    Not sure where to ask this, but I come requesting opinions. SS-86 Starscream is currently on sale on Amazon, can his coronation kit (specifically the cape and crown, as I don't think the pauldrons would work) be used on other figures? I really only want the dope-ass throne, but if the coronation kit works on other figures, that'd be a neat bonus. Would you say it's worth $30 and trying to sell Screamer? The only thing holding me back is I doubt it'd be easy to offload just Starscream.

    Mind-blowing news. I mean, does it work on non-Seeker figures? Not a fan of the ER Seeker mold tbh, and I currently don't have any Siege Seekers. I was thinking along the lines of Legacy stuff like Jhiaxus, Tarn/Bludgeon, Armada Megatron, or Metalhawk. Obviously the pauldrons won't work on most of those lol.

    Yes. The cape has a standard size weapon/blast effect peg (5mm?) So, as long as the figure you want to use the cape with has a port on it's back, the cape will peg in.

    For example, siege/er Soundwave, er Optimus, K Rodimus, K Blaster etc.

    I know Cosmos isn't a car, but he heard someone say "funny proportions" and appeared out of thin air


    It likely won't be super difficult to find someone willing to buy Starscream and his coronation gear if you list it for a reasonable price. That's what I did, just bought it for the throne, and sold the rest

    Maybe their fate would have been different if Ironhide had this much firepower on board.

    I love taking the tiny guns and adding the massive blast effects to them. Makes me laugh every time
