    Certainly looks better than the Classics Seeker mold, which has had it's run.

    Not for me, I don't like either mode particularly.

    Although it looks like a decent mold, the Classics Seeker mold will always be my preferred Seeker mold. The only thing I don't like about it is its size, and given the recent trend with TFs getting smaller, I don't think FOC Starscream will fix that problem.

    Classics seeker mold is still awesome, but it would be nice to see it get updated with a bit more articulation. That said comparing FOC to Classics is really comparing apples to oranges isn't it? I could see comparing FOC SS to Titanium perhaps though. In that case, FOC all the way! I think of FOC as the 'prequal' companion to 'Classics'. Both FOC and Classic-verse figs go on one shelf for me.

    No.

    I'm buying it, but it's not replacing the current Classics Starscream for me.

    Not a big fan of teh new mold - well at least until we get more/better pics.

    Oh, and I have grave doubts about it actually making it to reatil with a projected release date of spring 2013.

    Since I am no big fan of Earth mode jets or real airplane at all, definitely prefer the WOF mold.

    I think I'm going with the new masterpiece instead. That one doesn't use a cybertronian mode which my friend Optibotimus said is cheap because cybertron modes don't have to resemble anything in real life.

    The F-15 Starscream will always be the best for me. That being said, I really like the WfC/FoC mold and will move mountains to get my hands on it.

    His boots are a bit stompy and in CGI form his wings are a bit small - the toy fixes some of that though with decent shape and good wings on it. I think it's supposed to have that Tetrajet feel to it like Galaxy Force Starscream has.

    I still prefer Galaxy Force Screamer - in fact he remains my favourite Starscream toy at least until they make a really decent F-22 or F-15 that is Voyager or Ultra Size or unless I get really over excited by one of the hearts of Steel Ones or find I really like the Prime one. But I tend to think of Prime Starscream as a different Character to G1 Starscream like I do BW2nd Starscream/Hellscream.
