    Do you like the way his character is in the show? He's not your typical Starscream. He's a good guy who cares. In my opinion, I love his character in Armada. He's my all-time favorite Starscream actually.

    Considering I pretty much grew up with Armada, I came to know Starscream as he was in that series. Because of how deep and developed (for a UT character, anyway) he was, every Starscream since has been a bit boring to me.

    Toy's not half-bad, either.

    I liked him, he was a refreshing change from the usual back-stabbing schemer which inhabits most other continuities. He was one of the main reasons I watched Armada at the time.

    Great character. Best from Armada, hands down, and probably the best character in the whole Unicron Trilogy.

    Never saw Armada - but if it's Starscream, thumbs up.

    Starscream made the show for me. Carried the entire weight of the show on his shoulders and didn't even break a sweat. He was the best thing to come out of Armada, which makes his portrayal in Energon and Cybertron all the more disappointing.

    Of course! I find him being the first Decepticon to actually have a heart in the end very amazing. He kept on fighting until the very end.

    I liked Armada-Scream. He was the answer to the question "What OTHER reasons might a Decepticon have to go against Megatron?"

    Armada Starscream was pretty much the only somewhat two-dimensional character in the series, and in that he was also the only memorable one. I think I would have liked it more if his character had been expanded upon more in the series and if the character development had carried on into Energon (which was an unwatchable travesty). I like his character design quite a bit too, the one wing with sword look really conveys an interesting roguish quality that suits a character like Starscream quite well. Too bad the figure has terrible articulation, but I still love my Armada Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp quite a bit.

    He was a unique take on the character. He was more of a tragic character. than a villainous one.
    I didn't like how he and Alexis had a "relationship".

    Too bad he became a one dimensional grunt in Energon.

    Well actually he's a zombie ghost grunt but yeah it's a shame that's how they planned on reviving him.

    Armada Starscream was a well written charecter, possibly one of the 2 best takes on him the other is the Creepy, sinister and frightingly competant Prime Starscream.

    I liked how Armada Starscream was torn between his loyalties to the Decepticon cause and Megatron personally, and his personal code of honor and the things he knew to be right. In the end he found a way to uphold his honor and still keep his oath.

    Speaking of Code of Honor, I kinda think his death was similiar to that of Dinobot's. In fact Dinobot and armada Starscream are very similar to begin with.

    Yeah Armada Screamer and Dinobot did both die awesome deaths for the name of god but came back zombie style and crapped all over the good that the had once done.

    I loved his character. The way he was done was very well written. He seems to strike me as an upgraded G1 Thundercracker with a new personality.

    Hated how he was done in Energon though, as it ruined the character development for me. Gives me an idea for a fanfic though. Wonder what would happen if Armada Screamer met Prime Starscream, hmmmm...
