    Stickers aside, this is shaping up to be another banner line.

    Starscream's head is a socket on a ball joint neck. I didn't measure it while I had it off, but it appeared to be the same size as Cyclonus, so I'd say around 4-5mm ball (definitely a size bigger than the Titan Master ball).

    Okay, thanks. Kind of figured that it wouldn't be Titan Master compatible.

    Now to find out if there any known female bot heads around that socket size?

    The symbol on mine is like that. I think this is the nicest Beachcomber ever. It's just too cool.

    Mine is even, but the left half looks like it needs a second coat. It's about half transparent. Still, he is awesome!

    Used a coupon to get PotP Starscream for what I think he's worth, but now I've screwed myself. I had planned to hold out for a Thundercracker but now I've fallen afoul of The Curse of the Seekers. I can't pass up on a Gestalt Thundercracker if one becomes available but now I'll have to get Skywarp if they make one as well. :banghead:  Anyway I'm happier with him than I expected. I can deal with his Bot mode proportions, he makes a good torso though his jet mode is pretty silly looking. I call this guy Jetlag. Damn, I really want the regular G1 Jets in CW form.

    Still loathe the combining concept, but the painted hands and feet really do help a lot. More cohesion and overall strength.
    Well done!

    No luck with finding OP, and I skipped Rodimus (geezus Target, did ya only open one case?). And I possibly unwisely put Grimlock down: because I had Amazon credit to spend, only to find the price on Amazon jumping 5 bucks and the sole Grimlock on shelves disappear overnight.

    On the positive end, I did score Windcharger and Beachcomber and both very clean in the QC dept. And a Slash, at retail price, on Amazon.
    The Legends class is really nailing it this time around. So much so that they feel more like another wave of TR than the beginning of a new line. I say this as someone who rarely bought the size class ever before in my decade of collecting.
