lol 'bout time someone got him with the missiles. Looks awesome.
So that's what those flip up things are for.
I don't like the gun hands. At least with Ironhide you can take them off. Therwise it's a decent figure, at least compared to the movie design.
This could have been so much better without the missle cannons.
Well, sorry, but G1 was over 20 years ago.
I don't think the time of G1 has anything to do if whether or not someone likes a toy.
He wants hands like in the good ol' days.
G1's on the shelf right now
G1 has nothing to do with the fact that this SS is a toy unnecessarily saddled with a bad gimmick.
I mean bloody hell, the main gimmick involves the user pushing the plane on a flat surface so the cannons rotate and auto-fire the missiles.
The plane. On the ground.
It's not necessary. As you can see in the first picture, he can carry the missiles with the holsters. And unless they're paralyzed, your fingers can still spin the dials with your fingers for some air action. The missiles don't autofire btw.
One ugly mother
Ah, you took the airplane pic! NICE! He looks alot better with the missiles on the racks in plane mode, more balanced, and like he'd just heavily armed instead of wearing two giant cannon arms.
Looks SO much better with the missiles! I always did kinda like this fig, but the arms seemed really short. The missiles make it look a lot better!
That looks so awesome. Wish he had been a larger sized figure, though, so the guns wouldn't look so ginormous... but, I do love the ED-209 look on him!
He looks just a tiny bit better every time.
Missles really help the vehicle mode's look, for me.
Robot mode, I'm not really stunned. I kinda imagined that his gunhands would look like gunhands with plastic missles plugged in once you...plug the plastic missles in.
Looks like he has chopsticks!
Definately won't be kitting out mine with missiles. I'll call them "gattling guns" or something...
They don't look too bad on the jet though.
IMO Starscream is still the worst movie toy.
Most of the other ones are really good, but he just doesn't work.
Not sure where that comment is directed as no one said anything about g1. What I meant was I owuld rather see him with the hands we saw than the giant guns. And while Ironhide has giant guns, they can be removed and he has hands. And it seems to me like they could have engineered the guns pop off instead of making them his hands. This is my only issue with the hands turning into guns thing. Even Ultimate BB has a gun arm, which really makes me not like it.
I like a lot of the movie designs, and even SS's movie design looks good, just not for Starscream as (unlike other designs) there seems to be none of the elements that say Starscream like in all other incarnations, not just g1.
