    HA! That was pretty cool. It's nice seeing the "bad guys" win every so often.

    Somebody loves Starscream. Can't blame them, seeing him actually winning for once kinda rules.

    Anyways, very well done video, gotta love the amount of work it took to bring this to life.

    And before anyone complains that Studio Series Optimus Prime is on the character select screen, remember that fighting games have had hidden, wacky bonus characters for decades now. And nowadays they have guest characters galore.

    Oh thank God! The whole time I was thinking the Autobots are gonna pull something out of their ass at the last minute just so the good guys can win. Again! But they totally surprised me by making Starscream kick ass with little effort.

    That's how it should've been in the Bumblebee movie. Blitzwing was twice his size & should have easily killed Bumblebee.

    Size does matter. This is why I always thought voyager scaled seekers was just wrong.

    Wow... Starscream really took them to school. It wasn't even close!

    I like to see Starscream get some credit for being competent and dangerous for a change... though I would think that a Sideswipe and Prowl double-team would be up to the challenge... or at least not to go out like total punks. :lol 

    Um, you mean so... so... right? :wink: 

    In 1984, the Autobots enjoyed an almost 2-to-1 ratio against the Decepticons. The Seekers are supposed to be big and fearsome. Deluxe-sized Seekers always look wrong next to Deluxe Autobot cars.

    the gritty detailing and the fact that he's actually competent means this is obviously marvel starscream.

    That Shockwave vs UM video was crap IMO!
    And to be fair, back in the G1 cartoon days the Autobots outnumbered the Con's each episode like 2 to 1 and still struggled to win.

    So Starscream finally getting his due in battle for a change is great.

    Unlikely. These and probably more episodes were all made in advance. This stuff takes a long time to do.

    Well TBH, Starscream IS much larger, faster, and stronger than either. Amazing to see him get credit for a win once in a while!

    okay this video is how i felt it was in the g1 cartoon, there was huge numbers diffrence between the autobots and decepticons and i always presumed that the reason why the decepticons won the first war was because one bot like starscream is worth 3 to 4 bots like prowl and sideswipe let alone the minibots, it would make sense as well since the decepticons where designed to be milatery hardware minded, hense when you get bots like ultramagnus and starsaber who are also milatery minded they can hold there own against bots like cyclonus or starscream, even optimusprime was designed to battle head to head, so if you put all that into consideration the bots like prowl BB sideswipe cliffjumper seaspray sunstreaker and so on the reason it takes more of them to fight a bot like screamer is because they where not built for war like the decepticons.

    and i only ever felt like the reason why the autobots one is because they had to win it was a 80s cartoon if the good guy lost it was a problem look what happend with the movie

    I mean... not according to their Tech Specs, at least (allowing that Starscream's graph clearly got mixed up with Skywarp's). Prowl is actually a pretty close match for Starscream (fitting since they are both second-in-commands). But I agree that Starscream deserves to be treated as a serious contender, not a joke. :)
