Transformers Prime Deluxe Class Starscream Part 6 [Final]

Secret mode

More action poses of Transformers Prime's Deluxe Class Starscream's articulation design after the previous posting. ^^

As shown in the previous posting, the neck joint can provide a very wide upward tilt for the head that makes this aerial attack pose looks really good. ^^

Supported using Soul Stage Act 3 Action Support Clear Type:

A revision of Starscream's jet mode not shown since Part 3. ^^

Standing pose using the cardboard platform shown in Part 1. ^^

Comparison with Voyager Class Optimus Prime in robot mode from the same series.

Comparison in vehicle mode.
You can see how compact Starscream is. ^^

With Legion Class Cyberverse Arcee in robot mode from the same series.

Just for the fun of it, a comparison with MG Gundam AGE-1 Normal. ^^

This is really fun Transformers figure to play with. ^^ I really enjoyed its transformation sequence, as well as the flexible articulation design that enables tons of action poses as shown in this and the previous postings.

Comparing Starscream with Voyager Class Optimus Prime, the latter is definitely a great figure because, well, he's the Autobots boss and is always cool in whatever contemporary incarnations. ^^ The size of Voyager Class figures is another huge attraction of Optimus. This Deluxe Class Starscream however has really impressive engineering and design points, especially for its transformation design, which in turn gives the figure many great articulation points. You could say the same for Optimus Prime, but it's kind of expected for a larger size Voyager Class figure. I suppose that engineering perk can be experienced more on Starscream due to its size. In other words, the overall quality of the figure exceeds expectations and norms for a Deluxe Class release in my opinion. ^^

Even more interesting, there's a hidden mode (sort-of) for Starscream, but only if you know Macross: ^^

Gerwalk mode without ...

... or with the arms unfolded is possible. ^^

As I said, this figure really exceeds expectations and norms in terms of its final outcome. ^^

All reviews on Transformers Prime Deluxe Class Starscream:
Part 1: Hidden gem
Part 2: Sleek but not so slim
Part 3: Joints on joints
Part 4: That smirk
Part 5: Transformation helps articulation? or articulation helps transformation
