    Did they ever release any pics of the 6" Titanium Skywarp? Concept drawings, color map, anything? I have an extra Thundercracker & I'm making a custom Skywarp but I'm not sure how to do the colors/stripe pattern. I don't remember seeing any pics so I'll probably go by the Classic version. But I'm hoping somebody has some type of pic of what Hasbro was planning.

    Here's a hint: If any of you wanna make a custom Skywarp use a Sharpie. Forget about actually painting it, just use a permanent black Sharpie, you won't believe how awesome it works. You'll have to use paint for the purple areas but a Sharpie works great for majority of it.

    As far as I know, there have been no pictures of Titanium Skywarp. At BotCon, the Hasbro guys didn't even know he existed!

    I think he was dropped before they even got sketches made.
    As was WW Grimlock.
    Im guessing WW Prowl was cancelled aswell.

    Primal Prime alongside Soundblaster & Ravage seem to be coming (were shown packaged at Botcon)
    But Im pretty sure WW Grimlock, Prowl and Skywarp are cancelled.

    I was just thinking of making this custom as well. I was able to pick up a WW Starscream when they restocked at Target and wanted to re-paint it as Skywarp and was looking for reference material. Guess I'll have to reference the G1 cartoon if he didn't appear in the WW comics as I previously thought.

    Nobody can so for sure about the last five 6" Titaniums. One person said the last five in the catalogue would be released. The Hasbro panel said that they didn't even know Skywarp was happening, and that they didn't know if Soundblaster was going to be done or not, even though he was on display at the show. They did confirm that Prowl and Grimlock would be being released, but they would be "rare".

    I'm pretty sure they said Prowl and Grimlock were going to be the final wave. They've already invested in Prowl as far as prototyping, so odds are he'll see release in some fashion.

    I sure hope so, I want him to head up my EDF Autobots!

    We have already seen WW Prowl. I think he will be the last one.

    The Hasbro panel said the 6" line would end with WW Grimlock and WW Prowl as far as the Skywarp I have seen no pictures and would agree use your classics for a paint or Sharpie scheme.

    Skywarp is my fave seeker, so it just eats at me that they canceled him. I have not seen any pics of him, though. Sorry I couldn't be of any help.

    What really burns me is we've got Sunstorm taking up a spot that should have been Skywarp's in the line. Granted, it's probably to do with the fact The Fallen was around that wave (too many black toys like why Tidal Wave got changed that time) but even so, it doesn't help me much.

    I really hope the Collector's Club issues him as an exclusive or something. I'd love to own one, even if I have to customise one myself!

    That is a great idea, you should send a HINT to the TFCC.

    Skywarp is actually my least favorite [non-conehead] Seeker..... but I still agree with you, it bugs me that it was cancelled. I would just really like to have the complete set of three (four if you count Sunstorm). And it's hard to deny that Skywarp's colors look nice.

    Shit, I saw a Starscream at a local Target this weekend and didn;t even THINK about getting it to repaint into Skywarp...It bugs me that the seekers weren;t completed for Titaniums too :(

    I'm sure with the way Menasor turned out they're bristling with anticipation. Hey, I didn't help and I know it. I may yet get Menasor, but the WWI Seeker mold is crappy in my opinion because of the shoulders (those things that fold out), the arms/hands and the head (=awful). The entire design isn't that nice. Cyb/GF Starscream may be farther away from the WWI aesthetic. but it's a sexier design. Sucks that those that got it are indeed going to shorthanded though (I'm sure Draven, if he likes these, is rolling his eyes at Sunstorm). :( 

    EDIT: I don't know why but after I reorganized my closet (such progress! :rolleyes2  ), I went to HTS, added Menasor, plugged in COMIC2007, got $2 off and checked out. That's $25.34 I need right now... but I felt compelled. Now watch all of you waiters are probably getting a sale within a week or two. :mad  :lol
