Encore 11 Skywarp & Thundercracker
Damn, I was hoping for purple weapons.
Interesting, I wasn't expecting a 2 pack.
sweet. i guess these might be slightly better constructed than the hasbro versions already released (the collection SS is tighter than either of my hasbro seekers) but i'll wait for metroplex as the hasbro versions will suffice for now. We do get the nice skywarp G1 art though, something the hasbro box was missing.
I like the two pack box. That's a nice way to get these two. I would get them if I didn't already have those expensive Japanese Toy show reissues of them from 2001.
I have Hasbro's Skywarp but I will still be getting this. They're most likely like Starscream and have tampo'd faction symbols, plus the fact that I don't own Thundercracker is more than enough reason for me to buy this. EDIT: Yup, deffinately tampos.
I just love the Starscream mould. People call it a parts-former but the pegs can be used as hinges so it doesn't have to be. (no more than you average G1 fig with the weapons and fists needing to be popped on/off)
I wonder if we'll see a Ramjet and Thrust in this two-pack style box later down the Encore line. (Dirge could be an exclusive like he was back in the G1 days.)
true on the 'not necessarity a parts former' aside from the fists. I think its a shame that some criticise these toys for that aspect, when first designed as diaclones 25 years ago these were incredible toys, and to my mind they still are
The rubber nosecones look really bad on these. Hope that's fixed before release. (Rubber nosecones on mine are good. not flawless, but better than that)
Hope the eyes are painted this time too.
Packaging looks good, and since I quite like my G1 Starscream I'm going to consider getting this.
What a nice set. I may have to pick this up after all. Just seeing G1 Skywarp warms my heart... and my original don't look so great after 24 years.
Must have... A seeker giftset in Japanese G1 style packaging...
I simply cannot NOT buy it...
I was waiting to see these guys before deciding to buy or not. I was afraid TC would end up baby blue for anime styling. Now that I see he is normal, I will buy this set.
Need to sell my TRU reissue Starscream, Skywarp & Jazz now. Dammit all!
Anyways, I still have these on preorder. Aren't they due in September? This two-pack looks great. I will definitely be keeping them in-box as a show piece.
I just can't get myself to buy these encores when the newer one are so much better. Well anywho, enjoy them if you collect them!!!
That looks great, now I'm debating whether or not to try and pick these bad boys up.
Yeah, I wonder how much they would fetch? I've got both TC & SW that would be "expendable" if I bought this new Encore release.
I don't know I figure I would offer them up as a bundle. $25 bucks if I am luck plus what ever shipping would be.
