Neon green "Keroroscream" miniature bundled with Kerokero Ace magazine

The January issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Kerokero Ace magazine announced on Saturday that the next issue will bundle a neon green "Keroroscream" toy on December 26. Keroro Gunsō is the Japanese name for the science-fiction comedy manga Sgt. Frog, the inspiration for the magazine's name.

The magazine describes the toy's arrival as a "lightning attack by a mysterious super lifeform" — a reference to Sgt. Frog's story about an alien sent to Earth to prepare for an invasion. It is also a nod to the first Transformers show's Japanese title, Tatakae! Chō Robot Seimeitai Transformers (Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers). The toy is a recolored Legends Class toy of the Starscream character from the recent live-action Transformers film trilogy. Like the character, the miniature toy transforms from an F-22 fighter jet to a robot.

The toy comes with special sticker seals for personal customization.
