    I'm almost tempted to get an official MPM screamer cuz that look is slowly growing on me. The original KO looks a liiiiiiiitle too dark in my opinion.[​IMG]

    Agreed. Starscream was silver in the movies, he wasn't as shiny as Megatron but he wasn't matte grey.

    He also wasn't tan. Ironically the studio series Starscream has a more accurate paintjob than the MPM. The ROTF paint works really well cuz you know it's meant to have that "less realistic" look. BF84F5D2-31A9-479B-8F2D-68264E0CFD65.jpeg

    Thanks! Mine just came in, and I couldn't figure out why the ankles were so floppy, picts helped a great deal.

    My broken MPM10 is for sale too if anyone wants it! Arm broke off but I reattached it. Stays on but can't stay up (flops down at the shoulder). Everything else about it is fine and I added a decepticon symbol, extra paint and an ink wash.

    Posting pictures of my dorito lad, excuse the shitty cheap phone quality. Really love how the engineering has some dna of all his previous main line figures. I just noticed the HasTak version has a T shaped tab near the back of the jet mode where you tab the whole wing assembly. These T tabs are gone on the KO (you can see marks where they are supposed to be) and instead, it has some rectangular tabs on the wing assembly itself that make the whole tabbing process really finicky.

    Yes! Of course I should have posted some initially. The first pic is before the break, to show off some of the the extra paint. The second pic is the break and the third is after I "repaired" it.

    Does the ratchet joint still work? Or is that the part that broke?

    Took this shot of the KO last night that I'm pretty proud of:

    Yeah it still works, which is why the arm can sort of stay up. It's the rotation joint that broke so the arm can't stay up forwards or backwards.

    So I was concerned cause @ShowZStore took two full weeks to even ship my rotf KO, and the message I got was BMB "forgot" to send it to them, which is really weird. Why would they list something as in stock if they're waiting for the company to send it to them? Anyway, mine is FINALLY in the air now, and hopefully will be with me in a week or so. I'm really excited, but also sad in a weird way that I'm gonna have to choose only one starscream, since they're all so good!

    I understand you... I waited four months for a BMB figure from ShowZ and the package never showed up... Finally after lots of messages I got a refund... In points....

    They have been inconsistent lately. Generally I trust them though.

    Yes, I trust them too, but sometimes people can make mistakes. They aren't the exception, so we must understand them too. :p

    I know I’m late to the party, but I just received my ROTF repaint from ShowZ and it is as glorious as expected. I was going to pass because I have entirely too many recolors of other figures and it’s a bad habit, but I am rather glad I picked this guy up. It’s different enough from the original and the paint job is unbelievably impressive, so totally worth double dipping. The ankles aren’t as solid as the TF1 KO and don’t lock in place like I’d prefer, but they are stable enough to display in bot mode, no problem.

    Check few pages back, you will find the fix for the ankles.
