YouTube - Review of ROTF Leader Class Starscream!!!
Awesome! The transformation looks a lot easier than I thought it'd be.
gald to see a review, but for the life of me I can't understand why it was filmed behind black, along with the shadows it was really hard to follow sometimes.
Looks fantastic! Thanks!
EDIT: Although I will not have you dissing the Voyager class toy. That thing was a marvel of engineering at its size. How dare you equate it to a FAB! Or call it a "clunk of plastic!"
I thought there were boosters on his backpack ?
Great review anyway, can't wait for him !
Still comparing to toys that nobody could possibly own. That's our GenZhao...
Now, now. He DID compare to toys we own.
And it wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't have that big of a collection outside of the stuff that he has onhand at one time to sell.
Looks good. Hmm, Leader SS or Masterpiece Skywarp...decisions, decisions.
Now I reeeeeaaaal want him badly!!!
Wow. That's the first time I've ever thought movie Starscream looked good. I have to admit; that leader class figure makes what is normally a really shitty design into something decent.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I might pick this up.
.........Though I might hold out till I see some G1 colors.
Beautiful, really hoping that the paint apps are better though
That is NICE ...
...You had a Leader Class Prime there with you...
WHY DIDN'T YOU TAKE A COMPARISON SHOT?
Otherwise, this toy looks amazing. Instant buy.
It's a shame the video review was still terrible.
Genzhao can't seem to ever transform toys right... that Voyager Starscream was the saddest thing I've ever seen, and makes me think his transformation of Leader isn't the right way to do it.
The lighting was terrible, and he used a BLACK backdrop. I was actually shifting around in my chair wondering if it was my flat screen monitor to blame at first. It's fitting: His photos washed it out, but his video made it impossible to see.
thanks for the review xiexie
the transformation sequence is pretty interesting... really reminds me of a macross valkyrie a' la jetfire's transformation. legs by the intakes swinging out on a bar. arms folded back. and then on top of that, there's the hatch thing atop the plane that you remove to fold the body in half to reveal the head.
i think we need to give him booster armors
I am so glad that I never bought a Voyager Starscream, that mold just didn't appeal to me enough to warrant a purchase. The Leader-class version is what I've been waiting for.
Glad to see it reviewed too, however there were a few things that took away from the quality of this review and made it difficult to watch.
As others have mentioned, don't use a black backdrop
TURN OFF auto-focus!
Using the ROTF score would have been more appropriate than the dogfight sounds. Those got annoying fast.
The KO Toys logo and whatever that baby crying clip is were overused.
Great video review, awesome figure. The transformation isn't as complex as I thought it's be, not that it's a bad thing. Besides, he looks solid overall.
Hm, definitely looks great, much better than the voyager. Transforming is quite Macross-Valk-ey. Bit of paint would bring out the details more, so that's all good. But, no back boosters - and especially, no balljointed ankles or transforming gun arm? That's very disappointing, ditching the gimmicky electronics and firing missile could have easily freed up budget for those.
Has gone from a must-buy to a maybe.
Not as complicated as Leader Prime, but still a nice and involved transformation. Electronics are well hidden too, though I can't help but think how much more would have been possible if he wouldn't have had to deal with those. Still, a must get.
