You know, looking at that photo...
Yes, Starscream is mistransformed, but from what I can tell, the only thing missing if for those panels on his back to be snapped into place. This would mean that the vacant space below his arms would still be there, it would just be blocked from going straight through his body. It would essentially be like he's got a cape glued on and his main body would be uber-skinny and weird.
I really hope I'm wrong, and the space is filled in when the figure is transformed correctly, because I really like it otherwise.

Add to that the large Mechtech weapons which will reduce the amount of plastic available for the figure itself.
I think it's going to be similar in height to something like ROTF Dirge, possibly smaller.

Starscream must be mistransformed or something... he looks pretty crappy. The Dread Bot is cool though. Looks a lot like an Insecticon.

I think they both look good - well, Screamer looks like there's good potential there when transformed correctly. Still hoping the Mechtech gimmick will allow the figures to look decent and not incomplete without those weapons, 'cause I expect most of mine will never wield them.

YEEEEEESSSSS SCREAMER!!! This'll be the first figure that I'll buy multiples of.
Alt mode: looks sleek and sexy; no sign of kibble
Robot mode: looks accurate; the headsculpt looks like a miniature Leader Class; the arms look flexible; MechTech weps look like swords -- and are removable
Too bad he was transformed horrendously. WE NEED MOAR PICS!!

Its starting to look like MechTech is going to NEARLY do to this line what the combining gimmick did to the Energon Autobots.
Those oversized and ridiculous weapons have obviously taken away from the accuracy and design of the toys. I wouldn't really care, cept for the fact that the Firetruck, Ferrari, Shockwave and Dreads are all toys I want good versions of... Looks like MechTech is going to give us some shittastic versions of these guys.
Voyager Prime - Meh. Leader Bee - Meh. Voyager Megs - Decent, but total lack of paint. DLX Screamer - Doesn't looks promising. Voyager Ironhide - Decent. Dread - Looks OK. The best toy I've seen so far is Skids, and he's one of my least favorite designs.
I wish they would just do MechTech and Mainline separate. I have a feeling I'll be waiting 2 or more years for some of these guys to get good toys not hampered by this crappy gimmick.
Saves me money towards TFClub Devastator though, so I'm good :
