Ditto, looks like the best Starscream yet.
Functionally the Classics had it but it didn't stick out at the bottom. The EarthRise one looks like the DX9 Legends scale Starscream in that respect. However, the EarthRise one, I think has that thing sticking out as a compromise for robot mode. In robot mode, I don't think the nose of the jet, turns with the head, unlike the Classics one.
I'm planning to get the EarthRise one but am itching to see just how much articulation it has. For SIEGE Starscream, its full articulation wasn't really shown until Takara showed their resin prototypes. Hasbro's EarthRise Starscream sample has been in pretty static poses.
Re: ER Starscream and perceived shortcomings others have mentioned (not saying this to bash the figure at all, I actually like it, just for conversational purposes, but) ...
Yeah, and according to TFWiki (take with a grain of salt as it lacks references/sources for this claim) this Starscream is devoid of waist articulation.
I can't confirm that independently, but everything I've seen so far leads me to believe it's true. I don't see any waist articulation on him.
I'm also never a fan of the recessed cockpit look for Starscream bot modes, personally. Consequently, Starscream (due to the above) and Cliffjumper (just due to the lack of chest spoiler and a general lack of evoking G1 for me personally) are my least favorite molds revealed so far for this line, but I still like them both a lot as figures. And I love CJ's transformation, in fact.
Warden confirmed it in an interview somewhere.
Hey, if you guys are complaining that much, don't get Starscream. Get the Siege one. There's only two reasons why you are complaining.
1) You don't have anything else to complain about because stuff is really good.
2) You actually like Starscream and you are complaining to talk about it.
*prob gonna take heat for this.
QFT....no heat from me.
I have been following this thread for a while now, and it just seems to devolve. I don't get it. Everybody has an opinion but is the digression and complaining gonna help their situation...no it is not. I keep quiet on the forums alot but after reading through these threads where the complaining becomes rampant I now feel a need to chime in. These are toys after-all, and this is a toyline we (adult collectors that grew up with Transformers) should be thankful did not permanently die out in the early 90's. It really boils down to,"If you don't like it, don't get it".
Personally this is the Screamer I have been waiting for, and I may actually replace my 2009 generations one with it, and the rest of the seekers if they remake them in a more upscale version like ER Starscream.
I will go back to being quiet now.
Dude same, like, I know this Starscream isn't "perfect" but I still can't wait to have him.
I even went ahead and made some digibashes of the other two Seekers to see how they'd look.
if it had a waist, itd be perfect, but theyve confirmed it doesnt. if i see one cheap i might still get one just to give it a go
I wanted null rays mounted to the bicep swivel just like the MP's as well, sad it got mounted higher up.
Speaking for myself... Discussion, observation, & rational critique =/= complaining. Especially not when you conclude with, "But I still like them both a lot as figures."
I’m hoping we get a TC repaint of this Starscream. Whatever anyone else thinks of the mold, I like it but I don’t need another Starscream... Thundercracker though, I can’t get enough of him.
Yeah I love this starscream myself. I don't give a crap about articulation much. I so hope we get the original 6 seekers out of the mold.
It's funny you think there's only two repaints to make from that mold.
I think it’s the legs that put me off, They just look off IMO. Other than that it looks pretty decent
Maybe that's the two he cares about the most or that's all he had time to do.
Apologies for late reply, I've been consumed with the new store we're about to launch......we're only 2 month behind schedule
No idea about EAN, they're not part of anything that we get. Honestly, UPC's aren't even that important really as we order via item codes. I can't speak for other retailers, but Hasbro gave us the full 2020 line plan with UPC's about 2 weeks ago. The national retailers always get info way earlier than us, so if it hasn't already, I would expect Brickseek leaks to begin soon.
Do you feel more excited for the 2020 EarthRise line than you did for SIEGE?
Yeah I think so, I'm definitely excited for the high dollar pieces. I like the fan channel stuff as well. I hope folks continue to support the Selects. I wish Hasbro would do an ecom only line like this for Marvel, SW, and Joe.
Any new versions of characters we saw in SIEGE that you're particularly excited for?
The most important thing for me with a new Earth Seeker mold is a chest transformation that doesn't cheat. I can accept the lack of waist joint and the boxiness to get that.
