    I was just thinking that Prime's Starscream is a much sexier Starscream design than the chunky booted War For Cybertron Videogame Starscream is.

    And as Starscream thinks he's gorgeousness so with Prime's or perhaps even Animated Starscream you could agree that to a greater extent as he has that slinky quality to him... but WFC/FOC Starscream is not something that yells sexy to me (neither was Machine Wars Starscream) I don't know about G1 Starscream.

    So I guess the question is should Starscream actually be "Sexy" and is Prime Starscream "Sexy".

    If he is - does that make it an aspect of his personality he shares with the G1 Starscream's view of himself ?

    He wears stripper heels, that's really all that needs to be said.

    Starscream can be sleek and streamlined, emphasising speed over power, yes.

    If you equate that to sexy, fair enough. But really, what you're talking about is a sleek design.

    TFP Starscream is a slimy little weasel, G1 Starscream had a limitless (and troublesome) ambition but both don't learn from their mistakes.

    Is this what girls think when they see Starscream? Starscream you ladies man you!

    Should Starscream be sexy? I think he should be what interests more people to him. I'm not really against certain characters charming the female audience.

    Is Prime Starscream sexy? Uhm.....I don't think he's sexy. But maybe girls do. Or maybe it depends upon a person's taste.

    But Starscream really has been more of a punching bag in season 1 than anything else( a lot of which were due to his ego). I really feel he had a lot of wasted potential.

    I think the seeker body type has always been aesthetically appealing, even in the boxy G1 days. A lot of people prefer the look of sleek streamlined TFs over big chunky ones. As for Prime Starscream, he does seem to be designed to look more feminine than usual. He has the slender body type that we usually see in fembots, and it's very difficult to look at his feet and not see slutty high heels. :lol 

    That doesn't look sexy to me personally, but I can see where it might to someone else. (Knockout, on the other hand, does seem to have been deliberately designed with at least some sex appeal in mind.)

    Starscream is absolutely sexy, seriously. It's amazing how much sex appeal an animated character can have. My 32 year old cousin is still desperately in love with the Little Mermaid. G1 Starscream is very sexually appealing, he would be cougar fodder or a playboy if he were a man......

    As for how he views himself, well he definitely feels very superior, very sleek and very good at what he does (and he is) but I am not sure if 'sexy' is how he sees himself. Robots don't have sex, (except Jazz wants to have his way with me, obviously) so sex appeal probably isnt an aspect they attribute to themselves - serious answer.

    If he was a man he would probably see himself as absolutely the sexiest thing alive and would probably be one of those men who has pictures of himself in Calvin Kleins all over his house, posing on a fur rug, lounging by the pool etc.

    Let me rephrase this question:
    Why shouldn't Starscream be sexy?

    He's a flier, I guess that a streamlined and sleek body would help him when he's flying (Aerodynamics).
    There's a reason why jets look the way they look.

    I don't know why people find him sexy.
    Maybe it's his voice-actor (we're talking about Prime), the hooker-heels, the long legs, the waist to hip-ratio, the application of "male-gaze" on a giant robot or all of it together;
    I don't know.

    Seekers have always been sexy. What I think makes Starscream even more sexy is his smirk. And voice. That's all. :p

    Pfft, that's nothing. There was this one guy that used to post here (not going to say who for obvious reasons) that would post long discussions about Transformers having genders and how they make babies.

    Way creepier than this, I assure you.

    Sexy? no...sleek and streamlined? yes. However, there's always going to be a sub-section of the "fandom" that will consider him...sexy......:puke:

    The closest he should get to sexy is "Bowie-esque"

    I'll admit, I clicked on this thread out of sheer curiosity.

    But anyways, Starscream is not "sexy", at least in the way you seem to think so. The reason he's rather thin in both Animated and Prime is because that's a stereotypical feature of sneaky, silvertounged plotters. Like Starscream. It's a visual indication of a trait of the personality we all know Starscream for.

    WFC Starscream...well, EVERYBODY in those games are rather blocky (except the two females, obviously), it's the asthetic. And personally, his snide, usually condecending-of-everybody-else tone makes up for the lack of the schemer body type.
