    Yeah, just what the title says. Do we know if PRID deluxe Skywarp is a Takara exclusive or should we expect Hasbro to be putting one out as well? I haven't heard and didn't know if anyone had a clue?

    I've heard nothing. I would recommend going for the Takara release if you know you want one - chances are by the time we hear of a Hasbro release (or confirmation it is not happening) Takara's will be long gone.

    As they said, order early and avoid disappointment.

    I want to like that set, but the colors they chose... I just don't get it. BB with baby blue stripes? WTF?

    That's pretty funny. I looked into release dates, and the Masterpiece was the most recent US Skywarp released. It's been over two years now!

    It seems that way, but we did get Classics Skywarp (w/ Ultra Magnus), Animated Voyager Skywarp, TFTM Walmart exclusive Voyager Skywarp, Masterpiece Skywarp and, and... that's all I can think of right now.

    If anything, Thundercracker torments us more.

    We've been pushed down the proverbial stairs when it comes to getting Skywarps stateside.

    I'd like to order this guy but would prefer a Thundercracker to go with him.

    Let's see so we're missing from Hasbro Classicverse legends of SW & TC, Animated Voyager TC, PRID SW (TC doesn't count since Takara doesn't have one either), DOTM SW, Masterpiece TC (old version obviously). Anything else I miss?

    I'd like to think that if Hasbro were to produce a Skywarp for Prime, that he'd be an entirely different design than Starscream.

    If Skywarp actually becomes a major character on the show, I actually find that to be more likely than not.

    Knowing Hasbro, we'll probably get a repainted voyager as Skywarp and repainted FE deluxe as Thundercracker.

    Yeah, that's about how I see it going down. But, they have been doing a nice job of doing some planning ahead on new molds. Like planning alternative head sculpts and body parts. I guess I'm mostly thinking of Generations though...

    No, they will make a voyager Thundercracker, but we'll never see it in stores.

    I'm not too confident that we will see a mass release Skywarp. If anything it will be another store exclusive. I'm probably going to get the Takara one as I do like that mold.

    Hasbro will release one as soon as the PRID(E) moniker has died out.
