    I honestly didn't expect Starscream to have a deluxe. I figured it would be Knockout. Still he looks interesting. He seems to have more Movie Starscream aspects on him then ever due to how squat he look. He could make a good Terrorsaur repaint. I may repurpose him into a Cybertronian version of himself.

    Definitely can't wait to see what starscream looks like in person. I'm still passing on him since I like the other figures more, but this looks a little bit interesting.

    My guess is no, they aren't saving space for shockwave, hard shell, or even ratchet but it is just beginning of the nd of the voyager class. FOC had only two voyager molds and it seems like the class is going to be cut. This is my own personal opinion but I could be wrong.

    This image sucks, so I'll wait for a better view before I say "It's crap" or "It's worth buying."

    I guess this explains who the mystery missing number was for the assortment so far.

    The way to get clearer pics is to wait. This is all we have because someone- probably someone in asia- got BH Smokescreen and Bulkhead early and there was an ad for Starscream on the box which he photographed. Bad picture of a small picture = terrible image. Eventually someone will get the actual figure and take pics or hasbro will release official images but for right now all we can do is wait- this is all that exists.

    Nobody really knows what BH is going to be about. Only one teaser for the show has been released. It showed Megatron, Starscream, Knockout and Shockwave looking the same as they've looked in every appearance in Prime so far and Shockwave introduces a dragon to Megatron. Presumably that dragon is Predaking, so we can assume he's in. We didn't see any autobots, so we don't know if they've been redesigned or if the weapons and armor are just gimmicks for the toys. Starscream did not look like this toy in the BH Promo, he looks like he always did. Whether that means he just hasn't been reformatted yet or if it won't happen at all in the cartoon remains to be seen.

    I'm failing to warm to the charms of the BHs line and these latest pics aren't helping. They just seem ugly, simplistic and garish, something I've not felt about Transformers since Beast Machines.

    But hey, if this is the direction Hasbro's focus groups suggest they should go to turn those profit line charts upside down then what do I know.

    Hard to judge with such a small/blury picture but I'm liking most of the main line BH stuff so far and there's nothing in this thats putting me off.

    Anybody else think Screamer and Soundwave hunting beasts together is a recipe for comedy gold? :D

    We don't know if the Voyager class is going to be cut. We've only seen two waves of FOC Voyagers and if I'm right we're going to get 40 or more Generations figures for the line and so far we're up to 22.
