    New pics have come up featuring the front and back packaging designs for TF2:ROTF Voyager class Starscream and Optimus Prime

    Click here to see the packaging pics

    The Starscream seems to be a retool, or even a brand new sculpt, but in my oponion, doesn't offer a whole lot more than the previous movie version.

    The Optimus appears to be a repaint of the first Voyager Optimus

    If you scroll down, you can also see pics of Leader class Optimus, and a repaint of Ironhide.

    Mod Edit: New, clearer images!

    Are they determined to NOT give Starscream hands? :)

    Damn it there are so many characters that may be worth buying a second time. WTF with the ironhide after we have already had the premium!!

    I saw a hand on starscream under the launcher on his right hand.!!

    Good call, I can see it now! Hopefully those missles can retract and we can display him with hands, I will buy him in that case!

    SHoot I just saw the screen battle bumblebee! I will end up with like 5 bumblebees not including repaints!! Its nice to see all of these but I will be an even more broke college student than now this summer.

    Ultimate, premium deluxe, the new one, Rotf, and the 1974 camaro one.

    Back on topic, it says that his launchers pop out so we can for sure display starscream with hands!!!

    Starscream looks quite badass all tatted up.

    Well it certainly looks like Starscream has some fingers there on his cannons, so maybe the guns can retract and actually give him hands. His head looks a bit on the large side though. I don't know if it'll look better with his legs extended more or not though. Awesome looking alt. mode though.

    I wonder if they'll put out a "Movie 1" version of Starscream, without all the cyberglyphics.

    Starscream definitely does have hands under those cannons. But this new toy just appears to be ... well, fat and stumpy. Unless his legs are mistransformed in those packaging pics, of course (which I doubt).

    Hoping for a more accurate Leader version.

    EDIT: 'ere, hang on... the bio says "perhaps, when the time is right, [Starscream will] bring Megatron back". Bring Megatron BACK? Very interesting, a Starscream that wants to lead the Decepticons but still have Megatron around.

    Love how Starscream's alt mode looks, very nice.

    His legs seem a bit stubby though, makes his bot mode look off.

    Don't like the deco on screamers jet mode at all. I dig the hands and the sleekness of the jet though...

    New cannons on ironhide look great,

    Glad they didn't do a new voyager prime

    Starscream....it's like hes cursed or something. I imagine we will be seeing as many leg mods as we did hand mods for the first mold. I can not believe they used the deco from the comic though.

    According to Alex Milne, that deco with the tattoos appears in the movie itself.

    You must have not owned the previous mold then. This does offer a whole lot more than the old mold - He's more accurate in both modes (especially jet mode), has hands and doesn't have giant rotating missile launchers under his wings.

    The Premium won't be available when ROTF comes out. What, you think they're not going to release a toy of an on-screen character because collectors already own the previous version? There are millions of potential customers around the world who don't own it, so Hasbro doesn't expect you to buy everything they make. That's the point of Hasbro marketing most of their products to children: there are far, far more children than collectors, and new children are being introduced to Transformers every year.

    Besides, this is a retool with new, more accurate weapons.

    A Starscream with hands, finally!

    Weird that he may bring Megatron back though...

    Starscream looks slightly better than the original with the more accurate head

    so not only does megatron have toys and polished concept art, but also starscream's bio suggests he will be brought back.
