    Lately I've seen a lot of debate around Starscream (the Voyager Animated toy), so out of curiosity; do you love or hate his Voyager Animated mold?, i particularly love his mold, i think he's one of the best on the whole animated line, even if the colors aren't G1 accurate they are somewhat show accurate and i think it fits his mischevious personality.

    Thanks

    I love it, just wish it had:

    -more accurate nose in jet mode
    -slimmer/more accurate robot proportions(slimmer biceps and more)
    -wrist swivels.

    I don't hate it. I don't love it either, though. I do hate how his head pops off nearly every time I try to transform it into vehicle mode, though. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get it transformed without it popping off a couple times. I don't really know what I'm doing wrong.

    My only other gripe with it is the totally inaccurate missile launchers. I don't get why they made them like that.

    Hate it.

    The transformation, they way he looks in robot mode, the missile launchers floppiness, the jet mode and I find his articulation+stability rather lack-luster.

    It has some flaws with the backpiece/wings and the colors, but I still own 2 of this mold, so...

    do wish there was an even more accurate Starscream ;)

    I don't like it. I hate the light-piped mouth. I hate the proportions. I hate the colors. I hate the oddly shaped arms. I hate the transformation.

    Just meh. The face isn't very good. Those rear fins in the back are a pain. The arms aren't articulated enough. Not huge problems, but they're troublesome.

    Sorry james28210, i should've added a third option, my bad, i don't know how to add it anymore, seeing that this is my first poll, anyhow, feel free to add all the comments and how you feel about the mold, the poll was only a way to quantify (it's that a word) the results, nothing more, the important stuff is the comments that the members post.
    Thanks for the suggestion though, i'll keep it in mind for future posts

    What? Even the hands are articulated. What more do you need?

    Double what? Starscream is super articulated and poseable. And stable because of how the feet are designed (ball joint ankles and adjustable v-toes). About the only thing missing is a waist joint, something I never thought super necessary on any TF.

    Same here. Since there technically was a G1 colored clone in the show, I hope to see it get a toy. Throw in a proper Thundercracker repaint and we're aces.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing a G1 repaint of Prowl. Scratch that. After seeing Derrik's colored drawings of it, I'm actually foaming at the mouth to see it in toy form.

    Considering they gave us - yes, us, old fans & collectors - a G1 repaint of Shockwave, I hope it's a no brainer for Prowl & Screamer as well.
