    Anyone swap the feet yet? Wondering which pin would be the best to pop out for the swap...

    The pins I punched out were the ones in the thickest of the plastic ankle hinges. They end up collapsed inside the shins in both modes.

    K guys I did it, got a pin punch set from Amazon, punched out the pins in the heels, one was a bit stiff but came out OK, swapped the feet and the pins slid back in with relative ease, a few taps the knock em back in a bam, fixed! So much happier with it

    Do you mean you like the look of the figure more after the swap or do the ankles actually function better? My ankle tilt works great from the factory despite the feet being on backwards. I also prefer having the wrong installation cause I think it looks better that way. So foe me I’m not sure why you would want to swap them.

    I did swap the roof parts on MPM Prime because they really look terrible installed backwards. But it was a giant pain because you have to remove several pins per side.

    Those weren't the pins I said I punched out. I actually punched out the pins circled in green from the tan and dark brown pieces shown in the photo below targeting the smaller end of the pins.

    I did the swapping of Starscream's feet first because that was my first priority when I opened him and transformed him to robot mode for the first time when I got him for Christmas. I did it because I read that the feet were assembled on the wrong legs and I wanted my copy to be screen accurate and I think it looks best with the feet pinned to the correct legs.

    Yeah I do like the swap, any little bit towards movie accuracy is appealing to me, the indent function is about the same though, just a visual difference

    Still love this guy! This is a fantastic figure, flaws and all, and one of my favorites from last year.

    Honestly he doesn't feel all that flawed to me. It doesn't have any glaring issues like MPM4, it's articulated well unlike MPM5, and he isn't a mess in both modes like Ironhide. All in all it's been one of the more enjoyable MPs in a while. That said I remember someone talking about the deco and I just got MPM1 the day before yesterday; for whatever reason the lighter tan looking color is swapped with one of the darker ones which results in some very different looking jets. I felt like MPM10 looked oddly light but after seeing MPM1 in person finally it's obvious why and also makes me realize that while the chest is what looks mismatched it's probably more that his entire body is mismatched to his chest. At some point it would not surprise me if TT randomly decided to do MPM+ releases for a few figures including this one and possibly Optimus (granted an ROTF based Optimus that's just a more accurate version with hooks also wouldn't surprise me).

    He’s really not. Mine has a slightly loose shoulder ratchet, but it can still hold the weight of the launcher; just can’t shake it around when holding it up.
    I thought about swapping the feet, but idk if the result is worth the effort. Functionally it’s the same either way

    Anyone interested in a once transformed copy of MPM-10 for 150 shipped in ConUSA?

    My copy has very good QC, no problems with the feet whatsoever. Please PM me if interested.

    So far mine seems tight enough all over so maybe that's just luck. I'm likewise uncertain on whether or not I wanna swap the feet; on the one hand it'd be NICE to have it right just because but on the other hand I'm afraid I'll do more damage than fixing

    Dropped my starscream off a high shelf and his arm broke off. I wasn't able to fix it so I made the best of a bad situation and shot some action sequences:

    That's in the next series, where Starscream gets smacked with his own hand.
