    picked up superion at target last week and was pretty pleased with the repaints, but when i received my energon starscream (new on ebay) in the mail i realized that energon starscream and rotf air raid look almost exactly the same even though they are different molds! i just wonder if hasbro did this on purpose, either way pretty cool.

    Air Raid's color scheme is intentionally a homage to Energon Starscream, although no idea why.

    i normally only collect g1, classics and universe but i needed demolisher (long haul) to fill the dump trunk void in my classics devastator set and noticed that the energo decepticons are actually great moulds. picked up starscream and scorponok, still available new on ebay and still reasonably priced.

    Okay, what does ROTF Air Raid look like? Anyone got a pic? I give up looking.

    Air Raid is much smaller than Energon Starscream, but yes, the color scheme is definitely the same.
