    TFC F-15 Eagle Review - YouTube

    Only my second review, so in the words of the famous Cary Mahoney "Please, be gentle." :)  Feedback is welcomed, enjoy.

    Update: someone pointed to try turning the head around for leg mod and try pegging in the chest part. It fits and pegs in secure but on mine I had to put a little pressure on the collar that the head sits in to get it to line up properly. I am afraid over time that thin piece might stress or break off. Just something to watch out for.

    Thanks for the review! I'm glad to see the missiles or whatever can be plugged into the fists. I prefer that to help hide them in robot mode. Anyway, can't wait to get mine!

    Thanks for the review! Personally, I keep looking at this mold and over to the classics seeker mold, thinking of the price difference, and just thinking; not worth it for this mold. I'm not so intent on building superion anyway. Looking forward to seeing the remaining molds to see if I'll pick one of those up...

    You can, the squeaking on Eagle is no where as bad as it is on Phantom. Tbe noise should go away with time.

    So is the "silver cone inside the nosecone" explained anywhere in the instructions? All it seems to do is add ugly hinges to the sides of the nose in jet mode to reveal it.

    (and it is absolutely nothing like a real plane's radar---see MP Starscream for what it really looks like---they may as well have sculpted a kitty, it'd be equally accurate)

    The only thing the instructions show is to open the nosecone in combined mode. I really do not see the point of even having it there. I really do not notice to the hinges due to the jet being black. I really would've been awesome if they sculpted a Hello Kitty instead.
