Transformers: Studio Series Voyager Class Starscream


Vehicle Mode: Starscream is the Bayverse (or at least he Bumblebee-Movieverse) version of a G1 Cybertronian tetrajet. I can’t decide if I like it or not. It’s certainly colored like Starscream, but he has too much in common with an Earth jet for me see him as a Cybertronian tetrajet. Having said all that, he doesn’t look bad, just not right for what he’s supposed to be. He may very well be movie accurate, but that movie made so little sense, that it almost doesn’t matter.

Robot Mode: In robot mode he is a fairly traditional looking Starscream, definitely a lot more G1 than Bayverse Starscream is supposed to be. I’ll chalk that up to Hasbro failing to make Bumblebee make any sense.

Overall: Starscream is not a bad toy. I kind of like his overall design, but he doesn’t really work for what he’s supposed to be.

Thanks for reading!

    This looks all right but I very much prefer Blitzwing.
