    Starscream is the black sheep of the Alternity Questors, mostly due to his uniquely weird head sculpt and "evil quad-optics" (aka four bug-eyes look). Personally, I don't think it's too bad. Could use some dark silver on his face to make him more Starscream-y, and the four bug-eyed look really reminds me of Bayformers Starscream's eyes (I might paint the horizontal bar over his eyes white or silver).

    Other gripes being his more "boring" matte white colors (yeah, yeah, G1 Starscream's supposed to be gray just like Henkei and MP-11 XD). The mold itself has stability issues (the waist and shoulder pieces not plugging in very securely, the doors liking to pop off the ball joints, the license plate falling out easily, the leg ratchet joints being insanely tight, the ball/swivel joints being very loose, the free-spinning back wings not secured from moving around at all). Add to this the Orochi's odd sports car styling and some fans are understandably cold toward the Alternity Questors. Skywarp and Thundercracker get more love due to their metallic colors and more normal-looking G1 head sculpts.

    Doesn't stop me from liking them, however. XD I have all three MISB and they look awesome just sitting there in the clear window packages with the nice character art on the side. They're admittedly not my favorite Alternity mold; first place belongs to Convoy/Optimus's amazing GT-R mold, second goes to Megatron's Fairlady 370Z and kickass samurai design.


    Haha, Prime Screamer showing Bayscreamer how it's done. XD Ugh, I hated that death scene in DOTM due to how contrived and stupid it all was. SS should have transformed into alt mode and broke Mach 2.5, with Sam winding up as little more than scraps of meat on a hook at the end of his tow line.

    Yeah I have most of those issues myself, especially the doors falling off and the tight ratchets in the hips, but I personally think the strange look of the Orochi is a plus, not a minus

    Oh, I totally agree with you. =) I do wish Skywarp was given a shiny black paint job though to really give off that H.R. Giger/Aliens vibe, heh, instead of them painting him purple to match the real life Orochi's optional purple.

    I actually like his purple color, it goes with the whole "unconventional" theme; not only is his car mode and robot design unusual looking, but he's not in the color scheme you expect from Skywarp, yet it's still a very attractive color (granted, it helps that purple is my favorite color)

    As much as I want a Shockwave I'd rather wait for the FoC version that I spend all my willpower willing it to exist.

    Yes.....shower me with praise!!! Just kidding. Thanks for the shout out, bro.
    I love that design but didn't like the size. Megs and Prime from the Cybertron series are my #1 and #2 for molds that I hope get remade into deluxe or voyager size.
