Here we go, the race for Transformers extinction has started, Starstcream overall look lacks on too many things that it would be a long list of detailed areas to cover, honestly it s u cks; along with 99% of the Animated stuff I've seen.

This *jet* what care-bear is the one that pilots him?

That is very blue after all. A Thundercracker repaint wouldn't be likely in my mind. But that's okay, it makes the chances of a new Skywarp for my collection all the more likely. :PRAY:

I'd have to disagree. The figure is really nice, even with the chin so many people seem to hate. But I think it adds character. :P

I think it looks great. I am loving everything about Animated thus far.

You and me both. I would love to see a Skywarp come from this mold (with a different head sculpt of course). That would be very nice indeed.

im not a fan of the packaging style but in this case it works quite well, it will stand out from a lot of other toys on the shelves (which i suppose is the idea), still i'd prefer squarer boxes and less of the toothpaste package look.

Those dismissing the animated toys as the end of TF are overlooking the fact that it seems theres been a very big reversal of opinion regarding the animation and to a greater degree the toys themselves.

Compared to the movie and cybertron toys which i think are equally dull (well actually the movie line is the duller of the two) these are decidedly funky, they arent the definitive TF we want (thats for universe) but they at least seem to raise smiles from those who see them, a movie or cybertron toy has NEVER made me automatically smile, the animation toys do, weird but true. I know a circle of toy junkies in their mid 30's- early 40's who collect several takara lines from the early 70's onwards, they have barely touched TF but animated has them all interested amazingly enough.

id say that its what these toys lack that makes them a winner, they have a clever minimal design which is the anthithesis of the movie toys.

its evil care bear that pilots SS.

Im really glad these toys are upcoming as it allows me to ignore the movie line totally. If it wasnt for knowing that arguably superior toys were around the corner id be perusing the movie line toys wanting to like then and probably buying one or two that i felt were ok (and i have bought one or two i feel are decent, like target repaint jazz).

Lol. Was there ever an evil care bear? And how did it hook up with Starscream? :P That idea is just crazy enough to work in the show.

...Maybe not.

Nahh Grumpy was a Gummi Bear wasn't he? :P

That jet looks pretty good, if a bit blue. Wonder how it suffers in the usual jet underhanging kibble stakes?
Still not sold on the Bot mode though.

I love the figure, but the only thing that bugs me about it is the inversed wings in jet mode. However, with that said, the jet looks like nothing that exists on earth, so I assume it's a futuristic jet and it's all good.

I haven't seen the series yet. He's piloted by a care bear?

Nah of course not. Just a disgruntled Transformers fan venting about the figures 'kiddiness'.
