    Who else has noticed that when Starscream is fighting the f-22s, after he gets shot by one, he transforms and just slightly clips it with his claws. If you look closely, you can see that the one he clipped, has smoke coming off of it... So Starscream tricks the other jets into beliving that the injured jet is actually him. So the rest of the sqaud goes after that jet, while Starscream transforms and sneaks away.

    Wow... I never noticed that! That even heightens the possibilty that he participated in the aerial strike on Megatron.

    Yeah, I noticed that. It is kind of hard to keep track of which one he is if your not looking closely.

    This has been brought up before, but yeah, it's a really neat little thing that happens in the first film. Definitely one of the coolest little tidbits about starscream's character in that film.

    Interesting... I have never noticed that before. And that is one of my favorite shots in the first film.

    Interesting, in that case Megatron should have beat Starscream's ass more in Revenge of the Fallen.

    I always loved this scene. They showed Starscream being such a badass and it's great. I thought this thread was something else when I came in so now, allow me to go off a little bit.

    I would love to see a dogfight in a transformers movie. Wether it be a thing of Seeker vs Aerialbots type fight or just Seekers vs Humans dogfight.

    I was crying for every dollar in the DoD budget lost for every one of those F-22s Starscream took down. :lol

    For the last time no. There are 3 left Starscream damages the guy, but is chased off by another and the damaged one and the remaining one proceed to attack Megatron. Starscream DOES NOT attack him. If he wanted to, he wouldn't have exposed himself to begin with.

    They wouldn't just let him back into formation like that. And even if they couldn't tell which of the two damaged jets was him, they would know he was obviously one of them.

    It's one of those little details that makes it one of the better fights in that film.

    After Megatron is killed.

    Exactly.

    The last F22 approaches Starscream and he says "One last hero. One more for the scrap heap!"

    After he's done with the human squadron, he flies off to inspect Barricade, who was taken down on the freeway, but regenerating.....

    I've noticed that. It's something that I really love about first movie Starscream. There's all sorts of small things to notice about him. Using his alt mode to deceive the humans like that is so Starscream and a great use of his disguise.

    I always noticed that he did that clipping thing, but I never thought that that was the purpose, I thought that he just wanted to attack the plane, but missed.

    Especially since they clearly aren't fooled.
