    I’m sorry, but Armada Starscream will always have a special place in my hart; Crusty voice and all. But you are right, Prime Starscream is FABULOUS!

    The reason us children of the 80s liked him was because geez IDK he was like Cobra Commander from GI Joe .... I'll leave now 😉🙊✌

    He's a bit more fleshed out in the original comic run, especially the UK comics, but yep you're mostly right.

    Watching G1 right now, so goofy but better than Michael Bay movie as a kid.
    I think kids are not soffisticated nowadays, this is not the correct term they're really ignorents, I'm a drawing teacher and they have a poor knowlege of vocabulary, they don't know some simple terms like what is a "torticolis". I'm not from US, I'm not an English speaker so I'm talking about other countries I do't see them really soffisticated for watch a PC cartoon like SU.

    I swear I remember an episode where Starscream joins the Autobots....I'm not sure how long he stays with them, but I know it's not too long, as he ends the series as a Decepticon.

    Somebody could easily rewrite starscream and megatron’s dynamic into an abusive relationship.

  • metroidfannumber1
    metroidfannumber1 19 days ago

    i think it's because megatron appreciates that kind of ruthless aggressive behavior so everyone in the decepticons would also be as ruthless and keep himself a sharp and powerful leader.

    The Japanese otaku community has a phrase for the power-hungry characters never succeeding yet being kept around trope. It's called ニューリーダー病 (New Leader Disease) and is obviously based on Starscream.

    "One of the few series that weren't made in America? Um, do some research, maybe? Once the US gave up on Transformers after "The Rebirth" (lol) Japan made a bunch of series continuing the series. (Deep breath) Scramble City, Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory, Beast Wars, Beast Wars 2, and all the senseless crap after that.

  • Erik Brock

    Starscream was able to come back as an Energon ghost because he's strong with the Douche Side.
    For me the carte blanch aspect got me into the toys. When i was a wee lad a black-trailer Optimus was discovered at an Unclaimed Baggage store and the whining and begging began, but ultimately I only ended up with about half a dozen(most of which i've bought modern homages to. so that's one thing to thank Age of Extinction for), and that was all they ever were to me, really cool toys. I saw The Movie "in college with friends yaknoweh" and I'm glad i did because YOU GOT THE TOUCH, and seeing the Death Star turn into a giant robot is pretty fucking rad. If I'd seen it as a kid it would have definitely gatewayed me into the rest of the franchise, but the only series i've seen all the way through is Prime, which i marathoned with my step-son a few years ago when it was on Netflix, and it sounds like the force was strong with me that day because the only series that gets compared to it is Beast Wars, which i have not seen but may check out one day. It kinda left both of us spoiled for everything else actually, though thankfully you don't have to love the show to love merch. Doesn't help that all the live-action movies are cynical studio products, though i will admit that Michael Bay has a good eye. He would make a great cinematographer or assistant producer. The first time we see the autobots in the first movie it is genuinely epic. Plus Age Of Extinction gave us some ole' Cube-Cab, which is my nostalgic favorite, and i .

    Starscream has been a favorite of mine since the original show. His character as a whole just epitomizes the meaning of being a Decepticon. He's too strong to let him join the other side but 150% untrustworthy.

    IDW did the best version of starscream.
    He's dangerous not because he is the strongest or the fastest, but because you know he's gonna fight dirty.
    He is also a very effective manipulating schemer, making his power grabs and survival believable.

    Wait, correct me if i'm wrong but I thought Armada was rushed and butchered for Cartoon Network with a terrible English dub as well. When I was a kid watching the Spanish version of Armada I remember it being pretty good. And Starscream did not sound so awful, in fact his voice sounded quite good

    Bay Starscream actually did have the desire to take leadership from Megatron. That's why he's running the show in his stead at the beginning of ROTF. He immediately instates himself as leader right after Megs goes down in TF1

    What? No mention of Transformers: Cybertron Starscream? He was the only one that well and truly succeeded in pulling one over on Megatron! He WON. He got the sweet-ass crown and wore it for EPISODES! He fought their God! And got his ass kicked! It was great!
    More love for Transformers Cybertron!

    My favorite depiction of Starscream is in the Robots In Disguise cartoon. He somewhat steers away from the stereotypical version of his character. Which is basically a mustache twirling cowardly schemer who runs away(I.E General Grievous in ROTS and the Clone Wars 2008 cartoon series).

    You never asked the biggest question, why when transforming into a tiny gun - does Megatron nearly always trust Starscream to fire him? And having done that, why didn't Starscream just jump on him?
