    It's really pretty great, huh? I love Meteor.
    But I did put a cast of the MP-11 head on it that I painted. I do like that a lot better.

    Meh. I ended up putting on JReams chest fans and shin thrusters and a MP-11 head and some KFC seeker hands, and I thought, what the hell, why not add on the wing fillers too.

    It's the one thing I did to mod Meteor that really doesn't make much difference. It's nice but I barely notice. I did not have a real problem with the hollow wings in the first place, so ymmv.

    I have the filler for all three of them, and while I like this mold a lot, I don't think they make any real difference.
    I would have been much happier with a face with a lighter color as an upgrade piece option.

    Thanks. He really looks amazing. They all do. I have @Unicron9 to thank for all of them. He even created a G1 version of the Transformers Animated character Slipstream from Meteor.

    Thanks godaiking for the head adapter. Now my Masterpiece Starscream is complete! Starscream has never look so good. Hopefully this is motivation for any of you still holding off getting MP-44. ;)

    So I presume it’s not transformable?

    Sure it is, just need to slide the head off the adapter. Similar to a gun being removed. ;)

    WOW! Nice display! Glad you like the attachment.

    If anyone's interested, I have a few more left (just casted a few more). Private message me if interested.

    Got mine as well. Works terrific- it's nice to have that Starscream head secure on there!

    Curious though- could the adapter be made taller so that it gives him a slight "neck" or something so that his head doesn't look like it's almost just sitting on his shoulders?

    On mine, I just raised the peg up ever so slightly to give it a slight neck. Thats why I posted pics of mine here to show as an example.

    Does MP 11's head fit on this figure without modification?

    Yes it does. It sits forward pretty far and is quite floppy though without modification. I took a dremel and carved out part of the MP11 head and it now works perfectly for me.

    I vaguely recall Meteor couldn't transform with MP-11's head attached? I may be wrong though.

    Seeing all these pics with the MP-44 head attached is actually making me slightly impatient for a KO of 44. I was pretty much going to get one out of a sense of completionism, and because I quite like the finish on the new trailer, but seeing that it comes with such a nice Seeker head as well, is actually making me moderately interested in it. Not nearly enough to pay full price for the official, but it does make the prospect of a reasonably priced KO seem more tempting. Even better if the KO maker, or another company, is able to provide three Seeker heads.

    A three pack of the MP-44 Starscream head, possibly with different expressions, would be a lovely option. I can see someone doing that and providing two different kits - one with an MP-11 neck attachment and one with a Meteor neck attachment.
    I'll be interested to see what @godaiking comes up with as the finish he's getting on those adaptors is really nice for a 3D printed part.

    I think you are right. I haven't transformed mine since putting the MP11 head on, but I believe it's too big to transform with it on there. At least the head is easy to pop on and off.

    got my head adapter from @godaiking for the mp44 head too! Came last week but I’ve been distracted by Canadian Thanksgiving :D

    I’ve messed around with the neck height but also find Meteor’s ball joint too short...would be very interested in an add-on neck to give him a little better articulation as well as head placement! Definitely would be an improvement
