Gret way to not loose a tiny piece. Can't wait to get mine.
Starscream's got him some perty lips there.
That is -such- a cool idea.
Though, I find myself wondering if it was a little wasted on those two particular faces...the smirk is great, but the other one seems almost unnecessary.
A few more faces, some bendy tentacles and you could have your own Quintesson... Takara wasted a great gimmick right there.
"Oh.. how it pains me to do this!"
Its kind of awesome that the one thing that defines Starscream more than his robot or alt mode is that smirk. It encapsulates his attitude and character perfectly with one crooked smile.
Awesome. Is the head moveable?
From the look of that pic, it's on a ball joint.
You're supposed to pop a head off a ball joint? Sounds like a recipe for failure... Not like it'll be difficult to pick one face and stick with it.
Reminds me of Man-E-Faces from "Masters of the Universe"....
Still cool and clever tho
I don't think you actually have to pop the head off...it looks as though the head has a cut-out on the back that allows Starscream to look up (maybe it has something to do with the transformation), but also allowing access to the face gimmick as well. The hole at the bottom of the face-post-thingy looks like just the top of the space in which the ball of the joint sits...if that makes any sense.
the joint for the head is at the back of his helmet. like energon hot shot, inferno, rodimus, and prowl.
so he can just barely turn his head.
It's a very cool touch, it confirms his identity.
And suddenly that colour scheme is totally irrelevant. I want.
That would be true, but it seems the way the joint is grooved gives him more mobility than your examples.
Just looking at the pic in the lower left on today's Fan to Fan magazine scan :
I am happy that the head articulation is to that extent.
If, and that is a big "if", I get this "Starscream" it will always be in smirk mode.
Wow, Starscream is really two-faced!
Where ya goin!?
Like I said in the other thread, I hearby demand this freature in every Voyager and larger TFs from now on.
this is the first WOW this figure makes me do, now i'm really considering getting one even before they repaint it in some years.
We just need his coronation gear, trumpets for the constructicons, and it's on!!!
