    I don't think it would be too long until we see those... But then again, there's less incentive for them to make those since we have the official Takara ones, even though the chase ones are expensive as hell...

    I have the translucent Thundercracker and Skywarp and they are WONDERFUL... I plan on obtaining the Starscream and Sunstorm the next time I head over to Shanghai...:D

    Yes... They are pretty damned awesome...

    The main difference between these and the official ones from Takara lie in the guns... The official ones are short... These ones are long and replicate the ones from the cartoon...

    The plastic is very good...

    *Fighting the urge!* :redface2:

    I have the Skywarp knockoff and only have one complaint about it: the thrusters that form the heels are a little short, so he has trouble standing up straight and always falls over backwards. But other than that the plastic seems totally on par with the official releases.

    hot damn. I've not been able to find the clear skywarp and thundercracker in ages, hell another guy JUST put the two up two days ago. now there's 4 :D  :D  :D 

    oh, for the record, he HAS a non-translucent skywarp and thundercrackers available as well, just not starscream or sunstorm.

    The WST Starscreams are a bit wonky, but I wouldn't mind have all four of those in non-clear as a set thingy. :D

    I wish they'd make a TF and SW that are NOT translucent. They'd sell alot more of them considering how hard those two are to come by.

    However, Ghost Starscream and glowing Sunstorm there are pretty good idea.
