Those packages are so lame.
I frequently get two figures at a time, one to open and one to display in package, but these figs i'll just buy to open.

Goodness, that sounds like it could get expensive over time! But I digress, I'm not liking these too much myself. Very Happy Meal-ish.

I'm propably in minority, but I really like the Starscream design.

IIRC there's not mass shifting in the movie? So instead of being ridiculously large in robot mode or very small plane, he's sort of compressed (wrong word?) vertically making him a bit bulky -> a bit like gorilla -> me like.

I think we're looking at the new standard packaging. It's red to attract small children - and has potential as Valentine's Day offerings for those significant others to give to the TF fan in their life

Why does Starscream look like he's laying an egg?

I am really liking the sheer range of the Movie line, although I am not inclined to pick up multiple versions of the same character. Still, I also have no intention of buying the most expensive version of each chap either, and so, likeing the G2 feel of these guys, I think I could end up with one or two (Brawl looks very nice, and so does Prime [dash it all - other than that CyberSlammer one they all look good!])



Still, the Fast Action Battler style seems to suit some (Jazz, Prime, Brawl) better than others (Ironhide, Ratchet, Starscream [although many would argue no style could make him look good, I do like what I take to be the Voyager version a lot more than this!]).

:rolleyes:

I like FAB Jazz. He doesn't have those stupid bunny rabbit ears whot ruined his deluxe toy. His head looks more like the concept stuff we saw.

I'm afraid I'll end up having to buy the Starscream fig's just because they are Starscream...how pathetic and sad is that?

But this one actually doesn't look THAT bad imho.

i still think this ironhide looks awful, i prefer the larger size where his chest kinda opens up in the middle.
