Is it me or is Starscream boss now?

Right, well.

You've seen that Battle..Rig.. Blaster thing of Prime's, right? The toy gun roleplay thing? Well rather than have something like Megatron's canon, we have Starscream's blaster (or something, either way its Starscreams).

The game boasts about flying around as Starscream!.. not Megatron.

In the script, Starscream does a lot more than Megatron (granted Megatron's incapacitated, but thats my point).

And I'm sure there's more reasons... Am I right? Why is this?

i dont know what your trying to say. the game? what game?








SPOILERS BELOW!!!!!!!





but as for the script having starscream do a lot more work than megatron: barricade and blackout do ever more work than him, and arguably frenzy does the most important of all the work. Megatron, starscream, and bone crusher dont even show up until barricade signals to them to come out of hiding.....





END SPOILERS!!!!

Ah I guess you're right there..

I guess it's because he's leading the earth party.. isn't he? I forget...

But then still, why all the hype about Starscream? He is actually in the script a lot less than most other characters, so why do the game and the toys make such a deal? And back to my first question, where's Megatron's publicity? I think we've seen one toy and thats been it.

well starscream is the second in command, it would make sense for him to lead the attack on the damn to try and free megatron. Starscream is also a very popular, if not thee most popular transformer, so thats why theres so much hype about him. Turning him into an ogresque gorilla for the movie has also raised that hype up some as well

1. it states on the back of starscream's packaging (is it on hi s protoform one?) that he is leading the search for the allspark while megatron is missing.

2. the game - hes talking about the transformers the movie video game, which there has been lots of info released about over the last few days. it's pretty much in the same style as most movie tie-ins these days, such as hulk, superman etc.. ie. roughly GTA themed.

it does include air to air combat with starscream, however it also does with megatron too.

"Starscream" is the Decepticon market coverboy because Bay and Hasbro know that they can't sell any useless crap with "Megatron"'s ugly mug all over it.

You would be right, if you weren't completely wrong.

Movie Megatron looks like awesome fused with kickass.

When was the last time you got your eyes checked?

Movie "Megatron" is the ultimate fusion of "suck" and "ass". Fangs, metal shavings, a vampire, and tentacle "jazz hands" definatly says Megatron to me. 8-|

Nope, Megatron actually looks really good. Especially when compared to Starscream.

when will you fans get over the fact that the "bayformers" really arent that bad at all. no one is going to see you as "less of a fan" when you come outa nd admit you like the designs

I think they are both equally horrifying. When I first saw Megatron, I threw up. I hope you like that thing in the movie when he chases after "Sam" who has the allspark yelling " Mine! Mine!(He does)".

Buddy, calm down. it was an opinion. I personally don't like the designs although the new ones look better. Not everyone shares the same views as you.

Okay, cut it out. I'm not scared of him anymore. That was ten years ago. The thought of Don Murphy in a thong is the only thing that scares me now. :P
