Well, i'm impressed. They managed to take (my personal opinion) a failure like the Starscream figure, and make it into an even bigger failure!

No kidding. Whether or not he's mistransformed, I don't really care. He's terrible. Both Optimus molds look good, are there any remoldings on the voyager? I never did pick that one up.

The Optimus Voyager mold looks pretty much unchanged.. maybe slightly different paint apps here and there.. like the Autobot insignia on the side of the truck cab..

I cant make my mind up about that Starscream though.. the paint looks pretty cool.. I see some Cybertronian glyphs and things in there.. be pretty interresting to see what thats all about..

For now I think ill reserve judgement until some more photos surface..

A nice paint job isn't going to save a figure with bowed legs. :?

I might skip the voyager Prime and go straight to the Leader class.
Starscream kinda interests me because of his alt mode. It seems that they were able to finally reconcile the fact that F-22s keep their armaments inside. I might get this just for the alt mode.

I still hate the design for movie Starscream. Low-slung arms and chicken legs, it's revolting. Starscream should look sleek and fast. That said, this figure is a vast improvement over the first movie figure, simply due to the addition of HANDS.

Thats true Burn.. Im in the process of repainting the previous Starscream mold.. and in comparison this new ones legs are not only tiny.. but pretty odd looking.

...that said it may well be dodgy camera angle or hasbro-brand mistransformation..

Starscream is an improvement over the old voyager version. I can't figure out how he can walk properly with his leg arrangement though. The old one had better legs. Still, the alt mode looks awesome!



But there is already an alternator-styled movie Bumblebee. What's next? A masterpiece-styled movie Starscream! If such a thing shows up, this one would again be looked down upon.

THe addition of hands is very welcome. I think the legs are a mistransformation.

And now we know what this mech-alive thing is all about.

But I'm cursing hasbro for releasing an identical Ironhide with decent weapons...

This is the old voyager Prime so not impressed. The Starscream is the same as the previous version but with no arms and they put some gimmicks in his chest. When looking at the bigger picture it says the missile launchers pop out of the arms, so i am hoping this figure will have fingers that are functional. If this is the case i'll buy him for sure.

So I guess this means we won't see a Leader class Starscream. Dang!

I'm gonna give in, I just know it.

I'm gonna give in and buy that Starscream, even though I told myself it wasn't gonna happen considering I have the original, which I happen to like just fine, but this one seems to have all of the pieces we were missing the first go 'round, and he looks really good.

Ironhide on the other hand, it seems all they did was change his weapons (they're more accurate, of course) but it's not enough to warrant a purchase. (Though I'll most likely be proven wrong when we see the figure and find out he does something amazing.)

Leader Prime is a must buy. Seems to be a fully accurate transformation this time around.

Voyager...no. Left him the first time, gonna keep on truckin' when he hits the shelves.

No, it's a totally new mold upon close inspection. And yes he has fingers.

My vote for the best quote on this thread! That is exactly how I feel.

Too me, Prime looks the same from the first toy, maybe different paint here and there and you would think to give him different weapons as well, like the energon sword or something different really cool! anyway, i agree that starscream looks kinda cool and really like the idea of him having fingers unlike before and i would say yes that he is mis-transformed! I'll just wait for soundwave and the constructicons in May.

Makes me wonder why i bothered to buy the toys the first time because these look so much cooler

Both of these look better but I will have to think about whether I'll get them. :-?

These do look pretty cool, but they are not different enough from the original Starscream, Prime, and Ironhide to warrant another purchase.

My general rule is not to buy more than one version of each character per line unless something is too spectacular to pass on.
