    I was just wondering if we have a new record size Starscream toy. It's obviously larger than the Masterpiece. Not even the Cybertron supreme seems big enough to hold a Cobra Commander in the cockpit.

    Can anyone confirm with photos?

    Comparison shots with the G1 and some android from X-Men didn't help. Thanks though.

    Can't say I didn't try. It might be easy enough if you have the G1 version and the Supreme version to get some kind of scale.

    Don't have the Starstriker but have supreme screamer. Even if the cockpit were hollow there's no way any gijoe could fit into the cockpit. Starstriker is now the biggest Starscream

    Rough guess would be twice the size of Supreme Starscream.

    He's probably not far off from the size of the night raven.

    I know its not Starscream in the picture but it's the same mold. I don't think I'm going to open my SDCC Screamer so his retail repaint will have to do for the pic.

    Funny, but this only helps the speculation on the next MP seeker mold being an f-14.

    Second hand info does indicate that Hasbro's G.I.Joe staff are more open to the idea of a full crossover line than Transformers staff.

    I can definitely envision a MP Starscream F-14 in a Skystriker deco. Unless the mold outright sucks, it would sell like crazy.

    I only meant that it helps accept the idea after seeing an f14-ish plane in SS' colors. It actually looks good. These rumors for me are still only rumors, even if they come from an apparently very trustworthy source.

    Not at all what I was talking about

    I was saying that just because one design team used this jet for a starscream does not mean the other team will

    However, I do believe a full crossover line will NEVER happen.

    Transformers is at it's best when it's real world cars and planes. They simply can not be done at the 3 3/4 scale unless every toy was leader class and up.

    Gijoe fans don't seam that interested in small scale figures like sigma 6. So doing it at human alliance scale seams pointless.

    Best we can hope for is homages like this set
