    Next up, we share with you another gallery from the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3. Here comes a Decepticon whose record for treachery and deceit is legend. Yes, tonight we share with you this gallery of Fall of Cybertron Starscream!

    Fall of Cybertron Starscream is, in this fan's eyes, level with Kickback for the best toy in the new assortment. His jet mode is suitably alien with a few nods to the various different interpretations of the design over the years. Robot mode is very good on the articulation with lots of movement in the arms and legs, nice big feet with sideways swivels to help with balance, but unfortunately as is par for the course now no waist swivel. The head, while capable of looking left and right, soon gets its vision interrupted by the shoulders, and the main torso is basically hollow from the way it forms from the jet mode. In my mind these are minor issues in what is one of the most fun little toys to come along in a while - Starscream looks great, holds poses well, and has a transformation which is a good balance between complex and intuitive. His weapon is cool as well, with a couple of display options which I have tried to capture in the gallery.

    Check out the gallery by opening the link below. We've got some nice cool pictures for you to check out, showcasing robot and jet mode, comparisons with the War Within (Titanium), Galaxy Force and ShopTo.net exclusive Legends Class War for Cybertron Starscream. There's also some pictures included in the gallery showing how Starscream looks wielding the Renderform Banshee Blade and wearing the third party Classics Starscream coronation gear - yes, it fits on this toy as well, not perfectly but good enough.

    This is one of the figures i am most anticipating out of the line.

    It's almost like a Classics Cybertron Starscream. :p

    This is the main reason I want to get this figure. I need to complete the Decepticon trio.

    It is the best FOC toy as far as I am concerned, I just can't stop fiddling with him, something I haven't done with a modern figure since the original classics line.

    Why are people so bothered about waist rotation? For me, I think so long as it has knees, elbows, upper thigh and upper arm swivels and at least the ability to rotate the head, it's a good figure.

    the only things wrong with FOC Starscream are his visible head in vehicle mode which makes for a great gerhead and that his chest flaps could fold down further. That's it for detractors for me.

    Bruticus is a bit awkward for me to do since he barely fits in my light box, never mind fitting anyone in there with him. But I'll add it to the to-do list for the holiday break.

    I MUST KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GETTING THESE!
    I can't tell if they're out in stores, or just online. >.<

    Anyway, I LOVE this guy. I just wish his arms were a bit beefier. And that his wings folded straight backwards like in-game. Do they?! *hunts through gallery*

    I'm getting them online, to the best of my knowledge they are not out in brick & mortar stores though they're now in at BBTS, TFSource et al, so hopefully they'll pop up any day now.

    The wings don't go back any further, unfortunately. They're pretty much stuck in that position, they have a little give backwards to clear the arms but that's all really. It might be possible to mod it or something.

    Thanks :) 

    The coronation gear is from a few years ago, it was a third party item I got from TFSource at one of the Botcons. This one - Henkei Classics - Starscream - Crown, Cape, Shoulder Armor & Cannon Custom Upgrade Kit

    It isn't a perfect fit but it goes on well enough for the look.

    I'll definitely be picking this bad boy up whenever I see him. Hopefully many of them will eventually make their way to discount stores because I might consider buying multiples of these. Why?

    Because the FOC version would be an excellent contender. :D

    Awesome review. That said, something about the overall proportions of this figure look goofy to me.
