I think the main issue with the stand part is it was made for the MP-03 Seeker mold. The newer MP-11 rework while largely similar, has just enough of a difference that the old stand part does not fit its intended connection point in fighter jet alt mode. For whatever reason the Hasbro releases did not update the stand pieces when they updated the core figure. I am not sure if the Takara's versions have the same problem.

The Seeker molds really are a mixed blessing. They look great, but are so frustrating. Especially when compared to many of the other MP figures. Such as the Carbots.

The ghost of cruel fate?

That makes sense with the stand. They do look exactly the same. And yes, frustrating is the word. Especially compared to how good pretty much all of the other MPs have been since MP-11 dropped. I haven't done it yet, but if I ever see a 3P MP Seeker in person (TFcon Chicago?), I may just pick one up to see if it's a better alternative.
