Hopefully Thundercracker and Skywarp to follow in due course
Price is up, £121/$166, kind of where I expected it.
[Pre-Order] Cyber-Factory CF01 Star Storm Starscream
Waiting for Thrust, hoping he'll be cheaper.
This is very cool...
Man, I'm going to laugh so hard if a character who only appeared in the movie for a few seconds ends up having a better figure than Blitzwing, who had plenty of screen time.
pre-ordered, hope this sticks the landing.
Finally, a true MP tera jet. Hope it gets here soon.
Looks like a lot of figures gonna be delayed. ETA is supposedly in July, but China is in lockdown right now amidst to Delta variant emerging.
Looks like the review for this guy is already up
Looks good to me overall.
It's too bad the instructions are not good. At least the transformation sequence looks fairly straightforward.
I like the look in both modes and the alternate wing configuration is a nice option.
Hopefully the shoulder joints hold up well over time. I do prefer ratchet joints at such a location.
It's nice to see what appears to be good placement of die-cast metal.
Both Starscream gonna released around the same time? My wallet can't handle it!!
I also think it looks good, I just wish they utilize the robot mode faux clear cockpit into the alt mode actual cockpit/front part, I'm a little bit confused seeing the cockpit section, It kind of have an unfinished look to it without the gun attached, but perhaps it's true to the source material, and hey, it's a cybertronian jet.
Starscreamers rejoice !!
For some reason I thought that exposed nose cone was simply an incomplete prototype what do you do if you don't want to use the gun arm at the edge?
Hopefully this ships soon. Looks great
It's possible that if there's enough demand that someone will create an optional part to clip onto the nosecone to create a full looking structure.
The week of Starscream!
Also sad to see so little hype for this figure. Understandable though since virtually every figure for the Bumblebee movie line was a dumpster fire. All the Primes are either cheaply made or overly complex. Blitzwing suffers from QC and bad transformation. We were so close with Transcraft Bumblebee, but then the figure just falls apart. Lemon Prime's nice though, just not big enough.
If this doesn't have any QC issues, this could be the best Bumblebee movie figure. I love the diecast being used for the joints and struts to ensure they won't break easily.
This seems to be a solid toy so far.
The reviewer mentions that it feels like something designed a few years ago as opposed to current 3rd party toy offerings but I would prefer a solid toy from a few years back that holds up as opposed to cutting edge current toy design that is overly complicated and fiddly, and fragile.
Yeah, I saw that. The transformation also doesn't look that bad. It's just that you have to open up the figure then fold it back in.
Agreed, i still want to get an optimus that takes the best aspects from the official and 3P figures.
I just don't like how all these third party toys are big just for the sake to be on par with the ThreeZero line. I just don't get it.
Anyone have a side-by-side comparison pic btwn this Starscream and the Threezero Blitzwing?
