    I was thinking his face resembles a sort of Samurai helmet.

    Not sure what Evangelion's influences are, never watched it, but most other Japanese mecha shows and designs hail back from this era in Japan (like Gundam and the original Transformers), so it's possible that character used the same idea. :)

    His head reminds me of the UFO in Independance Day. Anyone remember the scene where they walk into Area 51 and you see the front of the UFO? Compare that scene to Starscream's head front view.

    Yep. Now everytime I look at Eva I'll see a dinosaur cosplaying as Starscream.

    To me it looked like a helmet of sorts but not an Evangelion. Thank's for pointing that out!!

    If I recall well, mid-way through production IML decided to make Starscream's head based on a Samurai Helmet [to differentiate from Megatron, it seems] thus the similarity you see.
