Wow, even repaints of 18-month-old molds get utterly mistranformed!
The face on Ramjet makes his mouth look very different from the original Starscream.
I like it.
[rant]You know, I never have understood the appeal of the alternate head for movie Voyager Starscream. Presumably it's supposed to be more G1-esque, and I suppose it is, but to me it's just a botched attempt to compromise between two unreconcilable artstyles, and that as a result looks like G1 and Movie Starscream had a bizarre mutant child. Which was then beaten about the head with a plank. And don't even get me started on that weird, expressionless light-piped mouth.
I know a lot of people disliked the avian-insectoid look of the original Starscream toy's head, but at least that actually looked like the one in the film...this thing just doesn't look like anything.[/rant]
Ramjet's head looks like a Stormtrooper.
Ramjet is looking good so far. The brown is a bit odd, but is easily overlooked. I really like the paint apps on his head. Skywarp on the other hand, everything looks good, except for his head. Hopefully I'll be able to find someone who doesn't want their Ramjet's head, or one of the original Starscream heads from the earlier versions of this mold. I won't be surprised if Dirge and Thrust get made eventually. Maybe not until TF3, but there's a good chance that they will be made at some point.
I agree, it's a bit silly. I've seen many TF collectors transform their movie Starscream wrong, but these two take the cake! It's not like the mold came out yesterday.
I personally like this mold, so I'll plan on getting Ramjet at least, maybe my brother will get Skywarp. I'm still interested in knowing how these will be released.
that will be the ugliest skywarp in my skywarp collection, SOB!!!
Exactly what I was thinking. Like some kind of specialized Clone Trooper.
I'd call that gold, echoing Classics Ramjet.
I disagree. I've always thought it looks a lot like this:
And so, I like it.
I was thinking the same, makes me feel better about wanting it.
Wow, you're right ! Anyways, Without a doubt picking up Ramjet, though I'll leave Skywarp, already have thundercraker.
