  1. Interesting. As far as I know there was not an original G1 Starscream with an orange cockpit. It was more of a smoky grey on the toy. There was a reissue maybe 8 or 9 years ago that did have an orange cockpit, but that reissue was in anime colors (the blue and grey were much lighter) and some of the stickers were replaced with tampographs. I wonder if this was customized at some point by harvesting an orange cockpit from a Thundercracker or Skywarp. That might explain why it is loose and doesn’t stay up.

    • Hugh, thank you for pointing out the canopy. I cannot believe I never took notice to this. After doing some research and digging around, it turns out this Starscream is an early 1980’s Diaclone KO: http://www.fredsworkshop.com/frames.html Although I can’t be certain, I can’t find any information to debunk that this isn’t a KO.

      Thank you so much for your insight Hugh. I’ll be adding a post to the blog with some detail about this.
