    So wow, everyone got a flawed one?

    At this point someone could just sacrifice one for parts and sell the replacements to other people with a flawed one or something...

    I don't know... I even looked at the things that people were going on about to make sure I wasn't missing a finger or had two of the same hands. I have never had this mold before so I didn't know to even look if I had two of the same hips. It's obvious in the pictures I took now but I had no idea of knowing from jet mode because I didn't know what to look for. I thought that was the way it was supposed to be. Not like it would have mattered much. Even after I got it over two months ago wasn't like you could just exchange it... it was hard to come by already.

    :: Sighs :: I'm totally screwed... I don't see anyone having this part...


    I don't mind the flaws either like the sprue marks or the paint screw ups on mine. I would have been perfectly ok with that... but remove one of the hip pieces and tell me you'd be ok with that? With a whole front pelvic area missing...

    I'd rather have had two of the same hands... at least then I'd have options... someone to exchange with... 3rd party hands... something...

    This? I haven't heard of anyone else having two of the same pelvic piece... what the hell man... I'm so screwed... it's so depressing...

    So what are the common issues with this thing? I have yet to notice any problems outside of the horrible sprue marks on mine so I'm slightly paranoid now.

    Yes this. So far people have reported getting

    Two left or right hands
    Two left of right rear tailfins
    and in my case two left front/pelvic pieces.

    I think the hands end up being the more common ones.

    Damn, I thought I had someone you could contact. After looking back on his post, he also has two left pelvic pieces. I hope you can find your part. Someone in this thread actually sent me a center pelvic piece that was missing from my SS. You never know.

    When you say two left though do you mean Starscreams left or OUR left when looking at him? I have two of Starscream left, meaning it's the right side of the figure when looking at him. I need a right piece (Our left). So maybe there is a chance? Can you find out for sure? I really appreciate you even taking the time to help in the first place and look that up. So thank you. :) 

    And yours was missing the entire center crotch piece? Wth... I mean seriously... What in the HELL was up with the QC on this figure... did NO one check them...

    That was me :lol  But I don't think I have any more of those front flap pieces anymore. I just had to dig into my parts bin to find the spring for MP-11T's hip since mine was missing one.

    re: the hips

    Is it the same part as on the MP3 mold? You can get a junker of that mold pretty cheaply on eBay

    From what I can tell in pics they are completely remolded pieces. So it wouldn't match up even if they fit on the pegs.

    Man, I'm really sorry to hear about your plight. Especially as it was an Xmas gift. Seems like it ruined your Xmas, which is a shame. Really pisses me off "Hasblow" fucked the duck on QC for this. After this, I am done with them. I've always gone Takara, and will continue to. Some in the past chastised me for stating Hasbro was inferior to TT... fuck em. I've seen enough pain to stand by my claims.

    I hope you find the piece (peace) you're looking for, but try not to lose sleep or obsess over it. I've fallen into that trap for other pieces of shit that have failed me, and it's simply not worth it for a shitty specimen anyway like MP-11 Starscream (my personal opinion).

    You might consider selling it as is, and starting fresh, depending what you are looking for, and at what cost. Any way, good luck. I sympathize with your situation and hope you find a favorable outcome.
