    Starscream isn't really doing anything for me, but the Minicons look fantastic. Definitely picking those up when I get the chance.

    Those Minicons are awesome, but Starscream looks weedy. I'll wait for the Tarkara version.

    I like the original Armada Starscream a lot better. I usually go nuts over every jet/spaceship they make but this one blows. Easy pass.

    Very cool mini-cons. Starscream's proportions seem squished in a bit, shame that the legs don't start a bit lower on the torso. It's an ok effort however. The design itself is one of my favorites for Starscream.

    And suddenly I know what minor modification needs to be made to original figure to put it on par with this. Three addtional hinges were all it needed to massivly improve it and that doesn't even involve touching the legs.

    Minicons are bought on sight.

    Calling something you don't like a McDonald's toy is getting old.

    Damn it. DAMN IT ALL. The ONE thing I wanted, and it's nonexistent on this figure. Is wrist swivel that hard to implement? :banghead: 


    That aside, I'll probably still pick one up- hopefully on clearance or something so I won't regret it. But the lack of wrist swivel man... I wonder how hard it would be to chop his hand off and insert a pin.

    Starscream is disappointing compared the Proto Pics. That and it's just too small, should have been a voyager.

    Okay, this is driving me nuts. If Windsheer's 7H37A = Theta and Runway's VP51LN = Upsilon, what is Heavytread's TVCB1D6? TUCBIDG? Did somebody in design go to the University of Cincinnati?

    Wow.... Hasbro version of starscream looks like shit. I will be waiting to buy the Takara version that looks worlds better and actually has paint!! I'd rather pay double Hasbro's price to have a great representation of a character I love.

    I'm perfectly fine with these two (or is it four?) sure, the colors are a bit lacking, but I can roll with them. I'm just glad Armada is coming back.

    It's been about 10 years now, right?

    I'll have the set tomorrow morning. I'm looking forward to seeing them in the plastic.

    Curious as to whether there will be a remold/repaint into another character down the road.

    Finally! A Pic of Windshear with her gun in 'bot mode.
    I wish they kept Runway's engines' green\yellow appearance
    On Centuritron, I think he looks better with Bodyblock's arms tucked behind the legs.
    I so want this set.
