Nope, not even close when compared to the recent crop of releases.
actually the hands themselves aren’t painted either, they’re just a different type of plastic from the fingers/wrist joint.
I posted that without the toy in front of me, so I made the wrong call there . Forgot the hands are also distinguishable from the forearms.
Can someone show me where they put future/Kiki to tighten up the forward/backward foot movement?
my copy’s left foot even after adding gorilla glue into the crack of the tube that holds the foot in place is not 100% solid.
I honestly don’t know why TT didn’t do ratcheted feet for a bot of this size…
NO STARSCREAM DONT!
STARSCREAM WOULDN'T DO THIS OML
I'M CRYING RN
Needed a laugh today! Best use of the O face I’ve seen.
lol Besides this ‘my nugget!’ face I think this face is much more well-suited as a groveling ‘NO MEGATRON PLEASE!’ face. That’s why it’s my second favorite face after the flawless smirk face.
I'm still waiting for someone to paint it brown.
Just got my starscream. Watched out for all the worry areas like the ankles and crack prone parts and no issue. Gorgeous paint job too. Transformation is nuts.
I have an issue though. I dont believe this has been reported yet and I'm assuming it's an isolate issue but my copy's engine sheared off the pin. I am distraught as my copy had no problems whatsoever then I discovered two huge cracks on the heel and there it went. Perhaps this part cant handle the extension portion of transformation.
I was always of the belief the issues were overblown. I do still think that but of all parts i didnt expect this one to give out.
Yeah first time I’ve seen that too.
I’ve received my second copy, and have a third coming tonight. It’ll be an interesting evening! Heheh.

Comparing the Cream with his fellow baddies
Vs the bot that started it all with the head swap.
Sweet and deadly vs Sweet poison( cream is the latter )
Vs the mascot
Vs the cop who ran him through a trash compactor.
Vs the original nice guy mascot.
Varying height and sizes indeed.
Do you really though? I mean they consume Energon, purple is probably the right output. You just need a 'Before' picture of Megatron squatting over one
Anyone have issues tabbing wings to the body?
They have to be lined up “just so” and can require a little force to get the tabs to lock in place.
In other news the second of my MP-52s arrived tonight and he’s in much better condition than my first - still has a crack on the right vertical stabiliser rivet housing, but it’s far less noticeable.
There is a slight stress mark in the ankle area on one foot, but no cracks to be seen at all and he stands up more firmly too.
Will see how number three goes as he didn’t arrive tonight as expected…
All things being as they are, I’m feeling like a much happier MP collector this evening!
It's easier if you tab the wings together (the grey tab) before clicking onto the body (the red tab).
You also need to ensure the wings are fully extended at the central point (they slide). I recall @Chris C137 posting an image of it.
Cream brings out the best and our worst concerns. Those breakages in his wrists and ankles. Are those like MP-47 plastics or bad luck or misuse?
Edited: Weird typos!
The cracking on the ankle and tailfin areas are more like stress cracks. Like the rivet was shot it too hard, too fast, or slightly at the wrong angle. Or the pieces already fit together just right, and when the rivet was inserted, it caused the inner peg to widen, which put pressure on the outer cylinder, which then cracked. The best evidence of this is looking at the ankle joint, nearly every photo that's been posted has shown white stress lines around the crack, and even some that haven't cracked show the stress. In these cases, generally once it cracked, that stress is relieved, and you won't see much more breakage. The crack might widen ever so slightly while you move the joint, but all in all, it'll most likely stay just like that forever. Cracking like this, especially around pin joints is actually quite common around all toy manufacturers.
For the wrists, from what I've seen here, that appears more like Hound. Especially how most instances have the "spiderweb" looking breakage. But also how the plastic more "crumbles" away, and leaves behind that shiny plastic in the break.
