    toy =/= character

    unless I missed the one G1 episode where Optimus was unable to help because his fists fell out of their sockets, and Bumblebee couldn't walk anywhere because he had two legs but only one foot.

    Huh?...he's got hands, alright. The one scene where he transforms and lands in that city street, one of his hands transforms into a a machine gun that he uses to attack Ratchet and Ironhide with. Also, in the aerial battle against the human flown F-22s, his claws slices one or two of them apart.

    However, in the IDW 'Reign of Starscream', SS manages to pick up the Sector Seven jeep with his feet...just like a bird catches prey with its talons.

    If Starscream plays a larger role in TF2, I'm hoping that he gets both a Leader and a deluxe toy. I picked up the voyager many times, and despite liking the robot, I really didn't like how bulky the vehicle mode was (or the incorrect vertical stabilizers).

    I'd be really surprised (and dissapointed) if Hasbro doesn't make a leader-class SS for TF2.

    I want to know what they're doing with that model post-production! :lol  In all seriousness, auction it off, give the money to charity... I'd love to own it, but I don't think I could afford it.

    I'll assume that a leader class Starscream toy will have fingers/a hand, but have a automorph gimmick that allows a missile launcher to cover his hands, much like Prime's, although hopefully more hidden than Primes was.

    It's not the same F22 they modified it to look more like the G1 Screamer..

    I've been predicting a leader class starscream for TF2. But I assume there will only be 3 leader class toys as before. Presumably at least 1 will be an autobot, and if 'the Fallen' is in the movie, he'll get the other.

    Anyway, any new Starscream toy better have hands. And a much better alt mode.

    :inquisiti  what the hell are you talking about? Alt mode is an F22, the same F22 design they used in TF1...

    unless they changed the bot mode to look more streamlined "G-1" but other then that the jet mode is a Stock F22 (in appearance).

    All this shows is that there is an F-22 in TF2.

    Not to be a dick or anything, because I take your meaning, but G1 Bumblebee DID actually have two separate feet. :)

    Any chance the bot mode will be different from first movie? I don't want another gorilla with chicken legs with a bug face.
