Found 5 different starscreams today (at 2 different walmarts) and no pins....
Yup, it’s starting to look more and more likely that the tweeter was bluffing about having his SS with a running change.
Yeah Starscream finally showed up here and none of them, including the one I bought, had pins.
Just spotted Starscream in WM, no pin
I picked up Siege Soundwave, and Bumblebee Prime... Bumblebee Prime is not good... he has issues, that are far worse than Starscream without pins.
So out of thousands or more figures, only 1 had the pin? I call BS, no one else has reported a pin, the OP must be trolling
Yep, I'm waiting till Wave3 for my Screamer.
No pin on mine.
I wonder what the chances are that pins will be put in just for thundercracker and/ or skywarp.
low considering the "change" appears to be a hoax and the design works as intended
I bought Starscream today, no Pin on him, or any of the others at the store; But the chest does not fall off on mine as easily as the reviews, as in hasn't fallen off yet, but I see it wanting to, so mileage will vary, just go slow with it. But i needed to scrape off some paint on the connectors of the nose cone, they got stuck good together.
It may not get pinned, but I think they will tweak the design some for Thundercracker to make the chest plate stay on better, and that will carry over to Skywarp and (the probably happening) "35th Anniversary" version of this Starscream mold. They supposedly did work on some of the wonkier parts of Siege Megatron for the release of Select Combat Hero Megs, and those two releases came out pretty close together so it is possible for Scream to get a tweaked variant.
Oh I don’t doubt it’ll get tweaked for future uses of the mold, I just doubt that the pin is an actual running change and as such won’t be easy to find because it isn’t a legit change
If you're referring to the floppy joints, then watch this. Don't worry about the language, as the video is fairly easy to understand.
Interesting, do you have the amazon link to buy it?
Amazon Japan link?

Found Screamer about 2 weeks ago at Walmart and bought him for my son. The nubs on the grey piece holding the chest in place were a joke on this particular figure. One side worked well while the other side didn\'t really work at all. Like most of us here, looking at the red side of the chest plate, I figured I could pin it.
Went to my local Lowe\'s and, in the specialty screws area [drawers], found a package of \"Assorted Music Wire\" which included a 6 inch aluminium 3/32 pin. (You\'ll need tile snips to cut it to the right size) Used a 3/32 drill bit for going through the grey piece on Starscream\'s chest. Once hole was drilled, I used a bottle cap to protect my thumb as I pushed the pins into place. Viola. Done. Works like a charm. My 9 year old son is extremely happy now.
Did you guys know the flap on the back of his head is a gap filler. There are groves cut out in the back pack for it to slide into: https://imgur.com/9lZOYHT
Sorry, i actually meant the amazon link to buy that Japanese bsll joint strengthening white liquid bottle
Hey, I know nothing about working with tile. Is there a difference between tile snips and tile nippers? Is there a certain kind I should get?
Okay, I’ve covered 8 pages. This rumored running change has as much traction as a potential running change in this post.
Hella good repackaging or factory screw up?
