that been remedied since the test shots?

    Those weren't test shots those were finished final products. And it doesn't fall off, it unclips because they deliberately designed it to so it doesn't break is my understanding. I don't think it effects either mode at all.

    It doesnt fall off, but it does come off relatively easily.

    Man I hate it when they're upside-down in robot mode.

    At least you don't have to worry about the Decepticon logos on the bottoms of the wing...

    Exactly this. You can transform him without it coming off if you're careful. I've managed it in both directions; it's a little easier going from bot to jet. MT supposedly designed it that way so that the part comes off instead of breaking. Another use, if you're cool with partsforming, is to remove the nose and clean up his back in robot mode.

    Yes in the cartoon, no on the G1 toy. So technically either way is correct.

    I am avoiding that thread. lol ;) 
    Mine has stayed on so far. :) 

    Yes. I am hoping I can do a longer stop motion story with him where he changes them. That is why I put them on this way.

    I don't mind partsforming when it's intentional, or if it doesn't affect a major part of the figure.
