Oh, that Armada Starscream is beautiful!!!

Image

My only gripe it is that the sword(s) no longer form his wing. I hope the intakes fold onto his shoulder for a more accurate look. I'm immediately sold on this guy! :x

Scoop and pals are looking amazing as well! I would be surprised if we don't get him retooled into Scrapper. He would make a pretty nice Scrapper.

Now bring on Skywarp! :grin:

If I were to get Predaking, it would only be for the fact he has the black armor pieces (Seeker torso to boot as well!) I've been hoping for. Now for some purple and brown bits to complete the set... :grin:

I can't tell if Scoop is Deluxe or Scout (Generations Legends) size.

Predaking looks like a Bionicle (even more-so than the other Constructbots).

He's supposed to be a Deluxe. That's what we were told back at BotCon.

Scoop hits the button of my G1 nostalgia, though I didn't have a G1 Scoop. For some reason I can't explain, the toy looks great fun to me.

Armada Starscream looks neat but I don't have a connection to the Armada toys.

Construct-Bots Predaking looks like more Construct-Bot goodness to me so I'm pleased.

Really cool looking Armada Starscream! The swords still coming from his wings is a cool homage even if his whole wing can no longer turn into a sword. I wonder what you can do with those parts on his back? Hopefully they can still come up as cannons. Scoop also looks pretty great with his little two pals.

If Armada Starscream has a chance I'm really hoping Energon Scorponok gets a chance in Generations! Hopefully we see more updated Unicron Trilogy characters.

That Starscream looks awesome but my one nitpick would be that those colors are not even close to being accurate. I hope those aren't the final colors or I hope Takara's will be show accurate.

Scoop looks cool to.

Wait, what? The swords store inside the wings? I thought they made up what used to be his thrusters in jet mode! :shock:

Hopefully we see more updated Unicron Trilogy characters.


This so many times. I'd like to see Red Alert, Demolishor, and Cyclonus.

excited for the scoop. Based on the pic, that looks like its hand painted. I guess since the prototype was shown via pic at BotCon, that if it is in color is probably hand painted. Regardless, looks good and if that is the color scheme, it looks nice and i'll expect it in a flatter or more satin like finish

I'd say the colors are pretty decent. I wish there was more silver/gray on the legs, and the red was more like this. The red seen here feels like it has a touch of orange.

No vehicle mode shot of Starscream? Looks really nice though; I'd pick it up. Scoop looks like a nice figure even if it seems like an odd choice to update.

The ConstructBots don't really do it for me, but that Predaking is nice. I will admit my first thought was G1 Predaking. :P

Scoop looks cool to.

Besides the black detailing around the intakes on his pecs, shoulders, and the chinstrap, and that the lower legs should be grey instead of black, what's he missing? Looks right to me. :lol: It's hardly "not even close."

Might just be the camera. Red it one of those obnoxious colors that doesn't like showing up properly / in its rightful hue.

No, actually I think they're under the wings. I'm basing this assumption on this pic from TFW.

You can see some translucent pieces under the wings which I'm pretty sure are the swords.

Hopefully the arms can actually be swiveled to the correct position in jet mode without making too much of a hindrance.

Yeah, I see it now. I saw the translucent thrusters on the jet mode in another of TFW2005's image set and that's what I assumed.

Awesome that the swords still store in the wings. That's one gripe taken down a significant notch! :grin:

Screamer's got too much red. He needs more color-contrast like the original toy had. Some more black ought to do it.

Honestly, I feel that he needs more gray than black. ;)

Starscream looks amazing but I doubt he will see him packed with Swindle,but it does look like he has mini con ports on his arms so only time will tell.As for Scoop the robot mode looks like it belongs in the 80s cartoon which some may think is a good thing others a bad thing.I really would like to see a Decepticon repaint,then I may consider buying it.Constructacon colours would be perfect an would go well with ROTF MixMaster with G1 colours.
