Mors is Planet X's take on War for Cybertron Starscream. Mors comes packaged in a standard lightweight cardboard box with plastic clamshell interior. Included in the box are Mors, energon club, dual Null Rays, crown, stat card, and instructions.
Mors stands about 7 inches tall in robot mode wich puts in solidly in the Voyager scale.
Mors has a decent mix of colored plastic and paint applications, with most of the paint apps being nice and tight. Articulation is above average. Mors has double jointed elbows as well as some forward and backward movement in his shoulder thanks to his transformation. He also has a wide range of motion in his hips and large feet wich allows for some very dynamic poses, and excellent balance. The only place where his articulation could be better is in his neck joint where he lacks much up and down movement, and his ankles wich have very limited movement.
Mors comes with some very cool accessories. His energon club is one of the cooler weapons I have ever seen, and the inclusion of the crown is just great. The dual null rays can either be held in the hands, or attached to the forearms via 5mm ports.
Being that Mors uses 5mm ports, he complatible with a wide range of MMC, Iron Facroy, Master Made, and Hasbro weapons.
Aside from a few tabs in his chest that come undone sometimes, I really have zero complaints with robot mode. There is a ton of sculpted detail and very thoughtful articulation. In fact I really only hone one complaint with this figure, and that is that the directions are all but useless.
What you see here, is all 42 steps of the transformation listed on a single page. Each step is about 1x1.2 inches big. You can see a dime there in the middle for scale. Needless to say, this does not provide much guidance. On top of that, there are at least 3 missing steps. Thankfully, the transformation really isn't that hard. After I managed to muddle my way through it the first time, I was able to do it from memory in about a minute and a half.
Jet mode really is great, everything tabs together nicely and there are some nice gimmicks such a working landing gear and an opening cockpit.
Weapons can be mounted on the top via the forarms, or the bottom via the wings.
Besides the instructions, the only real drawback to this figure is probably the price tag. At $102.99 its between $12 and $22 more than your average Voyager scale 3rd party bot. If you can get past that nasty price tag though, Mors is definitely a solid release.

Nice review! I just ordered him with Jupiter from RobotKingdom. Would you consider him a strong enough design to merit buying the probable Skywarp & Thundercracker repaints? Or is he more of a one-off in the preferred deco?
At $102.99, I'm good with just Starscream.
