Everybody gets one…
ok but probably one of the best/worst things about Transformers Armada is that the Autobots just let the kids come with them all the freakin time. There isn’t a whole lot of “blah blah this is dangerous blah you can’t come” like in most of the other tv series. Like there’s never any adults around and the Autobots are going into potentially very dangerous situations for the kids and even Optimus is like “sure why the fuck not”. they even let 5 kids go into fuckin outer space for like a week. like it was no big deal
Vote Armada Optimus for the most-fucks-not-given-for-human-safety guardian
one time the kids knitted Starscream a blanket
if you don’t think this is number one scene in transformers history then first of all how dare you
but really am I the only one displeased with Starscream’s new colors??
They want to bring back Armadascream. Just as G1IDWScream was getting competent. Also I like red on starscreams, but I like to balamce it with white or black. Yellow is just trashy on him.
On the one hand, I’m happy that the Armada!Starscream look is getting such a major reference in a contemporary comic, much in the same way I’m delighted RiD brought in Skybyte. Goofy as some of the Japanese series could be, it’s great to see that their stand-out elements aren’t being forgotten. That’s what a good franchise should do.
But, on the other hand, I liked IDW Starscream’s old look a lot. And let’s be honest, it wasn’t the orange and shoulder wings that made Armada!Starscream interesting, it was his complexity of character
and his warm fuzzy secret heart so thirsty for wuv. And I just don’t think this particular incarnation of Starscream is going to go down that road. Because, to be frank, IDW!Starscream comes off as really inconsistent to me.
Iconic imagery is great, but what makes a character stick in someone’s mind is what churns underneath.
Only one mech can say for certain that he has been inside Waspinator, and that mech is Starscream…
sometimes I actually consider watching Armada again
There’s not enough that can be said for the power of this scene, in my opinion.
People compare Starscream’s last stand to the death of Dinobot, but there’s an important distinction. Dinobot knew what he had to do… and he had to win.
Starscream? There was no “winning” in Starscream’s case. There would be no final moments where he could say “Did I do it? Did I save everyone in the end?” There was nothing but failure destined for him.
But then, that failure was what he knew he had to do. He had to take Galvatron by the horns (heh), challenge his reality, and make him aware of the danger that was staring them all in the face. And in doing so, he had to stand up to the person who’d spent his entire existence brutally showing Starscream that he wasn’t good enough.
And the only way to do this is to agitate a sleeping giant, and quite literally throw his life away. There is no “A WARRIOR STILL.” There is no “stick against a Transmetal.” Just a lonely, cast off Decepticon warrior whose last moments are raging at the heavens, and then an all consuming, absolute death.
Keep in mind, I’m not disparaging Dinobot at all. “Code of a Hero” is a great story, and one of the best Transformers stories ever written. All I’m doing is highlighting the contrast between two poignant sacrifices and death scenes.
Just. It blows my mind a bit. Starscream knew he wasn’t going to make it out of this alive. He knew he’d never get any peace of mind over the problems that plagued him, and yet, he did it anyway. He had no chance. His null rays don’t even reach Unicron before pittering out.
But he did it anyway.
I have too many emotions…

Manchildren complaining about how having shirtless men in anime threatens their fragile heterosexuality is the funniest thing. The second funniest thing is the idea that women somehow ruin anime or don’t buy anime. Ah, the mantears, they flow strong and sweet.
ModT- This is great; also I checked out your blog and your other art is great too.
I dunno… Pretty sure Starscream turned me into a robo-sexual long ago. Then again, I’m a woman, so perhaps the media-influence-synapses in my brain are different. More empirical testing is clearly necessary.
a horde of tiny robots running towards you and hugging your legs and overwhelming you
I think you mean minicons hugging the legs of armada starscream and never letting go
Oh you mean
He loved them so much… and they loved him so much…
Okay but his hand is bigger than her whole fuckin’ head and it made me crack up and this is why I’m single.
Also, after bee died, he was supposed to lean in to her and say “One down.”
Cut. For time and pacing, I’m sure.
Aw… That would have been good to keep in. Surely it couldn’t have taken up that much screentime…
On the subject of Armada!Starscream, I’ve noticed that pixiv artists really seem to fancy drawing grown-up Alexis and Starscream getting married… Full on white gown for Alexis, flower petals floating down and everything.
Not that I have any complaints, mind you, I just think it’s interesting how multiple people go for the same subject…

They’re the same as the one I posted earlier, but much clearer.
Gotta have it
My life’s quest has been to find genuinely good, well written, in-character Starscream/Alexis fanfiction
The road is long and arduous… But someday…
