The Transformers franchise has been around since 1984. It has spawned numerous series and alternate universes.It has also has generated two movies - one cartoon and one live action one.
I remember having the die cast versions as a kid. They were made of real metal and were very very classy and collectible. The action figures right now are just made of plastic. Its a good thing that they are cheap but what you pay for is what you get. I am quite disappointed with most action figures nowadays.
Starscream is one of my favorite characters in the series. He is very cunning, ruthless and intelligent. He seeks to always overthrow Megatron and gain the leadership of the Decepticons. He was eventually killed by Galvatron(Megatron reconstructed) later on.
This action figure is good enough for a kid. This is especially true for people who never got exposed to die cast figures. But for people like me who have been, this doesn't cut the mustard.
