    Let the mailbox sitting commence.

    I have been on the fence about getting this guy ever since he came out, I really wanted one but didn't want to spend $100 on such a small figure.

    Well, I finally broke down today, I found one on ebay for $85, hopefully he gets here in time for my birthday (8 days from now).

    Of course I'll have to do the tail-fin mod like I did with my Hasbro MP Starscream - and here's to hoping Takaratomy puts out a masterpiece Thundercracker some day!

    He sure is a nice piece, and one you likely won't regret buying. I lucked out and got him for $60 shipped MISB.

    I just bought walscream, he is my first masterpiece figure and I love it. The only problem is now I want the rest. Megatron will probably be my next one and after, Skywarp. Hope you enjoy it because these guys are awesome.

    Agreed. Skywarp (and the original MP Starscream) are higher quality molds, with better paint apps than the Hasbro Starsream. I have 2 Hasbro Starscreams (1 for me, one I'm currently repainting) and some of the pieces don't line up or fit as nicely as the Takara versions. So if you like the Hasbro SS, you'll love Skywarp :)

    You wont regret it, Skywarp is by far the best to come out of that mold.

    I want him but I holding out the Hasbro will release a Anime Colored Skywarp like they did with MP Starscream. I jumped the gun with Starscream and then Hasbro released the one I was hoping for. So I will wait a little longer.

    Takara's is pretty darn close to anime accurate.

    Awesome figure. My favorite seeker and second favorite MP to this point (Megs FTW). That black and purple color scheme on the F-15 looks EXCELLENT.

    You definitely won't be disappointed.

    Great purchase D_C! Now you just have to stalk the mail-person.
