|STARSCREAM uses his speed and maneuverability as a jet to launch aerial attacks on the AUTOBOTS. No one can compete with him when it comes to speed and skill in the air. He slices through the sky, chasing the enemy and even endangering any DECEPTICON that gets in his way. As the second in command, he pretends to be loyal to MEGATRON, but is always looking for an opportunity to weaken his leader's rule and take control of the DECEPTICONS.|

Toy Review: Starscream. The name itself is good enough to sell most toys, just like Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee... hey? Where's the Armada Bumblebee?? Anyway, does this toy live up to the name? I say... mostly yes. Actually, if you think back to the original G1 Starscream toy (I have Thundercracker, which is the same mold), this one kicks it's skidplate. This one has more articulation (which isn't hard, since the first one had a whopping 2 points of articluation), cool Armada Powerlinx gimmicks, and sound effects. He looks great in both modes, with my only gripe being that he has a really long backpack sticking out of his back. Essentially, the entire back half of the jet remains in place and just sticks out there like a sore arm (i.e. BIGGER than a sore thumb! ;-). Aside from that, he's pretty cool. One wing comes off and unfolds into a sword, and he's got two BFGs on his shoulders. His Mini-Con, Swindle, is fairly plain, but still decent. One cool gimmick is that Swindle hooks up underneath Starscream's cockpit. When you press the canopy down, a weapon sound is made, and when you press it down all the way, Swindle is "launched" along with a launching kind of sound. Good for play value. If you can get past the huge backpack on this guy, then he's worth every penny. Not a complex transformation, but that's not a strong point with any Armada toy. Overall, I recommend this toy, especially if you can get him on sale like I did. :)
