    I'm in the UK and mine only took 4 days from Japan so I don't think transit time was really the issue.

    Finally got a shipping notice from Kapow, so hopefully it'll be here unscathed in the next couple of days.

    A little respect for Lilac-wave.:) 
    He's probably going to coordinate better with these new seekers. Once I find one at a price I like he's sending 29+ to the diaclone shelf.

    Haha...he's the one I have. 29+ I thought was too dark. I actually like him a lot, but just wish he was painted

    when I was trying to tuck the cockpit area into the torso and connect it to the lower back. It didn’t seem quite “in” enough. i retransformed that one area, and noticed the glass of the cockpit that opens wasn’t shutting fully. I opened it, and it was broken. Seems it maybe got stuck and wouldn’t move. A small piece of the tab is stuck behind the metal pin. Got it from TFSource so I’m hoping they can help with a replacement of some sort. Doesn’t really effect transformation at all. In fact I don’t know why that little flap exists in the first place. But it’s a $260 figure so any breakage is frustrating.

    The ankles are so tight on mine now that it feels like I have to force it to move. Future should just sell toy joint polish instead of floor wax lol.

    I was never 100% sold on this guy, especially when the new 3rd party KO/improvement was revealed, but I got him for a great price because why not.

    I just opened him, transformed him, and have him on my desk and I cannot sing enough praises for this figure. What an absolutely perfect Starscream. The transformation is an absolute treat. Both modes are stunning. The backpack folds up SO nicely and flat, it's so negligible in person. The faces ooze personality. The whole damn MOLD oozes personality.

    This is, by far, one of the best MPs to date. If TT could get their QC in line, they'd be on the money. I love this figure so much and can't WAIT for TC and SW now.

    Owning all three MP-03 TRU USA version, MP-11 Destron Emperor and this, well, it ain't even a fair fight to compare all three at the same pedestal.

    That grey part is in F-15s but it would’ve been better if it was molded separately from that clip and just glued to the sides of the canopy, thereby not needing the clip.

    Where did you apply it?

    I'm also curious how anyone is getting it down into where the rivet is. I guess you're supposed to put it on the outside of the rivet head but the polish just sits there in a bead for me. It never seeps down in.

    Here's something unexpected; the stands that came with both ToyWorld's Deluxe Optimuses is compatible with Mp52
