Horrible on every level.
QFT! I had the exact same reaction...which was
. What were they thinking? I don't think these colors will appeal to any kids and few collectors.
I've posted on other threads about this figure and how much I dislike the colors. However, after seeing this review and how he transforms I really dislike this figure. He's too small, the colors are terrible and finally the transformation is horrible. All he does is fold in half and they in no way made his arms or legs part of the jet's fuselage. The weapon is ok, but how it attaches in alt mode is pitiful. I realize that a lot of other TFP jet's have obvious robot syndrome from below but this is just plain lazy. All of the engineering here is lazy, uninspired and boring. It's like there were just trying to fill a spot or something. Ugh.
I'm usually much more positive and try to see the good in a figure (even if I don't plan on getting it) but this doesn't deserve to be called Starscream. I truly hope he doesn't get this treatment on the show.
The only good thing is that I can save my money by not getting him. For the two people out there that like this guy, I would wait until he goes on clearance (which he will) before picking him up because most people seem to dislike him as much as I do.
