    I'd have to say Classics Starscream. He's not only awesome, but he'll go nicely with your Classics Rodimus.

    If your Rodimus is Classics, I think Classics Starscream would be good, too. My favourite Starscream toy is Energon one, though.

    Classics Starscream. Only problem with him now is the fact that hes gone up in price alot on Ebay. Otherwise Armada, G1, MP, or Movie Screamers are all awsome.

    If you're looking for the best representation of G1 at lowest cost I say Classics. It is a great figure with tons of articulation and a good G1 style look.

    For Starscreams in general the Galaxy Force version from takara is great. It has decent articulation and looks great. I don't know however what prices he fetches currently.

    If I had to choose between the two, well it would be tough but Classics would win because of the G1ness of him.

    I like both Classics Starscream and the G1-style Energon repaint, although I'd have to say that the better articulation, weapons, transforming wings, and F-22 alt mode of the Energon version bump it a notch higher for me. However, if Hasbro is in fact releasing their own version of Masterpiece Starscream later this year and it's decently priced, just go for that one. Unlike most masterpiece figures, it's not overly huge, but it seems just as detailed and complicated.

    Classics Starscream for sure. There are some paint application disappointments (mainly in the face) and the huge launchers coupled with the wings hinder shoulder articulation, but it's by far my favorite Starscream toy.

    If you want more G1 SS, go classics.

    If you want the best Starscream toy there is, go Movie.

    Ebay:
    Galaxy Force (Takara) is the same as Leader Class Cybertron (Hasbro) Starscream. It's not G1, but it is the best SS out there. The Cybertron version will probably put you right at that $50 limit you have. Good luck finding a GF version...I haven't even seen one on eBay in quite a while.

    In order from best to worst
    Movie
    Classics
    Cybertron (Galaxy force)
    Energon
    Cybertron Supremem SS
    Armada

    Keep in mind, these are just good figures named Starscream. The best 'Starscream' is Classics.

    Classics Starscream would go nicely with your Hotrod. Although I have to say that I am partial to the Energon repaint of Starscream in G1 colours.

    I'd be cautious about getting an MP Starsceam. The Takara version is REALLY fragile and overly complex. QC wise it's also a bit of a nightmare in terms of stress marks and breakage. Not sure about the Hasbro version, but just giving you a heads up.

    I dunno... I had a Robot Masters 'screamer and I didn't like it at all. Can't really explain why, it was just a bad toy. Although it looked really good in the pix... Takara marketting sure knows their stuff. :lol

    The Hasbro version was supreme class. This in my opinion is much too big for the toy. The smaller voyager version from takara is much better.

    WTF are people smoking saying the Movie one is the best? He looks like a Jet version of Waspinator crossed with a Sumo Wrestler!!!

    On to the subject at hand, for the price you want to spend get a Classics and then Reprolabel it. Then you have Classics Starscream as he was intended to be. Or you could wait for the Hasbro G1 painted Masterpiece one if that is truly what we saw in that pic.

    Yes, but the thing is, you basically insulted anybody who likes the Movie Starscream design with the "WTF are people smoking" comment. You're entitled to your opinion, but, be nice to other people and their opinions.

    Okay......look.......................

    Masterpiece ROCKS but is to fragile.

    Classics is rare unless someone can tell me where i can buy it.

    Cybertron/Galaxy force it looks good, but again i dont know where to find it unless you tell me

    @_@ i dont know what to get @_@ i would get either cybertron/galaxy force or classics along with some more classics (pls tell me a website to get starscream and other classics, and cyybertron/galaxy force starscream!)
