    How do you guys feel about him? Is he good, decent, or horrible in the movies?
    Is he better in the comics or in the movies?

    Keeping his movie design, how would you guys make him act? Would you keep his bad-ass 1st movie personality and do more with it in the sequels, or would you leave him the way he was?

    Reign of Starscream SS is the best version of Movie Scream.


    The actual Movie version is a joke with an awesome voice.

    He was okay. Unfortunately, sycophancy is too subtle for Starscream if it never comes to treachery and the movies always had someone else for that role. (TFTM introduced the Decepticons for the first time, RotF had the Fallen, and DotM had Sentinel). I would have kept the fear other Autobots had for him in the first one, and make him very twofaced. He says whatever he has to to get you to turn your back so he has a clear shot.

    That said, "Not to call you a coward, but some times cowards do survive" is one of my favorite Starscream lines of all versions.

    Starscream is great in the little doses we got. It wasn't so much he wasn't treacherous/ backstabby but because he barely got attention in the movies.

    That being said he never had bad dialogue. "I just love it when your tiny insect feet try, and RUN" has to be my favorite screamer line. He had a great voice and design. He just needed to be more fleshed out as a back stabber.

    I love his design.
    I love his voice.
    I love his dialogue.
    His sound effects were cool.
    He fights well and died from his own arrogance. He was a terror in the skies.

    People will say he's utter crap for getting killed by Sam the yoyo and then being played for laughs, but I enjoyed every second he was on screen the entire trilogy. One of, if not outright, my favorite version of the character.

    I would have stuck with his movie 1 self through the trilogy. In ROTF and DOTM he was a straight-up pansy.

    People who hate movie SS, should, should.............

    Anyways IMO he has the best design, best character (maybe,) best voice, and just an awesome character all around in the movies.

    I'd keep his badass TF'07 voice and personality, but I'd also add some of his ROTF and DOTM qualities.

    He was good in the first film, but was absolutely dreadful in the next two. Reign of Starscream is the definitive take on the character.

    I didn't like his design at first, but HTFD Leader Starscream changed that.

    Same for me, except I always loved his design.

    I wish SS had a kill with his hands, similar to The Reign of Starscream.

    Terrible.

    He lacks the one trait i like about Starscream. The fact he's a treacherous egotist...say what you want back in 2007 that Starscream was one of the F-22 raptors attacking Megatron but he never went out like Screw You Megatron, Sentinel Prime will rise above you....you know just be a jerkass to Megatron.

    Plus his death was at the hands of a brat named Sam.

    I thought Starscream was alright, would be better if he had more screen time, so he could have a chance to show some more of his character, such as backstabby and dark!!!

    Starscream was great. Finally somebody realised that he's not tough, or smart. That's what fangirls want him to be. The real Starscream is a coward and a bully. He's a terror in the air but on the ground he's not exactly nimble. (though he still beat the ever loving crap out of Ironhide and Ratchet)

    His death was perfect. It showed everything Starscream is. He's cruel, he's over dramatic, he's stupid, he's predictable, but most of all he's funny.

    Also it was nice to see a loyal Starscream who's not an angst sandwich. Add a hilariously sadistic personality, a flaboyant way of speaking and a few genuine moments of shit-wrecking and he's one of my favourite supporting characters.

    He's okay but I prefer WFC/FOC and Prime's Starscreams. I was kinda hoping he'd have a dogfight with someone or atleast try to backstab Megatron in DOTM. As much as I hate humans destroying Transformers, I didn't mind his death. He was playing with his food and got underestimated. Also I can't help but laugh every time I hear "I'm going to kick you". Needless to say though, I have a deluxe (as you can see in my sig) and still want the leader.
