    Still wish he was colored...a bit more like SS, as of now he just..well SCREAMS Thundercracker to me. All in all though looks to be a great fig, can't wait to get one.

    I like the early prototype's colors better.

    Yeah, the (possibly) final version looks too dark to me. The lighter blue works better for the mold so far as I am concerned.

    Would look nice in black though...

    It's interesting to see the different variations that we've seen in pictures so far. Personally, I'm hoping that the middle one turns out to be the final production coloring. I can't remember who posted it, but, I remember someone mentioning that one of the Hasbro reps said something to the point that they were tired of producing TF's that were mostly white. I personally think that they could have gone with a nice grey coloring, and would have had the option to repaint him blue as Thundercracker later on.

    Mind you, it's entirely possible the colors are off due to the camera in the last one.

    The middle one is the best one in my opinion. I thought Starscream was gray in the show...?

    They still need to fix the head. His face is all crammed up at the top of it.

    I just noticed how much that looks like an elongated G1 SS

    Ultimum Prime's(isn't that megatroptimus?) SS look like a mix between the blue of the early prototype and the red of the production prototype

    The blue SS is too much like Thundercracker for my taste.

    I love the body mold for this SS, but that face is horrible.

    IMO the middle picture looks like the camera settings are off.

    I like the Starscream in the second picture better, but it is indeed too hard to compare from the different set up of those pics.

    Man, why is Animated taking so long? Honestly, I don't care if this figure is blue, he's Starscream enough for me, and the mold just screams badassery-ness.

    There _were_ three. Now there's only two; MTO's photo was removed, it looks like.

    I just can't like this Starscream. The Thundercracker colors don't bother me as much as the horrible proportions...and I usually couldn't care less about that since they're robots...that and I absolutely hate the alt mode. More power to those of you who dig it, I wish I could but I just can't. If they repaint it in Skywarp colors I probably won't be able to say no however.
