We now have official images of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2's Starscream! Check out the brand new mold below.

The scheming Decepticon second-in-command Starscream looks forward to the day both the Autobots and Megatron are out of his way!

Autobots beware, because this Starscream figure is just the Decepticon to take any of them on! He’s a super-sneaky operator who wants all the power for himself, and his clenching Thunder Talon gives him the edge he needs in battle! When he needs to do recon or make a speedy escape, convert him to fighter jet mode. Keep converting him back and forth so his Autobot enemies can’t keep up!

Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

[PRODUCT FEATURES]
• Powerful Starscream robot-to-vehicle warrior figure!
• Converts from robot to fighter jet mode and back!
• Clenching Thunder Talon!

Wow, that is just about as fugly as a figure can get. :SICK: So glad I got a FE Starscream.

And what is up with the alt mode? I see the shoulders sticking out in the front, and the feet sticking out in the back. Why didn't they just use the FE mold?

Well done, Hasbro. :APPLAUSE: (sarcastic clap)

WOW.

The robot mode looks ok, but that is the single crappiest jet mode I have ever seen. Cybertron Voyager Starscream, you are no longer the record holder.

I don't want to end up sounding like a glitched voice box, but another easy pass for me.

I'm guessing that you need to have that claw weapon attached in jet mode? As it looks like it forms the undercarriage of the jet. Just horrible in every way.

First time I've heard someone speak ill of that mold. :lol:

But yeah, possible mistransformations aside, this thing looks pretty bad, like most of the line so far. Easy pass. It would've turned out better had they based it on the FE mold. But kudos for doing something new.

He looks... okay. Not the normal "meh" that I normally use on figures I'm passing, but there's something about Starscream that I'm liking here. At least he wasn't the puke green we were first led to believe. :SICK:

If the "something new" is an awful paint job on a crappy re-mold of a figure that already had a good mold, they don't deserve any kudos at all.

Hmmm...I already have my voyager starscream. I think if this was repainted as someone else it would be killer. He's different enough from the FE and voyager so that he could pass for one of the other seekers (never did like how they were all identicle). Maybe a red and purple and black scheme would make a good terrorsaur. :-?

I've more or less liked most of the figures in BH so far, but this is just ugly as sin. I'll get him anyway because I've got the preorder for his wave in and the set of 4 is cheaper than getting the 3 individuals, but it's gonna have to really impress me in order for me to not sell it.

Seems I'm in the group that loves his bot mode. That jet mode is just laughable, and it even further makes me think he's based off Waspinator.

I'll be getting him, but he's never going in jet mode.

I have to agree. I have also really liked all of the BH figures so far minus this...thing and Soundwave. The colors are simply too horrendous. I think the biggest fault, color wise, is that brown...yuck! :SICK: It's the same nasty color as the doo doo brown on Soundwave. I really hope these guys don't look like this on the show.

I was going to get the set of 4 from BBTS to save the hassle of hunting them down individually, but I really don't want this guy. I could try to sell him but I don't think I'll be able to make my money back. Besides, at least here in GA the BH distribution has been amazingly consistent at the TRU's around me. I've seen all of wave 1 several times and at several locations.

This will be the first time I've ever posted this before...I'm passing on this one. I usually just keep that to myself and only comment when I like something, but this really doesn't work for me. I only hope the rest of the Decepticons get better paint jobs or I'll only be picking up the Predacons (assuming the same blunder doesn't befall them as well). :HEADHURTS: Very disapointing. #-o

i had high hopes for the figure but those dreams have been murdered by these pictures.
SHEESH, thats a terrible fig.

And why cant this be skywarp or even thundercracker? starscream changed his colors from the usual white blue and red, so why cant they?(it would be weird but not impossible.)

You can pretend he's whatever you want. The figure will always be Starscream. Also, we already have Prime Skywarp & Thundercracker.

Takara already gave us a Smokescreen as well and Hasbro one-upped them. People are allowed to hold out for a different kind of Skywarp or Thundercracker.

Seems like Hasbro isn't being very creative w/ the weapon names. Starscream is the 2nd Con to com w/ a Thunder Talon. The 1st being Soundwave. Different design, different function, so why not a different name?

It is a different name. The Thunder Talon was the working name for Soundwave's weapon, but in the end, it was the Talon Grapple Cannon.

Seeing as those pictures have him mistransformed I can see myself getting this figure and imagining him as an original Transformer. Just like with the Beast Hunters Bulkhead.

It's not awful because of the mold, necessarily. It might look okay in robot mode if it were properly transformed. It's the incredible clash and mix of colors that make it :SICK: worthy in my opinion. Brown/bronze, lavender, red, black, yellow..... just such an ugly clash of non-complementary colors.

I get that Hasbro is trying to appeal to the Playskool crowd with all the bright colors in this line, but these colors aren't even complementary. At least Ripclaw's red and green, Soundwave's blue and yellow, etc don't clash. They look silly in some instances (and so do all the spikes and such), but they mesh together. Starscream's colors just do not go together at all.

And that jet mode is absolutely horrible. Looks like a pile of flying parts that look NOTHING like Starscream's jet mode.

Well yeah, there are already 3 molds for this particular iteration of the character, but at least they put the effort into making a new mold instead of remolding an existing one.

I haven't collected any Prime toys, but the BH series reeks of the end of the line. The original TF G1, GI Joe, Ghostbusters, TMNT, you name it, starts off grounded and relatable but mutates and loses itself with out-there designs and "extreme" color schemes before dying off shortly after.

They have two more seasons and in honesty it is a fresh look at the predacons and we might get dinobots next season may have combines you never know

All we know is the third season; we don't know about the fourth season yet, considering Jeffrey Combs said season three was the end and then said there was a fourth season not long after. >:oP
