Movie Leader.

 

G1 color Universe Starscream w/coronation set.

 

DOTM deluxe.

 

Energon, either version.

 

Cybertron, or GF voyager sized version.

 

Armada. Just something I really do like about it, though certainly has flaws.

 

 

 

 

Not putting MP Starscream in here because that's less of a toy and more of a showpiece that I really don't mess with a whole lot.

Classic Starscream (the grey one, not the bland white Universe release)

Cybertron - either one, but the Voyager class is easier to display and play with

Armada - the first in too many years, and a good representation

Robot Masters - until I got the Classics one, this was my G1 Starscream update.

Animated Activator - good proportions, posable and good use of the autotransform feature

Kre-O - it's just fun

I had the first release 1.0 Classics deluxe starscream. but when the 2nd release colors came out in the universe packaging,I bought that one & got rid of the first release 1.0 Version.

 

I didn't like the 1.0 first release colors/decals for Classics deluxe starscream. because the decals weren't like the 1984 starscream stickers/decals. I like the 2nd release colors/decals better because the stickers/decals look more like 1984 starscreams. the white color was a bit weird but after looking at my walmart MP Starscream,I noticed it's was a mirrored/homage color scheme.

 

If I had the money & could justify the high price. I would have bought the Takara henkei deluxe starscream,as those colors+decals are my favorite.

Well, really, the Universe Starscream's deco doesn't look like the G1 toy either - it looks like the animated version, whose deco was based more on Thundercracker's stickers, but in SS's color scheme. Screamer had plain red stripes, not the fancy multicolor stripes we saw on the show. And the colors of the Classics release are a lot closer to the G1 toy, even if the pattern is new.

 

Between that and the floppiness of the Universe release, I vastly prefer the Classics one.

Nostalgia rules here, so I gotta go with the 1984 G1 Starscream is my favorite figure/character. I remember sitting in the playground during recess playing with him for the first time that belonged to a friend of mine at the time. I was so transfixed by him and the mold, I wanted him so bad but never got him. I also loved him in the G1 cartoons too.

    • Yeah he's a pretty chunky monkey! I'm hoping his bulk lends itself well to some of my future builds! 😄
    • Uh did I miss something? Where does it say that it's a partial of Huffer? It's not stated in the quote here or in the livestream. In this quote it even says that it's "ALL NEW in three molds!!!". I mean it's standing right there next to Huffer and nothing looks to be shared. Nothing can be shared either as there's nothing in common with their transformations and all their parts work differently from their hands to their knees to their ankles to their waists, arms and torsos. Cosmos' transformation looks most similar to Warpath which would explain the leakers saying that it was a retool. Even then however, they share no parts. Warpath also has what looks to be like twice the parts count from all the flaps compared to Cosmos. I take this full quote as it's completely new as he states that there's a certain budget for new molds and that Takara managed to work within that budget to get all the parts needed while only using three mold sprues. It looks it as there's not a lot of individual parts. It looks like there's one mold in green, one mold in yellow and one unpaintable mold also in yellow. Two of the three shades of green are paint, the yellow on the arms and face is paint, both shades of blue are paint, the red is paint, the silver is paint. Which makes me wonder where the flag came from. If it came from one of the molds for Cosmos then it's not white. Meaning that they also used black and white paint. That's a shit ton of colors used on just one figure. There's also quite a bit of paint on him in general.  This guy is just showing him next to one of the other "Minibots" to better get a feel for his overall size. Not to show that Cosmos is a partial of Huffer.
    • In what has been a bit of a trying week, and limits imposed on some social media, I also celebrate 3 years of GotBot Goes Live and being married  (yes, they both coincide) with a Wednesday edition of the live show covering Legacy and Velocitron leaks and a few channel updates!
