Gotta love stillettoes and what appears to be a pair of quivers on a Transformer.

It looks very anime.
Those side-dealies are cool, but I don't know about the stillettoes.

I know Starscream is a diva, but they don't have to be so literal.

Look, let's not start that whole thing again about the gender possibilities of Transformers...

Still, nice Mahno's. Didn't notice them before. Must be a b***er to walk in and I have to admire any jet who can manage it. I honestly think that I prefer the original design, sans Robin Hood accessories.

Besides the stillettoes, I prefer him to the original mould.

I prefer the legs as before, not with parts of the thing up on his hips now. Makes it bulky.

And he rather had the high-heels thing going already anyway...just not so bad.

Not exactly.

They were originally intended to be Fuel And Sensor Packs, but diring the F-15E's developement in the mid '80s they changed it to fuel only.
So, they're conformal fuel tanks, giving the Strike Eagle phenomenal range.

I'm willing to bet this (re)mold will be Skywarp (or Thundercracker)...
Look at the head changes and compare them to the IDW versions and the expressions they adorned in the toon.

Starscream the grey F-15C Eagle air superiority fighter (1st mold) and Skywarp the dark blue/gray F-15E Strike Eagle multi-role fighter/interdictor.
Though the strange thing is that they kept him a single seater, so it isn't technically an existing plane, nor the F-15E.

Notice the changed rear landing gear and different feet transformation.
The hip kibble, which now includes the empenage, is an interesting change.
