Yeah I can say I like the Hasbro Version better than takara's. Yes the paint job on Takara's better, but it dosen't look like skywarp, just a generic. The hasbro one, despite the dull gray plastic, it at least looks like skywarp.

Though my favorite Skywarp is still the original Universe one :lol:

The original Armada Starscream was incredibly simple but still an amazing figure.

They are similar, but you really don't have a problem with the new Screamer being smaller than the FOC deluxe?

Nice one, Hasbro. Couldn't bother to actually give names to the individual "Mini-Con Assault Team" members, eh? :roll:

I'm genuinely surprised that they're calling him "Armada Starscream" instead of just "Starscream". I get that it might be to differentiate it from the last "Starscream" toy, but still. I'm now very curious as to what type of bio he might have, but I think it's safe to guess that it might be like Waspinator's in being an ambiguously-written bio that fits both his Armada self and that of IDW G1 Starscream as he currently is.

Fear not, my friend, for that rotor is mistransformed in these pics. It's supposed to fold in to make horizontal horns instead. ;)

I never said anything about the size, just the simplicity.

Hasbro scaling down TF's is out of my control. What can I do about it? I have much more important issues in life to deal with really. (That's not a jab at anyone either, just my stance on the matter)

I just noticed Scoop needs to hide his head better. @xyl360, some of us prefer Skywarp's original color scheme of black and purple, not overly applied metallic purple and gunmetal.

Now, bring on those mini-cons!

Those Mini-Cons will look great with PCC Bombshock, methinks. And they'd be perfect rivals for Prime Abominus.

Also Scoop and the Minicons look pretty cool, Armada Starscream...meh....I absolutely loathed Armada after the first episode.

What about the Armada comics? Those were infinitely better than the cartoon.

And, this Starscream isn't exactly the Armada character, rather, it's the IDW G1 Starscream having been given a new body upgrade to go with his new position as the leader of all of Cybertron. ;)

No one said you have to "deal with it" as in come up with a solution, but a defeatist attitude doesn't do anything, either (arguably less).

How is it a defeatist attitude? It's more prioritizing. I just have much better things to expend my time and energy on than getting upset over the size of a toy.

Eventually I will purchase all of IDW. Though I still haven't fully recovered from the DW 2006 cliff hanger...

This is the first time I'm noticing the kibble between the legs of the two Targetmasters. Can't say I'm a fan of it.

I'm very surprised by Starscream's official designation of 'Armada' Starscream, and wonder if they'll be explaining that one in the fiction.

I'll probably be quite happy getting all four moulds. As always the only question will be Hasbro or Takara?

I'm not terribly upset. I'm not home throwing a temper tantrum. But I can be somewhat annoyed and air that grievance.

I have to say, while I'm not going to be getting Scoop due to the number of other incoming Generations figures I would prefer, they did seem to do a pretty solid job with him.

Also, I do hope that they give the Mini-cons individual names.

It's just a suffix like "Freeway Jazz", "Stealth Bumblebee", "Recon Barricade", etc. to differentiate this toy from the previous Generations "Starscream" toy. It also just happens to be a double-pun that calls back to the toyline of this toy's inspiration.
