Earlier this morning, our friends at Entertainment Earth emailed to let all of you know at Seibertron.com about a new pre-order for a Studio Series 72 Starscream action figure.

This Voyager Class version of Starscream, from the live-action Bumblebee Movie, features this backstabbing villain in his Cybertronian mode from the Movie Universe, which retains his familiar G1 color scheme and a normal (coherent?) looking robot mode than the fictionally-later Bayverse Starscream which had a tan color scheme and a more "gorilla-with-chicken-legs" robot mode.

As noted by several keen-eyed Seibertronians, this new Starscream is a heavy retool / remold of Studio Series Voyager Class Blitzwing. Both figures share several parts such as the chest cockpit, shoulders and other parts.

Seeker fans may be left wondering how long until the inevitable recolors are revealed for the other Seekers like Skywarp, Thundercracker and possibly others, though it's possible that those never see the light of day as well such as Action Master Starscream and the Energon and Cybertron toy lines which never saw proper recolors of Starscream into his Seeker brothers (Action Master Thundercracker excluded for obvious reasons due to his obnoxious unfamiliar colors).

The listing on EntertainmentEarth.com states that the figure will be released in July 2021, so fans will have to wait about 7 more months to get this exciting new version of Starscream. In addition to a single figure listing for Starscream, there is also a shared case wave that comes packed 2 Starscreams with 1 Studio Series 86 Voyager Class Hot Rod.

Product Description: This Studio Series 72 Voyager Class Transformers: Bumblebee-inspired Starscream figure converts from robot to tetrajet mode in 31 steps. Remove backdrop to showcase Starscream in the Cybertron Falls scene. In the Cybertron Falls scene from Transformers: Bumblebee, the Autobot resistance retreats to escape the planet as Cybertron falls under Decepticon control. Starscream and the seekers destroy the Autobot launchpad in an effort the prevent their escape. Pose the figure out with the included Null Ray accessories and imagine recreating this classic movie moment!


Without further ado, check out the listing from EntertainmentEarth.com as well as some pictures which we mirrored below for your convenience.

Now that I'm seeing more of the designs from the movie I'm feeling better about the looks of this figure. Ya know if you want to cross the streams Starscreams jet mode looks like the smallest jet from the Snap Ships line, kinda cool.

So they were also working on making one of the "Looks more like one of the retro skins from the ROTF video game than an actual movieverse character" Bungledbee designs. Maybe they phoned in some of the work on SS86 because of being busy with this guy, then.

I'm going to be salty about that derailing GEEWUN-where-it-doesn't-belong hijack of a movie until the day we get a continuation of the actual Bayverse storyline.

If you look more closely, this figure actually shares nothing with SS Blitzwing aside from possible engineering. they have very similar shoulders and faux upper cockpit, but it’s not the same

Seriously. Normal? Coherent? The word is humanoid. Or G1 inspired.

Starscream looks nice. He’s definitely influenced by Blitzwing, but yeah, it appears it's a completely new mold with some shared engineering and an overall robot mode design. Think I’ll skip it.

As for HotRod. So much drama with the faux hood/chest. He looks pretty good though. Its making the $29.99 price tag much more palatable.

Anyway, that makes me wonder, in the past 15 years, who’s done it better? I think outside of masterpiece 2.0 this is pretty much what Hot Rod should look like.

Classics I think is still an excellent Hot Rod representation with some interesting features. While I do love Animated, its a very specific aesthetic. I think the weakest is still PotP. But it still looks very nice in Robot Mode, it just is a bit limited due to the evolution gimmick.

There’s still that commander class Rodimus that’s been rumored to be coming in Kingdom.

I love Blitzwing but this SS looks like a bag of spare parts. That jet mode is completely awful, the Siege SS jet mode is a much better interpretation of the tetra jet design.

Agreed 100%.

I may be a Starsimp, but this SS may be one more Starscream that I'll be skipping. Like with the PotP voyager and several Cyberverses.

Had to look up “Snap Ships.” Those are actually very fun, and cool looking. Personally I’m getting T-16 Skyhopper vibes from Starscream.

The only thing that’s really off putting to me about him is how loud the colors are. The red is fine, and I can handle the bright yellow cockpit, but I do wish the blue was toned down. If it had been more muted, I think it would be a small, but very noticeable improvement. Maybe not screen accurate though?

Hmm, not sure on Screamer there. The robot mode is OK, if a bit wide in the torso. But the colours are not doing it any favours and the jet mode, whilst roughly on point to the movie model, is a bit of a hot mess. That said, whilst I wouldn't buy it as Starscream I might get it as Skywarp or (green) Thrust. I think I prefer it over Blitzwing but that's not saying much seeing how badly they blundered on him.

Yeah, I normally don't pay attention to people dropping in their bayverse hate comments (its usually just trolling or whining), but I certainly don't appreciate seeing this obvious passive aggressive hate from the editor.

Starscream would need a head swap for my tastes as the busyness doesnt quite work for the figure so a stickered up Blitzwing slightly wins out. Will be interesting to see a ThreeA version of Starscream which can probably capture it right.

The editor is also the site owner so he gets a free pass to say whatever he wants in his own house. ;)

He's certainly allowed to, but the opinionating and also making factually false claims such as the figure sharing parts with Blitzwing do compromise the journalistic integrity of the article.

Classics I think is still an excellent Hot Rod representation with some interesting features.

I'm one of the few who also likes the Classics toy a whole lot. Although I think Studio will finally unseat it. The actual car hood is hidden really well and the end result is fantastic. So I'll be happy to add it to my collection.

The yellow part in vehicle mode bugs me, but it's something that can be fixed with a sticker.

PotP has some weird proportions that keep me from liking it.

Jet mode looks like an experiment to see if the FoC Seeker design could support an undercarriage that rivals its wingspan. In the thumbnail, I thought his legs were sticking out for a gerwalk mode. Just odd enough that it does no live action or animated movie's aesthetic any justice or detriment, so any such debate around this particular toy feels extra pointless.

Easy pass to save room for SS '86 crumbling-to-ash Starscream...someday.
