    Definitely better than deluxe 'Screamer...maybe even as good as Spacecase!

    The best part of the previous Thundercracker and Skywarp toys was the different head sculpt that looked more like a proper seeker face than movie Starscream. Pity they're not continuing with that idea.

    Well, I already have all the other characters for that mold. Guess I will have to get him too. LOL.

    Some people still don't know the difference between a character and a toy mold.



    About TC himself... he looks cool, I might get him instead of deluxe SS since I'm very happy with his Leader version.

    That blue is magnificent.

    They absolutely did and moreso. His design is incredible.

    looks cool, but I hope they have an alternate head for the coneheads if they keep repainting this figure.

    Another fugly movie design... I just can't see people looking back on these things in 25 years time fondly. He looks like a Gorilla crossed with a chicken ¬_¬

    Lovely shade of blue and a nice plane mode though.

    I don't see it. Perhaps the design involved for the transformation is incredible, but overall this guy's robot mode looks like a fake, Imo. I'm hoping that we get a voyager Starscream/Thundercracker/Skywarp more like the recent leader class Starscream incarnation, to do them "justice" in a smaller scale.

    You're not the only one :D  I'm not really a fan of it either.

    That said, the Thundercracker really stands out in the blue. I'd buy him if there was a Skywarp too...

    Love him. TC has always been my favorite Seeker, and this deco looks so vibrant. This one is a sure purchase for me.

    Didn't we see a Skywarp version somewhere too? I might be remembering wrong.

    You're quite right, that Classics Seeker mould is just plain bloody awful, isn't it?

    I feel just the opposite. While I like some of the movie designs, Starscream has always looked awful to me, and this figure only seems to make it look worse. I'm a fan of the Classic Seekers however.

    The colors look great. May have to pick this up. Wish he got a different head sculpt though
