    The reviewer in the earlier linked video shows Star Storm between the Three zero Blitzwing and Soundwave at the 4:51 mark.

    i don't get it either but since i started with threezero prime and soundwave i can't complain too much. and with BB movie designs dead before they even started i doubt threezero will make anyone past the four they've done, so i'll gladly take this and that one megatron (that i still hope is actually coming...)

    Looking good. A little big for my tastes but not outsized like the 3zero (yes i realize its basically 3zero scale since blitzwing is bigger than the cybertron seekers for some reason)....he'll be bigger than mpm-12 optimus but IMO thats OK. hopefully its not like an adult and a 12 year old though.

    Hell, maybe they can come up with a BBM Prime that doesn't suck and scales with it. Right now this looks to scale with the Freedom Leader and Fire Scorpion Prime.

    Dang it, 2 starscreams releasing close to each other and this one looks like it’s easier and more fun to transform. But both are good looking. Choices….

    I think I'm going to have to pass on this for now as it doesn't really have a place in my collection, but good lord does it look good.

    Yeah this is where I'm at with this. I don't need a huge expensive figure of this design that won't really pair with anything else. Does look really good though (aside from the vehicle mode cockpit as others have commented).

    Looking at the video, the guy said there's hinge that has no function.

    I am sure it's for the conehead variant because the hinge is ended up on the back.

    I’m tempted by this, will have to see what qc is like but for the price it seems like a good figure atm and the designs great for a cybertronian seeker especially as the movie verse is typically awful designs

    How tall is this supposed to be? Can't find a solid size measurement. Wondering if his head goes past 10 inches.

    You can’t find out the heights of threezero soundwave or blitzwing?

    Nothing beats the exact measurement for the figure itself. Photos can lie. Also, shutup smart-ass, I gifted you a free piece of figure in the mail. Show some respect to those who help you out.

    Eh don't worry I use the good old technic of dragging an image of ruler (Might be slightly not accurate, but good enough as rough estimate)
    So Blitzwing is 26.92 cm so Starscream is around 24 cm/ 9.4 inches

    Thanks for doing that, I really appreciate it!
    However I thought dlx Soundwave was really tall, in the 11"+ region. I saw it in person as well and def found it larger than the average leader mp which is about 10.5 or so right?
    This is why I was concerned as I wanted it go to with despotron and didn't want screamer to be taller to the head.
    I'm feeling screamer to actually be head to head if not a tad taller than despotron.

    Edit:
    Just found online that dlx soundwave is 11.2", so it looks like if you took about an inch or so off the top of soundwave, you get to screamers height which looks like just about 10" or a little more. Again why it seems like a really close match up to something like despotron and why I am eager for exact measurements. :D

    Isn’t despotron a different continuity? Like IDW or something like that

    Oh I don't care about any of that stuff. If it looks like the right figure for me and my collection, that's all that matters. Continuities mean nothing to me given the insanely splintered lore of the transformers to begin with. ;) 
    Despotron is just a maketoys interpretation of G1 style megs.

    Only thing I gotta say is I hope this guy has a lot of heft like zeta; cuz after handling zeta it really set the bar high for high quality mpm figures he’s probably one of my favorite molds next to BA prime
