    regarless of wether or not i like the damn thing, it irritates me to see people saying how 'untransformerlike' he is. personally he looks like a spit of optimus primal, but i suppose a more realistic description would be energon starscream for the fat torso and over-huge guns, cheetor for the legs and cybertron scrapmetal for the wierd bug-eyed head.

    rough mockup:

    looks like a transformer to me, and like movie starscream. as far as i can see the g1 element is just in terms of the loose direction of the storyline, the actual robot design takes just as many cues from RiD, beast machines, energon, cybertron etc etc in equal amounts - one overall amalgam of all teh transfomers styles.

    *edit* also, here's a roughly coloured veriosn from page 2, showing what i think are EYES not cheekbones:

    Snazzy. Admittedly far from my favorite Starscream of all time, but ... snazzy.

    I'd totally love the movie design if it wasn't for the goofy head and goofy legs. The big ass guns don't really bother me much; in fact, I think they are appropriate.

    I love the head and arms, it's the legs that just need to be a bit longer and more "Bulky".

    This version of starscream seems more brutish, thuggish if you will, not sleek and arrogant like he has been typically been portrayed. My opinion... I do not like it.

    My gripe is the chest seems too wide to me. I like how the legs look, but with that massive upper body they do look a tad spindly. Be interested to see how the movie version looks.

    I definitely could see how it could transform, but the big upper body still conveys brutishness to me, rather than sleek firepower. If it's anything like the early sketches we've seen of the movie design, I was thinking maybe the gun barrels flip to reveal "hands."

    other than the legs I adore this design for Starscream. I wasn't fond of the beastly legs when it was used on BM Cheetor, and he actually *was* an animal. But I can get over it if the character is true to the original, which we've been told (repeatedly) that it is.

    Meh, I think Starscream is kind of ugly.

    Bad ass, but ugly.

    I think apart from the head, this guy looks cool.

    I like the legs as well, they remind me a lot of ED-209.

    I think it a good transformer design, I just don't think it fits in with Starscreams character. From what I have heard, movie SS is going to have a similar type of character to all the other incarnations, and that design just looks too "Brutish evil henchman" to me. Good design, and it should make a great toy, but it doesn't say starscream to me.
    And I really dont like the face....

    I think the legs are that way to lower his height, so he doesn't tower over the Autobots

    I'm fine with it except the head is to gaudy for me, particularly the "cheekbones" on it. If it was a bit...erm...I guess the word is "sleeker," then I would be fine with it.

    I agree, but it still doesn't stop him from being ugly, IMO of course.

    this is all reminding me of GI Joe the movie, were cobra commander gets turned into an actual snake.

    when i saw that... i just stared blankly at the screeen, unable to fathom what just happened.

    same for this starscream.
    the only thing that could *maybe* save it, is if chris latta came back to life just to voice it.
    thats if he isnt doing backflips in his grave right now.

    also,
    when did F-22's recieve huge gatling missles???
    -or-
    where in the hell do you hide huge gatling missles on an F-22???
