    Looks amazing but if it's still a BAF then I'll never own it.

    Also, is that the Nazi iron cross or is that something else? Cause if he's literally a Nazi then I don't want it.

    Those are axis symbols for the axis of evil (Germany,Japan,Italy) which is very fitting for Starscream

    Its how the German and Austro-Hungarians identified their planes during WWI similar to the circle the British RAF used or the star that the US uses, so not Nazi related at all.

    That painted sample is really nice, but there's no way I will pay $350 for him, even if that includes five other figures.

    And it looks like trying to buy the BAF parts from people who don't want them will easily cost $150, if not a lot more. (Someone posted an estimate of $80, but once you figure shipping from up to five different sellers, plus profit from selling, there's no way anyone will get the BAF parts from one of the five figures for only $16.)

    Sorry, Toyworld. Rather than gain one sale, you chose to lose five.

    You seem to have not factored in that plenty of people who buy things that have baf’s sell them off as 1 built figure, so yeah it probably wouldn’t be that much. I mean, if you look up marvel legends you’ll see a ton of built bafs on sale. Starscream will be fairly priced , especially on the boards cause we got fair pricing in here.

    Really excited for this. Regardless of how I feel about some of the movies, the design and engineering is just outstanding. I wonder if they are still doing it as a BAF, given the packaged photos of bulldog don't seem to have a place for a part and it would severely delay release

    Wow that's quite a good looking figure. They even got the castor oil streaks all over the darned thing.

    Really like the look of this even tho im not really keen on these type of figures. If i were to buy something like this id need some 1 to OKSO it coz its way too small for my stuff. BC optimus height would be nice.

    This is WWI there were no NAZIs. At least not in control of the government.

    In the service of Kaiser Wilhelm II.

    P.S Thrust (or ROTF Divebomb) will be the Red Baron?

    I still don’t see how he’d be a build a figure. I’m glad he isn’t at least.

    Wow, nobody has gotten the insignia explanation right yet---it's not Nazi, nor is it WWI Central nor WWII Axis powers---it's a basic German Iron cross----it is still used to this day and has no association with any particular time period or group, other than "German military":

    lmfao you'd think being a goddamn triplane would be enough to signify that it's not even a WWII plane but apparently not. :redface2:
