    I bet we'll see the same exact design for Starscream in the next film (with the modified head and colors).

    Prime 1 never fails to impress.

    Can't wait to get more images of this guy.

    Looks very nice. But I’ll hold out for a 3A release. A starscream would be dope as well.

    I guess postproduction change this.

    Obviously this is Starscream, they just do it in Bayformers way.

    I saw it somewhere here on forum, someone noticed difference on Cybertron's footage where seekers are and in first trailer it looks like Starscream and in second, they change him and add gas mask.

    Well, his name is not mentioned in movie and he is not triplechanger. I think some holes in new movie is just because everyone thought they are making prequel.

    Yeah, I think you're right on the mark with this. My suspicion all along was that this was a Bayformers prequel that they did some last-minute surgery on. The G1wank Cybertron sequence they teased early looked so slapdash and so much like a game-cinematic, it really felt like they were desperately trying to turn the project around by pandering to geewunners.

    Which, frankly, I'm glad they did. To finally have a halfways GOOD live-action Transformers movie is worth it. I really wish this film were a TOTAL clean break from Bayformers.

    Wasn't it pretty much confirmed that the Cybertron scenes were added pretty late in an interview recently? Maybe I'm mixing things up.

    Anyways, I'm actually a bit disappointed in this statue? It nails the look of Blitzwing, but the pose is....Really boring. He's just standing there. Not even looking menacing or anything, or holding his weapon out. I usually love these statues, but the problem with them is that if you don't get the pose and presence 100% right, then it's just a big ol' nothing. Feel the same way about the Sideshow Gipsy Danger statue.

    If you haven’t seen the movie, don’t read this. This is possibly a prequel to the other movies. But may not be. Could be an all around reboot. But Bee takes his Camaro form at the end. If it is a prequel, then Blitzwing can’t be Starscream because Bee kills the fucker. I agree that he looks like what Starscream should have looked like. A lot of the names of the characters never matched our ideas of the characters. The first time I saw a clip of Sentinel Prime, I was sure it was Alpha Trion. Nope. We don’t get to choose, but we should for nostalgia’s sake. I honestly think they like screwing with us.

    Main villain? :lolol  If by main, you mean appears for less than 5 minutes and (presumably) dies, sure. What a waste of Blitzscream. He certainly didn't triple change either.

    Looks beautiful besides the head & wings being so small.

    Just saw it today. It is a prequel. But it does enough that if it wants to separate itself from the other movies it could. Did you see his camero robot mode? As well as Optimus on earth. Doesn’t fit with the autobot intro from movie one. It could really go either way. But I definitely don’t want it to be starscream getting killed off like that. Although it beats getting your head blown off by Sam Whitwickey......

    Yeah. Like I don’t like statues at all but the sculpts are usually good and sometimes the poses are incredible. But when it’s not doing anything interesting that’s when it really sinks in how it’s a waste of time.

    I guess I didn’t pay attention enough in the forest scene with Optimus. I saw a still of it here somewhere but forgot where.

    Prime 1 I think is getting better with dynamic poses in their transformers line. Bee looks really good and this is definitely more dynamic than previously released prime 1 transformers statues. They are even adding more of a diorama to the base on him and bee that was absent on previous transformers statues.

    I like it a lot and will be on my radar for sure.
