Why is Starscream blue? Is it just the lighting, or is he 'sposed to be Thundercracker?

Nope, he's Starscream. Just checked the image of the boxback.

That's one of the reason I dont collect Thundercracker. So many times, it's just Blue Screamers.

That's like saying you don't collect Skywarp because he's a black Starscream. ;) Aren't they all a repaint of Screamer in some way,shape or form? :lol:

There have been exceptions:

- Universe 2003 Skywarp, repaint of BM Jetstorm
- Cybertron Thundercracker, his own mold. He did get repainted into a Skywarp however.
- Titanium 6 inch Thundercracker, who was repainted into Starscream, the reverse of the norm.

Interesting :-? Screamer being one of my favourites, I would've thought the others would be based on him. There you go!

Well, the true reasons behind collecting very, very few Starscream repaints is because:

1) Starscream is awesome and is a key character.

2) Money. So many TF to buy. I will not buy the very same molds in double, triple, on infiniple because there's too much other TFs to buy...

3)...and even if I would have more money, I'll need more space to display them all. I'm already running out of space with just Starscream, Optimus Prime, and all the rest.
