    I want one of these since I have the Wal-mart original mold version but I worry after the floppy mess that Thrust and Ramjet were, this might follow suit. It's a lot to pay for kibble loss and some recolored parts if it's a flop fest. Looking forward to hearing from those who got it.

    Haven't taken the bubble wrap off or opened one to see. But I probably will today.

    Yes, please go ahead an open it. I am dying to see if he comes with the same issues as Thrust before actually pressing the buy button.

    Still debating whether to open this or not (have the BBQ KO which is damn near flawless on display), but I can at least tell you it is NOT double taped.

    Please do. I'm sorta in a holding pattern on this until someone can say it's good or a flopfest all over again :(

    I think most people are just wondering (well I am) is if he has that loose floppy waist like Thrust did (the kind that gives the mold an ab crunch it shouldnt have) and also if the knee ratchets are tight or if they are loose and he just wants to flop backwards and not stand up straight.

    Yeah I don't think it did. People here seem to think it's just the mold being used too many time so with this being what, the 17th seeker release? Might be a little loose but I'm hoping Thrust was just a single issue.

    Happy to report no issues on mine, he stands just fine. Doesnt come with the extra manual in chinese that the first release had, therefor the top of my box wasnt messed up like the last time.

    I had one on preorder with BBTS but mine still says December while others have shipped. Must not have gotten their full shipment in or something. :(

    Finally some in hand experience! Mine is still winging his way to me, but I'm glad to hear that these seem to be pretty alright for quality.
    He looks great: and after getting my very first taste (!) of the MP seeker mold with Thrust, I can't wait to also see the original MP-11 mold (the rerelease of MP-11 Starscream has now also been ordered!).

    Man, he's a great looking MP. Still one of my very favourites.

    This will be my second copy of him, but I chose a slower shipping option, so it could be another week or two before I see him.

    Also if it helps the sliding mechanism is not floppy at all on my copy. If anything this copy stands better than my MP-11T, that one has a weird forward lean that bugs the hell out of me. My original MP-11SW had the same thing, this one stands nice and straight :)

    My Skywarp was flawless except for one thing. The translucent cockpit canopy piece would not stay in no matter what. At first I thought it was a matter of shaving some weird extraneous plastic by the hinge but that wasn't working. Turns out the cockpit itself was fine, but there was a screw missing that connects where the pilot sits in the cockpit. I stole my Hasbro Sunstorm's screw and used that and it works fine now. Sunstorm even holds that piece in place no problem without the screw. Very weird. Pic attached for reference.

    Everything else is flawless though.

    Maybe I'm just tired - but is the face the same on this one as the original version?

    Same. I'm wondering what's taking so long.

    I wrote today and asked about their Sharkticons (legends) and got an answer they were coming really soon and they must have gotten some in because mine were processed today. The guy (Jacob) said "let me know if there is anything else you need answers on" so I wrote back and asked when Skywarp would be in for the rest of us, or if he had an update. It was after 3:30 CST though so I won't get an answer till Monday. When he writes back I'll post it up in here.
