    If both the G1 and Animated versions of Starscream were to square off with each other, who would win?

    G1 Starscream. He wasn't THAT whiny... AND he lives on as a ghost. You can never kill Starscream.

    I think I would have to go with Animated. G1 Starscream talked about getting rid of Megs, Ani Scream actually blew him up. To be fair though G1 tossed his damaged body into space. Love them both!!!!

    Well, here are some notable differences:

    G1 Starscream
    1. Makes several attempts to kill Megatron, but once he fails, he begs Megatron for mercy.
    2. Usually the first to run away in a fight.
    3. Was destroyed by Galvatron, but became a ghost before regaining a body through Unicron.

    Animated Starscream
    1. Makes several attempts to kill Megatron, but once he gets killed, he gets back up and tries again.
    2. Single-handedly beat the crap out of Optimus Prime and his team.
    3. Was killed by Megatron with an Allspark-infused uppercut, but was resurrected and became "immortal" by a shard of the Allspark embedded in his forehead. Went permanently offline when the Allspark shard was pulled out.

    Now, toy-wise, G1 Masterpiece Starscream blows all other Starscreams out of the water. Animated Voyager Starscream, however, is a close 2nd place among all Starscream toys.

    Animated.

    First of all, he's got size and power on his side. G1 Starscream would only be the size of Animated Optimus in robot mode, and while G1 Starscream has null rays he never uses, Animated Starscream uses his sonic cannons all the time to a very devastating end result. In addition, it seems like Animated Starscream takes a lot of abuse pre-allspark shard that would have seriously if not critically damaged G1 Starscream.

    Both are duplicitious and cunning at times, but Animated Starscream again can be the more subtle one about it, actually laying out traps and plans to gain power instead of just talking about wanting it.

    For the sake of arguement, I won't bring in the differences of their jet alt modes or talk about their likely relative max speeds or manuevering capabilities.

    Bottom line G1 would be an underpowered inadequate midget against Animated.

    Love both of them, but Animated would win. Animated cons seemed more powerful than the G1 ones.

    Let's not forget single-handedly shoot Ultra Magnus in the face, have Sentinel quiver in his servos, keep on coming back fro the dead, have clones of himself, able to be a third faction for a majority of the series, he was useful and manipulative as only a head. He kind of reminds me of Baxter Stockman from the recent TMNT series. Only difference is Stockamn had a happy ending for a sympathetic villain.


    The only thing G1 Starscream did was shove Megs off Astrotrain to justhave Megs upgraded and kill him


    However, neither of these two are as awesome as Cybertron Screamer.

    How did you come to the conclusion that one is bigger than the other?

    I think animated starscream would win because he would have his clones fly overhead and confuse G1 starscream with their personalities.All that lying , sucking up , evil laughing and screams of terror = instant surrender.:lol

    Animated Starscream is far more resiliant. Not only can he physically endure almost everything that is thrown at him, he never lets it get him down and always keeps trying. G1 Starscream would wuss out the second things started looking shaky.

    I think the physical immortality alone gives Animated Starscream more than enough of an edge over the whiny bitch from G1.

    I think it's because in G1, even though their various alternate modes were drastically different in size, Prime, Megs, Soundwave, Screamer, etc. were all about the same height as each other, and Animated OP is about the same height as G1 Prime.

    Animated Starscream FTW.

    Wouldn't the absolute immortalty of G1 Starscream be better? Take the Allspark shard from Animated's head and apparently he dies (likely for good), G1 Starscream can come back time and again in whatever body he fancies. Want to control the Decepticons? Take over Megatron's body with your immortal spark.
    Even if reinserting an Allspark shard back into Animated Starscream's head somehow brought him back to life, while it's not in there he's effectively dead and entirely vulnerable, unlike an immortal spark.

    Animated Screamer has an edge... unless G1 Starscream's the Ore-13 powered one from IDW.

    I like G1 Screamer better, but had to vote for Animated since I think that incarnation of him is generally stronger, more cunning, and has way more of a crazy edge to him.

    Animated, simply because of his long list of achievements. He was a threat even after he died, (without becoming a ghost) which seriously counts for something.
