In case you were wondering about the differences in Megatron and Starscream from the recently released EZ-SP02 set and their standard EZ counterparts Takara Tomy have tweeted an image showing the four figures side by side. The EZ-SP02 Decepticon set also features a purple Vehicon, Terrorcon Cliffjumper, and Knock Out. Take a look at the comparison image mirrored below.

Why is Starscream blue? Is it just the lighting, or is he 'sposed to be Thundercracker?

That's one of the reason I dont collect Thundercracker. So many times, it's just Blue Screamers.

That's like saying you don't collect Skywarp because he's a black Starscream. ;) Aren't they all a repaint of Screamer in some way,shape or form? :lol:

There have been exceptions:

- Universe 2003 Skywarp, repaint of BM Jetstorm
- Cybertron Thundercracker, his own mold. He did get repainted into a Skywarp however.
- Titanium 6 inch Thundercracker, who was repainted into Starscream, the reverse of the norm.

Interesting :-? Screamer being one of my favourites, I would've thought the others would be based on him. There you go!

Well, the true reasons behind collecting very, very few Starscream repaints is because:

1) Starscream is awesome and is a key character.

2) Money. So many TF to buy. I will not buy the very same molds in double, triple, on infiniple because there's too much other TFs to buy...

3)...and even if I would have more money, I'll need more space to display them all. I'm already running out of space with just Starscream, Optimus Prime, and all the rest.
