What can I say? Starscream has been a constant thorn in the Autobots' side for years. He even took command of the Decepticon forces for a bit, until Galvatron blew him to smithereens in the movie. Made a breif come back during the Beast Wars when he posessed Waspinator, and has been back ever since Armada.
With the Classics line that is coming out all over the country, and in some places across the world, it would be fitting to include Starscream in it because of the fact that he is one of the most devious, yet popular character there is. So, let me get going on to this review. (pics soon to come).
Classics Starscream goes back to his G1 roots as a figher plane. A nice sleek design. The colors on him are grey, blue, red, and silver around the transparent yellow cockpit. A bit of dark grey is the color of the thursters. The classic rub symbol is on the left wing, if you look at it from the back (right if u look from the front). If you turn him over, there , you can see his robot chest and waist and legs. Yellow is there to color his knees, but I will talk more about that in a bit. I, personally, have no problem with this mode, other than the fact there is no landing gear coming from the nose cone.
This is definately the Starscream from the G1 era. He's not bad as a robot, and as far a posiability goes, yeah you'll have to move the wings a bit in order to use his cannons mounted on his shoulders, but its just a minor thing. The same colors are on him and just holds together. The only real problem I have is that in order to move his head from side to side, is to move the front part of the nose that has been swing to his back. Other than that, and adding a little bit of color to his face, I like him.
This is the first chance I have came close to ever having the original Starscream.
For a deluxe, its not that bad of a figure, and if you never got the chance to get G1 Starscream, I would highly recommend pick this up where ever you can.
