    I already have the voyager and it is pretty cool, but is the FE version worth it to buy if I already have the voyager.
    Please list reasons why or why not it is worth it.
    Also keep in mind I am kinda low on cash.
    EDIT: I thank you all for all of your help. You have truly helped me see the awesome in FE Starscream. I truly wish that I could get him but I can't. I have been looking for him recently and have not found him. I have suspended the hunt. I need to save my money for upcoming FOC toys, and I already have a awesome Transformers Prime Voyager Starscream.
    I really wish that I could pick the FE version up, but I simply don't have the money.
    The only way that I can get him is through a gift. Thank you all for all of your help, I have really grown to appreciate the mold. Once again thank you all!

    Do it, and then sell the voyager or sell it first and then you'll have the money for the FE toy.

    Honestly, if I were you, I would keep the Voyager. Better looking alt-mode, more accurate missiles, and... it's bigger.

    That said, the FE version scales better in robot mode, and I honestly do like its robot mode a bit more, but not enough to shell out if I already have the more expensive one (that you won't be able to resell for much, either).

    If money's tight then I would pass.

    First Edition Starscream is a better size in most peoples' opinions, there's no piece of crap Mechtech gun to worry about, and if you want to complete a Seeker trio later on you will be one third of the way there.

    I agree with everyone. I didn't even consider buying the Voyager because the FE is so great. Prices are coming down now, btw. Right?

    If you can find it Toys R Us for $15 go for it. He just goes better with the rest of the Prime toys than the Voyager.

    FE Starscream is great. I didn't see the need to buy the Voyager since I liked it so much so I can't really vote having both in hand...but I've looked at the Voyager in person many times and I still think the FE looks much better.

    Get the fe. If your a hard core seeker fan you can also get skywarp and thundercracker in the same mold.

    I don't own the voyager, but I must respond with a resounding "YES".

    FE Starscream is a fantastic figure, even if you own another version of this Starscream, he's EASILY worth it.

    The alt-mode looks great, the transformation is fun, the robot mode is HIGHLY articulated and poseable, he's fun to mess with, he's got a ton of charm and personality, he's just a freaking solid Transformer in every sense.

    He's actually replaced Animated Starscream as my favorite seeker mold. So, yeah, you should totally buy him. I promise you won't regret it.

    You should buy the FE Starscream. When you open it up and play it, then you'll know my reasoning for saying you should buy it :D
