It just inspires from IDW but it doesnt represent it nor does it tie into it. This is a stand alone continuity so it takes inspiration from different things, hence why it sounds like a mix of different story elements.

I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Well technically this is all more or less of a fan project with official backing. None of this is handled by hasbro studios. Machinima's content is mostly derivitive of other media (video games, films ect), it's not like they deal with big budgets. I mean think about it, the biggest star they employ is Tommy Wiseau :lol:

Is that Jon Bailey as Starscream also?

Couldn't help but laugh a little at the Leathel Weapon-esque introspective blues guitar soundtrack. :lol:
These are certainly peeking my interest to see how the show unfolds.

Whoever's voicing Starscream in this is channeling Chris Latta, and I dig it.

Based on his speech, this Starscream is a more noble leader than his IDW counterpart, truly driven by and caring for the needs of his people, but then again, Starscream is an unreliable narrator. Good tease, though!

I wasn't expecting it to sound like Chris Latta, but the reason why I disliked it was to me it sounded nothing like him, or any other previous Starscream. Just kind of wimpy, generic. So far I am 2 up and 2 down.

Optimus & Victorion I was ok with. Megatron & Starscream, not so much. but I know Megs pretty much wont be in this, so no worries there.

Honestly, I kinda feel that this was the best of the three so far (though, compared to the other two, that's not saying much, admittedly), as it's a nice self-reflection piece that focuses primarily on the development of the character in question, how he's come a long way from how he used to be, having grown and matured from the ambitious schemer he once was into a burdened and more responsible bearer of leadership. Starscream always wanting to take over is something we've seen time and again, but the achievement of his lifelong goal actually opening his eyes to the reality of how taxing a leadership role can truly be is a good angle to use for the character to help him grow and mature as a person. He realizes that it's not all fun and games, and actually ponders if it was truly worth it, but chooses to stick to his guns and do what he must for the good of the planet of which he is now in charge. Good stuff. :APPLAUSE:

I agree it was well written and shows some refreshing development of the character (though I do like the idea of Starscream being a sociopath and actually believing his own lies). But again the voice was just off...I'm sure in the series with full animation I'll be able to overlook it once its in context with the other characters.

It was a nice character piece for Starscream. I just wish the background music had been turned down a few more knotch's as I found it overpowered the monologue in a few places.

I just listened to the video (was at work so couldnt watch it) and the voice is perfectly fine for me. Sounds like Starscream jut a bit less high pitched which is perfectly fine for me.

I dont like that background music though, it was an odd mix with the tone.

It sounds like whoever did the background music, really really wanted it to be Shine on you Crazy Diamond, but Machinima couldn't get the rights to use it.

It reminds me most of Armada Starscream's voice minus that voice's constant "angry" tone and extra raspiness, and with more emotion added to it.
