    Maybe that's why the limit is 5 per person :p  In case you need to piece together a good one from them.

    it's cuz 5 is what you need for a combiner right?

    pick up five rather neutrally colored MP-11's to make yourself a custom MP scaled Superion...

    ok I was kidding, but now I want to see this happen...

    Remove both fins, then flip one over so they're facing the same direction. Look at the connection bars, they should be at different "heights"; 1 lower, the other higher. If they're at the same level, you have duplicate fins.

    Skywarp is truly a "Masterpiece". Paint detail is incredible.
    I bought Starcream the other day but haven't opened it yet. I did notice the box is double taped on one side. Hopefully all is well inside.

    So people can still do in store pick up via the website. For fear of being off topic, I'll just say that's good to hear. :p 

    I'm sorry to hear of peoples' QC issues with this figure. For the most part though still sounds and looks awesome. So glad they reissued this at a price point (I consider) more reasonable than what it was before.

    I'll be taking a break from TFW for a while, but wanted to say I hope everyone gets him okay and enjoys him. Rock on. Peace.

    Opened the one I bought Wednesday this morning, after reading about the QC issues. Thankfully, mine's all good.

    Finally got mine. All was fine out of the box. (Oddly though all fingers were turned the wrong way)

    Only problem on mine is that the space between the chest-missiles is really snug. Had trouble sliding cockpit down into Bot-mode



    Funniest part though, Screamer was on shelf for $60 next to a MP Sunstorm still marked $80. I thought he would've been on clearance by now.

    Correct- Just showed them the issues and they did a search, no more SS in stock in the area, then gave a refund.


    Would NOT give a raincheck, since they said the street date on the item was oct 1

    Thanks so much for this!

    I was finally able to get an order in on the website and paid via Paypal. I called the store right after opening to confirm that they had it and set it aside, which they did. I picked it up later that evening, so I'm happy to say that this search is over. In my excitement, I completely forgot to try and enter the coupon code. If I did, that time might have kept me from completing the order because the store only received two.

    I may try and pick up an extra one down the road so I can trade it for the Hasbro Thundercracker. I remember seeing it collect dust with jacked up boxes in TRU for MONTHS, so I was hoping it would go on clearance. Then, they all vanished without a trace... and ended up at scalper's tables at local toy shows for double and even triple the price.

    Are people having trouble getting the nosecone to pass through the chest or actually fitting the cockpit between the two sides of the chest? If it"s the nose cone the arm between the two parts can be pushed deeper into the area behind the cockpit making it easier to pass through the opening. It feels like a fixed pivot but it's an elongated hole on a dowel.

    Or is it hard to slide the shoulders and cockpit down. If that's the case loosen the two screws on the rails a little. You shouldn't have to force anything.

    If anyone in the NYC area is looking for one, I was able to secure a 2nd one. Assuming all goes well (the items are actually there at pick up), I don't need both. Willing to help someone out.
