    I've never seen that pic before, but would like to see more. Is that Starsream in the background?

    With how bad Skywarp did I'm pretty sure they turned the green light to red.

    Mine's sat there sealed for about a year now. I guess I should have at least opened it to check the QC. Oh well.

    As an aside, I love the display style of 3-4 toys in various states of transformation. I'd like to do some of this myself but I don't buy too many multiples.

    MP Skywarp's Hasbro release was bad?

    Considering that I was never able to find Hasbro's MP Skywarp at Wal-Mart, I thought he was a hot item.

    IIRC Skywarp went down to $10 in the states. I never saw one in Canada but I wasn't really looking because I own the TT version.

    When Thundercracker went up in price for the same mould and the 4th release of said mould, I couldn't justify buying it. I hope it does hit North American retail but with Hot Rod out and still needing an American release I highly doubt it :(

    Yeah, Skywarp was on clearance for a LONG time. They made way too many.

    Thundercracker is the only MP Seeker that I would buy multiples of since its my favorite one of them all. Hope we'll see Hasbro release soon I can't justify paying the Takara MP price.

    I wonder about using various size classes together to make something like that. Like use a legends class to start out as a jet from far away, then move to deluxe for mid transformation as he becomes closer, then end with masterpiece.

    It's not that they made too many...it is more like too many people were cheap-asses looking for a discount. Instead of going out to support the release, they decided to wait for him to go down to $20/etc.

    In the UK, he was only available at one store (Argos) and they were clearancing him within the first week of release! Or at least that's what it seemed like. I don't ever recall him being at full price. If he had been at TRU or on wider release then it might have been a different story. It definitely hurt MP Thundercracker's chances though. And by 'hurt'. I mean 'killed'.

    I did'nt know sales were bad for the MP Skywarp. That is probably the reason why I haven't seen a the MP Thundercracker.
