The mold suits Elita more than Starscream to my eyes. The thinner legs make a better looking profile: she doesn't have clown feet like Starscream.
Wings feature a lot of red foil stickers, which I kept catching the edges of when transforming. I can easily see these becoming loose over time.
Mine, like most others it seems, came with the feet on the wrong legs. To be honest I didn't notice at first. The only real difference is it enables her feet to be flat on the floor.
Her wing backpack seems to be connected by only one metal pin, which an enterprising customiser may be able to remove for a more streamlined, albeit partsforming, robot.

Not great not bad. Posing is mostly limited to looking epic.

I sort of feel bad saying this but Elita Infinite has the best combiner butt. Which if you know anything about human biology and how hard combiners struggle to have any sort of shape to them is sort of funny.

Agree with Snaketales that Elita is a much better use of the mould than Starscream. Just wish shed been released first.

Not quite the same tabbing issues as my SS has. Stickers are still a mess and will be replaced on mine by a fabulous looking set just released from Toyhax/Reprolabels. Loving the colours on her too.

I can't help wonder if this toy would've been better without any stickers.

I have seen some photos without stickers and it looks good on first inspection. On second inspection you notice some painting sloppiness. I am starting to think the stickers allow the painting specifications to be less stringent by covering the edges.

Wish we would get a Thundercracker repaint of the Starscream version. Hopefully a better looking head too.

I would love to see someone carve up Elita and Starscream and build a Slipstream.

She's definitely better than Starscream in both jet and robot modes. I like how her feet kind of look like she's wearing runners. It makes her look more athletic. The only drawback I see is that her firearms are crappy compared to Starscream's.
