    Movie G1 Screamer and Thundercracker W/Pic

    Got both of these and I really love the mold. What do you think the chances are of them releasing a repaint skywarp in this mold?

    It would be great if they would repaint it as Skywarp. With all the repaints in this line I wouldn't be surprised to see one. I doubt that the Allspark Power line will have only 3 Voyager figures. It all depends on how long the movie line runs.

    Got my 'Screamer, but I haven't opened him yet. I've got a couple more on the way, so I'm probably going to tear into this one. I like the coloring, but I'm still up in the air on the head sculpt for these.

    I guess I could see them doing the Skywarp repaint, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    The new head really makes the mold good for me. I really didn't like the movie Starscream figure. I picked up Thundercracker and really like it & am thinking of picking up the G1 Starscream now.

    Given the multiple cases of two out of three Seekers in recent lines, I'd say chances are slim to none.

    I think if they do a Skywarp, it'll be an exclusive of some kind, since the mold has already been used twice in mass release ('standard' Starscream & Thundercracker), and once more as a Target exclusive (G1 Starscream). Could be wrong though.

    I thought I read somewhere that due to some licensing thing, they couldn't use movie molds for BotCon exclusives. Maybe that was just the GM autobots. I'd rather it be mass-released though myself... and hopefully not part of the AllSpark Power line, because if they cover Skywarp with that terrible blue, it'll look horrible next to the other G1/Movie seekers. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of buying it anyway?

    It's anything from the Movie that's got a licensed alt mode, basically. I don't think we'll be seeing any Movie toys as BC exclusives.
    If a Skywarp does get made, I'm going to have a hard time not getting all three of them - I was thinking about Thundercracker but not the Starscream.

    This time we'll see Skywarp as the botcon figure.

    Two things we will never see as Botcon exclusives: Alts and movie figs. Licensing and everything would jack up the price to the point where it wouldn't be worth it.

    I really doubt Hasbro would do all 6... Skywarp maybe (with the Waspinator head? I don't like the second version AT ALL)...

    Then again, Hasbro's been surprising before...

    Couldn't they just make Botcon exclusives out of the figures that aren't licensed? Wreckage, Arcee, Longarm and so forth?
