Just got mine in as well; pretty pleased with it, especially the deco.
Only drawback would be the face is a lil rugged but otherwise, ok.

Just got mine today too, and living in Michigan, I was very surprised not to hear of Texas getting theirs 2 days prior. She IS fast

And another subscription figure means another very minor damage-through-shipping issue: The way her missile clusters were jammed in, one of the rubber missiles is bent up, so when they're attached in jet mode, it looks like it's angled to loop back and nail anyone tailing her. Actually an interesting idea, and nothing that can't be bent back with a little patience. Anyone else have this issue?

So, those leaked photos a while back actually were evidence she'd be next. Who'd a thunk FunPub would lead with what were surely the most fan-demanded of the six? Not to slight the ex-Action-Masters, of course (Jackpot was always a personal fav of mine for his ability to surf on Sights's back), I was just positive those two would be first back when I signed up.

Rubber bits are almost always slightly askew. Heat up some water, dip the parts in for a few moments and bend to shape. Dip them in cool water and you should be good. For heating water, I usually microwave a coffee mug for about a minute at a time. Three is usually plenty. You'll want to check after every minute though to ensure you don't boil over. It just needs to be slightly hotter than your tap.

When I took her out of the box, the missile pods stayed in because she was packed snugly. I took them out and they both look completely fine to me.

Was a signature required?

Got a text from my sister saying a package came for me. Said it was small.

Since I haven't ordered anything recently, it's gotta be this figure.

I have room in the house that gets up to 100 degrees in the summer due to no A/C. I've left TFs with bent soft rubber parts in there, such as BW Depth Charge's knee bits; and they've gone back to standard shape within a day. Hope that helps.

Not on mine. Wasn't on Scourge or Depth Charge, either. Then again, don't they all get shipped via the same method, or could you choose a different one when you signed up? I've forgotten..

Nope. I've never had to sign for any club figures and I have all of the sub figs and most of the others.

Got mine yesterday. I like her. Her face isn't as bad as photos would have you think. Her chin doesn't look as long in person as in photos, to me anyway. :CON:

So the face isn't as bad as you'd think... but the question is, would LIPSTICK help it!!??? :-?

It does have lipstick. Her lips are black.

Really!? Couldn't see it in the pictures. That's a nice perk. Black lipstick=goth chick. Awesome.

Actually, I want to say, the black on her mouth isn't lipstick, it's actually the inside of her mouth. Her mouth's open, but the way her mouth is sculpted with it open and the silver paint does give her the look of having lips. Sorta.. Arcee Prime like.

Just got mine in the mail today. She reminded me what a nifty little mold First Edition Starscream is. By the way, is she supposed to be part of the Prime continuity? Her bio is basically all about her appearance in the club fiction in Axiom Nexus. Is she another case like with Depthcharge, who officially is NOT his G1 pre-Beast Wars self, but from a splinter timeline? It's so tempting to put her in my Classics display, though she is QUITE a bit taller than all the other Seekers.
