Fall of Cybertron Kickback Test Shot And Starscream Transformation

Transformations-Generations-Kickback-02
We haven't really seen much of the upcoming Generations Kickback figure since past cons, until now! Tekmen has posted his images of his Kickback testshot. His thoughts on this figure:

"The robot mode is gorgerous and posable
Yet the insect mode is a pile of junk. Can't properly stand as a bug, doesn't even really look like a bug;

worst of all, joints are ultra-limited in bug mode:
The kicking-back-legs can't kick AT ALL, they are positioned only the way you see in the photo, can't stretch any further;
The wings are somehow engineered to bend ONLY the way that could pop parts off... no idea what that's for......
"

Tekmen also posted images of his FOC Starscream testshot, showing the transformation process! Check out the new FOCing pics after the jump!

Feels like it's been a while since we saw a test-shot like this. While I have no interest in getting Screamer, I do look forward to seeing who all they choose to repaint this figure as. Would be nice to see someone other than they typical six...like Sunstorm. While I don't think it would ever happen, a repaint as Dark Scream would be cool. Especially if they would give him a new head.
Scantron
I'd buy this if they released it in those colours.
miscreant
I'm still just enough beyond indfferent to buy it.

Would be nice to see Hasbro release all three deco potential decos of this mold, with reasonable availabiltiy, for a change.
Yaujta
The more I see of this figure, the more I really like it! The transformation scheme and overall appearance seem to hearken back to the unreleased Transtech Starscream.

Great, now I just made myself want it even more.
optimegatron
I'll only get this because I am an FOC completionist. I don't like Starscream at all.
MechaV
Yet another tiny FoC Deluxe.

Oh well, he still looks pretty cool and hopefully less hollow than the others have been.
Fort Max
Wow, it's like I'm living through energon again. Love multicolured test shots.
dkr7
looks a bit short and squat and too wide at the waist but it's WFC Scream so i'll bite. This will be my last deluxe figure, their just getting too plain and small to be worthwhile anymore imo. I'll stick to just MP's.
Feralstorm
Looks like a reasonably nice toy of a Starscream design I'm not fond of. It's DOTM all over again!
[Wing_Saber-X]
nice. Kinda reminds me of TF: Energon/ Galaxy Force Starscream in design. Bought!
Deonasis
Nice one xterry!

Damn i hope Takara and their metallic colour schemes nail all the FoC figures like they have done for Prime and Jazz! That also means Shockwave needs the FoC metallic treatment too.

Is it Deluxe? I was under the impression that was Voyager. If it is Deluxe then great! Considering that Megatron is Deluxe, that will be in scale! I do not want a Voyager Screamer that is taller than Megatron. T.T
Sol Fury
Coolness! Where'd you get these from my man?
Bass X0
I expect this mold will be repainted just as much as Classics Starscream given time.

Argh, having to wait and see what Takara does is a little annoying. At least with Prime you knew that the AM versions would be "different" but now that Takara is back to doing "premium" versions, I have to wait it out and pass on the Hasbro ones at first.
Thundershot
Wow. It HAS been a while since we got test shots like this. I kinda miss the good ol' days...
Megatron31
^ no kidding

im hoping he is a little taller than some of the other releases from this line

but it seems to be much more solid than some of the others (granted that could all be thrown out if the back of the legs are completely hollowed out like primes)

and i think i have said this in every thread we have seen pics of this mold in THAT HEAD SCULPT IS A THING OF BEAuTY
Cracka J
I like it a lot. Even if it is the FOC deluxe scale, I'll probably be getting a set of these in the seeker colors, if they offer them.
Jacer
I cannot wait for the figure to come out!
Astronut
is this another really short deluxe? If there's one thing my collection don't need, it's one more tiny deluxe seeker.
Smashs
Man I can't wait for this figure. I really hope we get at least TC/SW too.
slugslinger2004
I hope they release Skywarp and Sunstorm repaints. As of now though, I can hold out on Starscream until it goes on sale.

Hah, I would prolly grab a Sunstorm or Acid Storm repaint. Makes a LOT more sense in my classics collection that way.
Starfire22
I like it.
agp
I really can't wait, I need a starscream for my deluxe shelf
xMostWanted559x
Is this the color of it? I thought he was more g1 colored

It's a prototype/test-shot, which are rarely done in the actual colors of the final toy. They're basically test runs of the molds to check for molding errors or plastic tolerance issues.
Transbot90210
I'm not the biggest fan of the FoC designs but I like em enough and this SS looks like the game model so....bought.
Satomiblood
I like this.
WhiteMocha
I know people will first and foremost want the standard Seeker repaints... but I reeeally think that at some point this mold should be repainted as Classics Triggerhappy.

I mean, just look:

I know. It's pretty spot on. It shouldn't be too hard to DIY, though. Just a repaint, head swap, and finding the appropriate Targetmaster.
Sumner Sturgeon
Man, the lukewarm response is really killing my enthusiasm.

But taken on its own, it looks like a pretty cool mould. I've wanted a toy of the WFC Starscream design since the first game, and on top of that, he's supposed to come with the Neutron Assault Rifle from FOC, so I'm definitely still getting him, size or complexity be damned. I never bought Transformers just because I wanted HUGE toy or something silly like that.
Starscream NZ
This doesn't look THAT small to me, but need to see it next to WfC Megs/SW and FoC Shockwave for a decent comparison.


I quite like these colours, it's like a Rhinox inspired deco.
cappeca
I hope he doesn't tower over Shockwave.
Duwian
This guy looks so amazing. I can't wait to get one! BBTS says it's estimated to arrive in November! SO PUMPED.
Omega Charge
Size ignored, the mold looks great!
Cyber-Scream
The robot mode looks exceptionally good in that fourth pic.
xMostWanted559x
Kinda jetfire-ish

With a slight remold of the front end of the jet and a new head, he'd make a great FOC Jetfire.
Noideaforaname
Pretty spiffy. I assume that burgundy counts for two colors, otherwise Starscream would need a lot of paint to look right.

Is it strange I kinda want that "evil Rhinox" color scheme?

With how the FoC line's shaping up, that's almost guaranteed.
ShadowXD
Seems like he has a simple transformation.
Which is a plus for me!
ssjkazer
DEAR HASBRO please send the fandom more pictures like this we love them ALOT it gets us hyped up and makes us want to buy them more

but on topic man this mould looks awsome so geting this toy and his wave mates lol
VictoryLeo19
That alt mode kind of lends to G1 Triggerhappy's design. I wouldn't mind getting a repaint/new head of that mold. Good stuff!
Sideways77
I like the look of the figure. Definatly accurate to the game. I may buy SS if they don't make Thundercracker.

I kinda like the Rhinox colors as well...
Surge
Can't wait till this is released. Out of all Starscreams, his WFC/FOC design is my favorite.
FatalT 71
I want this toy now.

With paint, of course.
theestampede
man its good to see a test shot again.

I'd love to get this guy in those colors, really cool
power3921
He looks great! Cant wait for 2013.
Rexidus
I want it now!
