    I love the Altmode but I've never liked the movie version seekers in bot mode.

    Looks good in Vehicle mode, would have been perfect if the head was retooled.

    I hope they make a Skywarp! I'll put them next to my Voyager Seekers with the g1 deco!

    I'm so glad TC is getting a DOTM release. I missed out on the 2007 Voyager, and I was reluctant to pick up Deluxe Starscream due to Leader SS being so amazing. This gives me an opportunity to get both the character and the mold. I'll definitely pick up Skywarp if they make him, too.

    Now that I may consider buying. The blue looks really good on that mold.

    Ewwwwww

    Leave flamboyant 80s color schemes to 80s toys.

    The 2007 one looked better, and at least they gave him a different head.

    I was hoping for a new head. But I still might be interested in it.
    I'll def' get all three if they release a Skywarp stateside.

    I'm a Thundercracker fan, and the Jet mode looks nice, but the colours don't look so so great on the bot mode.
    I prefer the Starcscream version this mold in both modes.

    If they do a Skywarp with this mold I will be picking up this guy to go with my Voyager DOTM Starscream for sure. If they do a G1 Starscream of this mold I will get him too

    I have no complaint with the jet mode..but the bot mode...the legs are just too spindley for the chest/top. Otherwise, the colors are great!

    i guess they must sell better, cuz this new trend of Deluxe Prime's, Megatrons and Starscreams is just bumming me out. Still hoping to see Megatron (T3 Megs is the first version I've liked the design of...) and Shockwave as leaders ~ seems far more logical and "necessary" than Ironhide and Bumblebee...

    Well the thing is, even the actual Deluxes shrank.

    The engineering/transformation on this mold looks great ( thigh legs as thrusters and arms on belly of jet ) , but...it's just that voyager sized margins would have allowed for better allignment of panels and parts. At voyager size, it would have also allowed for a more elegant solution of the golden 'diaper' and perhaps some solution to the panels sticking out from under the wings as well.

    DOTM Deluxe Thundercracker

    NOW were talkin'....

    If you like the new starscream mold...this is a no brainer. If you held off on scream,waiting for a better paint job this is a no brainer.

    This jet OOOoozes Sexy. The Blue its molded in is SO spot on for me. The graphics on the wings...SEXY.....The grey nose...The Yellow tinted canopy...SMOKIN baby..

    THIS IS ONE NICE LOOKIN TRANSFORMER.

    The Mechtek weapon, is the same chansaw that came with Roadbuster, but in that SEXY blue he's got goin on. He also comes with ONE PART of Starscreams weapon, so that when you put them under the wings, it looks okay with two guns...

    In BOT mode.....This robot is SOOoo baddass lookin'. The Blue with silver and red....WOW...The added paint apps on the waist sections...HOT! The decepticon Logo on his shoulder...Im tellin ya...This one is just KICK ASS

    Another thing. Im not sure if its the plastic hes molded in, but mine is MUCH MUCH more solid, and all the joinst are MUCH tighter. This isnt just a repaint, friends...This is a much better version than stock Scream...and I LOOoove that one.

    This is packed ONE per case from what I seen. Pretty sure this will be the next one everyone runs out to get. Lets all hope for a skywarp.

    This isnt just a repaint....This is the BETTER version... The ONLY thing I woulda liked to see was a silver and red paint treatment on the crotch panels....other than that......pretty damn PERFECT
