    On the back of the protoform SS box, the graphic says his intelligence is 8 or 9.
    On the back of the earth-form SS box, it says his intelligence is 4.
    What?


    And then on the back of the box of earth-form SS, there's this little caption that says "Missile Launchers attach to arms!"

    I take it they mean the plastic missiles themselves ... or do they mean the big black launcher mechanisms with the wheels that make all the kibble?

    Didn't the original SS toy have the intelligence stats at 4 as well? Seem to remember reading that somewhere...

    G1 Starscream had his stats switched with Skywarp, I believe.

    So incorrect stats are kind of an homage, I guess.

    Pretty much all incarnations of the SCREAMER have been former scientists.

    Not really, Arm, Eng and Cyb weren't, and last I checked, movie SS was not.

    ah... someone forgot about the problems that usually arise when we assume. You make an @SS out of U and ME.

    Maybe it's like Marvel ratings with a '0' spec rating being "average" as opposed to meaning "thick as two short planks".

    You obviously weren't into G1 then. Before the wars, StarScream was a scientist/explorer along with Skyfire, who was his best friend. In an episode, Skyfire asks how he can turn from science to war ... or something like that.

    StarScream did not start off as a warrior.,

    Uh, I think the point was that this movie is not G1. He might not have ever been a scientist in this story. We don't know yet.

    I was very, VERY very into G1! He and Skyfire were friends like you said, Skyfire got lost in ice on earth and Megatron deceived him into thinking the Autobots were evil.

    I just watched that episode last week, along with all of G1 season 1 & 2, twice. (with BW in between)

    I was talking about MOVIE STARSCREAM!!


    Get your facts straight before deciding what I'm into or not into first.

    Wow you need to get your priorities straight if something this small pisses you off. Cheers!

    Pisses me off? I'm not pissed off.

    Is it because I capitalized stuff? Cause it was either that or putting it in bold, (which I knew would make me sound pissy) to add emphisis. (sp?)

    Reading it now I see how it may have came-off sounding pretty negative. Though your response sounded kinda snappy to me.

    I apologize if I offended.

    Oh ... no. I am never offended. It just seemed like that post made you mad.

    I have the feelign it's just the result of soemthing really banal like the person responsible for the bios not really paying attention...

    As for G1 SS being a scientist, isn't that something the cartoon just made up in the middle of the first series to make their story work?
