ACToys.com has posted new pictures of the Universe Starscream repaint. This repaint is, of course, none other than the Classics Starscream, repainted in more traditional G1 animation colors.

You can see the original thread here and the images are shown below.

Not the hottest use of the mould.

This definitely turns me on. I can't believe I want to buy him after owning the first Classics, and the Henkie version.

This really makes me wish I'd known about this before I ordered the Henkei. Sure it's less detailed but it fixes the major problems, and doesn't have the lame chrome.

this starscream it would have to be if i see him instores ill pick him up but if i dont see him in stores and they stopped having him stock ill get henkei either way i dont car to much hasbro & takra figures look slightly identical to each other if you dont look that closley at the details butthats it.

i know im going to get for this bue here it is on certain figures but i just did a comaprison of this starscream and takrar starscream if you big on detail get henkei, if you just want the figure no matter how he lokos get hasbro version what gives hasbro is a big toy company but they bad job sometimes when painting some of the figures.????

Pass, I still say the original Hasbro Classics paint scheme is the best of the bunch.

Yeah I'm going to have to pick up this figure! Considering the original was crap and my Henkei has the retarded backwards knee!

Definetly going to buy it. Even if I already have the crappy Classic SS. But I am still waiting for a Sunstorm repaint. :-(

I missed out on him with the first Classics line. Now's my chance! And now I'm glad I didn't get him first time around. This one is beautiful!

MMMMMMMM :oops:

I was still kicking myself for not buying the previous funny striped Classics Starscream for $30 at a recent toy show.

G1 accurate plus half the price and off the shelf? :mrgreen: I'm in!

And there go the holes.

I'd put money on the new Starscream. My wish is that Hasbro would've released him with 86 cartoon colors before instead of messing around with us. Damn.

How am I supposed to break it to my Classics Screamer that he's going to be replaced? He's still getting used to Classics Megs turning up and replacing him as head 'Con, now he's not even going to be head Screamer.

Nice, but aren't there still some seekers missing that this mold could be used for? Where's the rest of the rainmakers?
Re: New Images of Universe G1 Starscream (795286)

The rainmakers can bite my shiney metal ass. I'm really not bothered about a couple of jets that had thirty seconds screentime in one epsiode. Seriously, what's the big deal with them?

I'm afraid this one's a pass for me. I already have the Henkei version which I prefer.
