Know what's funny? I remember playing that Bayverse Transformers game on my old PS2, and they had a G1 skin for Starscream. I thought he looked really good in those colors and wished they made an awesome toy of him in those colors someday.

Yet now...he looks awful.

I'm not sure if it's an exact color-scheme from the game, though.

In any case, couldn't they have given him a different head like they did for the G1 retool of the 2007 voyager toy?

Yeah, that was the main reason why I got that one. I love it's goblinish head and that make it different enough from the original to buy again.

As for that G1 color Leader Starscream... Well, I am a fan and the Screamers are an important part of my collection. Still, on second thought, the new repaint is not different enough to buy again. Not for 100$ total anyway. (price + shipping)

Still, I'd like to have a RotF/DotM repaint of Masterpiece Starscream. His head could be different. Kinda like a blend between classic and movie. His null rays should be replaced by massive machine guns.
Yeah, THAT, I'd buy.

The head-thing was done with the 2007 toys. Thundercracker and Skywarp had those GEEWUN-moviestyle mixups. Worked very well, IMO.

That red Ironhide repaint looks awesome. The Starscream looks like a weird acid trip.

I wonder how that might turn out, considering how different the two designs are.

That said, it might actually work out if they didn't try to Frankenstein Bayverse SS's ape-bird design and G1 SS's slim form. Instead they should try using Bayverse-style complexity, but preserve the humanoid form of G1.

I prefer Movie Starscream actual head.
