Looking at the pic again. just noticed that the starscream shown looks like he's proportional to the alts like the old g1 seekers and the g1 cars

Personally I like the idea of him being smaller than Prime. Any idea on what the scale ratio is though? Thats the part thats going to annoy me. Prime's already out of sink with alternators ratio wize. Would have been nice to keep starscream in sink with something.

You can sort of eyeball his size by judging from the size of the screws in his legs and canopy!

so is anyone else blown away by the moving nuckle mid finger! HasTak is finally catching up on their hands. I mean with the price of Masterpiece figs they should be able to make decent hands.

Blasphemy!!!!

I have half a mind to go up to Canada and pistol whip you with Nerf Megatron!




j/k :D

What don't you like about it? The only thing I wish they would change is the feet. The ones on Classics Starscream are better IMO.

I don't mean to cause a riot, I just think there are some strange parts like the fitup of the shoulders and the canopy sits a little too deep in the chest and the fingers have an almost afterthought look to them. It could be that it is just a bad pic\angle but I will wait and see the final outcome. Once again, Please don't riot or nerf whip me!!!!

Nerf whip?

Is that what they'd call being bludgeoned with Classics Megatron's alt mode?

I thought pistol whipping was just a crack over the head and not necessarily bludgeoning to death?? Although I suppose it is Megatron so a bludgeoning would probably be the most likely outcome.

Hehe, Nerf Megatron *wipes tear from eye*

Yeah. Classics Screamer looks better than that. Classic's Starscream also has a more F-14 like canopy.

crap. Wonder how much work it will take to reverse engineer those legs. Yea, I'll still get it. and its still 20X better than the classic overweight **** they're making. not too sure on the new nosecone either. better, but less starscream. Actually I want both versions, the first one for starscream, the second for skywarp. Then I'd be happiest.

I sure as hell want to see the final version of this...though i wouldve liked it if they just kept him as the first proto looked more show accurate now he looks like something from Gundam Seed *shudders* I'll still buy him though...

I still find the addition of the conformal fuel tanks to be odd. My understanding is those aren't seen much outside of the two seat F-15E. That waist kibble really should be mounted on the sides of the legs, on a sliding joint.

The waist kibble just looks bad. And, I don't mean bad as in "it's not G1" I mean bad as in "looks goofy, in any context."

Why the hell do the knees bend backwards? :?
