    If he's got the same damned head as HA BB why don't I just keep my HA BB instead?! Yeesh.

    Ohhhh, so now everyone's liking Starscream. All we needed was a full picture without the MechTech weps and you guys would start to appreciate him :D 

    And BB looks quite nice too.

    He's OK. He's basically the Breakaway of DOTM for now....

    Which by all means isn't bad... they're just small budget leaugue toys.

    Very likely (just based off past releases) that there will be an expensive Takara version that fixes this issue beautifully.

    everyone agrees that the head is off of HA BB which I totally can see. However if this is a leader WOW that is one small ass leader. I think to pay such a primuim for a toy that probably should be more voyager size kinda sucks but ah well...The other thing, to me for a leader toy, I expect more. I mean you'd think that this toy could have been a huge upgrade from HA and could have been a a real Altinator quality toy for the price we are being charged...working doors, real seats, steering...the whole works! Also when we compare this leader to the leader Bee we have now it lacks in features...gone are the shoulder rockets and the change from hand to cannon. But whatever...the toy I see now I would have loved to see it as a deluxe size, it would have been a total buy. So for now (like most of the other HFTD toys) Battle Blades Bee still reigns supreme.

    Now Deluxe Starscream? After the proper transformation I am totally getting this one! Can't wait for it to come out! I do agree that this should have been a voyager but only because then there would have been room for the Leader like features (wrist guns, rocket launcher). The only real grip I have against the mech tech is that this makes the toy less movie accurate. We have to rely on these "Kiddy style" gimmick guns for his weapons instead of fashioning is original artillery as part of the transformation. Like like the direction they took the mech tech for Starscream though...it could have been worse... like those hideous guns on the cars. So props to hasbro making Starscreams mech tech sort of work with the alt mode.

    So as far as my first buy from this new line: Make mine Deluxe Starscream

    TWO hands, Hasbro. Give us a BB with TWO hands. And why DOES he have a canon hand and Shockwave DOES NOT?

    I just love the fact that there's no electronics on the Bee itself, I can always detach the Mech thingy if I don't like ite, hehe. :) 

    ^mrclean08: well, Bee fans need their fix, hehe. :)

    No it isn't. Unless you think RotF Prime is a "small ass leader."

    The Deluxe mold has two hands. Why do you think I'm sticking with that?

    As for Shockwave, someone as badass as him deserves a transforming arm.

    I'll get Leader BB since he represents his new look in DOTM. I just wished his gun arm could transform into a hand, but that's a minor gripe for me. Otherwise, I think he looks pretty cool.

    Starscream is looking more and more promising... Bee looks good too, but I have no desire for something that ridiculously out of scale. Unless we got Supreme class versions of everyone else :p .

    I hate to chime in with the standard "too many BB molds" comment, but this just reminds me of christmas season, standing in TRU with a woman saying, "well, I know my grandson already has Bumblebee" and i'm just chuckling as a realize a huge flaw in this kind of market saturation.

    Oh nooo, not again!! The missing hand on the right arm of BB with that tiny blaster instead!! (T_T) shoot...
    That doesn't make any sense, especially on a Leader Class!
    Why do they easily invest much more thinking and design/engineering on other characters and give us that crap when it comes to BB?? I really don't get it...
    It would be such an easy task to design an inter-changeable weapon-hand.

    Come on, I was expecting an improved HA BB so far, but this is pretty far from being considered a Leader Class at all with such a lack of details.
    NO right hand, NO ball joint at the wrist, NO ball joint at the ankles.
    And WTF is that mess on his chest??? (/_<)

    At this point the Deluxe Class Starscream looks much better to me!

    Exactly what I thought, it could be.
