Transformers Generations Armada Starscream

On with the Transformers obsession here at the Super-DuperToyBox! As a novice in the aforementioned realm, character familiarity is extremely limited for me, but I did vaguely remember Starscream from the '80s. I know little of this Decepticon, and even less about the Armada story arc, purchased him by merely his aesthetic merit. This "Thrilling 30" Generations figure came with an IDW comic, the cover of which features a fantastic rendering of this action figure by Phil Jimenez & Romuld Fajardo. Armada Starscream's rocket launcher can be locked atop his shoulders, as seen in the art, and can be a little clunky to operate. My other complaint being the head not locking into anything solidly, Starscream is still a cool figure, with a great little jet mode that's solid. Check out the video:

Starscream has pretty good light piping coming through the eyes, and can fold his energon swords for storage under his wings. He's a little short, but pretty well articulated. This character and action figure seems to be favored by many a collector, most of whom claim Starscream's improved dignity and assertiveness in the Armada story.

  1. Nice! He doesnt look too bad at all.

  2. The Takara import version used a darker red plastic, making him look more like the source material. Overall I was impressed with this figure too.
