TRANSFORMERS Armada Starscream Versus Legacy Version – Review

Transformers in the Legacy line continues to pay homage to previous lines, and Armada Starscream has been given the full Legacy treatment. Captain Kyle compares this new version of the character to the original Starscream from Armada, who is complete with his Minicon Swindle. Which are best for your collection?

Transformers Armada introduced the Minicons, who could provide new abilities to any Transformer to whom they bond (and attach to), whether Autobot or Decepticon. Starscream managed to get Swindle to become his Minicon partner, despite Megatron’s efforts. This voyager-sized toy was one of the larger versions of Starscream and the Legacy line just released a new version. Which is smaller, but still cool. Which is better? You decide.
