Transformers: Movie Advanced Deluxe Starscream

When this one originally came out, I did not realize he had new weapons, which might be from another toy.  This does constitute new molding for the toy, so I had to pick it up.

Original Mold: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Deluxe Starscream

Vehicle Mode: Starscream looks better than the original version.  I never really liked the tattooed look.  He looks great in gray with some dark gray camouflaged markings.

Robot Mode: I know I’ve seen those weapons before, and it’s driving me crazy that I can’t remember where.  I am not happy with the way he has to mount the weapons on the sides of his arms, making the fact that they are blade weapons useless.  They should have given him two simple identical guns.  That would have worked much better.

Overall: I wouldn’t bother with this one unless you are a foreign mold completist.  (Yes, I am one.)

Thanks for reading!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
