    So I finally acquired a little bit of spending money and I'm a bit behind the times, as I finally came across Alternity Starscream and Skywarp... I only have the cash for one of them and I don't know which one to pick, so I need a bit of help deciding. They both have flaws to my preference. I like starscream's robot mode color, but I'm not too fond of his head sculpt, and his alt mode color just seems plain to me. I really like Skywarp's alt mode color and head sculpt, but I'm not too big a fan of his robot mode color (I don't like so much dark in a fig's robot mode) so I'm trying to weigh my pros and cons and need help with it.. So if you own these two or know someone who does, I'd really like some opinions. I'm leaning toward Starscream, but what stops me is the head sculpt.. Then I'll lean toward Skywarp and I'm iffy because of the dark coloration in bot mode.

    Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

    If I could get one, I'd grab Screamer.

    Also, this would be better as a poll.

    Sorry man, didn't realize it. It is one of the options you can choose when making the thread. You will get the hang of it the more you mess with it.

    Thanks that really helps alot now that I can see them both at the same time lol.. And what did you do with Skywarp's "wings" just positioned them vertically? It's still a tough call though lol

    Yeah.. At first I had no intention on getting the alternity figures.. And so far these are the only 2 I care for.. I thought I would be done buying until next year, what with after getting hasbro's animated rodimus and preordering the takara version.. And then waiting on MP Rodimus.. By I was wrong as soon as I saw some reviews on these guys lol

    Personally, I don't really want either.

    If I get one, it'd be Skywarp.

    Oh ok... Well... I think I'm sold on Skywarp, after watching Peaugh's review on him and Starscream, Skywarp was the favored of the 2, and that guy knows his stuff lol.. I'll just wait to get starscream after I get rid of some stuff.

    And also the ball joints his doors are connected to.. Do they have problems comming off during transformation? And would the nail polish trick take care of that?

    yes they are extremely loose and pop off very easily during tranformation but once they are positioned where you want them in both modes they are secure, i think its just such a tight fit that when moving parts around during tranformation they get kinda...pinched off..if that makes sense.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the designs, but after see those pictures, I do have to admit that Skywarp looks pretty sharp! I definitely prefer him of the two.

    I have both.

    I have to say that Starscream's head sculpt looks a good deal better in person than in any photo I've yet seen.

    BUT- I still like my Skywarp much more.
