    Same. Especially seeing as some of these guys have been super excited since he was announced, just to have a defective, mis packaged (faces), and or cracked figure. Mine has no issues neither BUT whenever time permits here at work I'm gonna have to put him under our powerful microscope to check for cracks just in case.

    someone elsewhere mentioned G1 Starscream actually used the gerwalk mode briefly in the original cartoon ... that can't be true can it??

    It's a landing scene, and the official images mimic that shot

    Not off hand, but it was posted in here, so no doubt whoever posted it will swing by and have it handy. I suspect @jackisking or @chchchch probably...

    My copy is near perfect, but the Megatron gun does not peg in securely to his hand.

    along with Dinobot island it’s very reminiscent of the way they transform in the season 1 opening when they land in the canyon

    I used a toothpick, added a drop directly in the seam and worked it in. Adding it to the head of the rivet/pin didn't do anything on my copy. Within several minutes, I noticed the joint tighten up.

    I’m enjoying Star Cream a lot, he’s so expressive and it’s great to finally have an MP Starscream with such a great range of articulation.

    And, here I am once again looking for places on the figure to store the extra faces. This time it really seems almost intentional as the slots in his outer forearms are an exact match for the tabs on the faces.

    Not as good a fit in the inner forearm slots, but this still works well enough.

    Two faces in each arm, one on the head and as for the the sixth face…

    Starscream is so full of himself!! :D

    Holy heck, that’s amazing! That backpack storage has to be intentional! Looks like you can’t transform him with the faces in the arms though? Still awesome either way!!

    Like others have said, it’s Dinobot Island. I was watching it a few nights ago and every single Seeker used the Gerwalk mold, both during mid transformation and in mid battle. It’s legit.

    Yeah, they definitely can’t be stored there in jet mode since his hands need to fill that space. Next time I transform him I’ll have to look for some alt mode storage.

    Follow-up to my previous post: putting one face in the arm first, positioned at the inside front of his forearm, then tabbing the second face in holds well without one face rattling around.

    Replaced him. Phenomenal figure. Managed to transform him this time with no major damage. Will have to keep an eye out for a KO to replace the right arm on my original.

    You need to be a bit careful with two small tabs in the cockpit/canopy section as it is very easy to scuff up the edge underneath (which I appear to have done but its very minor). What I've learned is that if it feels you are having to force anything on this figure, you are probably doing something wrong. Probably true of most Masterpiece transformers.

    Meant to say earlier, since it fits the slot intended to hold gun Megaton, it’s definitely semi-intentional. I do wonder if they purposefully used the same sized tab on the faces. :)
