    Well, this is my first Review for a Transformer so let me know what I should do to make it better etc.

    Ok, now..

    He has awesome articulation, his shoulders are well articulated, his arm is articulated, his fingers are Extremly articulated, you can put his Fingers in almost all poses, his Leg is articulated but not TOO articulated, but it's enough to put him in alot of poses, his knee is good too, his feet aren't as articulated as everything else, but its still nice. I'll give his articulation a 8/10.

    His Detail is good as well, the battle damage looks very nice, especially in plane mode. I'll give Paint/Detail gets 9.5/10.

    Transformation is SLIGHTLY hard, but it's very cool. Transformation gets 8/10

    F-15 mode is Huge, It looks almost like it doesn't even transform. And the features are cool. Like the nose cone, Engine, and Air Brake. F-15 gets 9.5/10

    Accessories are cool, the small Pilot is cool, but not so detailed. he is not articulated. They also give a thing to hold Megatron's Gun mode (the one that comes with MP-01, MP-04, and 20th Anniversary Prime.) on Starscream's Plane Mode.

    The thing I don't like about him is that his "Hidden missiles" are plain orange, not detailed like the Takara MP-03.

    So Overall I give Starscream a 9.8/10.

    Please tell me how I did for my first review!!! :eek:  ;)

    The review was fine, but I was a little curious about how everything compares to MP-03 in terms of feeling/quality/hinge resistance. I've heard they are supposed to be the same, I just wanted to know for sure.

    I don't own the Takara MP-03 but they fixed the wing problem and I think the Hasbro version is stronger.

    A little short, but not too bad. I like to through in interesting facts, or details, on the figures I "review" or products I review to keep the readers interest or to point out something interesting.

    I just bought a Screamer on eBay simply because I HATE shopping in my local Wal-Mart and it is more convenient for me with my work schedule. I work nights, up late to 2-4AM, and get up at about 10:30AM to 11:00AM.

    BUT, I'm off on Sunday (day after my BIRTHDAY), and I MIGHT try to squeeze by the closest Wal-Mart that MOST scalpers hit. There is always the one on the South side, but I hate going there. Pushy, noisy children and adults and that is BEFORE even going inside.

    I'm SO thankful that we are getting the anime colored version, versus the Takara "Puked on by Trypticon" green version.

    Is the sliding mechanism that slides the upper portion from the bottom portion in robot mode supposed to lock? Because it seems it is too easy to slide up when fiddling with his arms when posing them.

    Also, the smaller wings that flip up and down on his hip kibble(at least on his right one) fall off when you flip them back and forth.

    Other than that, he's awesome.

    It doesn't lock on my Takara one. The weight just kinda holds it there.

    Yep and the folding wings on his kibble fall off my MP03 as well. Luckily they easily enough snap back into place.

    My Starscream's pretty good. Nice tight joints and nothing falls off really easily... The only thing that bothers me is his right tailfin. There's a small scratch in the red paint.. Does anyone know what paint I can use to touch it up?

    Oh and the retail price in Singapore is ridiculous. It's about US$100 give or take...

    There is a tab on the bottom of the cockpit towards the back that inserts into a hole....but it kinda just sits on it. Doesn't exactly slide inside of it and snap into place. It's probably because the cockpit can't go down any further, making it impossible to snap into the hole. Strange...

    Not really. Not unless you count screws and pins.
