    How alike are these two? Hard to compare them when one is stilled sealed. Will any provide me some pictures? I like Starscream's wings but I don't think he will fit into the back of Dreadwing. Thanks inadvance. Olds

    I don't own either one, but from what I've heard, the only similarity between the two is that they're both jets and have identical transformations.

    Starscream's too bulky to fit in Dreadwing. Their transformations are similar but that is pretty much it. Smokescreen's alot more flimsy

    The transformations aren't exactly identical, but they are very similar.

    Anything you might have heard about Starscream being a remould was a lie.

    They're very similar in design, but are definelty not the same mold, nor share any of the same parts.

    I have both - I'll take comparison pics tonight. They transform the same, but many of the parts are moulded differently.

    As you can see, they're similar in size, and share an almost identical transformation, but that's pretty much where the similarities end. Energon SS wouldn't fit in BB/Dreadwing at all. He's too thick and blocky compared to the G2 Smokejumper mold.

    Yeah they are similar in design but both completely different moulds. Energon Starscream will not fit into the back of Dreadwing/wind/BB, there is however a fan made alternate transformations for Mirage that looks lot like Dreadwing/wing/BB and can accommodate Energon Starscream.

    i love the energon SS mold...and had 2 versions of the other mold...the energon mold is more homage to the g2, but with far superior styliing....

    Smokescreen has a much sleeker jet mode, and better articulation(its not as hindered as Starscream). Overall, I like Smokescreen a lot better.

    Smokescreen is rather fragile- his joints wear easily, and my childhood G2 Smokescreen figure was loved to death to the point where it was but a pile of parts.

    It's the opposite in my case. I bought a loose G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen back in 2002, both have solid joints still, and the En. Screamer had his elbow joints loose and the hip joints somewhat loose, just after a few transformations and posings.
