    It took ages for the package to arrive which the seller took from USA to his vacation in CANADA since my payment took 7days
    cuz of my bank he had to wait until it cleared, since I don't have creditcard (and will never own one, DON'T WANT TO) and posted it from there!!! :sly: 

    Having the package in hand looking through the plastic windows they really look better than any picture I've seen so far.... :rock 

    Here's the dilemma..
    I've got someone who's interested in the Skywarp for 50euro = $71

    I payed 115euro shipped MISB...

    what should you guys do... since finding a Magnus was a major pain!! :eek: 
    but I really have the urge the rip it free from it's packages...

    I already got the henkei seekers ...
    But wow this skywarp might looks even better than henkei's... :drunk

    That's kinda what I did. I bought that set when it came out and sold the Magnus. But that was before it became in such high demand. You should just keep it.

    Open it, sell the Skywarp, and earn your magnus for almost-free. No-brainer in my book, unless you REALLY like him that much more than the henkei version.

    I snagged my magni at retail (clearance, even, I think...) so I can't relate to this particular dilemma quite so much :lol

    Money comes and goes, but these two transformers are hard to come by. I say keep them both and save yourself some sellers remorse.

    Do what I did when I bought that pack three days after it hit shelves: open it and enjoy two really awesome figures.

    these. skywarp is a pain to hunt down, unless you'd settle for the ko.
    I'd just be happy with the pack and start saving for the FP cc armor.

    ^ This.

    This is probably the one good reason I try to buy two of everything. One to display and one to keep MOC/MISB. Well.....that's if I can afford to.

    Yeah, but one day you might think back and decide to get the seekers from the classics line and regret selling skywarp. Then....you try to look for one at a decent price and find him at twice to three times the amount you sold him for. I know....its happened to me a few times....and it sucks.

    Keep the Skywarp. If for no other reason, you could keep him as a "nest egg" for later sale if you are in need of some quick cash because Skywarp is always in some demand.

    The back picture is of a prototype, any differences are covered by the disclaimer on the package: "actual colors may vary". There are lots of cases where the actual toy doesn't match the back pictures. If you want your magnus to look a bit more detailed with a blue faceplate, there's always Reprolabels: Reprolabels.com -. Their current promotion would also get you a free set of faction symbols (mixed G1 Bot/Con) since you would be paying over $10.

    Depends, do you have the City Commander kit? If not, keep in MISB.

    Thats awesome. I still remember buying that 2 back when it first released for around $20.00. Then the FP Armor came out and he has been wearing that ever since.

    Ditto, my Magnus is forever in his upgraded armor and I paid retail for this set years ago.

    Definitely save the packaging. I kept mine so I can MIB if needed for storage. Usually I toss out my boxes.

    I'd keep them both. As soon as you sell Skywarp, you'll probably start regretting it if you want to complete your classics seekers down the road.

    So do I. I still keep my Skywarp though, but as one of the random background Seekers. In fact, I've kind of dubbed him my default Flamethrower Seeker.

    I hate the fact i still don't have Thundercracker. It hasn't gotten a release in Canada yet.

    Skywarp and Starscream are lonely without their compadre.
