    Yep, and I really like the setting of this one: past, present and protoform …

    Prime's robot mode is pretty nice but they dont transform; not unless you call "thrown into a wall and crumpled up" an alt mode.

    It's post like these that show even the most level-headed people can be so single-minded.

    The flame missles are about the only thing I hate about them, I'm just glad Starscream has real missles/gun barrels.

    The detail is great, they look plenty posable, They look like awsome toys, though more could have been done to make them look more like themselves.

    Wow, the pics are gorgeous. Prime looks better there than in real life. :)

    I'm sad that the Starscream Protoform toy has better arms than the one with the Jet alt mode. I'd prefer the bot mode to have arms with hands ( instead of just guns ), but I also prefer the alt mode to be a disguise of a machine. Not a turd from space. I may have to get both and see if I can put protoscreamer's arms on earthscreamer's body.

    Maybe we'll get some more protoform figures from the new prequel comics?

    the protoforms are between a basic and a deluxe, and the earth starscream is a voyager. I dont think that would work out well

    I'm surprised to say that I've liked the protoforms since the first time we've seen them, even though back then I was very anti-movie. I like the fact that Prime is such a unique design (grey body, claw feet), I like Starscream being gold, and I actually like the idea of them transforming into meteors to enter the atmosphere

    The voyager Starscream is kinda small for a voyager IMO. Depending on the size of this guy, it might be doable. Especially considering they made his earth mode arms too long to begin with. He looks like an ape.

    I have it, and it's not small. Pretty wide and imposing actually.

    I have Prime and it does transform.

    He means the alt mode looks crap. If I get it it would definite stay in robot mode.
