    A Ninja? I thought the bio would say:

    "Skywarp is dumb as shit. He can also teleport and push doods down stairs."

    Woah, that's a surprisingly cool bio. It'd be cool seeing him in the show with that persona.

    Also the Starscream design is cool and actually does fit a ninja-like character, so I wouldn't be mad at a model reuse

    Armada Skywarp was a ninja, IIRC...

    Also it just dawned on me... The Arms Microns don't have names?

    No they have names they've been printed before it's usually a contraction of the bigger toys name sometimes with a number.

    People have listed them before when they have been listed in Japanese toy magazine articles.

    I don't know if the name is on the packaging or instruction at all though you'd have to ask someone with a better grasp of Japanese and with the toys in hand.

    Ninjas are still quite capable of pushing you down the stairs. Worse yet, you'd never know he was coming!

    "Skywarp's not the type of guy you want to run into in a mall. He'll push down the up escalator and you'll NEVER stop falling. Have fun paying that hospital bill..."

    "ps he also stole your wallet"

    I don't recognise the idea of Skywarp as a Practical joker in most of the ways he's shown in any media I have seen so if he was shown like that it didn't stay with me in any meaningful way. I don't really see it as part of who he is to me - Is it some revisionist thing added lately like the idea of Thundercracker being a semi-heroic Decepticon ?

    Thundercracker's anti-hero personality was actually some-what present in his original G1 bio, with it making specific mention that he doubts the Decepticon cause. Recent portrayals are actually truer to his original characterization.

    I'm pretty sure Skywarp was always the guy with a really powerful ability he just used for dumb pranks and he didn't have the assertiveness to use it for anything useful.

    I kind of wish Prime Skywarp was a coward.

    But then we'd have two cowardly planes, and I think we only need one.

    No, Skywarp using his teleportation powers to pull cruel, physically painful pranks is part of his original profile, in both full-length "Universe" and cut-down "Tech Spec" versions.
