    my animated skywarp has no hands due to them falling off every 2 seconds..... they are now in a plastic baggy with other accesorries/parts i dont care for i plan to burn. and dont tell me to use glue or anything because that would just make it look ugly due to my poor skills....:cry  does anyone else have problems with animated skywarp?

    I have that problem with animated Starscream. You could try tightening the screws on his forearm. It didn't help my Starscream much though.

    The Classics Starscream mold is even worse. People will pine for more repaints of it though, me included.

    My Skywarp didn't have any problems, my brother's didn't have the head attached, but it was still hiding in the figure.

    Finger Nail Chip fixer is your friend. Apply it in coats.

    Its weird, I have no QC problems with my skywarp, but my starscreams feet fall off and sunstorms and starscreams tail fins keep popping off! Yet skywarp is perfect...figure that one out?!

    I haven't seen it in stores anywhere either. I ordered mine off of BBTS last year right after it came out; I'm glad I did.

    As for the figure, I haven't had any issues with Skywarp or Starscream. I think the head popped off of Starscream as I tried adjusting it once (Skywarp's seems to have more maneuverability for me), but that's the only thing that's come up.

    About half of the Skywarps I see in stores all have a lose hand in the box.

    My hands were fine, my right leg was real loose though, a little nail polish helped that alot.
