Coming to us from Baidu, we now have a gallery of in-hand pics for the highly-anticipated Legacy Voyager Armada Starscream!
Screamer is looking very nice in this gallery which shows off his robot & vehicle modes, accessories, and some poses. We also have a size comparison – he looks about the same size as Earthrise Voyager Starscream.
Check it out after the break and let us know what you think!
a new swindle that's too small to fit a port, sure
it could be possible for a new swindle
it's possible that hot shot's port doesn't have enough for the old jolt but there's nothing stopping a possible new one to work with it
also it's entirely possible if the port were on that red part that folds down and tabs into his back, because that's basically the same spot it was on the og toy except it stuck out the back
Waiting for repaint announcements as Selects figures Hasbro….
No he couldn't have, unless you want a port that nobody can use because the area is too narrow to fit anybody.
it isn't weird because starscream has ports under his feet for those weaponizer etc. figures. pretty much every legacy figure has.
hot shot has his mini con port on his rear bumper, starscream could have gotten one between his cannons.
Not really weird. Current Generations toys don't use gimmicks other than the one or maybe two that are linked to the year's line. Right now that means weaponisers/fossilisers/junkions and energon weapons. Few (none?) of the recent re-makes from outside G1 have gimmicks from the toy-lines they were originally in, because that's just not what Hasbro are making here.
Seems like a very unwieldy sword…
Weird he doesn’t have Mini-Con ports anywhere except on the Star Saber. Not ideal, but if you still have Swindle, at least there’s somewhere to put him.
Second that. Mine is quite solid. So it seems to be just standard variability (I recall the way the left arm was visibly loose in Emgo's review).
My first copy had spaghetti legs and arms, new copy I got from Amazon is pretty good aside from his left arm feeling a bit loose.
Weird, mine has really good joints.
Those that have said that this figure has loose joints are absolutely correct. He feels awful in hand.
I had a problem with looseness too which was a massive bummer on a figure I was hugely anticipating, but after tightening those up with some floor polish I'm having a really great time with this guy. Really think they could have designed some elements better (like how certain bits tab together in robot mode) but overall it's a great figure once those tolerances are tightened.
Opened mine a little bit ago, and holy crap I love him!
I'll take all the repaints Hasbro, and please PLEASE PLEASE give him a heavy orange Jhiaxus remold like you did in Generations. As beautiful as that design is at Deluxe size, it'll completely blow me away at Voyager size.
It definitely wasn't being in the rain, as mine wasn't at all exposed to the rain and I have most of the same issues. Seems like a batch issue, or possibly an overall mold issue.
Hasbro is hellbent to raise profits by 50% in three years in the middle of a recession. Better hope that it just doesn't get worse.

Mine is also a tiny bit loose/floppy. I don’t think it’s bad enough to be a problem now but will see if it is in the future.
The figure looks great, especially in robot mode next to Siege and ER but it’s definitely a lighter figure and definitely smaller in jet mode compared to the other two.
Not gonna lie, I am mildly disappointed over the lightness and looseness. SS86 Ironhide arrived last week and he’s rock solid.
Hasbro, stop with the cost cutting. You’re treading dangerously here.
Regardless, I’m very pleased overall and to finally pose him with other versions of SS. Bring on the repaints! (With tighter joints!)

I like him, though mine has loose shoulders and the leg transformation going to jet mode is kinda fiddly.
I got mine Friday, overall I actually like it a lot. There’s just a few things that bother me:
– Neck ball joint is right at the back of the head so looking to the side in any way looks odd.
– Wrists have the hinge going the right way for sword wielding poses, but the hinged panel stops it from moving more than a tiny bit.
– Right thigh mushroom peg works itself out whenever you move it.
– Waist swivel is much looser and easier to move than either hip joint or thigh swivel.
I do wish he had the red paint on the tip of his cannons, has anyone found a good paint match for that? I didn’t think it would bug me as much as it does
The lack of Swindle doesn’t bother me, but if DNA offers a set that includes a new back plate with a little detachable Swindle car, a painted wing sword, better articulated hands and maybe even new feet I’d be in.
The one copy I initially saw at a store is slightly discolored on his right hip panel. The one I brought don’t have that problem.
