    How come in Starscreams Ghost, when Octane sees his statue, only Starscreams feet are shown? And when you see Starscreams ghost, his feet are missing?

    Animation error, the cell was forgotten for the upper body. Or the scene was supposed to show not that much, so you would not need to show the rest of Starscreams statue.

    I thought maybe when Galvatron shot Starscream, only his feet remained intact. So, that's all they had left to put at his tomb.

    I'd like to think it was more like how certain Roman emperors liked to dishonor their ancestors, by pulling down their statues on their mausoleums. You can bet Starscream was vain enough to have actually prepared a grand, magnificent statue of himself for when the inevitable came - and when it did, Galvatron had it torn down, but left the feet as a mockery.


    In all fairness though, that's a fanfic level answer, and Murasame is probably right about it being an animation error.

    Perhaps its not even a statue.

    From the movie when Screamer crumbles to dust, all that survives are his lower legs and feet.

    Then again, it could be a statue displaying what little remained of Starscream after trying to usurp power...as a future warning to others.

    As to his 'spirit'...I would guess that he was animated without his lower legs to re-inforce the idea that he is dead and has come back.

    I thought they just never finished building it because he wasn't very well liked. LOL

    When people loose their limbs, its been said that they can still feel them for a while. I think it's called ghost-sensations or something like that. So still wonder why his ghost does not have any feet at all? Maybe because his feet are still intact, the ghost doesn't have any?

    I always thought it was supposed to be like that, because his feet were all that was left of him. Didn't Octane knock one of the feet over? So that should mean it was supposed to be like that

    My thoughts:

    1. No one liked him.
    2. Ghosts don't need to walk.
