    It is poor. A black head would have made a lot of difference.

    Strangely though, Legends toys don't get equal amounts of paint. Some get a lot while some barely get any at all.

    These new Legends are sweet!
    Add some elbow articulation to Starscream, which actually looks like it'd be easy, and it'd be perfect!

    Heh, he's got the fake canopy transformation. And no forward leg articulation.

    I wonder if this Starscream can fit in his pretender shell.

    Alt. mode is great, but the bot mode is ruined for me by the all-grey head. If it had looked like the stock photos, it would have been perfect...

    I think those wings would be too wide.

    No forward leg articulation? Didn't see that before.
    Bummer.

    For me all flaws are forgivable as a Legends figure, except for the paintjob: They only needed to add some black paint to the head and canopy and it would have improved the figure by a mile - heck, some comic-blue would have been *something*..they're already using that anyway.

    Weird why they'd save on that..did the production of all the other cool upcoming TF toys cost so much they had to cut down on paint on a select couple of figures?..

    His lack of paint apps disturbs me. The head is all wrong because of this. Hmm...

    Lacking paint = -4

    Rubsign = +1

    This is actually one of the best Legends ever. If you figure out the transformation, it's pretty innovative.

    Yeah, but the actual canopy is right behind the fake one. Forward leg articulation would be nice, but they always have to sacrifice something for legends class. I think they made the right choice.

    It's too bad they skimped on the paint, but it shouldn't be too much trouble to paint the head myself.

    All things considered, it's great looking seeker mold. Looks like it can also do the conehead mode.

    Q. How hard is it to bust out a black paint pen and paint his head?

    A. Not hard at all, and definitely not a deal breaker. At least his face is painted, THAT'S what sucks to paint.

    WANT.

    :lol  So they painted the face but not the head. A painted black head would've done wonders on him.

    I'll still be getting him. I'm a sucker for G1 Legends.

    Just noticed now his head isn't painted black. (everytime I think of Starscream I think of the old Marvel comics style, where it was his face and forehead that were black, but most of the helmet was grey)

    Big fuckin' whoop. The figure looks like an amazng little Starscream. I can't believe anyone would pass on him because of the head colour. Look at that guy. He's even smirking and everything!
