    Just to get the ball rolling...

    PROS

    -a new Starscream, dammit! (I'm a Starscream completist)
    -headsculpt (and wicked light piping for the eyes)
    -multiple weapon mounting options
    -weapons can combine
    -spinning barrels on the weapons
    -clear canopy (could have been lazily painted)
    -ankle tilt
    -gerwalk mode

    CONS

    -on the small side
    -feels and looks a bit cheap
    -somewhat lazy transformation
    -so-so paint job (some blue missing on one of the feet)
    -floating shoulders

    With WST Ravage

    Real ones this time...

    And the mandatory upskirt shot

    One of the better figures in this line. Accurate, well proportioned, hollow parts that don't go to the point of annoying me. Will pick up.

    Floating shoulders?

    These pictures prove to me that I will not hesitate in the least in hitting the 'add to cart' button once they hit HTS or TrU. Really a great design all around.

    Any scale shots next to other FoC figures?

    The arms are not really attached to the body.

    It's not a first, but it's no excuse for a poor design either. They could have moved the shoulder plates down and in a bit to connect them to the torso.

    I think of all the Transformers that have used this basic transformation scheme, only Terradive has bothered to lock the shoulder plates in.

    G2 Smokescreen? Nope. Cyberjets? Nope. Energon Starscream? Nope. Cybertron Thundercracker? Definitely not.

    Not a big deal. Still looks pretty tight.

    I keep coming back to drool over the pictures. This may be one of the rare times I buy multiples just to do it.
    That, and I need to make a Transtech Starscream out of one.

    His chest looks sort of hollow. Can you post a shot from the side, with his arms raised?

    Thanks! That spine piece seems to do a decent enough job filling that void.

    Just a pet peeve of mine...but could you get a few shots of the figure from behind? Lately it seems that people have been neglecting 360 degree shots of toys...

    It's the same size, might have been photo tricks.

    Eh, honestly I'm not feelin' it. It seems like a cool toy, and it's certainly accurate but I never liked the FOC Seeker Design much. Still, this is great for those who did like it so it's cool for you people.

    Any chance that we'd be able to get comparison photos with some of the FOC figures/WFC Decepticons?

    Thanks.

    I'm so buying the Takara version. I want Starscream to look as good as possible.

    It's out in Asia now, so give it a couple of weeks.

    Though to be honest I'm sort of surprised it didn't hit the US before Black Friday.
