Some new and better images of D.I. Studio's Hearts of Steel Starscream and have been posted by TEKMEN to his weibo page. Even more interesting, they also have a prototype for a Hearts of Steel Insectitrain on display. It appears this new third-party company plans to give MasterMind Creations a run for their money. Images mirrored below.

Additionally TFW2005's Cadbane has posted some up close and personal shots of Starscream that begin here.

I like HOC Starscream & i'll try to buy him.

When I saw the HOC insecticons a long time ago. i loved them. that is until the fan projects casualty G-1 styled insecticons came out & i liked them better.

The only way i could see myself buying the HOC insecticons. is if all 3 HOC insecticons combined in robot mode. yes i realize they combine in train mode but it's not enough,i need them to also combine in robot mode to create a huge leader or ultra sized sized robot gestalt combiner

I like the figure, it just doesn't fit the starscream personality, it isn't sleek, quick, or lanky. I've never seen/read any of the HoS stuff but judging by the wright's brothers inspiration, lanky would be a much better representation. Also, those feet are atrocious.

With all that said though, it looks pretty bad ass.

Eeeh, he's not as cool looking up close, he doesn't have the "sexy face" that Guido Guidi gives Starscream, it looks like he's in shock, sorta. :-(

Looks really pretty cool but I know the price tag is going to keep from buying it xP

Too sexy to pass up. This might end up being the first HOS figure I'll get. Hopefully it won't be uber-expensive. :-s

Love these. I always loved the concept and designs of the HoS characters. I just wish I had the money for third party products, or I'd have these when they came out, along with the HoS Prime that came out, and the HoS Shockwave that is in the works.

I would say he looks more like Mindwipe than he does Starscream. Put him in Mindwipe colors and you have a winner.

The whole head just isn't working for me. I can see what cannonfodder4000 means about the face, and the ear flap things just make him look like the aquatic people from the G1 cartoon.

Being the War buff that I am, I might actually buy Starscream if he transforms into a bomber. (hence the 3 propellers which some european WWI era aircraft had) However there were no aircraft in the 1800's when HOS took place. So if Starscream turns into a Da Vinci styled flying machine Im not interested.

On a seperate note, I find it very disturbing how the word "sexy" is being used to describe a male robots features.

You know what I find Interesting, in HOS, Starscream turned into something more like the Wright Flyer, but they're the "Batwing" style concept art we saw in the back flaps, and not the straight wing version. Hmm.

Guess that was directed toward myself and cannonfodder, right?

Anyway....

Ageed. I'm not much of a war buff as you, but nonetheless I like anything war-ish, and if they style him as a WWI bomber, possible buy, but if his background has anything to do with Da Vinci, oh well, fan fiction will be needed... :P

Argh its starscream the lawyer!!!
look he has the lawyer smirk! The whole "trust me" thing happening!!!

Ok on a related note, HoS was industrial revolution era, ok steam power was there, but we have to remember it is fiction so a whole concept can be utilized. That's what we have to remember

I would describe the Starscream artwork as "Awesome".

Now if you want to see my opinion of "Sexy" check this out:

It is an impressive looking mold but I have no real urge to get it. MasterMind Creations better kick it up a notch(speed wise/I know Cyclops is awesome). Looks like these guys are trying to beat them to the punch with the Insecticons as well.
