    Im starting to worry about it. No names have been shown in data. Not that they won’t come but I’m wondering if they’re gonna wait and do them for part 3.

    the cone heads talk has only come out of the boards as “well they need to make them” and I think it just grew m from there as “were expecting them” not unlike how we all thought they’d do them in siege

    My head-canon for Earthrise Starscream will be "Classics Reboot Starscream". :p

    I wish they woulda kept his charcoal-colored face from the cartoon. It’s his one characteristic that sets his head apart from the other seekers, but most G1 SS figures seem to omit it.

    I do like that dark grey face but hey, at least his body grey is grey not that white they were using for him like they used to like the universe and first hasbro MP Starscream. It wasn’t awful but wasn’t great

    There really doesn't look like any reason for this figure to cost $30. Overall this Starscream doesn't look any more complicated than a deluxe figure, and is probably not much bigger than Siege Ironhide. There isn't a lot of paint and the null rays are very cheap and hollow. Maybe the wrists swivel, but it doesn't look like it. The Decepticon emblems on the wings also look too small and are very poor quality.

    Still, it is a G1 style update that looks like a mini-masterpiece figure. Earthrise looks like the true G1 redux.

    That's actually a really good point. It's also why I'm shocked it never got retooled because they could swap out the shell with literally *any* jet and have a brand new figure.

    The TCG basically created a retool for the mold with Needlenose. I would love to see that get realized in plastic.

    Only complaints I got with this new Starscream is that they've already gone through the possible repaints already, and he doesn't have the spring-loaded missiles of the Classics... Last one's more of a "aw... I miss that." more than anything.

    Dammit, starting to get that temptation tingle...was going to pass and stick to Siege, but looking at the comparison, there are some improvements I am digging...hmmm.

    It's got better range of motion for the hips and ankles for sure. I wish it had the null rays on the bicep swivel just like MP-03/MP-11, much easier for aiming poses

    Nope, not a fan of this Starscream figure.

    That being said, I'll probably pick it up on clearance, but I'm definitely going to pick up the inevitable Coneheads.

    are there any in hand photos next to siege seekers? wondering how tall this one stands. i know it's voyager but heights are a little all over the place in wfc. not a bad thing just curious.

    i checked back the last two pages and i'm not about to go through 200 pages to look

    Eh, I do wish he has waist swivel, but other than that I'm good with this design. I prefer Siege Screamer, but it would be nice to have an good F-15 one that scales with my Siege collection.

    considering they are trying to maintain a sense of scale i would expect the new starscream to be right about the same size as siege starscream
