    Not a fan of that clear plastic cylinder being visible, but the rest of the piece looks gorgeous.

    One of these days they are going to make a bust that will make me break my "I don't buy busts" vow. This is not that day.

    That's pretty cool. Nice to see a Starscream bust that doesn't look like all the others.

    Yeah, the clear pole is a little odd on it...especially in the way the cape wraps around the base. However, this thing is a fine-looking bust.

    I don't like the sculpt at all. Too doughy. That said, if they'd made it to scale with Masterpiece Starscream and made the crown, shoulder pads and cape detachable, they might've sold me one. Oh well.

    They had a flyer with the pre-order info for this and the Reformatted Megatron at ComicCon.

    It's not horrible, but it lacks something in the design. The smirk might be classic starscream, but it doesn't fit the pose. Also the clear rod serves no purpose. Why not just build the base up higher? It looks out of place. Clear rods are used to give the illusion of flotation. Is Starscreams torso suppose to be floating?

    Good idea, decent sculpt, bad design.

    Clear post ruins it for me. Why couldn't they have just given Screamer upper legs, or perhaps designing the base so no clear post necessary? Also I too don't believe Starscream ever smirked for the short time he wore the crown.

    I'm not a fan of busts because I'm not into buying half a statue. But this one is certainly different, however I don't like the torso at all. It just seems kinda "chubby" in some odd spots, like SS put on a few pounds, mostly the cockpit being so wide.
