Starcream was certainly more than "Cobra Commander trapped inside a robot's body". Once being a scientist, he found out he enjoyed warfare more. And his intelligence and cunning lended to him being a good warrior, but like Grimlock, he was too overconfident in his own abilities. And, like Grimlock, he mistakenly thought he was more capable of leading their faction more efficiently than their current leader. While having the intellect, he didn't have the common sense or wisdom to get the job done.

Transformers is (arguably) the most successful cartoon ever with a continuously popular TV show and toy line for over 15 years. Transformers first aired and released its initial toy line in 1984. The original Transformer series lasted a whole three seasons and a few season four episodes as well as a full length feature film in 1985 before it came to an end in 1987. In 1996, Transformers came back in their freshest incarnation show - Beast Wars! Beast Wars experimented with a new idea of transforming animals rather than vehicles with a more dynamic CGI 3D animated show. Many die-hard Generation 1 fans originally scoffed at the new idea, but Transformers winning formula eventually succeeded in converting old fans with the new show sporting numerous Generation 1 references. Beast Wars lasted three seasons until it ended in 1999 with the toy line still going strong today.
