FOC Starscream or Generations Deluxe Starscream

Postby Bozziusmaximus » Sun Jan 06, 2013 3:06 pm

As a fan of the Fall of Cybertron game and series, I like the FOC version, but in your opinion, which do you guys and/or gals prefer? I do not own the previous version so I cannot say for sure but judging by pictures my vote goes to the newer version, big guns, cybertronian jet mode, and such. Now if they would release some retooled versions of this mold into thundercracker and skywarp.

Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're asking, aren't FOC and Generations Starscream one in the same?

I'd say go with what fits in your collection needs. I have only a few FOC characters and FOC Starscream doesn't interest me. I do own the other Classics one however as that is one of 2 groups I collect. However if it interests you....then perhaps get both?
New pics added as I find time.

Classics g1. There's something about the foc mold that looks abit derpy in plane mode.

G1 on the other hand, is a great figure in both modes. Get the universe 2.0 version if u can.

I can't STAND the Classics mold. In jet mode, it's really quite nice, but the robot mode is frustrating to pose. Now, I have the Classics (2006) version, not the much improved Universe 2.0 (2008) version, so the eyes are all but invisible from any angle but straight on.

But coming back to my main frustration...it's painful to pose it; it just wont' stand up, the jet thruster heels are awful! For those of you who don't own the mold, they're rounded, like the MP version. Unlike the MP version, they aren't on a ball joint and therefore can't be swiveled to compensate for any leg position other than standing straight. Plus they have ratchet-y movement...at 45 degree intervals... I'm looking forward to picking up FoC Starscream to replace the one sitting on my shelf.

I think I'll start with the foc one, as I'll probably find it cheaper at the moment anyways. Maybe even at retail, but later I'll up to the Generations 2.0 version. I have the Galvatron figure form the same series and to me it matches the FOC stuff extremely well, in robot mode anyways.

i think the game model of starscream looked derpy in the game and since they did a good job of making it look like the game model its looks kinda derpy.

The Classics mold is overrated, but it still pisses all over the hollow, half-assed FOC mold.

I own them both, and like them equally. But the FOC one is probably easier to get.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Classics Starscream for me every time, maybe it's because it's the first Classics figure I bought and therefore reignited my collecting spirit, but I really do love the mould, so much so that I bought his two brothers, breaking my no repeat moulds rule of collecting.
