Starscream is second in command of the Decepticons, but his desire is to usurp Megatron and become leader. He is one of the most iconic characters in the Transformers saga, and he is the fifth Transformer to be made into a Revoltech. Starscream's design here is a mix of his appearances in animation and comic books. He is available from HobbyLink Japan.
The fit and finish on this toy is really nice, and there are some nice touches, such as the fins on the back of the legs, the moving cannons on the arms, and the nice back detail - a view we don't normally get to see on Starscream. However Kaiyodo doesn't give a whole lot else with the toy.
Included accessories are Megatron in gun mode, a few extra hands, and a stand. Thats it. What about Starscream's crown and cape? How about a variant head?
Megatron fits into the right hand of Starscream using one of the variant hands. The shoulder stock separates to allow you to slide the handle into the hand.
There are a few variant hands, nothing remarkable.
The stand is your standard Revoltech stand, aside from the "Tomy" marking on the bottom.
There's nothing wrong with Starscream. He looks great, he poses great, he's a great character. I just wish Kaiyodo did something more with him. Starscream is available from HobbyLink Japan.
