    ..........see a G1 accurate Starscream ever again?

    I was just looking at the new Japanese Classics. They gave Starscream Thundercracker's stripes AGAIN! Robot Masters SS had TC's stripes, Hasbro did it on the masterpiece & now Takara did it on the Classic. Starscream only has red, NOT red & white. Is there some reason why they never get it right? (Then there's Sunstorm which is supposed to be a clone of Starscream yet also has Thundercracker's stripes).

    I was thinking about ordering the Japanese Classic Starscream & I was like "wait a minute, they got the stripes wrong AGAIN!". What's their problem? Did they at least get the stripes right on Encore Starscream?

    :wtf: ​

    I can give you the link:

    I just think hasbro and takara are either unaware of this difference. Or more likely choose thundercracker stripes to make the colors look more interesting than just red.

    maybe robot hero g1 starscream is accurate, as he even has painted versions of the original stickers for his knees.

    ......See an end to this ridiculous practice of not actually using the thread title to say anything about the thread?

    Besides, RM, Classics, and WM MP have been so ridiculously close that I'm happy with 'em.

    I don't really care for the just red look, I like it that they all have the same stripes.

    Is this really something to get all worked up over? Tiny white stripes? I can see being upset about the stupid upside down faction symbols, but this is such a minor nitpick.
