    I hope it has a screen accurate "Detachable Arm" gimmick.

    Still not sure what all the fuss is about in this thread. This figure, so far, appears to be the most accurate Bayformer Starscream figure we've seen. That's a tremendous plus in my eyes. But, I guess if you don't like the movie-verse, you have something to complain about.

    I fully intend to pose this guy upside down with Prime standing on his face.

    *buzzer* wrong. A voice that is NOT Hugo Weaving says "Megatron!" as the Megatronosaurus lands in the alley. After landing, while rising, Megatron merely growls and "rolls his eyes". (As if disgusted by the poor performance of his warrior).

    I've listened to the scene several times, including with $499 Shure monitor studio headphones. It's definitely not the same modulated voice as Megatron. It's slightly higher and raspier, and has a whiny tone to it, perfectly suited to a mentally ill robot that just had his hand cut off.

    Plus, it makes no sense for Megatron to land in a deserted alley, and say his own name to no one. In the hanger, it made sense to say "I AM MEGATRON!" to the weak humans who thought he could be contained... but alone in an alley while a subordinate is getting owned by a bunch of GM products? C'mon, THINK.

    I honestly thought it was megs saying his own name as well... That same lower pitched raspy voice was used in rotf while megs rised behind megan fox in the abandoned warehouse scene.. I could be very wrong though..

    Listen again. It's definitely not Hugo Weaving saying "Megatron"... It *is* Megatron doing the grumbling growl, but it is, in fact, Brawl who is crying out for Megatron for assistance. If you listen closely, you can definitely hear a tiny whine in the voice. It is definitely not Megatron trying to remind himself what his own name is.

    Anyway... before someone tries to claim this is hijacking the thread, I am officially bowing out of this thread, and my final remarks are thus:

    "Leader Starscream is Ohmygodicannotbelievethisistocoolsweetgeebusimusthavethisdeargodthereisapartyinmypantsimust runtothestoreandpreorder45ofthesesoicanoutnerdeveryoneontheboards cool.

    He's not, but he's a very well-spoken member that deserves your respect. Besides, you made the typical "OMG THIS IS SO COOL I MUST POST (10000000000000 BAY EMOTICONS/EVERY EMOTICON IN THE SELECTION)!!!!!1!1!1!1!1!1!" reply that annoys everyone on the boards so much.

    Incorrect. If you watch that scene, he unmistakably mouths "Megatron" as he lands, specifically when he crouches. In the following shot, he turns and growls something indecipherable.

    Yea, it doesn't make sense, but that's what happened.
