    Why the hate?

    I can understand if it's the pricing.

    The lore on this version of Starscream is still my favorite.

    The scale reflects the epicness of his tale also. Starscream fueled by the pure power of Primus? Sign me up!

    I'm just glad I have a decent Vector Prime to scale with his tale.

    For me the regret is threefold.

    1. The price
    2. The absurd size which doesn't actually fit anywhere in my collection, much less on the Starscream shelves
    3. The paint quality, with the red paint that comes off the leg at the first transformation

    My reason for not caring for this thing is that I already have the original release of the mold, and it cost me 1/4 of what the Platinum reissue is going for at retail.

    I don't have a problem with the absurd size.

    pretty much just the price, i know most of the cost goes to just the plastic for being so big and heavy, but for $100+ people expect leader to masterpiece level of engineering, not something that's literally identical to the legend size counterpart. what's more annoying is the fact this guy was shelfwarming at $30 years back, and now they're trying to sell it for $100 just for the new paint job.
