TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Starscream Gallery

Next up, we share with you another gallery from the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3. Here comes a Decepticon whose record for treachery and deceit is legend. Yes, tonight we share with you this gallery of Fall of Cybertron Starscream!

Fall of Cybertron Starscream is, in this fan's eyes, level with Kickback for the best toy in the new assortment. His jet mode is suitably alien with a few nods to the various different interpretations of the design over the years. Robot mode is very good on the articulation with lots of movement in the arms and legs, nice big feet with sideways swivels to help with balance, but unfortunately as is par for the course now no waist swivel. The head, while capable of looking left and right, soon gets its vision interrupted by the shoulders, and the main torso is basically hollow from the way it forms from the jet mode. In my mind these are minor issues in what is one of the most fun little toys to come along in a while - Starscream looks great, holds poses well, and has a transformation which is a good balance between complex and intuitive. His weapon is cool as well, with a couple of display options which I have tried to capture in the gallery.

Check out the gallery by opening the link below. We've got some nice cool pictures for you to check out, showcasing robot and jet mode, comparisons with the War Within (Titanium), Galaxy Force and ShopTo.net exclusive Legends Class War for Cybertron Starscream. There's also some pictures included in the gallery showing how Starscream looks wielding the Renderform Banshee Blade and wearing the third party Classics Starscream coronation gear - yes, it fits on this toy as well, not perfectly but good enough.

This is one of the figures i am most anticipating out of the line.

It's almost like a Classics Cybertron Starscream.

This is the main reason I want to get this figure. I need to complete the Decepticon trio.
Stardust262
Beefy, powerful Starscream? I want now.

I'm Getting Him.
Onslaught24
still no pics with Bruticus? bummer

It is the best FOC toy as far as I am concerned, I just can't stop fiddling with him, something I haven't done with a modern figure since the original classics line.

Why are people so bothered about waist rotation? For me, I think so long as it has knees, elbows, upper thigh and upper arm swivels and at least the ability to rotate the head, it's a good figure.

the only things wrong with FOC Starscream are his visible head in vehicle mode which makes for a great gerhead and that his chest flaps could fold down further. That's it for detractors for me.

Bruticus is a bit awkward for me to do since he barely fits in my light box, never mind fitting anyone in there with him. But I'll add it to the to-do list for the holiday break.

that's understandable. he is quite large. nice pics btw. makes me want Screamer even more

EDIT: also, where'd you get a coronation that fits him?

You're weakening my resolve to only get the Skywarp version...
Prime Jetscream
I MUST KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GETTING THESE!
I can't tell if they're out in stores, or just online. >.<

Anyway, I LOVE this guy. I just wish his arms were a bit beefier. And that his wings folded straight backwards like in-game. Do they?! *hunts through gallery*

I'm getting them online, to the best of my knowledge they are not out in brick & mortar stores though they're now in at BBTS, TFSource et al, so hopefully they'll pop up any day now.

The wings don't go back any further, unfortunately. They're pretty much stuck in that position, they have a little give backwards to clear the arms but that's all really. It might be possible to mod it or something.

Thanks

The coronation gear is from a few years ago, it was a third party item I got from TFSource at one of the Botcons. This one - Henkei Classics - Starscream - Crown, Cape, Shoulder Armor & Cannon Custom Upgrade Kit

It isn't a perfect fit but it goes on well enough for the look.

I'll definitely be picking this bad boy up whenever I see him. Hopefully many of them will eventually make their way to discount stores because I might consider buying multiples of these. Why?

Because the FOC version would be an excellent contender.
Omegaprime3000
I think I...yep I just had a toygazim. I've been looking forward to this toy ever since I first played WFC.
deliciouspeter
Looks great. On my list.
Hippie Trooper
Looks great! Cant wait to find it!
Later
j.a.f.o.
Awesome review. That said, something about the overall proportions of this figure look goofy to me.
SydneyY
Great looking Starscream...this mould can be one of my favourite seekers (c'mon Thundercracker!)
grimlock1972
okay this reaffirms my plans to pick up this screamer
moreprimeland
Great pics as usual...must have this one for sure.
IaconStargazer
Oh yeah - I am definitely getting this guy. : D
FatalT 71
Thanks for the pics! Can't wait to get this Starscream! I've been waiting to see a WfC/FoC version ever since I got into collecting.
Transformed
Anyone know how much larger the new Soundwave is to Megatron and Starscream? Does he look really out of place or does he scale well next to them? I never really liked the first Soundwave, as I thought he was a little short and too lean
Brave Magnus
My WfC Megatron needs someone to slap. So I am getting this Starscream. XD
TacomaPrime
Loving starscream, kickback and air raid from this assortment.
magnus needs heels. Sideswipe is HORRIBLE!
G1Wheeljack
Yep, I'm grabbing this from my comic shop first thing on Wednesday.
trdkamuri51o
so do we have a final list / release schedule of every toy in this line?? im interested in just a few so far.. mostly grimlock and starscream... cant wait for them!!!
tfwAutobotProwl
Gerwalk mode? Khannn, Khannnnn!

That makes it even better. I was sold at fall of cybertron + starscream announcement a long time ago. Id have been sold even if it was a brick. Id buy at least 2 bricks , this one and Skywarp Natch'.

THankfullly it is very awesome looking in those poses, now im in a quandary to see about getting Skywarp I was gonna wait quite a while... hmmm....
[Wing_Saber-X]
mine.
Smasher
Looks really good.
The hollow torso isn't really evident in the pictures.
TylerMirage
It doesn't look half bad, actually.

And in my opinion, it's worth the price alone for his combining weapons.
konrathink
Short, stubby and super skinny biceps. Into the trash compactor.
BigRC83
I was not planning to pick this up but looking at it with Megatron and Soundwave changed my mind.
Grimm
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I just picked this guy up and when you set him up with Megatron, Shockwave and Soundwave it looks awesome.
charsdc2
Very hollow, very weak! I may pick up UM but for sure gotta have Kickback!
SHINOBI03

And they say they keep shrinking.
Nemesor
Yep, this mold is a winner. And the comparison shot just shows you how badly we needed this figure. The classics Seeker mold is awful. I sold all mine as soon as I heard about them doing this guy. Even if it doesn't get official redecos as all of the original trio and coneheads, I'd rather do some naff custom jobs to create my own.

I love the classics seeker mold,it's not awful at all,one of my favorite tf molds ever.this Starscream is cool too though,actually I buy all Starscreams besides bayverse and animated.

I can't agree at all really. It bears a resemblance to the cartoon characters, no doubt. But its posability is poor for its age, the headsculpt is rubbish (doesn't really look like any of the Seekers much), the wings hinder posability even further, the null rays are too big... I could go on in minute details.

This thing beats the classics on posability and actually looking like the source material, can see that much already.
Pcm979
Speaking of accuracy and head sculpts... I'd actually like a less game-accurate head sculpt for the WfC/FoC Seekers. Something about it always struck me as slightly fugly. I think it's to do with the way the sharp nasolabial folds and long, squared-off chin interact.

YMMV, of course.
Girl Pants
I don't know how, but this toy makes me like this design more than I did in-game.

May hold out for the Takara version though. Partially because I have United WfC Megatron and Soundwave already.

Nope the classics seeker mold headsculpt is the closest thing to the cartoons yet,dead ringer,I don't care too much about possibility ,the headsculpt is why I like it so much.

MP-11 is the dead ringer. I agree that Classics head sculpt isn't a bad representation and is pretty close and I don't fault it, as its the rest of the figure that doesn't really meet today's standards, not the face, but its not absolutely accurate.

I for the most part pass on today's standards lol
I love the classics seeker mold,great headsculpt ,perfect proportions,the plane mode holds together really well,love the paint apps (except the two American Starscreams) never liked those null rays too much but nobody is perfect.
menasor73ct
Ok my bad,I meant nobody except g1 soundwave is perfect.
And diaclone blue bluestreak ...I'm going to go cry now lol!
gothsaurus
Any way to flip this guys wings around to more resemble the tetrajets? You know... without major surgery.

Get Takara's for game accuracy, and Hasbro's for IDW accuracy
