    I'm not going to deny that the plane mode now looks better, but I'm kind of baffled why you would do this. Isn't it cheaper and more effective to get an F-22 toy or model kit? You turned Starscream into an F-22 with big seam lines and no landing gear.

    I'm not too fond of TFTM Starscream either, but I always thought the allure of a Transformer toy is that it can change back into a robot.

    It looks like he has two Starscreams. So he altered one and kept the Premium Starscream. That's what I would do.

    Ok. I also have 2 Premiums. Watching your stop motion, I will now take apart one of them. Very cool!

    Why, again?

    I get that the movie Starscream mold is a good deal on the hefty side, but the RotF mold fixed most, if not all, of that.

    And even when all of the bot parts are taken off of the first mold, it becomes too thin, and again doesn't look like the jet it's supposed to be.

    THIS.

    Also, check out the pic : http://www.electricwindmillcar.com/pictures/f22burningfuel.jpg

    The canopy silhouette flows into the body ; i.e. the area around the canopy isn't supposed to be flat. The new ROTF mold really does the F22 more justice.

    I think he said why. "Then if you want own your making stop motion, you can take out part of Movie Starscream's arms and legs, looking easy fit."

    The new mold makes the jet mode look cool but he's talking about making the old one look better.
