LOL 2nd pic is like Starscream in joy watching his son take flight for the 1st time
Issues aside, the only thing I feel lacking on MP-52 is better range of motion for some leg joints. More forwards/backwards ankle movement and unhindered thigh swivels would be appreciated. Waist swivel would’ve been cool. I don’t think the mold will be retooled to incorporate those but I’m okay with it as is.
However, unlike MP-11, I really, really hope Takara repaints this mold in G1 toy colors. MP-03 at Walmart was kind of close but went more white instead of grey. TRU MP-11 had a darker blue in some areas but still largely cartoon based.
I want straight up toy based with grey, the accurate wing and vertical stabilizer stripes, metallic gold eyes, et al
ESPECIALLY A TOY BASED THUNDERCRACKER(and while MP-07 was close it wasn’t spot on).
Looks cute together.
Starscream: I shall call him 'Miniscream'.
Mine came in. It has the tiniest crack on one tail fin connector. The rest is good including the feet.
All three molds together. I have such a soft spot for the mp3 mold. Mp11... not so much.
He’s good… the feet are a little loose, but he’s good. The way the wings all fold in and the ‘backpack’ are very clever indeed.
Following these steps, I was able to transform back and forth in less than 20 minutes.
Missed the knee caps tho.
I’m aware of how little sense this picture makes.
Not only is MP-52 the only MP Seeker mold to not have any jet kibble hanging off of the legs, it’s possibly the only other G1-based Starscream mold to do so(I think the DX9 legends seeker mold was the 1st). Sure the New Age and Deformation Space molds don’t have jet kibble hanging off the legs either but you can still see the stabilizers folded up in them.
(Knock on wood) mine is still fine, and survived 2 complete transformation. The ankles could be a bit tighter but not a huge deal, he can still hold a pose fairly well. I might try the polish technic just as prevention.
Had no idea - what have I missed?
Gotta push the knee caps up. Your picture shows them in the jet mode position.
My copy is close to having no issues. No paint blemishes, one loose ankle.
Is that NA Shockwave being wielded?
My copy has no issues. No cracks, chips, or floppy ankles. My mp hound is pristine, and my MP 44 has his original knees in working order. (Don’t worry, my luck isn’t perfect… most of my Fanstoys products have needed replacement parts within the first year).
It's not a F-15C, it's a F-15V VTOL
Damn…looks so good, saving that to my favorites folder.
Aw thanks WinstoBot!! I wasn't thrilled with this one so that makes me feel better
