    I considered getting the Voyager that came out around the release of the second film, but after I heard of the Leader version, I held off on it. My girlfriend got Nebular Screamer, and he's pretty cool, but not to put her or the figure down, the waiting paid off because said girlfriend got me HFTD Leader Starscream for Christmas, and it is by far one of the best Movie toys [so far] in my opinion. And to boot, his movie design is one of my absolute favorites of the movie characters. No complaints on the toy whatsoever. That said...

    I saw the DARK OF THE MOON figures as they were front paged here on TFW, and I'm not as hyped for the entire line as I was the previous Movie toys. Don't get me wrong, I'll give in and buy a couple (Ironhide is alread sold on me), but it'll take some doing to get me to the same level of interest I had for the previous two Movie toys.

    Anywho, I dunno why, but I kinda want to see a Deluxe somewhere down the road, be it a DOTM figure, a figure from a line Hasbro puts out to fill us in 'til the next movie/show, or a commemorative set. It may not top the quality of the larger toy, but the effort put into the HFTD Deluxe Ironhide tells me that effort can be put forth that challenges a larger figure of the character (to each their own with that Ironhide, though).

    Thoughts?

    I think a Deluxe class figure would be great for movie Starscream.

    It'd also be a much cheaper way for Hasbro to do a true line of Movie Seekers.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a deluxe. After the leader, everything else pales in comparison though.

    A Deluxe would certainly be nice and a little easier to fit into my Starscream shelf than the current Leader figure.

    While a deluxe Starscream would be nice, I already have a shelf full of voyager Starscreams and all the other Seekers..and of course the leader version.

    I really don't need another movie Starscream.

    This might be the first time I'd want a DX Seeker as well. Of course, this is because we've already gotten every other sizes. I'd like a movie Starscream as well, because it'd look cute next to the rest.

    And it'll be pretty nifty. I'm kinda a Starscream fan. Especially movie, for some reason. I'd get a Deluxe, basically because I have all the other Movie Starscream Molds.

    So I'm in. :rock

    I'd probably pick it up just to add to my Starscream collection, even though I'm not crazy about the movie aesthetic for him.

    I'd very much like one. As far as I'm concerned they can't do the character better than the HftD Leader, so I'm all for getting any incarnation that's as different from previous releases as possible. Scout, Stealth Force, PCC, whatever.

    I have thoughts, but none of them are good. I don't think he'd fit in with any other movie toys. He's one of the biggest Decepticons around, and that's with them being cheaty on his size.

    Few years down the road as part of some commemorative line, maybe. Right now I have no place for one.

    The first (of 2) Movie toys ever released was Deluxe Protoform Starscream.

    I have no particular desire for one. FAB and Activators are already pretty close to deluxe size as it is. That said, I am Starscream's whore and would buy it if it were to happen.

    I have no desire for the deluxe either. I have the first movie Voyager Starscream, Deep Space Starscream, Nebular Starscream and the HFTD Leader Starscream. That is enough for me.
