    Hey guys my first post.

    I just purchased my movie preview Optimus and Starscream and I noticed the picture of Starscream on the back of the box has a different head than the actual figure. anyone know if this is simply an old picture used before his head design was finalized or perhaps something else?

    I find that often the box art depicts them as way nicer than they really are, usually through the depiction of non-existent paint jobs.

    Target SW Ultra Mag's Ultra Magnus is the biggest (worst) example of this I can think of from recently. Also, for commemorative Soundwave they depict him as the non-protruding door version on the box (the original, not the soundblaster mold) and yet...

    I think this head is better than the actual head they're using for the movie.

    Looks more like Waspinator than Starscream.

    Huh. I never bothered to actually look at pictures of the card. That's such an improvement over the actual figure it might have made me want to pick it up. Definately much more fearsome.

    Actually, I think this head might match the concept art that was leaked a year ago. I'll go try to find it.

    It's better than the slimey movie head but way off what I want to see as Starscream.

    I'd really love to see that head sculpt used on another toy.

    I think that head might be closer to what Thundercracker's head look like of the movie toy

    The Starscream head on back of the package is similar to the one Don drew in the prequel comic. My guess is it's an older design that got scrapped.
