No translation of the bio yet? I can read some, but I don't see any mention of "Micron" anything. Just a lot of Megatron

If Takara Screamer goes on sale, I'll probably pick it up, but I'm not really desperate for an Armada homage.

As I stated, I'll use the Hasbro one (which I already have) for IDW Screamer and Takara's for Armada Screamer.shajaki wrote:anyone on the fence about which aramada starscream to buy? i hope not...

It just drives me insane because I love the mold but I hate Hasbros paint job so much that even at gun-point I'd have to think long and hard on snagging it and even at that I may still choose the bullet first.
The Takara version though is something I'd snag in a heartbeat if it were easily available to me and inexpensive. Actually, I'd get two just so I could swap out the white for G1-grey and maybe do a few VERY minor paint alterations elsewhere. The red is absolutely perfect both in hue and location. The only issue I have is the cockpit. They went with the clear orange elsewhere so why not do the cockpit too? I guess that would be one argument for buying a Hasbro 'Screamer. Swap the cockpits out and maybe use the Hasbro version for the G1 re-paint that I'd like to do but then I'd have to do the ENTIRE figure and still not have a clear cockpit on it. Screw it, I'll just buy it for the cockpit and chuck the rest of it, that's how much I despise Hasbro's version.
That's right, I would throw that kind of money away to achieve Starscream perfection instead of living with one companies complete and utter mess.

It's painted black, though, rather than cast in black plastic.
