    Ah, okay, I digress. I don't read the comics, but I'm still doubting that he'll have them in the movie.

    Holy shit. I'm not the biggest fan of the movie stuff, but THAT is one seriously cool transformation. It's nice to see the toys actually pulling off transformations that accurately portray BOTH modes. Now everything finally seems a little more possible in teh 'real world'.

    Just too bad about the smaller size.

    I don't know why, but when I watch the movie, I don't see a monkey kite, but both this and the first voyager SS toys still look like monkey kites. Yes, I guess they got it right if you compare it to certain stills, but just from memory this toy doesn't make me think of what I saw in the movie as SS. Just not a very good looking toy (in robot mode).

    Looking good, glad he has hands! Alt mode is a vast improvement, but I'm not really sure about robot mode (except for the hands, of course). Comparing him to the old one, there is something off in the new one and I can't put my finger on it...

    But I'll definitely get him!!

    edit: seen the video review..damn he's smaller! :(  but he does look better on video!

    Is it possible to push the Pilot cabine more inside the figure in robot mode (maybe just before completing the transformation)?
    There look like there is a sort of separation of the piece that allow that.

    it's a shame they're using the old mold for skywarp.

    would buy all the repaints of this!

    You can see he has them in the teaser trailer, if you check some HD screencaps from it.

    Anyway, the figure is looking mighty nice, his transformation is sweet, I'll probably be picking him up.

    And oh shit, that's probably the best SS mold I've EVER seen! I have all 4 Takara Masterpiece Starscreams(MP-3,MP-6,MP-7,USA Edition) and I can't believe I think this one beats all of them! What a masterpiece in engineering, look at that transformation, this is truly the best Starscream ever!

    This guy is bought for the alt mode alone. The bot mode does have a great amount of detail too.

    I love the jet mode, but I'm not a fan of the way the chest and everything fits together in robot mode. The lower torso just looks off, like he's too wide or something.

    Still, I might pick one up if it's not too expensive when I see it. The jet mode is awesome.

    I don't get all these negative comments towards the robot mode, are we looking at the same figure?

    He's EXACTLY proportioned like in the movie, including his lower torso. That's how Starscream was designed, he's wide.

    Love the new mold. Love it. If there are 6 repaints, I'll buy it 6 times. one thing tho... why didn't they use the premium silver paint? Dammit Hasbro. That's so cheesy. Also, why not use the tats as an excuse to give Screamer more of his color scheme? A big black tat on the face would give use the black head, some subdued reds and blues (dark metallic shades) would give him his color... would like nice. I may have to try my first repaint.

    Isn't there something transformable at the cockpit level? It really look like there is a way those pieces here could be separate (at the places showed by the green lines):

    A definite improvement over the first toy, one I shall be looking out for.

    *edit* having watched the video review the jet mode is so much of an improvement it isn't even funny.

    his legs are too small, on the toy they are short and have human-style articulation, in the movie picture you've shown its clear to see that his legs should be much longer and articulated like a horse's back legs, ie. the ankle is 1/3 the way up the leg and the 'foot' is just actually toe-tips

    on the plus side, i like his g1 arm-cannons.. what i'd really like to see now is aftre prime gets trashed by the decepticons in the forest, starscream to turn around from the top of the cliff and fire off a few parting shots, which inadvertently leads to prime being saved and repaired

    I'm so glad I passed on the original Movie Starscream now. Proper hands and lack of ridiculous undercarriage really is a mighty blessing. I just wish that if the hands are to be so poorly hidden in jet mode they weren't such a standout blue colour. They look kind of goofy, wish they were the same white as the rest of him. But that's only a very minor complaint.
