    Which throne is that? I recall one of the KO MP36s was promo'ed on one. Looks to be a good MP size

    Is anyone else having an issue with their Meteor? Mine's waist keeps sliding to the right a little in robot mode.

    Didn't someone get a Meteor with a wonky engine casing, and as such, can't transform him into alt mode?

    But, I agree, this model seems to be doing well from a QC point of view. Shame about the wings et al. needing some 3D printing love.

    Wow, just wow. The filled wings and the butt flap mod really finishes Meteor. Any chance these mods can be purchased??

    Superb upgrades. It gets to show how just a small couple of modifications can make such a HUGE difference. I wouldn't hesitate to get those for my Meteor :thumb

    Just got my Meteor today. Cracked it open and yeow they are COLD. Another few hours before I can play with them. Can’t defrost fast enough. Fast shipping from Baba. Guess this means it’s time to print the wing fillers and mods

    The hollow wings don't bother me at all and I thought the ass flap didn't either but that is awesome. Well played sir. Well played.

    We will have to assess the coneheads separately but it looks like everyone needs painted shin thrusters and wing fillers for three seekers and probably six painted buttflap replacement mechanisms. Notice the tabbing of the top and bottom parts of the buttflap improvement. Simply genius G1TransformerMod. My wallet is open.

    I finally bought a new camera. It's a bit of a learning curve for me, but I'll get the hang of it.

    When people told me that the MP11 mold was outdated I never quite understood what they where talking about. Today I received Meteor and boy did it hit me... of you see this in hand you'll know. Pictures, how well taken as they may be, just doesn't substitute having it in hand.

    Formfutura's light grey Titan X (which I had for other things) ABS filament is a close color match, red parts are just a commonly available red ABS filament.

    Great.

    Minor nitpick, would have been nice to have more of a v-shape on the lower part of the butt instead of a straight line.

    Also with better buttflap, improved arms and hands, filler wings and a new face he becomes truly great. Also even more minor than that, the shin thrusters are also a very nice improvement.

    Shame mt couldn't have worked this out before releasing this the way he is now. That's 3 great looking figures with stupid mistakes that should have been improved before release (desp knee and feet issues, Jazz with his issues and now this guy). It's mindblowing how they can mess up otherwise great designs by some stupid oversights.

    I just bought this figure and have mixed feeling about it..

    Is it just me or are the plastics feel really cheap? Like they feel fragile and not on par with the latest Takara's MP.

    The wings seem like they can't be fully tabbed to the back and often fall off.

    The feets ratchet are SCARY tight, to the point where I feel like I'm going to break it.
