    Is terrible. At least with Jetfire they came somewhat close and with Megatron they came really close. Cullen did Optimus, and leader Brawl didn't get a voice, so that leaves this abomination (voice-wise)

    That is the only thing hindering Starscream in my opinion, his terrible sounding voice. Sounds so weak compared to the movie.

    If a flaw could be pointed out in leader ss, its hasbro dropping the ball (no pun intended) with starscream and his lame voice.

    Anyone else agree?

    Doesn't really bother me that much. Like any other figure I have that has a voice chip, I activated the sounds a few times the first day I had it and won't again for some time to come.

    Other than G1 Shock wave I've never cared much about lights and sounds in my TFs.

    They most certainly DIDN'T get close with Jetfire either. Just saying.

    I didn't like Starscream's voice either, but at least it does sound like *a* Starscream...I agree with you but it's not stopping me from getting this awesome toy :)

    Certainly true for me as well. but it just seems like such a shame to get such an awesome figure only to have that godawful voice.

    And I dont like Jetfires voice either, but it resembles its movie voice far more than Starscream does.

    Did you read my last post, compared to Starscream, they hit the nail on the head.

    So what is the deal with these sound chips, they hve all the audio clips at their disposal, heck even Lucas made those figures years ago with the Commtech things that said the actual lines from the movie.

    I personally dont have much of a problem with Screamers voice chip.
    Hey, it could be worse, right?

    Except for the masterpiece toys, the lights and sound never seem to be used well. That being said, I have found that if anything many of the sounds (voices especially) are even more annoying on the ROTF toys that they were from the first movie.

    About the only thing that would interest me would be headlights or light up eyes that I could actually switch on, leave on, then turn off. Or maybe some well placed vehicle sounds that didn't trigger at weird times and weren't tied to the lights. I absolutely HATE those sudden short blasts of strobe lights and noise, followed by nothing.

    Movie Jetfire is English and toy Jetfire is Scottish, but hey, it's all the same island, right? 9_9

    Starscream's toy voice is pretty bad but kind of endearing to me anyway. He sounds like a little kid. "You'll never defeat STAWSCWEAM!"

    I honestly don't mind the voice because they could have also put a dying chipmunk instead of that voice. Edit: I mean as in they could have put a worse voice but the did not.

    I don't find the voice that bad at all. As others have said, it doesn't really sound like Movie Starscream but it's the right kind of high-pitched whine for the character. I like the lines themselves, too.

    Yep. The batteries come out of my Leaders almost immediately after removing them from the packaging.

    Most likely this. The voice is pretty bad for me.

    I don't mind it at all. I make him talk constantly. Although I would have preferred a more Adler-esque voice, I like it fine. And the voice and the lines are far better than whoever recorded the rather lame "Jetfire's my name."

    It's certainly not the greatest voice, but it's not horrid by any means. It rather fits his G1 persona a bit more, even if this is the movie form.

    My only real issue with the voice is that he should have just gone and pronounced "scream" instead of "scweam." Only thing that bugs me.
