The latest figure in Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Transformers line is Starscream, and she is now available to pre-order. The figure will cost ¥18,700 or $180, depending on which store you order from. Shipping is set for April 2024 for orders from Japan. It will ship between May and July 2024 worldwide if ordered from Sideshow.
Originally announced in July 2023, with a painted prototype shown off earlier in August 2023, the Bishoujo Transformers Starscream figure was sculpted by Tsubame with design work by Shunya Yamashita. She stands at 8.46″ tall upon a stand shaped like the Decepticon logo. Her wings are reimagined as an over-the-shoulder gym bag with a Decepticon keychain. While the figure is not poseable, deluxe orders from the Kotobukiya store come with an additional faceplate with a pleading expression.
There’s a video showing it from different angles.
