Tycho, Classics Starscream ain't that great, he has a good vehicle mode from the top, but from the side and bottom it loses quality, and bot mode - while probably satisfying to you - is a letdown. Plus, he suffers that milky silver plastic. Rodimus is pretty awesome though.
Lugnutz is probably around that Alternators scale, a little small though, but is a crappy robot, mega-kibble.
That's not how it'll work, characters aren't going to be done at every pricepoint, they'll fill whatever pricepoint they best fit, plus maybe a second size if the first one is too pricey or not a good sculpt.Starscream is actually NEVER seen this way in the script that I read. Hasbro has 13 robots to make for this film and at 4 different size and price ranges, that could be 52 figures. Add 13 more of these Cybertronian modes, and they could have 65!
Anyway, here's a link to the gallery with thse Movie Preview figures:
Both figures make me want to vomit, and the 1 color each thing and Rocklord alt mode, super suckage! Transformers is dead to me!
