Knock-knock. Who's there? Transformers Colombia! Once again, the infamous Facebook page has uploaded images of new Transformers product, this time featuring Construct-Bots Galvatron and, oddly, Starscream! Does this mean that Starscream might make a return in Age of Extinction? Or is this simply just a case of a character receiving a toy just for the sake of getting a toy? Chime in at the Energon Pub forums of what you think!

Look at Screamer's left eye


it looks like damage like perhaps boom stick damage?




Starscream has been known to come back from the dead or survive things he should not.

Well yeah ... for starters, most of the car companies will provide the vehicles to be used for filming so that saves money as opposed to paying someone to design and then build the vehicles.

Plus people will watch the movie and go "oooo I like that car! Ima gonna go buy one!" So that's even more incentive for them to use licensed vehicles.

But in all fairness, they have had variety with movie vehicles, we've had tanks, planes, construction vehicles, home appliances, vending machines ...

Or it could be just a facial expression. Wouldn't be the first in the Dino Riders part of the Construct-Bots line. ;)

They HAD a nice variety of alts, but now they don't. The first movie really gave the impression that anything could be a robot in disguise, but now it's like "look at the custom $2 million dollar car Ferrari hand-delivered to me!" Bah.

[snark] If only Bay got as exited to sell the robots as he does the cars...

Besides cars we do get our first live action Dump-truck transformer (Junkheap)

and Military Autobot (Hound)

MAYBE Starscream is in this film to. Look at the tv spot that shows a F-22 flying on direction to Lockdown`s ship!
And another moment when Tessa in trapped in those ropes or electric wires I am not sure , at very high and Bumblebee jumps to salve them. So in those moment just pass by an F-22 one more time.
So... MAYBE He is really back. Let`s wait and see. :CON:

well they wont would have to work that hard to fix him. his body was intact. he just needs some work on his head and they need to figure out how actual transformations work. not sure if stinger is the only one that transforms like that but i hope he is. dont really like the new method

It appears that the Dino Riders have a fixed number of parts so I guess Starscream can't come with two guns. On the plus side there are cannons molded into the wings. I wonder if this means we'll see Dinobot repaints as Decepticons for the Decepticon Dino Riders to ride.

Yeah in fact the only major damage Scream suffered in that scene was the loss of his eyesight and only a small part of his head was blown off (the left side which in this toy has the weird eye)

one of his arms falling off along with one of his back boosters and thats it.



Shockwave also has a toy in this line according to leaked lists (this starscream was also in said list)


only damage he suffered was the loss of his eye sight then getting a chunk of his side unched out and finally getting his eye torn out.



If Bay wants too he can bring them back like he did Megatron in Rotf



and plus Ratchet is only getting a kreo toy and we know he is in the movie and as of far they don't make up characters for the movie sub lines only the main line



and even then for this movie since they are generations they are sharing with the G1 generations there for there can be no room for made up characters and also one of the guys at Hasbro said fir Gen all of the characters in that line will be in the movie.

All hail Starscream the not-so-dead! :CON:

Really though, I'm digging that color scheme. Hope that sticks around.

They could bring them back, but is it in their best interest? It's already hard enough to put down a Transformer for good (Allspark fragment, Matrix of Leadership etc.) without the whole "we'll rebuilt them with nanite technology" added in to cheapen death.

It's comic book storytelling like that which makes people not believe in perma-death. It's why Megatron's death in the first had no resonance and Optimus's Death in the second had no dramatic weight; we knew they'd get better.

Jsyk, I'm not trying to attack your suggestions, just to discuss what's in the story's best interest.

In a bit of a catch-up, our fellow Seibertron.com member and YouTube reviewer chuckdawg1999 has been posting multiple reviews of ConstructBots Dino Riders figures, and we've rounded them up below for your viewing! Take a look below at Slug with Drift, Slash wth Hound and Strafe with Bumblebee, which, along with Scorn with Crosshairs and Grimlock with Optimus Prime, round off the Dinobot team so far.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Slug fits into the more tradition style of animal based Transformer. Bend it over and fiddle with the limbs for beast mode. There is some charm to it but I feel it's one of the weaker kits. Drift impresses like all the other Dino Riders and I recommend it over Slug.




chuckdawg1999 wrote:I went in expecting a straight repaint of Grimlock with maybe a few new parts but Slash is an entirely new mold that I feel is one of the best Constructbot sets we've gotten thus far. Hound is my personal favorite Dino Rider and I really think the way his gun integrates into vehicle mode is fantastic.




chuckdawg1999 wrote:Strafe is probably the most unique of the Dinobot builds we've gotten thus far, but weak joints make it difficult to support its weight in Dino mode. Bumblebee like the other Riders is a fun build and a great figure. I would recommend Bumblebee over Strafe or just wait for a deal on the set.

Starscream's colors really remind me of his Botshot launcher set from 2011.
My take on him reappearing, is that we've seen no characters that aren't going to be in the movie. Even though there probably won't be alot, we'll probably get a few new characters. However Starscream isn't a new character, so we shouldn't just cast him as a toy only character.
Galvatron looks great though, if backwards
