Cowering is his M.O., why pose him standing?
Both of my copies are immaculate btw
Comes with the territory. With MP47, only time will tell if material is just as crumbly.
I'm very curious what this guy would look like with the faux cockpit removed. But it looks like it's pinned on.
@Xaxis am I doing it right?
I really like this figure. So much so that I can almost overlook the price (almost).
I've been pretty lucky with mine. Aside from one hairline crack on the right stabiliser, I don't appear to have any issues. All the faces are present and correct, the paint has no obvious defects, everything tabs together pretty well etc.
It's also a fairly easy and intuitive transformation; I didn't even need the instructions. The only bit I had trouble with was getting one of the intakes to tab into the shoulder properly, but once I figured out that you can put your finger inside the intake and push the bit that connects directly (rather than pushing down on the die cast part and trying to leverage it), it went on first time and both are now secure.
I'm really exited for the plus versions now! The Maketoys set will be relegated to alt mode once the official trio are assembled!
BrutiKing has you sorted.
A screw would not fix the issue, the area needs reinforced or made out of stronger plastic. See my post above where I disassembled my bad leg. Also can you post a link to the thread tracking qc issues please.
I agree, but not at first, no sir!!!!!! lol
Seriously though, it was more complex than I thought it was going to be but maybe that's TT's instructions as they do not skip a single step on that architectural floor plan they include as instructions. The second time was easy, those instructions will never see the light of day again!
Still trying to disguise himself as Optimus Prime - in this case MP-1.
Do the cracks affect the stability in any way?
Someone did earlier in the thread. It looks ok, but the faux cockpit definitely looks better to me.
I saw PrimeVPrime's review and he doesnt fold it all the way before turning the wing piece, thus stressing the pin.
Oh not the ankle, I mean the vertical stabilizer cracks. The pins they fired in are too tight and even copies that weren't cracked from mounting are cracking when the stab gets rotated due to the excessive tension.

This is one of my favourite figures of all time.. up there with the G1’s & G2’s I had as a kid.
I’m a little bummed out that Nippon Yasan is ignoring my messages regarding the damage to my figure. Missing stabilizer rivet and massive crack on ankle post. I just need 2 replacement leg parts and one face and it’ll be neigh on perfect. I can probably repair the ankle post with glue but would rather spare parts. Really not sure what to do
Hopefully Skywarp and Thundercracker will be better.
Haha! Well, buddy, Star Cream looks pretty pleased so I think maybe you have done it right!
If they are anything like my starscream, I’m set!
Don't expect a response for a while. NY has notoriously terrible customer service.
Just curious since you managed to take this apart, do you think the foot wouldn’t need a screw to keep it on if it also had a connection point on the opposite side?
I swear that Hound has given some people here toy breakage related PTSD when it come to Takara figures. For the rest of eternity if a Takara figure has any sort of problem the specter of Hound with appear and send chills down everyone's spines.
This is not Hound by any stretch of the imagination. Yes people have had some problems but people really need to chill out and stop acting like the damn sky is falling. If you're so scared this will crumble to dust then return it, sell it or don't buy it at all. If you're really desperate for a Starscream go buy DS Jabroniscream. All I can hope is Takara changes how they assemble Thundercracker and Skywarp because the main problems this is having in the tailfin area and ankles can be easily corrected. I also hope that Takara expands it's aftersale customer service beyond Japan. It's kind of bunk that when people not in Japan have problems that they can't get replacements.
Same. Can't wait for those two.
