    Oh, very interesting. Is this going to be a collection of stories from a particular run (Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW?) or is it going to be all new stories?

    Cover's kind of lame, though. Coloring looks muddy.

    This "Best of *insert character here* series has really taken off, surprised we haven't seen a Bumblebee one yet. He's probably next though.

    The fact we've got Bob Budiansky and Alex Milne credited on there suggests that we're looking at a collection that spans different runs, I doubt they'll be all new stories though or it wouldn't be a "best of" volume.

    My bet is that the Bob Budiansky credit comes from reprinting a part of the Underbase Saga or one of the other early Marvel G1 Starscream stories.

    Budiansky's contribution has to be the Underbase Saga, at least Parts 3 & 4. Aside from those issues, I can't really recall Budiansky using Starscream all that much; his go-to character for treachery was usually Shockwave.

    Underbase Saga HAS to be in there. Hopefully they don't just just do the last two parts. The intro of the first issue with Starscream is great. Also loved seeing PM Optimus, Blaster, and Spike all sitting on Fort Max being used as a boat. :lol 

    And let's not forget Jessie in a bikini. :D

    Just guesses -

    Underbase, Part 4 (US #50)
    That G2 issue where Starscream beats up on Megs and Prime as part of the ship they're on
    Something from Marvel UK - "Fallen Star" perhaps (they used "Aspects of Evil" for Best Of Megatron), though I'd love them to be daring and be the first company to reprint "The Enemy Within". Classic Starscream!
    And then probably modern stuff like "Infiltration Part 6", maybe the naval-gazing AHM segment, or something from Dreamwave - perhaps one of the episodes from the Sunstorm arc.
