    SS looks great. I'm surprised how well they did at the deluxe class. I figured it would only be the voyager that really captured the prime look.

    The one part of the prime model I really love is the fact they used real missiles instead of a null ray like gun. Really adds to the realistic look.

    As great as all the Prime toys look, Arcee is the only one I'm getting for the moment.

    I have a feeling we'll get a bigger Starscream, Megatron and Optimus sometime in the future, and I already have a deluxe movie Bumblebee.

    Yikes. These photos tend to show jetmodes from the best angle they can, but....even with that......

    Well, the robot mode is alright, but as with Animated Screamer I definitely can't see this mold passing for Slipstream like some people are saying. He doesn't have anywhere close to the hips for it.

    Wow. I REALLY didn't think they'd be able to get him THAT accurate. That's very impressive.

    All I can say is that...this toy solidifies this Starscream as being my favorite Starscream of all time.

    I'm gonna buy this and Arcee as soon as possible. :D

    Do you own leader Starscream? I really like the look of this Prime SS, but in my opinion nothing tops the leader.

    He's clearly talking about the character of Prime Starscream.

    Too scrawny in robot mode, but the jet mode is fantastic. Yet another buy for me.

    I don't like this at all. There is a ton of robot kibble hanging underneatht he jet, and whilst the robot mode is ok, he has a tail sticking out of his backside!

    Nice one, though I'm not a big fan of his design, not Starscreamish enough for my tastes (and he's lacking red). Not that I'm one of those "G1 is better" guys, but if you're gonna call him Starscream, make him look like him, at least the head or overall color scheme (which is a similar complaint I got about Soundwave, but his design is creepy enough to look interesting).

    So, I guess I'll wait 'till some reviews and an underbelly shot before I drop the hammer.
