Hasbro Transformers Shattered Glass Starscream Action FigurePreviously a BotCon exclusive, Shattered Glass "Heroic Decepticon" Starscream which brings us a mold from 2019, but now in Jetfire colors with a nice blue sword. Long-haul fans may remember the Transformers club and convention doing this toy before - twice! - using a Cybertron/Galaxy Force mold the first time and a Combiner Wars mold for the second go-round. He's popular! While not nearly as scuffed as the paint on the Siege Starscream [FOTD #2,081] mold, it does cost $9 more thanks to a comic book and a bonus weapon. Is it worth the upcharge given Hasbro has sold us this mold nearly a dozen times? Probably, because it's neat, and you'll buy it anyway.

I assume by now you've bought this mold as one of multiple Starscreams - or Thundercracker, Red Wing, Skywarp, Sparkless Seeker, Ion Storm, Acid Storm, Nova Storm, Hotlink, or whoever else - and you know it's pretty good. The bulk of the robot action figure serves as undercarriage junk for a tetrajet/Colonial Viper that takes inspiration from older sci-fi designs, but it more or less something new. Starscream's eyes are light clear blue with an unblocked window on the back so they can sing if you shine light behind them! They're nice. The coloring works better than a lot of the darker light-up eyes we've had over the years, mostly because under bright light they look good and in a dim room, they also look good. Screamer's scowly face is painted light grey with a white plastic helmet, and the bulk of this toy is molded in white or clear blue plastic. Articulation is just as good as always, and the teeny tiny red Decepticon face on the chest is a nice touch.

Unsurprisingly, he holds his weapons well and looks great. I would've loved Decepticon faces on his wings, but it was not meant to be - at least not when you're looking at him in robot mode. Even though this mold is three years old, it still works great with double-jointed elbows and a surprisingly flexible knee joint. And rocker ankles. With lots of sculpted detail. While not all the white plastics match perfectly, it's still a very nice looking figure and should remain so if you keep it out of sunlight. And most other light. Dark closets, people, they exist for a reason.

Transformation is the same as it ever was - there are slots and tabs, and if you get them aligned, you get a nice little vehicle.

The swords plug in the ship mode nicely, as do the cannons. The coloring is a bit weird with lots of white on the nose, making it seem like something out of an old comic book. It has no moving parts to speak of, so it just looks cool. Or cool-adjacent, and you can see his knees poking out. I still like it - it's still fun to play with after having transformed oh so many of these.

I don't think we're getting our money's worth with this - it shouldn't cost 20% more for a couple of plastic swords - but it is neat, and will probably be sold out, and then you can't get one, and then they won't run more. That's really what this is all about - it's a collectible, and you're being charged accordingly. If you're not sick of your Starscreams and love bright white with red, go ahead and get this one too. The swords are really cheery. I can't complain too much other than price - they did a very good job delivering exactly what I would have wanted out of a figure like this.
