    Am I the only one that questions how he was able to use these if he is without his Tcog? If Bumblebee was unable to bring forth his weapons, how the hell did he use his? And why didn't he use them earlier on the Insecticon?

    Starscreams weapons are already out. He doesn't have to transform them out like Bumblebee.

    His missiles are always on the outside of his forearms, so one can assume that to use them requires no transformation whatsoever. Unlike Bee's cannons or Starscream's arm blasters appear to do.

    As for why he didn't use them earlier, he must have a short supply of them. He probably didn't want to waste them on something that might survive both blasts.

    Firing a missile doesn't require transforming.

    Remember the kids could use Starscreams arm to fire. They are just sitting there on his arms.

    Yeah his blasters are unusable but the missiles aren't.

    And now I want him to be without them until we see him find some way to restock.

    Everyone already said it, the missiles are on his arms= no transformation needed, but how they end up reloaded in the very next scene despite no change in time.. let us not look into that

    I'm surprised it wasn't obvious.

    This does bring up something that is cause for concern. He has two missiles and he's shown firing both of them. Since he probably didn't use them until now because he wanted to conserve them we can assume those are either the only two he has or he has very few. If they are the only ones he had then he pretty much left himself defenseless except for his claws.

    To be fair his claws are some of the most lethal weapons on the show.

    Even so he can't fly out of danger or use his blasters and he's an enemy to four rival factions. Not a good situation to be in.

    Read the title as "Topless Starscream Using Missiles."

    Either he didn't think that far ahead, or found getting a sneak attack in on Airachnid too tempting to pass up. A "WORTH IT!" moment, if you will.

    There's plenty of Vehicon for him to get spare parts.

    Even teenagers were able to fire with his arm. And they didn't need a t- cog. Do you remember the episode, where StarScream lost his arm, trying to revive SkyQuake?
    But I cannot understand, how StarScream restores his weaponry.

    The real question is, will he be missing his missiles when he next appears?
