Looks great.

This is the Starscream we should've had all along.

HOLY HELL!!! What a master piece SS is and this is what SS should have from the start. I can hear it now "No one can defeat StarScream"
or "Not to sound like a coward Megatron, but cowards do survive"

It's takes so long to post galleries of toys released over a year ago (Premium Jazz, Barricade and Bumblebee), but this is posted *before* the release of the toy? :shock:

Explain.

Start to finish, it takes about 4 to 6 hours to do a gallery. I do galleries first based on which ones I think will perform the best and generate the most traffic. Newer figures are always a priority over older figures. FYI ... I have posted 314 galleries in the past year. It's a ton of work but I love it.

The premium figures from the last series were what I call "rainy day" galleries. We already had how many different versions of the figures that were released as Premium toys? They're not big traffic generators because you weren't really seeing something new with those figures. I think around the time those were coming out, I was getting a lot of TFA prototypes which took far greater priority than figures that had already seen multiple releases and repaints.

Sometimes Seibertron.com itself gets in my way of working on galleries in a timely fashion. I spent three months earlier this year redesigning the site, restructuring the site's database, and rewriting a ton of code from the ground up. I didn't work on any galleries during the time, which is why the figures at the end of Universe were missed such as Ratchet and Hot Shot.

I also have a life outside of Seibertron, a career, a family, and friends. Sometimes my personal life prevents me from doing galleries as soon as a figure comes out. Or basement floods. Or server crashes.

I always have a rainy day list. I work on this list when I've caught up with a line or when there's a lull between series or releases. I'm currently working through the rainy day list right now. I've got about twenty galleries waiting to get posted to the site over the next couple of weeks. I'm currently working on posting the Premium series galleries. I'm trying to get to the Club exclusive Seacons and Nightbeat that I started over a year ago but never finished before the next onslaught of ROTF starts appearing.

My goal is to get to 2,000 galleries before the end of the year. I've got less than six weeks to do 75 galleries.

Isn't the Supreme Cybertron Starscream bigger than the Leader ROFT Starscream though?

Yes it is. The news story above says that this is the largest Starscream since Cybertron, not that this is the largest figure.

Another great gallery!

I'm not a fan of the movie Starscream design but the Leader class figure really makes me appreciate the design. I'm definitely going to pick up this figure when I have the chance. :)

Ryan, great job on the gallery as always.

I hope it's not too late for this, since this fig was a loaner, but could you get some pics of him with Masterpiece Starscream? I bet they'd look awesome together. Thanks!

And now I know first hand just how much work it is, and my MP Skywarp gallery was nowhere near the quality of any of yours! ;) You do a lot of great work for this community, and we all really appreciate it. :)

On this particular gallery: Holy epicness Batman! I am excited as heck to look through this in full detail later. Work prevents me from drooling over everything in detail, but I certainly will get to it ASAP. :D

No guaranties, but they are aware of the problem and changed the formula of the plastic. And only the shiny gold plastic with swirls will crumble.

Yeah. Like the one on this particular Leader Class Starscream.

Let's not start any rumors.

You really have to have an understanding of the particular polymer that was used and the process that it underwent for the molding.

It's not the inclusions, nor is it a result of the swirling that causes GPS. It's a specific fault in the polymer creation process (very likely linked to the particular dye and mix of the plastic).

Re: Seibertron's Gallery of ROTF Leader Class Starscream is Online! (1021418)
Posted by Starscream on November 20th, 2009 @ 3:09pm CST
As the new owner of this figure, I wouldn't worry about GPS. I am pretty confident that it is not the same gold plastic that we have been victim to in the past. It has a similar hue, but it's not exactly the same.

This doesn't have the same amount of swoopy-goopy that the original GP seems to have

Still, it's not so much of an issue anymore as Hasbro has confirmed. The latest real case was Beast Wars Neo Randy from 10 years ago, and possibly RiD Megabolt. The chance is still there, but much smaller now.

Ah, I see. Just seemed funny how the galleries were so close! Didn't mean to be ignorant, it really does seem like a lot of work, so kudos to you!

Great work too! :)

Because they can't combine like Optimus Prime and Jetfire could. You're probably thinking of the jets Mindwipe and Skystalker that are due out.

No he's referring to this stupid thing;

Obviously it's Voyager Starscream attached onto Megatron, and it's obviously a fan creation.. wasn't meant to exist. Whatever, Street-Convoy keeps thinking it's Leader Starscream and I doubt he'll understand - ever.

Nah, I'll give him a shot, anyway GPS normally appears after a few years :P

Now to start the ball rolling

"Is there going to be a Premiuim Version of this"
"A LTD Version"
"Takaras Version (The japanesse may have not heard of chipmunk voices yet :D )"

Only to wait and see, but sadly I'll have to wait to get Brawl before this, the 2 year mission still continues (:|

They can't combine, the picture of them "combined" is just Voyager Starscream with his arms and legs wrapped around Leader Megatron to make it look like they're combined. Besides, Leader Starscream is a little bit taller than Leader Optimus who is a little taller than Leader Megatron, and Leader Starscream is a light gray while the Voyager is a darker off-gray. And think about it, Megatron and Starscream hate each other, they've never combined before and I doubt they ever will, or would ever want to. :wink:

Leader Megatron isn't terrible but I think it's the worst of the 4 RotF Leader class figures. Megs gets left out often, I think...

RotF Leader OP: Pew pew pew!

RotF Leader Starscream: Pew pew pew!

RotF Leader Megatron: Come on, guys! Can I play too?

RotF Leader OP: Sorry, Megatron. It's just that you can't keep up with us with your quasimodo-ness and gimpy arm...

RotF Leader Starscream: Yeah! Just sit, err, I mean slump back and relax!

RotF Leader Megatron: Well, it looks like it's just you and me, Jetfire.

RotF Leader Jetfire: What do you mean? I'm just waiting for OP to tag me in and we're gonna combine and be super epic!

RotF Leader Megatron: So one truly is the loneliest number... :sad:
