    Accurate to the comics as much as the mold will allow.

    Probably Botcon, or TFCC Subscription Service. Unless they do a G2-themed exclusive, I can't see them doing G2 Straxus for SDCC, though of course, stranger things have happened.

    Probably Takara. They went through the trouble of making Straxus more comic-accurate, after all.

    Takara, definitely. I'm sure Funpub will eventually do it if Takara doesn't, but I'm fully expecting Japanese retail.

    This.

    Although given that the toy is more or less Jhiaxus cosplaying Starscream (to quote the comic), I don't know how much a "proper" deco would do for it.

    I'd like to see Cybertron Starscream repainted as Jhiaxus. It's closer to his G1/Regeneration incarnation.

    IDW really ruined his character when they made him a snivelling scientist.

    I'm going with Takara, but as an exclusive like that Foc Grimlock Repaint. :shrug

    I'm leaning toward Takara
