    Same here. Inordered mine on the 16 and it was stateside by the 21. As of yesterday it is one state away from me. ShowZ has impressed me with how fast they are getting stuff out and delivered

    Okay I think the incident at the Suez Canal is gonna delay the delivery of this figure for me. I ordered from ShowZ over a month ago. I bet it's on that ship

    From what I've heard something like 10% of all world shipping travels that canal, so if it's not stuck on that particular ship it could easily be stuck on one of the dozens, if not hundreds of others its blocking.

    I wonder how many (if any) have reached the conclusion it will be quicker to take the extra ~2 weeks and circle Africa instead of waiting for the situation to be resolved...?

    Probably copied and pasted the wrong number. That happened to me once with Baba.

    B7CCE205-BA69-49F7-A860-141DFDCC0113.jpeg it’s not showing up directly from the website so idk what the deal is. i ordered this on the 23rd but usually the shipping updates sooner than this with other purchases so maybe i’ll just message terry and see what’s up. could also just be my own impatience ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This is just my guess. That's a USPS tracking number. There's no way China Post can generate that. What must be happening here is that your package was shipped using Yanwen Post which does use USPS as the last mile carrier. I think that number will go active in one or two weeks.

    How do I know this? Well Baba uses Yanwen pretty much all the time nowadays except he gives me the YP tracking number. If I go to 17 track with that number though, it will also tell me the USPS tracking number which only goes active after one or two weeks.

    Mine finally came over a month after I ordered it. He looks and feels amazing but the kibble in jet mode is so bad, his robot mode is perfect though.

    12 days and tracking says it JUST left China. Think this has to do with the size of the box or maybe the whole Suez Canal thing?

    So I finally got my LED kit for MPM-10/KO that I ordered from taobao, it looks pretty snazzy, but requires modification. Have to do something about the extra bleeding though.

    Got mine last week! Whenever I see a new MPM reveal, I get excited for the inevitable KO because I know it will have better paint apps, joints and and possibly other minor improvements; aside from Jazz which was arguably almost perfect when the get go. I definitely give Hasbro their props for the bot design of this figure though. They nailed the inverted dorito look of movie Starscream. Like others have said, he looks SO good in bot mode. I haven't even bothered (and probably won't ever) transforming him into alt mode (which, also as others have said, looks less than stellar) because I will definitely always be messing with and displaying him in bot mode.

    His articulation is so cool and easy to manipulate in his torso and back area area. That, with his head's ability to look up allows for some really cool and dynamic poses. The paint apps are fantastic and miles ahead of what Hasbro had. I haven't yet seen a picture that accurately shows his colors as they are in person. The head is definitely shinier than the rest of his body (aside from some bits in his chest, arms and legs), which is a darker grey color, but it's definitely not as sharp of a contrast as picture make it look. In my humble opinion, it works really well.

    Figure is nice and sturdy, has great joints and the extra added details (chest bits and butt flap flip-ability go a long way in adding that much more detail and accuracy. The only thing I would have liked to see on this guy is some additional articulation in his fingers.

    Awesome figure overall. Probably scales best with the actual MPM line, but I display mine with the Bei Jiang Megatron and BA Optimus and think it looks great! I'll try to take some pictures later.

    FINALLY HAVE SOME WORKING STARSCREAM IN MY LIFE AGAIN! Love this figure. Joints are nice and tight, and I love the additions to the mold they added. However, I gotta say I prefer the lighter deco of the official (including my custom paint of course) Still debating whether it's worth it to do something about the super bright silver they used that I don't like, but overall I'm happy with this thing.

    I can finally got around to ordering this guy well preordering from tf-direct. I'm not sure when tf-direct will get him in, but I pretty excited to get him. I originally had the leader class rotf starscream a long time ago and I love that guy. It's time for a better replacement.

    Such an expressive figure of such an interesting design. I personally love movie Starscream, although I didn’t appreciate the design until the Alex Milne-illustrated Reign of Starscream comic book sequel (which is quite good if you haven’t checked it out already).

    :)  I still got that tattooed version and he reminds me how great leader class figures were back then. Lights and sounds, forearms Gatling gun and missiles gimmicks and his alt mode has less visible robot kibble than MPM.
    Robot mode is definitely superb here nonetheless. Can't argue with that.

    Right.
    So I display 09 leader Starscream with MPM10 KO, it's just a such nice team, different molds and both are excellent figures. They actually complete each other, not one replacing the other.
