"conquest is made"
the MW line lacks any fiction except for vague toy bios, so the characters are open to interpretation. Starscream in particular is an oddity, since his toy is dark and massive and expressionless, everything Starscream isn't. But it occurred to me that the original cartoon left him as a ghost (yes, a robot ghost) who could possess other Transformers. And it's also been established that TF corpses sometimes turn to shades of grey...
