I hate you.

I hope it's not a triocon. Arcee , Chromia and Flareup/Flamewar will do. Though if they are separate chars, i wonder what they'll call the gestalt?

Question

Just hypothetical- Reign of Starscream is official and within movieverse and all, but does anyone really think the movie folks will decide against doing something if it contradicts the comic?

The film will do what it wants, it's IDW's job to fit their fiction round the movies rather than the other way round. So if the ROTF claims Starscream's favourite sitcom is Are You Being Served in direct contradiction of that bit in Reign of Starscream where he professes his love for My Two Dads then it's up to IDW to put in a mention at some point that he was lying. Or hope no one notices.

favourite post to date

"It's Starscream!" (not spoiler tagged, as per thread rules, but there are vague spoiler-ish elements to the picture)

SPOILER! (select to read)
All new body markings, not dis-similar (although not identical) to his self-engraving at the end of RoS. The Prime mold also shown seems unchanged (maybe slight amendments to paint, I can't tell), but Starscream's enhanced mold, whilst looking very much like his original, I think is almost entirely a re-working (especially when looking at the mech alive feature). Also, a VAST improvement on the arms...

While I'm at it, Bumblebee edges ever-closer to triple-digits for releases, with this offering that frankly makes me very glad I never bought 'ultimate bee'...

I didn't see anything movie-spoilerish, unless you count Sams' clothes. That's right, this one comes with a Sam figure!

EDIT: There IS a spoiler, see below post

EDIT-EDIT: Straining my eyes, and i'm not seeing it... ?

whatever. you'e been warned. there may or may not be a spoiler in the background. good luck with the eye strain.

Oh yes there is, and it took me a minute to find out why some people were freaking out on Seibertron...

Megatron is in the background, in a new CGI form as well...

Ironhide's toy has appeared: A remold with non-Movie accurate Truck Mode, and a new (hopefully) non-movie accurate weapon.

That new Ultimate BB, well it looks better, but I have to wait and see more before I decide if I get him or not. That SS, he seems to be a new mold, and he looks a whole lot better then the '07 movie version, and since I didnt pick him up then, well I think I will now. That Ironhide, well.....I have the '07 movie version, and since its not to much of a difference, besides that canon on the back of his truck mode, yeah I will pass on that.

Nope. Ultimate Bumbs didn't have a normal interior because that is where the Electronics were housed. Further differences is the fact that Ultimate Bumbs is a lot taller (he's 33 cm right?) and the fact that he still uses that concept-camaro for a vehicle. There are some other details(missiles ed.) but the things they share is that they are both Bumblebee from the Movie. And... Oh shit. NOOOOOOHHHHHH!!!!!.

This is Bumblebee nr. 48.

That's what I thought. Still not enough Bumblebees, though.

Starscream apparently seems to be an entirely new mold. It's still hit-and-miss.

Starscream has hands, let him show you them....
Very nice. I like the odd tribal cybertronian markings, not sure where they come from, but I'm assuming its a comic thing. The jet mode looks much more streamlined, but I'm not 100% sure this is a purchase for me. Oh hell who am I kidding, I have to buy it just because it is Starscream

Well if thats not the ultimate BB, then what size BB is that ? He cant be a deluxe, cuz the little sam figure wouldnt fit, so I wonder. I only said ultimate cuz it only made since for something that big, to have a figure that could fit into it.

So, since when did Alternators haves mini human figures? Unless you mean Binaltech Asterisk and Kiss Players...

Wonder if this is going to be like, umm, the Screen battles sets from the 07 movie, or if it's gonna be a once off?
