Looks really easy to transform for a Leader class.

Looks good but the articulation is rather poor. Such a shame. Still on the want list but not at the top.

He's definitely on the top of my want list. I really hope they don't make us wait until next year to get him. Maybe they'll hurry their butts up and roll them out in time for the winter solstice/holidays (X-mas for you religious folk)? I wish.

I don't have my voyager SS on me so I can't check, but is it my imagination or does Leader SS has a worse, more kibbly underside than the Voyager? I remember the Voyager one had an undercarriage that was almost clean; in fact I thought that except for the hands the Voyager was pretty cool (I think if only the hands folded at the fingers or palm it would have made it easily so much better)

On another note, how do people get these early prototypes? I see them selling on ebay. Are these all stolen?

I will be grabbing this one as soon as I see it. I really like the jet mode on him. Nice and big.

I like how he points out that the voyager Starscream looks like a kids' toy... Poor poor man. Hate to break it to you but these all are a kids' toys, we are the sad men who play with them :lol:

Yes, it is more kibbly but we get a much better robot mode for it. The voyager looks so bandy legged in comparison.

I wish they would do a Leader class Blackout! That would be awesome! :D The Voyager figure is obviously way out of scale with all the other figures and just doesn't do the character justice. I think they could really capture the bulkiness and power of Blackout in a larger scale figure :) The transformation could be a lot more interesting too, I think one of my favourite scenes from the live action movies was the first time Blackout transformed near the beginning of the first film

Very cool. I'm not a fan of Movie Starscream's design but the Leader class figure at least makes the proportions look better. I'm liking the leg design. I'm glad it has flip out heel components to increase stability.

Yeah.. not even freaking close there.

Peaugh is going to be reviewing Leader Starscream, perhaps we'll get to hear the sounds and see the lights a bit more clearly this time around.

it was one of my favorites, too, and I would love a bigger version of him (I even photoshopped this up for size comparison) - but after close inspection I believe they did a lot of cheating with his transformation on screen. I doubt they'd be able to do him justice, and it would just be a bigger version of the Voyager toy.

I really want to see comparisons to ROTF OP and G1 MP SS, those are the characters he would interact with/be compared to on most shelves! well, at least mine...
