    Does anyone know if the “Starscream” from the Bumblebee movie will be a part of the Studio Series lineup? I know Hasbro is going to include a couple of bots from the BB movie, but I didn’t know if “Starscream” will be a part of that too.

    I’m really loving my SS Megatron! It’s a great size, great sculpt, and has a fun transformation. If I had any issues with it, it would be that some pieces will fall off with ease, and the left leg on my copy is rather loose, though it was like that since first took him out of the box. P.s. sorry about the tilted picture, I don’t know how to put it in a proper position.

    Has anyone figured out why Starscream has tabs on the insides of his thighs? They're not used for either mode, I wonder what the purpose of them is...

    Just took a look at my screamer, and I’m not sure either tbh. Maybe it was an concept that got scrapped before release.

    I just want to see a robot mode comparison of Studio Series Ironhide and the Dark of the Moon voyager.

    Oh, those tabs are used to allow Starscream's weapon to be stored in jet mode.

    Wow. I think Ironhide might be the first figure where I seriously consider past incarnations as options.

    I definitely agree. The HFTD deluxe was actually a lot better proportionally, and once you get rid of the weird cannon on the right arm, its good to go. That said, I'd still like to see what else this figure has in store

    Consider how the previous Movie Starscream toys store the weapons in vehicle mode, the way of how SS Starscream store its weapon isn't really the stupidest thing that I've see.
    (I don't hate the old 2007 Movie Voyager Starscream figure, but the "Weapon storage" of that figure in jet mode is truly...... something to behold.)

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I actually prefer not storing the weapons at all unless they can be 100% hidden away underneath or inside the alt mode. I don't like weapony bits sticking out of my alt modes.

    The HFTD deluxe is nice, but it’s too small for my liking, and I never liked the colors on it. Besides, my OCD demands I complete the glorious Movie One ensemble.

    Seeing it out of package, the SS Ironhide does look a little weird. I think the reason is that the waist is too narrow and thus the hips are too close together.

    Whatever, still getting it

    The MPM is certainly nice and it seems like this SS Hide is borrowing a little from that engineering.

    I'm a little weary though only because MPM is ridiculously expensive (for me at least) and it would be hard to put down money for it.

    I'm not saying it's right but that's why I'm leaning towards an upscaled and improved KO only because it would be a little bit cheaper than a standard MPM. Who knows though maybe I could find an MPM on a good discount. I guess I'd still have to see what the MPM looks like with movie bots from the '09 era as well.
