    I'm not that good at reviews so I'll be doing mine a little diffrently.

    Starscream is a good solid figure. He looks rather close (not perfect) to his on screen counterpart. He is nice and stable in bot mode and stands somewhere between movie SS and MP SS. In jet mode I feel the wings would look better placed further back. As it is jet dosen't seem as long and sleek as the animation does. Plenty of pics can be seen by clicking the images below.

    Can you please say something about the plastic quality? I got a Bulkhead and noticed the plastic is very hard and of high quality. And is the overall figure of good quality in your opinion?

    Plastic quality is good. I'm no plastic expert but it seems just as good as any other has/tak/tom release. No bendy plastic, even the nosecone is normal harder plastic.

    If you don't like the Teen Titans style, why waste taking the time to type negative crap?

    I love the style, loved the premiere movie, and can't wait for the toys.

    If I thought different than that - I never even would've clicked on this thread. And, if I had out of curiosity, I still would've left without saying anything.

    nice diagrams. I really like the look of this toy line, it seems to incorporate the best toy tech around. Im hoping that it will help generate more interest in tf's with younger generations.

    Y'know, snarky comments work SO much better when correctly punctuated.

    It looks very similar to the Armada Starscream, which I also liked. I would rather the blue be a shade of white, however.

    And when they make sense. I fail to see how this style can possibly be connected with the famous musician Ray Charles. Besides, rhetorically asking who drew them makes little sense when the thread is about a toy.

    Also:

    Don't worry. The actual figure (not this test shot) is a more grey-blue shade.

    God I want this guy so bad. Even the chin of doom has grown on me, heh.

    Only complaint I really have is the colorscheme. Just doesn't feel like SS when he has TC's colors.

    Even still, the figure looks amazing.

    I think he meant that he hates the style so much that it looks like a blind person drew them.

    Again, I fail to see the purpose in wasting one's time to even go into a thread about something you hate, just to voice your negativity. Apparently, there's nothing better to do.

    I have one question: When the frick are we going to be able to buy these!? :cry

    I like how you highlighted the articulation and gimmicks on the pictures in your review.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk, making fun of a blind man who was an excellent musician is a no-no, and an even bigger no-no if you can't capitalize his name right


    I'm loving this Animated line-up, b I wanted to restrict myself to a few main figures, but the designs are so cool, I want all of them!

    Very nice toy, and very good review... I wish professional reviewers would go into depth on useful info like articulation points and gimmicks more often. Thanks for sharing!

    I share you pain.:cry 


    I don't know when it stopped, but the blue doesn't bother me anymore. It looks... fitting. Maybe because I subconciously hope that it will return to it's grey/blue colours as last seen, or because I think the dull-grey of the show is unattractive.

    I only wish the jet mode resembled the onscreen version more, as well as the robot more. Nonetheless, I doubt it will be fixed, but its still a nice toy regardless. Don't know if anyone noticed this yet, but it does seem like an homage to G1 Starscream's F-15 mode, with the vertical stabilizers with the tips looking similar, just futuristic. Not surprised, since the cartoon network team working on this is comprised of g1 fans. Nice suttle nod.
