This is another reissued version of Starscream. It’s a Japanese version and the box indicates "22", however, another "newer" Japanese version is coming out soon under the TF book-style collection #9. Thirdly, there's the Toys R Us version which I have too and will compare to this version.
This #22 Japanese reissue is exactly the same as the Toys R Us version. The rubber nose tip, nasty sticker eye, and legs tend to bend in syndrome are all there. The box and instruction is in Japanese and the box doesn’t fold on the right side like the Toys R Us version. The Toys R Us version comes with nothing but instructions and the infamous long missiles. This version comes with a Starscream card and ALL the missiles are original length. The sticker eye is very bad and should be cut into two separate pieces, which I did on both Starscreams. I’m not sure if the soon to be released "another" Japanese Starscream reissue will USE the same robot but just with new packaging like the book-style box.
Overall this figure is decent, the quality definitely is not what it use to be.
