    Basically, I've got a 30 dollar Gift Card to Wal-Mart, and one nearby here has a few MP Skywarps clearanced to that price. However I've been waiting for HA Barricade, would it be worth it to get the MP mold now for half price or wait for Barricade to show up? This isn't a "Do or Die" situation, unless Barricade is for some reason shortpacked which doesn't seem to be an issue with Skids or Sideswipe.

    Bottom line, which mold is worth 30 Dollars between Human Alliance Barricade and Masterpiece Skywarp. Forgoing line preferences. Which mold is genuinely more worth the cash?

    I would go with Skywarp as he is technically worth twice the amount. If you have mpSS then go for Barricade.

    Get Skywarp. Now that he's on clearance, once he's gone, he's gone and it will only be more difficult and more expensive to get him. HA Barricade is a mass release so in a few weeks to a month, every store will probably have him in numbers.

    Yea, definately Skywarp. The figure is great especially for $30. I bought two at $60 (still havent been clearanced here). Barricade looks alright and will be purchased, but you will be able to score one of those a few months down the line. I don't expect the Skywarps to last more than a day once they hit the clearance rack here. At that point you will be paying atleast $60 if you want the figure.

    Skywarp, no contest. Good price, and his value only grows once the stores run out of him.

    Both are great toys but Skywarp won't be around too much longer so get him while you can. Barricade shouldn't be too hard to find soon like most of the HA figures.

    Skywarp's actually a lot of fun. I hadn't played much with WM MP Starscream despite having gotten him two years ago, but Skywarp's just great to play with. And, as others note, Barricade will continue to be 30 dollars for a while, whereas Skywarp won't be around much longer.

    I'd go with Skywarp. You can't go wrong with a Masterpiece.

    If you already have MP Starscream go for Barricade. I haven't touched my Masterpiece Screamer since I got him. Been playing with Barricade since I got him.

    If you want both and expect to be able to pay for barricade later, get Skywarp.

    My general opinion of the two toys would be this- Skywarp is the better toy of the two. (unless you dislike the MP Skywarp design, but in that case why even ask)

    I was lucky enough to get barricade back in late december, and I'm already a bit bored with him (although he's not a bad toy). When ever the next round of serious transformer buying hits, he'll likely be one of the ones I bump to make space (I don't have much shelf space).

    Nice picture, but what's with the positioning of wings and jet intakes? :)

    Definitely get MP Skywarp. HA Barricade you'll have a month to save up for the next case assortment.
