And with that being said, here we have G2 Starscream MOSC.Transformers: Generation 2 was the first Transformers toy revamp, relaunching the line in 1993, two years after the last of the original Transformers figures were off the shelves in the United States. It began with recolored versions of Generation 1 toys such as the ones shown on the back of the card (G2 Constructicons, Ramjet, Jazz, Dinobots, Optimus)........
.........but soon consisted entirely of new molds such as G2 Megatron,( CLICK HERE ) made for the line.
Generation 2 saw more-or-less simultaneous release in the US and European markets, but Japan would not start the line (or even have any Transformers product at all on shelves, for that matter) until 1995.
Starscream (Decepticon Jet, 1993)
Left & right fists, left & right wings, left & right tail fins, left & right tail wings, landing gear, 2 missile launchers, 3 missiles, sound/light energy unit
|Left & Right Fists|
|2 wings, 2 tail fins, 2 tail wings|
|2 Missle Launchers|
|Sound/light energy unit (Still works perfectly)|
The electronic box lights up with the press of either button, and emits electronic "machine gun" or "jet engine" noises. In robot mode, the box attaches to Starscream's back; in jet mode, it plugs into his tail-end.
|Still arrow straight packaging.|
|Arrow straight.....even after 22 years|
|2 points is better than nothing.....heck, they only gave G2 Megs 4 points.|
|Still "bone white" after all this time as well.|
In all actuality, if you already have G1 Starscream you really would have no need to get buy this particular version of him as it really is no improvement on the original. A
For myself, the overall artwork and full display packaging is what really sells this figure for me.....that, and it's Starscream.
Wouldn't you agree?
