    Some users have used Kiki wich is a product specific for these issues, but you can get the same result by using floor or nail polish. I would sugest applying it with a qtip on the gap of the loose joint and work it in bu moving it up and down.

    Glue might work also, but you ate risking to end with a "frozen joint". If i remember correctly, users who used glue have only applied it on small cracks.

    He's really going to look beautiful. cant wait to paint his face a pale grey/white. Sideswipe 2.0 is going to be heat.

    Very possible.. If they do feel supply met demand, it's most probably in my mind he will reissue around the same time as a Ghost Starscream exclusive which I would place before a Galvatron release.
    Im waiting on that MP44 reissue announcement... I'll pick up 45 too and maybe try snag Arcee before she disappears.

    I see reissues as free money printing, as the fandom grows more new people flock in wanting these guys they didn't know about or even for the peeps who missed out first round or wanted the quality issues ironed out.
    I hope Raiden and the Honda bros have this effect in building the fanbase larger.
    I'm surprised TT has been more conservative on whoring out the MP44 mold.


    And out of stock at alot of other retailers which might indicate there is no more supply for a restock. TFsource most definitely got a huge inventory in their initial order. Impossible to know how many they have left, could be 10 or it could be a few hundred. It would be amazing if you could just order whatever you needed from TT anytime without paying bespoke money. One can dream.


    I never liked Brawn, so this scene is close to my heart

    Huh... Rakuten gave me a little over 6000 points currently to spend, where I could conceivably get Starscream for 15200 yen... Now to think about it whether I should pull the trigger or not, since it still carries with it risk. I better figure out my finances and see whether its worth the gamble or not. The end reward, however, is big and is indeed a wonderful looking figure. Ah well, these are good problems to have.

    80F62B08-3D83-4005-AA54-903C36E4731F.jpeg Still can’t get over Starscream! I put him in the shelf and a couple hours later he’s right back beside me…also I don’t remember when I’ve changed the face options on one figure so frequently!

    Delivered today from ShowZ, only took 11 days with free shipping. Took a good deal of time inspecting him before transformation and noted no cracks, stress lines or missing pieces.

    Oh sure! Just rotate the head down on that dark and light gray horizontal axis pin at the back of the neck. Should look much better if you follow my advice. Cheers!

    Yeah, a few of the faces didn’t sit flush on my first copy. Strangely, a few did plug in completely. Dunno why.

    Haha since I accidentally derailed the thread with my pic of Starscream and Soundwave together (although most of the conversations Re: Soundwave quite appropriately got moved to the proper thread) here’s my latest Starscream photo shoot to make up for it :D

    Just binged the new series last night. I think Starscream is still lost in some Allspark induced illusion.

    Okaaaaay, so I ordered another Star Cream from AJ. My one copy with a bad right ankle suffered a crack on the inside when I tried to remove the rivet. So with my fourth Star Cream, no QC issues to be found.

    So this makes me realize a few things. I’m 3 for 4 with QC free Star Creams and I need more experience with rivet removal.
