    Don't get me wrong. As much as I didn't care about Starscream's characterization in the movies, Studio Series Starscream is truly a great figure and toy on its own.

    The arms are so incredibly expressive. My only main complaint about this toy is that the legs are a bit tough to work with and so don’t become as expressive. If there were some movement in the feet aside from the toe moving up and down and some more bend in the knees that would help a lot.

    Something that adds a lot to the expressiveness of the legs is using the transformation joint that rotates them to the back for jet mode as an ad hoc thigh swivel.

    This figure definitely grew on me. I like it the most of the three SS figures I own, mainly because it still fits in with older movie Voyagers. That is a HUGE plus for me.
    Also, it looks pretty good with a five minute brown and dark gray alcohol wash:

    I applaud you for not using a black wash.

    Heheh
    I honestly hate black washes on anything besides dark gray surfaces. The washes I use are designed for aircraft and military vehicles, and are dark colors like brown, gray and green. I never use black, as it almost always looks more like soot or grease on light surfaces.

    Got this guy and think he's fantastic. Hey Hasbro, hurry up with the Skywarp and Thundercracker repaints!

    I hate pure black washes and panel lines because it makes it everything look cartoony and cel shaded. If someone wants that, it's fine, but unless someone's going the whole nine yards and doing real cel shading, it never looks right to me.

    This. I dunno if I need another Starscream, but I badly need updated versions of Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    Likely won't get a Thundercrackers repaint as he's already out. I'd take Mindwipe repainted as Skywarp to complete the three though.

    This guy is a big hefty figure compared to the deluxe sand Optimus Prime. Starscream looks borderline Ultra class next to them. His details are great and his transformation is satisfying. If I could fix one thing it would be his feet. I wish they had more articulation.

    This toy is great. I like the Bayformer Starscream look and this one is awesome.

    I have one problem with mine. The pelvis flap is pretty loose and always comes down in jet-mode.
    Seems like the flap is supposed to sit a little bit closer to the body, so that the plastic on those 2 connections touches the body,
    but on mine there is a small gap. And now that it is pinned in, there seems to be nothing I can do.
    Does anyone have the same problem and does someone know how to fix that?

    Put a little bit of krazy glue on the side of the crotch piece, let it dry while folded down, then when you fold it back up the dried glue should make it a tighter fit and keep it in place.

    No. Use floor polish.

    Dried krazyglue can be too tough sometimes and shred the joints. Once it's frictioned away the joints become twice as loose.

    I was saying to do it on the side, not on the actual joint. But I’m sure future on the joint would work fine too.
