    So after getting the latest Universe Starscream repaint I just can't decide which one I like better - the latest more toy accurate paint job or the first classics Starscream with the not as accurate paint. The newer one's paints seem alot more vibrant with the lighter red and the darker blue but something just doesn't look right.

    What do you guys all think?

    I think he was talking about the two universe starscreams excluding henkei

    I didn't like the red wings on the first one.

    excluding henkei starscream, i think ur better off going for the new universe starscream, imo.. coz its much more G1 accurate.. and just looks better, i think.. i still feel the henkei one is better, but the new universe one is really close this time around.. i might actually break my "hasbro OR henkei" rule this time, and get universe screamer on top of my henkei :D

    It is a matter of taste IMO.


    Henkei is toy accurate and universe is show accurate.

    He means that the original G1 toy's colors did not match the animation model's colors, creating two different paint schemes.

    I like the new toon-accurate one the best, but I also like the Classics version as it is a bit more modern and more accurate to a real plane's paint job. I would like the Henkei version more if it weren't for the chrome.

    I've seen all three models (Classics, Henkei, 25th). I will tell you from the initial test shots that I was really liking my Classics Starscream more than the G1 repaint, but then I ended up seeing Mushroom Primes Henkei Starscream in person and liked it so much (but couldn't afford the Henkei) that I went and got a G1. I have him sitting next to Masterpiece Starscream like Mini-Me (thanks Kenucme for that idea...) and I just cant find anything wrong with the colors on any of the renditions.

    Proof that no matter what type of Starscream it is, he's still bada--.

    *looks at G1 starscream*

    *doesnt see any of the white detailing that henkei starscream has on his arms and crotch*

    I like the original classics starscream the best. I'm only getting the universe figure to turn into thundercracker.
