    THIS. This is the reason I finally caved and got this guy. I loved my leader and deluxe figures so I didn't feel a need for this guy but now that Blackout and Optimus have been shown to be so good I NEED to have a recreation of the forest scene hehe but honestly a Starscream who can look up is a first and amazing. Plus with my amazon reward points I literally got him for less than $5 including tax haha!

    Welp, that tears it - I'm looking at Nitro right now & if SS is taller, then he's definitely on my list, right next to Megatron.

    Yeah, I was kind of surprised at the fact SS was taller. Nitro is just a lot bulkier and less Dorito shaped.

    I dig the Blaze Doritos tho, lol - always thought his design looked very lithe & agile.

    Lithe and agile, just like a Dorito.

    I only wish the figure had forearm cannons. Always liked that element.

    I've got pair of gatlings stolen from HftD Highbrow. I original got a second Highbrow just to give those weapons to DotM Starscream to replace his dumb Mechtech weapon, but I think it's time for the superior Starscream toy to inherit them.

    I'm happy that the Voyager retains the 5mm ports under the wings, so that I'd have a place to store them in vehicle mode.

    Wait, he can look upwards? Either mines is super tight and won't bend up, or I've somehow never come across that joint.

    You've probably just not noticed it. It's a transformation joint. Without it, the head has problems clearing the collar. It also only works when his head is pointing straight forward, so if you turn his head, the joint is blocked, which might be why you haven't paid attention to it for articulation purposes. It's not super useful as such, it causes his head to sink into his torso.

    For arm gatlings, guns from DOTM Top Spin might work well. They worked well on the smaller DOTM Starscream but might look too small on this voyager.

    Why are official and 3P companies so adverse to selling weapons/accessories packs? They could do one per wave and it’s be awesome. Starscream had the missile hand, saw hand, and Gatling gun so he could have all three! You could package them with hooks and a blaster for Prime, a Gatling gun for Blackout, a mace for Grimlock, a blaster for Ratchet, etc.

    I don't support or collect 3P stuff, but even I would appreciate weapon packs. Voyager Prime without a gun seems incomplete.

    Yeah, that just isn't good. Looks downright bad, really. Nice details, but that storage is horrible.

    I always feel like some of these accessory packs go one or two things too far. SS just needs his gun, his saw, and maybe the jets, but could live without. The pack pieces are totally unnecessary.

    Finally got this guy. He’s sweet! I’m definitely glad I sold off my leader and deluxe starscreams. I still wish he had ankle articulation, but it’s a sweet-ass toy. And he can look up!!!

    Still love this toy, weeks later. Just keep transforming him and Prime back and forth. Easily the best jet mode of them all.

    I finally broke down and picked this guy up, AND he's missing the piece on the back that covers up his head in jet mode. I have NEVER in all my years of Transformers collecting purchased a figure missing a piece! WTF Hasbro. I guess I'll be taking him back to the store this afternoon. :(
