    That bio sounds less apt than Hasbro's recent efforts. It seems to emphasize Starscream's strength over his guile, for which he is better known.

    While it doesn't talk about his intellect, overall its a very good bio. It fits his personality quite well, imo.

    Is that the first time a Hasbro bio has specifically referred to his voice?

    HTS is taking its own sweet time getting the new figures up for preorder... Cyclonus & Cheetor were a week or so ago. Now Starscream. Hound is still missing... They also added Brawn today, too.

    A good bio because it gives him his due, while still making reference to his established flaws... though I think I prefer the first Classics bio because it gives more specifics about his abilities.

    HOWEVER, I do sort of resent the fact that cowardice has emerged as one of Starscream's signature traits, rather than treachery or arrogance. That really derives solely from the exaggerated and simpering portrayal from the old cartoons.

    I always think Starscream deserved a little more dignity.

    Decent bio, but the whole cowardice thing is :confused:  I mean he was scared of Megs, but not Unicron, Galvatron, Prime. And even then he talked $#!t to Megatron all the time. Or maybe they're just saying not many are stronger than him...

    More reference to his agility and intelligence (especially his roots as a scientist), as well as mention of his treachery and arrogance would have been more appropriate for a 25th anniversary Starscream. I think those traits proceed his cowardice... No mention that he's the second in command or air commander? I think I prefer the original classics bio: Ruthless, cold-blooded, and capable, STARSCREAM makes no secret of the fact that he wants to replace Megatron as leader of the DECEPTICONS. The fastest flyer among the DECEPTICONS ranks and one of the most dangerous warriors ever to grace the skies of Cybertron, he is still something of a coward. He cares too much for his own skin to ever take the risks the overthrow of MEGATRON would require.

    I think the bio starts with promise, but ultimately fails to deliver. I expected more, cuz almost all the other bio's have been effin epic. In fact, I think (IMHO obviously) it's one of the worst G1 Starscream bio's. It's saving grace is the mention of his shrill laughter. That's a great touch.
