    why do you have a problem if he prefers an actual official representation of a character over an unlicensed 3p version?

    I mean, it says Starscream on the Earthrise's box... not much room for pretend.

    One is actually Starscream, made by the company that legally owns Starscream, one is not Starscream, made by a company that doesn't own it and just made it look like Starscream.

    And how much does the legends figure cost? And how much would it cost if you included the licenses, safety testing and certificates and used a voyager figures amount of plastic? I’m not keen on the screamer myself, but that’s because of the lack of waist, not the reused engineering

    I feel like you missed the conversation from before as to why comparing NewAge's work to Hasbro's are apples to oranges.

    Yeah that’s easy to say when you’re continuously comparing it to a 3rd party figure that had no budget in its design and only had a price after they made it. It’s a voyager class figure that has to meet its budget for its price point which means it has constraints

    no, it is less noticeable because it is less noticeable. it sits much lower than it did on the classics deluxe

    Isn't that kinda of the point though. They've found so many ways to make things work in Siege that you give them some goodwill when they have to give them some space to make a compromise when this happens.

    Like, look at what they did giving Jetfire a fake nosecone on his crotch so he could have waist swivel but still be G1 accurate. It's not that they didn't care with Starscream...it's that of all the things they wanted to do, that's one step too far for the budget.

    jokes don't translate well in text without something to indicate it's a joke. there are so many people on these boards that crap on everything official that your post kinda just comes across as another one of those

    hmmm. wish the plastic was a bit more slivery/cool grey, wish the nosecone folded down into the back more and wish the skirt had individual pieces for each leg, Wish the wings weren't hollow and ugly from the underside/back, wish the null rays weren't hollow - and if they had to be hollow, wish the hollow side wasn't up in Jet mode (that is super tacky), and while it's nice that they toned back the overdone greebles from the complete mess that was the Siege Seeker mold, i'd still tone it back maybe 25% more, BUT all those nits picked, this is still the Starscream i've been waiting for since 1984. Will be buying them for the 3rd CHUG time (Classics Deluxe/CW Leader/Earthrise Voyager) - Sadly, their is probably no way in modern day Thundercracker will have as nice paint and plastic as the Generations deluxe did (that figure had just completely gorgeous colors)

    I feel like when I see Earthrise Screamer, he (to me personally) at least looks like he has some more articulation than the MP-11, and he overall looks still like Classics Starscream. As for the waist Articulation, I feel there could be a way around the need to sacrifice waist rotation for the transformation.

    And with the amount of attention articulation we got with siege, if they said they weren’t able to do it than I’m gonna take their word they couldn’t. People keep acting like John Warden is twirling his mustache laughing at us because a figure doesn’t have a waist where in reality he’s making it harder and harder to stop collecting lol

    but the Seige seeker mold could completely cheat and have as much articulation as they wanted since the ENTIRE ROBOT MODE hangs off the bottom of the alt mode. They are literrally 2 completely unrelated halves.

    Loving this Starscream more and more with each new set of photos that come out. All I want after this is a Selects G2 slight repaint, because anything G2 brings good feelings to my heart :bay

    i meant that they didn't have to worry about any design compromises necessary for the robot mode to transform to alt mode, because it basically doesn't.
    Earthrise SS has to transform into an F-15, Siege SS barely transforms into a box hanging underneath his alt mode.
