    Hoorah, it's the worst Starscream design since Cybertron. Animated almost beat it, but at the end of the day, War For Cybertron is the ugliest Starscream ever made.

    For Jet mode... I think you might be right. For robot mode, Bayformer Starscream still takes it. :)

    I will say one thing: Starscream can pass... but if they mess up Bumblebee, they ARE ALL DEAD for me.

    Pfft. Movie Starscream is pure sex. I'd take a million of those over any Cybertron or Animated Starscream.

    Insecthead-gorilla-chicken better than Animated Starscream? I won't try to change your opinion, but you're wrong.

    Animated Starscream is the sex. Movie Starscream is like sex with Susan Boyle.

    Oh nose, wars of the Starscreams! Personally I find this design mediocre. Not as good as Animated, better then the movies. And I only bring those up because they are the more recent ones. My favorite SS mold yet is still Classics. Back to the issue at hand though, this Starscream I am sure will serve his purpose for the game just fine.

    Atleast movie Starscream looks ugly yet menacing and a cool robot overall, this is ugly and lame.

    I´d say you are wrong. And I second the notion the Movie screamer is better. Animated only gets some points for the Berkut alt mode. Animated Starscream is shitty sex, Movie Starscream is awesome sex.

    That said, what happen to the rest wings?

    They've made some decent toys out of it, but the actual design is wretched.

    Quite frankly I don't think it's even debatable.

    Animated Starscream is better in every department. Better proportions, more personality. You won't find a more perfect distillation of everything that makes Starscream Starscream.

    And if we're gonna talk about which is sexier, which do you think gets the fangirls?

    Funny it looks like an alien to me. Wich is what the Transformers are last time I checked. And looks like something that would kill the fuck out of me, wich is what Decepticons do. Animated Starscream looks and is, a joke.

    So, again I ask..Where is the bad part of the design?

    They both look good. And afaik... Movie Starscream is quite the fav with the female audience of TFTM.

    Animated SS sports the classic BellBottoms legs...but also, the Gorilla arms which a lot of movie SS haters point at movie SS for ; so that's kind of double standards there.

    My idea of good design in Transformers is inventive use of alt-mode parts into a strong overall theme with no cheating. I find movie Starscream disjointed and incoherent.

    It's just not a good unified design, like say Movie Optimus or ROTF Sideswipe.

    That's not a double standard, because the arms are balanced out by the legs. It's also clever design, because it's taking something from Movie Starscream and integrating it with the more typical Starscream elements.

    Animated Starscream has those pencil like legs and then huge ass "boots". I don´t find blending at all for example. And I like my Decepticons too fell threatning like the movie oes do. I´d probably laught in Animated Starscream´s face and piss myself in front of the movie one.

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :p

    if you look closer at the movie renders you'll see the gorilla arms claim is really not fair ; they're kinda hanging low yes, but they're not thick.

    And again ; a lot of people do not get his body/frame design ; the main part is still the canopy, the rest of his side torso is light weight frame. The silhouette just resembles a kite ; a kite isn't fat, right ?

    There's different requirements for both. The movie treats its decepticons as monsters, whereas in the cartoon they have to fit into a whole character dynamic.

    He's not supposed to be scary. :wink:
