    Yeah, because of G1 season three, but it could still work in the movie continuity too as a way of bringing him back.

    No.

    I always hated that plotline in the cartoon.

    That's the last thing that would happen bro. You really think Michael Bay would go that route to bring back Starscream?

    Honestly I could only think it may work if he wasn't an actual ghost, but was more like a "ghost" seen by only one character (like megatron for example). And more of a figment of his imagination (like bumblebee is to starscream in Idw now) and would question his decisions etc... problem is starscream wasn't a well enough developed character to do that and there isn't enough screen time for them to have scenes wih megatron and starscreams "ghost". That is really the only way to do it and it would be more of a nod to that g1 concept then an actual using of it. But even that is a far far stretch.

    Why does Starscream get to be a ghost?

    maybe instead of being a spark ghost like in G1, he could be a program ... maybe even taking over a KSI lab or something and building a new body

    but like someone else posted, he didnt have enought development for anything like that to happen

    No, Movie Starscream never really brought anything interesting to the table. Still annoys me they never fleshed him out. I only recall him once "maybe" trying to claim the spot as leader of the Decepticons until Megatron returned in ROTF. Other than that he was pretty much a bland coward.

    Nothing in the movies was developed to the point where his character was memorable enough or unique enough to be worth bringing back.
    Nothing in the movies hinted remotely to Starscream being connected with a character enough for him to appear as a ghost to anyone.
    Nothing in the movies hinted remotely to the idea that a Transformer could return as some form of ghost.

    As such, logically nothing is in place for the idea to work or be done in the movie-verse and bringing in a ghost of a character that will not have appeared in Transformers; Age of Extinction or Transformers; The Last Knight is not really worth it. Its going to be pushing it bringing back some of the human characters from the original trilogy and expecting the general audience to remember them, it would be even worse if they had to re-introduce the ghost of a robotic character who barely had any development to begin with.

    Starscream as a character isn't worth it, and it wouldn't fit the more grounded Bayverse anyhow.

    Only in a prequel. Cybertron backstory film, or flashback -- or a rebuilt KSI robot of sorts. Who knows, but I doubt we'll see him back in the current line of films.

    Personally, I'd much rather see Skywarp.

    HOLY FUCKING SHIT

    HAZEKIAH DOESN'T LIKE SOMETHING IN THIS FRANCHISE.

    Goddamn I've asked you hundreds of times to tell me something you didn't like, to which you always played your little game of avoiding the question, when here you merely needed nine words to express distaste in something. This is truly a momentous occasion.

    Movie Starscream was not (as yet) an interesting enough character to warrant such a thing. But I wouldn't mind (as I mentioned in another thread) if The Last Knight alters the timeline and Starscream is still alive (and able to actually get some character development). Such a time change might explain why Barricade is back and Megs is Megatron and not "Galvatron".

    No, you've constantly pestered me to talk shit about the movies and idgaf what you want from me any more than I wish to support your blustery, ignorant, and overdriven grudge against them, so I've rather pointedly ignored your misguided, arrogant, and incessant efforts to that end.

    But I'll happily talk shit about how ******ed the sacrosanct G1 cartoon was all day long, as I already have countless times on these boards, lol.

    PAY ATTENTION.

    The only thing worth bringing him back for is the name and the association of a more interesting character. G1, Armada, IDW, Animated, Prime, maybe even Energon but I'm not watching it to find out. So no. I'll take his more interesting brother Starrscream, or maybe they could give Skywarp a character (they won't). Probably wouldn't even give him his warping power. These movies are fun time-wasters, but not much else.
    Also I wandered back into the movie thread, hi everybody!

    Because it already happened in G1.

    All that would be told in the movie he would come back as a ghost.

    I would like to see him kicking arse in a good flashback, but as a Gggghost, not unless Scooby and the gang make a cameo.
