Somehow, she looks even more masculin than Starscream ... 8-}

Yea, that photoshoped head would be much better, but it would also need a new chestpiece to look more boobish, SS is just to flat.
It's kinda sad, but also hilarious how most heads by them look horrible, especially this, Counterpunch and Nightbeat.

I'll save my criticism on the head sculpt for when I get it in hand. Pictures don't do all figures justice. It may not be as bad as it looks. But even if it looks the same, I still think she looks pretty good.

OOHH my poor friend in denial.
j/k :P You are very right about pictures not doing figures justice though. Best of luck with your buyer's satisfaction.

Well I've already got 5 versions of this mould, I might as well make it 6!

I would love for a 3rd party to redo the head-sculpt, here's hoping :)

Also from the HK-TF forum was have some additional in-hand images of the TFSS figure Slipstream, a retool/redeco of Transformers Prime First Edition Starscream. The figure should ship out from TFCC at some point between now and the end of the year. For now enjoy the images mirrored below.

I see what they're trying to do, but this mold just strikes me as still being too masculine for a Slipstream.

They had the perfect mold.

And then someone passed that head sculpt. WHO thought that was a good idea!

Also, it just occured to me that Slipstream has DUCK LIPS. WHY? :BANG_HEAD:

IMHO I don't think this head sculpt is all that bad really but to each their own. If the people at Dr.Wu are seeing all this maybe they'll deliver us a more accurate Slipstream head sculpt. After all they did one for Optimus. :VEHI:

here let me lay down this beat, see if you pick it up. While it's debatable as to whether or not TFP character models have noses, a majority of them don't. (the majority of autobots come to mind). Those that have "noses" are dubious at best because they can look like part of the brow, or are barely noticeable. Slipstream is one of the latter, her "nose" look more like it's part of the bridge and mostly her brow.

These pics are better than the ones from the other day. Her face actually looks quite a bit like Arcee's I think. And I believe Arcee has even made that duck lip expression from time to time. Definitely fits in with the Prime line very well.

Best figure for this mold. EVER! This mold(and it's voyager counterpart) has always been fembot material, so Slipstream is the perfect character for it.

Nothing wrong w/ her face as far as I can tell.

BTW, no, she has no nose and she does NOT have duck lips, RAcast.

It's deceptively less bad from angled shots (which most of these are), but find a shot of the face straight-on. It's horrifyingly bad with her mouth-half-open-duck-lips. I honestly don't know why they didn't just go with a regular smirk, as it would have look so much better.

I like her, but I wish they had used the Voyager mold. With the exception of Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia (and the repaint into Arcee) I can't think of a single female Transformer bigger than a Deluxe.
