I just got my ROTF Starscream. All too excited until I read the instruction. It appears that originally ROTF Starscream has at least two more articulations (as circle in red): The fingers/claws and the missles launchers. May be they want to cut cost, but if they cut they better cut it across the board. I certainly don't want to see the Japan version will have these extra articulation while the rest of the world don't.
