    I was out today and had a great transformers find. I found the classics cyclonus i was looking for and a classics hound w/ ravage but out of the corner of my eye as I was leaving i noticed a classics starscream.

    I already had a starscream so I wasn't going to grab him but then I noticed his colour scheme was different. He had his original G1 colour design like the one from the japanese release "hentai" (I think) that I've seen pictures of here.

    Has anyone else seen this one on a north american release (I'm from ontario Canada) I got him from a department store too, it wasn't like a specialty store or anything. He is also in the north american (english) pacakaging.

    sorry if i'm way out of the loop on this one, I haven't been on here that much in the last while.

    Anyways yes, after the lackluster first one, they went back and did a pretty nicely done one.

    it's henkei (hentai is... another thing..), and no, it's bit different

    the henkei ones have a more grey-ish color, while what you saw, is in matte white

    Henkei is Classics Starscream with a G1 accurate deco and chrome.

    Hentai Starscream is what all the fan-girls draw.

    Wasn't the more G1-accurate release in Universe under the 25th Anniversary label? I seem to recall seeing a shiny silver sticker/label/thing on the packaging of mine when I picked it up.

    Oh, and I'd say the OP was incredibly lucky to find a Universe Cyclonus now of all times.

    ^ That's the G1 Animation colour-accurate Starscream. IMO, it looks rather plain when translated into a toy.

    for me Henkei SS is the best. i have both the classics v2.0 and henkei. classics is white and henkei is greyish (more G1 cartoon accurate). the red on henkei is darker too. also in bot mode the henkei has much more paint app then classics. classics looks great in jet mode but so bland and dull in bot mode.....

    You're out of the loop. That Starscream, along with Hound, Cyclonus, and Cheetor was in Wave 4's case that came out early this year. Around February-March if I remember right.

    Surprised stores still have that case assortment out, even in Canada.



    Also, Starscream is anything but a pervert.

    I personally like the Classics Starscream. 25th is rather plain in jet mode. Classics looks more like a stunt jet, which is closer to Starscream's showy personality.

    I'm actually grateful both versions exist though to give people a choice of designs, to suit all tastes.

    Sadly, yes there is a Starscream in that line. His ghost possessed one of the girls and they made a recolour. Popped up in the manga too, and, well, let's say Starscream doesn't understand the concept of underwear. Or why you'll never be feared if you leave them around your knees when you leave the bathroom.

    >_<

    Once seen, cannot unsee....

    Yeah, I keep the '06 Starscream up on my main Classicsverse shelf, while the '08 Screamers (yes, very much plural) huddle along with the rest of my Starscream collection.

    The paint scheme on Classics Starscream reminded me of NASA's F-15 ACTIVE. I don't know if that was intentional but it gave me a geek smile when I saw it, and I think it looks great. The Universe version has paint so bright it hurts my eyes. I bought one just because I figured the white plastic would be easier to dye.
