YouTube - Transformers 3 RIP G1 Starscream‏ The Real Starscream was never in any of the 3 Bayformers Movies. The giant jet transforming robot you saw was a last minute rookie replacement for the Real Starscream. The Real Starscream read the script, saw his role and turned it down back in 2007. When he got to the part where he would be killed by humans he put the script down, scoffed and asked the man called Michael, "You surely can not be serious?! I am Starscream: Ace of the air! I will not be seen meeting my end at the hands of a few puny flesh creatures. This is ridiculous. I'd rather be a ghost taking over other transformers bodies." Then he transformed and flew away.
