Can't say I like the white on Starscream.

Yeah, my fingers slipped.

Takara's Armada Starscream is well-done enough for me to warrant a preorder/order for him when I get the chance. Though he won't be busted out of his packaging, as I plan to make that version the display piece.

That Bludgeon remould looks good in the original Megatron colours in tank mode at least. I doubt I'll ever be able to get behind it in robot mode though.
Not sure I'm digging the white on Armada Starscream either. Kinda undermine's the whole Armada homage...... which I suppose may actually be a positive.

Featuring in this issue are the recently revealed Minicon team/Centuritron figures and Generations 'Armada' Starscream - who's sporting a slightly different deco from his Hasbro counterpart. The other bigger piece of news is a look at the Kabaya Gum DX Wave 2 set of Overlord and Road Caesar, including their Brain and Powermaster buddies. Also included are solicits for Transformers: Cloud, Go Prime and Masterpiece Bluestreak. Check out the mirrored images below.
That's not Bluestreak and Armada Starscream has a lot of differences between the Hasbro and TakaraTomy releases.
Armada Starscream appears to have a less orange tinted red, a black chin strap, a lighter gray / off-white instead of gray (like the original Micron fig), painted shoulder detailing (white & black), orange swords instead of amber, richer yellow detailing, different wing striping, red striping on the forearms, a black window instead of amber, different horizontal stabilizer detailing, white instead of red shoulder cannons, added detailing to the legs, and red feet.
