    1. very posable. possibly the best animated mold out there next to Leader Magnus n Leader Megatron

    2. the head tends to get stuck when transforming from robot to jet, and then it'll snap offa the balljoint. But if you patiently align it facing straight and down, then it'll probably stay. Also, u have to get everything aligned to transform it back to jet.
    Very durable and solid. Great fig.

    3. Don't have a camera with me now, so no pics. srry

    Other than that tf7 nailed it.

    1.Very posable, has about 17 points of articulation.

    2.No, I've had him since April last year and there are no parts that could break easily while transforming him.

    3.Check the feedback thread.

    Skywarp may be the only version of this mold I'll buy...those other colors look clownish

    A great mold, IMO. I just have a problem with the nosecone in robot mode. It doesn't click into his waist and as a result he has some issues there. Apart from that, fantastic.

    There is a feedback forum index sticky in the feedback section if the search doesn't work for you.

    Regards Skywarp, I personally think he's the best of the Animated Starscream designs. Great deco, good poseability. I'd recommend being careful with the two panels on the back of the jet, between the legs / boosters. I've never had a problem with them on Skywarp but they always pop off on my Starscream. As a response I pretty much never handle Starscream any more.

    as mentioned, his balljoints pop off fairly easily but they go back on without much fuss. a lot of transforming and he'll likely go a bit floppy, but the QC issues aren't as bad as they were on starscream fwiw (much nicer paint, stiffer joints)

    I'm just hoping you didn't pay too much for it. Saw a shitload of these and Shockwave at Superstore today for $8 canadian.

    I bought one last week, and just opened him about an hour ago.

    I think its an overall great figure.

    Pretty much the only problem I've had with the mold, though my Sunstorm is the main culprit. I love the Skywarp deco, but just about any version Hasbro or Takara releases will be happily purchased. I'm holding out hope someone will release a white version.
