Fans Hobby Master Builder Seeker (Starscream) News & Discussion Topic

It's about fucking time.

It's just that I don't trust Fans Hobby.

Their figures are either awesome or mediocre, overpriced comparatively or underpriced comparatively, puffy/bloated looking or "standard" looking, too big or too small to fit in anywhere and whatever other wild extremes. There is no in between though it seems. What an odd company. I like almost exactly half of their stuff and hate the same amount lol. At least they never made a mostly "bad" figure before so there's that.

I think that is the case with pretty much all 3P makers. There seems to always be QC issues regardless of the price. Even within a product release, the build quality can vary quite a bit.

Okay, now I'm confused.

Does this switch from Armada Starscream to Energon Starscream or movie Starscream? I mean, why is it also an approximation of an F-22 Raptor? I mean I thought something was off from the first picture as the front end looked off and now I know why. It has the intakes? on the sides for it to look like the F-22. Then the whole back end looks like the F-22 as well. Such an odd choice. But it just goes to show I was kind of right to be skeptical.

You had ONE job. Make ARMADA Starscream. 

You failed so far.

Hopefully they'll show more once they move on from the butter model phase.

I was wondering that too, but was going to wail until we see more of it. Honestly, the original figure needs a lot of improvement and this could be nice if they do it well.

I don't disagree for the most part about Armada Starscream's alt mode. It feels a little unfinished in a way. However, that's what Armada Starscream is. Nothing more, nothing less.

If you're doing Armada Starscream, focus on doing Armada Starscream as it is. If you want to change something up then change up the whole thing like those Predaking and Volcanicus combiners. Don't do some half hearted attempt to keep it looking the same while changing too much about it to actually look the same. The whole silhouette is different. It might as well just be Energon Starscream at this point as you buried the Armada design under it. 

Say they do make an Energon Starscream mold after this, will they change that now? Where do they go from here changing Armada SS to look like Energon SS when the rest of their Armada and Energon homages have been accurate to the originals. How do they justify this compared to the rest of what they've done so far?

Following the jet mode, Fans Hobby transforms with more views of their MB-28 Armada prototype. The unofficial Armada Starscream should be another MP scale offering to go with the other Master Builders in the series. It looks like they managed to remove the huge backpack this mold always has. Check out the first full views of the robot mode for the first looks. - Read the Full News Story
