Star-Burst is a third-party Transformer homage to Generation 1 Starscream.
The Star-Burst mold was designed by Cassy Sark.
Posted the first pictures of the Star-Burst prototype and art on their Facebook page in July 2013.
Star-Burst was released in June 2014.
The Good Morning, Cybertron! podcast for July 29th, 2013 discussed the iGear Star-Burst in the news. One of the hosts said me met the designer at TFcon 2013, and that there were plans to remold it into many other jet characters.
The Fwooshcast podcast for August 10th, 2013 talked about Star-Burst in the news.
Star-Burst does not take his title as the leader of the Seekers lightly, nor does he let anyone he meet forget his title.
Along with his most-trusted subordinates Sky-Wind and Thunder-Wrath, Star-Burst volunteered for an experiment under the singular gaze of a Cyclopean scientist. These experimental operations were the first of their kind, and focused on their very Cyber-souls. While the experiments proved a success for some, Star-Burst was disappointed to find out that his seemingly failed, offering him no additional powers or abilities. No matter how bizarre the tests he put himself through, there seemed to be nothing special about him. This left him bitter, which in time turned into outward resentment towards his fellow seekers with their new-found special abilities.
Little did he know, his experiment was the most successful of them all, and he had actually ended up being granted the gift of immortality, but with no way of knowing about his new “gift” this ability remained hidden for millennia.Had he only pushed Horror Monarch a little further, he would have surely discovered his ability sooner.
