    its ok as a homage to the t30 version but definitely underwhelming as the first slipstream figure in a while. hopefully with tf one starscream next year a slipstream deco wont be far behind.

    So, disappointment aside, I will buy this since my Legends version destroyed itself (and yours will too!). Does anyone know when preorders will be available?

    Wow...

    they could have at least remolded the torso to have a seeker \'esq cockpit and intakes.

    Oh. It\'s exactly as I expected, but what I expected isn\'t what I really wanted...
    whatever

    Nah. We need a mold refresh to get the rest of the Seekers out of it. Plus Origins variants of the existing ones without 'battle damage' paint.

    Really digging her. The headsculpt and colors are great. It's not a proper "G1" Slipstream, but I think it looks good.

    What they should've done is called this Animated Slipstream and logged off for the day.

    ... Yeah, seeing how I\'ve already got the windblade version of this and the fact this version seems pretty minuscule in molding differences besides the head she\'s a skip for me... Her face doesn\'t look quite right either for some reason, but the fact they didn\'t put 5mm ports on her upper arms for the guns not changed her wings any at all just makes me yawn.

    The head just looks awful IMO. Like even if the body got the retooling it needed that head is just weird and bad for slipstream.

    I don't think anyone complained about the LG Takara version of Slipstream which shared a mold with Windblade.
    But it's specifically Takara so I suppose individuals felt they HAD to like it... or... *gasp* genuinely did!

    But since it's part of the Legacy line... therefore there must be hate towards it.

    Honestly, it's fine figure. It's simple, you don't have to like or dislike it. If you plan on buying it, great. If not, don't dump on it unless you really find a valid reason. Don't dump on it just for the sake of boredom.

    Personally, I'm not buying it because I did not buy Windblade either and the figure just doesn't do anything for my collection.

    No, I did not purchase the LG Slipstream either.

    I think this is a good looking figure and interpretation, just not for cyberverse. I think if people want g1 version they can get the g2 ramjet and do a head swap. Would be the best we can do for that ATM.

    Ok this is worse than I thought it was initially. The only new parts are the head and null rays. I thought the forearm winglets on her arms were new but no, they're reused from windblade. Man this kinda sucks.

    She looks good but isn\'t the Cybertron version of this character more beefy?

    If someone makes gap fillers for those waffle wings, I would definitely pick it up.

    Nah, they're gonna do Animated Starscream at some point and then watch the money roll in with like 7 repaints.

    Which would hopefully include a Sunstorm for once. He’s still a glaring omission from the many Siege and Earthrise repaints.

    And I bet they'll do a bunch that weren't in the show as well.

    I will be genuinely shocked if there's not an Origins Seeker 3-pack with the Siege molds one last time, by this time next year.
