    Here's my take on how he could have been

    Alt mode
    Took movie 2 Starscreams arms and mounted them to a movie 1 body.
    Modded the missiles to attach to the hands under the wings.

    Bot mode
    Hands and arms were modded to have full motion in most directions

    The new arms attach directly to the shoulder but some adjustments to the shoulder joints were needed to minimize floppiness.

    I'll put up some comparisons with Ramjet and all the seekers in a bit.

    The problem is this dude still only looks good when viewed from above in the Jet form, he's just so darned thick, cluttered, and un-aerodynamic as a jet.

    I like the mold but the new legs are really weak and can barely pose.

    I wasn't going to bother with the RotF Starscream mold...but this mod looks like it may fix my biggest problem with the original SS. With a little work and some new joints, it looks like you could find a way to fold the arms closer to the legs while in jet mode to get a sleeker look to it.

    Also, would you be able to take any pics of his bot mode with the shoulders turned up all the way? Everyone always seems to leave them sticking out, but he just looks so much better when they're turned up properly.

    Oh yeah! The pictures look great. I like the jet mode of the new Starscream but the arms make this one look a whole lot better. No more neo shifter arms on mine.

    Since the leader Starscream is coming the new Voyager is bash fodder.

    I wish I could say that, but I need it for my Seeker collection.
