Just got this guy yesterday and loved him so much, I went and ordered the smaller Galaxy Force version. No, that's not a knock, but I just love the mold/figure so much, I had to have more. It's *that* cool. Anyhow, onto the review! Robot Mode: Starscream comes packaged in robot mode, which is really awesome. I never thought I'd like it when they started packaging TF's in their robot modes, but Starscream friggin deserves it. Prime and Megatron, too. I won't do mesurements or anything, but lets just say he's huge. Taller than Unicron, but not by much. Each arm has a different weapon deployed when you plug in a Cyber Key. Unlike the smaller Starscream, the Cyber Keys are plugged into the actual arm, not the back of the figure. There is a spot at the back of the figure to hold one Cyber Key, which is a neat addition. Not really an addition, since it was already there in the mold, but it's nice they pointed it out. Another neat feature is of course his crown. If they would have released this version w/o it, I would have felt a little ripped off, but the crown makes it all worth it. It seperates him from any other TF in the line, as well as his smaller self. He really looks like the leader of the Decepticons/Destrons. The right arm has a blade(just like smaller SS) that pops out when a Cyber Key is inserted. Also, if you have batteries inserted, if you move the arm up or down, you get a blade *clang* noise. The left arm has a cannon with launching missile that is deployed with help from a Cyber Key. It almost looks like a smaller version of Shockblast's cannon arm, but not quite. As with his right arm, when you move his left arm up or down, you get a "weapon" noise. Pretty neat. The button on his left missile pod by his head activates the basic electronic features. His missile pods light up and a laser firing noise is made. I could have sworn his eyes were supposed to light up as well, but mine don't. Transformation into jet mode is dead on with the smaller version. Fold the stabilizer wings up and push them together so they're one. Unsnap the forearms and swing them back 180 degrees, then snap them into place. Push the arms up and outward so they're at a 90 degree angle with the rest of the body. They should be facing out, or toward you. Fold the torso forward until it latches with the waist piece. Here comes the tricky part: spread the arms/wings away from the body. You don't have to pull the whole assembly, just grab by the thruster and gently push towards the stabilizer fins. Next, make sure the legs are parallel to each other. Then unfold the "toe blade" out from under each foot. After that, fold the heel underneath where the toe blade was before. Rotate the feet so the bottom is flush with the rest of the bottom leg. Now rotate the bottom legs so the flat pieces are parallel to each other. Ok, so I lied, that's not the tricky part. *This* is the tricky part. You have to fold the bottom legs over the upper legs and then latch them underneath the ship. Two things you have to remember: 1) make sure the nosecone is folded out, as the legs won't clip under it if it's not, and 2) make sure you moved the arms/wings earlier, because this is where it counts. Don't try to force the legs up and underneath, or you may damage the arm/wing pieces. It's almost happened to me several times. I find it easier if I rotate the legs forward one notch, then start folding, then bring it up underneath. Once that's done, push the legs and foot pieces together. If you want, you can add the uber cool crown onto his head in vehicle mode, as it sits just fine there, and looks cool to boot. The missile pod lights and sound work just fine in this mode. However, for obvious reasons(ie: you can't move them) his left and right arms don't make any noise. All in all a simply awesome toy. Yes, it's a little expensive, but it's well worth your time and effort. If you're a Starscream fan, or just a transformer fan in general, you'll like this toy. The transformation might be too simple for some, but I love it. I dislike TF's that take an hour to get from one mode to another. King Starscream is right up my alley. The only negative I can find is that his eyes don't light up, but I'm still fiddling with mine, so maybe I'm missing something. This was my first review, but please don't feel you have to be kind. Any and all critiques and comments are welcome.
