    I have it, but I am not a fan of the mold. It was an impulse purchase during the Summer of 07 dry spell for me. If you are a seeker completionist, then it is a buy. I would look at some galleries of the mold, or the figure and decide if you like it. I really started disliking that mold after a while, so for me I wouldn't have bought it if I could go back two years.

    Personally, I think he's more than a decent figure. I liked the character so I was happy their was a movie representation of him. With a new headmold no less. So, if you like the Starscream's 2007 mold and the character represented I think you might want to go for him.

    While it's ulimately up to you, I think he's an easy pass, unless you like the mold, or are looking for all the seekers. I picked him up first (since I have a soft spot for the character), but never got around to picking up the actual Starscream figure... I've never been happy with the figure's missile launching gimmick, and he's actually spent most of his in a storage bin w/ the rest of my figures not on display...

    Personally, I'd hope for repaints of the ROTF mold.

    I really like the TFTM07 Starscream mold, and prefer it to the RotF Starscream mold, so I'm a fan of the figure in general. However, I think the Thundercracker deco is one of the weakest used for that mold. If you're not committed to having Thundercracker specifically, the Wal-Mart exclusive Skywarp recolour is a lot better version of the mold.

    Honestly, if you have to ask, it's probably not worth it. Either you've like what you've seen from pictures and already want to get it or you don't. The mold doesn't have any "WOW" factors/features that will keep people on the fence from switching to "buy". If anything, maybe the other way around.

    He's great, my Favorite decepticon, except for maybe Sideways, or the classics Acid Storm and Starscream.

    He is very cool, lots of fun, and has great color. I have no complaints with him, except his jet mode. It has a few issues, but I like the jet mode, and he has a great robot mode. Overall, a must have.

    I picked him up cuz i actually liked the starscream mold, and my collection severly needed a thundercracker cuz the only one i had was cybertron and i hate it. So yeah, if you like the mold get it but if you've never had the mold before, don't.

    Eh its a really nice deco but the mold is just alright, so I'd say only if you're pick up the G1 Movie Starscream, and Rotf Skywarp.
