    Hey guys! I'm about bit confuse about the different MP Skywarp available on the market and I'm hoping you guys can help me figure things out. So, recently Hasbro released the Walmart exclusive MP Skywarp which closely ressembles the G1 toy. Previous to that there was Takara's MP Skywarp. Now I've seen picture of this one and most of them show the plane mode as almost entirely black. To be frank I much prefer Hasbro's version for once, but then I see these pictures and I get confused... Skywarp (2009) - Decepticon - www.tfu.info. Look at the bottom at the variations. This shows a japanese MP Skywarp, but the plane has purple stripes on the edge of the wings and decepticon logos much like the Hasbro version. What is this? Where can I get it! xD

    It's the Takara MP SW with the stickers applied.

    Ohhh! Neat! Dunno why there's so many pictures displaying him w/o the stickers then lol, he definitly looks better with them. Oh and, does that mean that the decepticon logos can be stickered in whatever way we want? 'Cause I'd hate the symbols to be upside down in robot mode.

    Even if you do want to put them on the "wrong" way...aka right side up in bot mode.

    Hasbro's version is still on clearance at some Walmarts.

    Takara, who knows? Seems like that toy came out the better part of 2 years ago. I'm sure you can still find one on the internet somewhere, and hopefully not marked up too much. But who knows?

    You can get the Hasbro Skywarp for stupid cheap on ebay without much effort these days.

    MP Skywarp hasn't seemed to move much up or down in price since release. Which I find a bit odd.

    Takara's Masterpiece Skywarp was released twice. Once in September 2007 and then again in October 2008. So there are plenty of them.
