Almost every Transformers: Prime character look to be waving the Beast Hunters banner in 2013, and from the bottom packaging of the recently revealed Beast Hunters Bulkhead and Smokescreen, comes a new Beast Hunters figure, Starscream! Although the first wave of Beast Hunters Deluxes all featured retooled First Edition or Robots In Disguise figures, the stock picture provided makes it unclear whether or not the First Edition mold is retooled for Beast Hunters Starscream. Either way, Starscream has a new look! Check it out below.

Pass without a second thought. I hope they aren't making all these changes to the on screen characters.

Think this is going to be a pass for me. I'm pretty happy with the Starscream I have already. Extra pointy bits aren't terribly exciting.

Distributed in Australia by Hasbro Australia Ltd....?
Now that's just teasing. I haven't seen anything new for TFPrime since the Arcee and Ratchet wave.

Hold it right there. The first wave consists of three RID retools and one original mold. No FEs.
, the stock picture provided makes it unclear whether or not the First Edition mold is retooled for Beast Hunters Starscream.

That is most definitely a new mold. FE Starscream had very thin limbs, this guy is shorter and squatter. The hips are further apart, the head is higher, and this figure has ball-jointed elbows. So this is almost certainly figure 005. Which gives us:
001: Bumblebee
002: Wheeljack
003: Soundwave
004: Lazerback
005: Starscream
006: Ripclaw
007: Bulkhead
008: Smokescreen
So the question in my mind is whether Bulkhead and Smokescreen are wave 2 or 3.

And there we have the missing nr. 005. :D

It doesn't look great compared to the FE mold, but I actually like this redesign and would love a Starscream more in scale with Soundwave. Looks like I'm getting all four of these guys.

Ripclaw's still the only one that appeals to me.

I totally called this. >:oP

Not sure if I want or not. I'll wait until we see clearer images before I make a decision.

I can't say anything nice so I'm keeping my mouth shut. Hasbro are losing my money.

The only thing about this I'm somewhat excited about is an actual mold for Smokescreen. Even extra crap on him is a slap to my face. Why is it that an awesome series have such a crappy toyline?

Wow, this series looks truly terrible. It's like Transformers Gen2 and Beast Machines had sex and this is their offspring.

I'm starting to wonder if Hasbro needs to give their TF brand a long needed break so they can try again at a later time when they have an actual good idea for this series. Transformers hasn't been worth collecting since Binaltech/Alternators.

Looks like a new mold to me. The hip and wing placement seems different from the FE.

But it's another easy pass for me. 2 out of 8 figures revealed in this line so far are only maybes. I'm definitely going to be saving some money this year.

Beast Hunters seems to be destined to fail. The whole "beast" concept wasnt liked by everyone back in the 1990's. I think bringing it back will slow down the momentum of the TF franchise.

Would have to see better picks, but looks Starscream would make a halfway decent Terrorsaur repaint. Also, he comes with Inferno's gun for some reason.
