    I recently found out that Masterpiece Skywarp was reduced to £20 in Argos and was wondering whether i should get him or not.

    Sure. Masterpiece toys at a cheap price is never a bad thing.

    It's a great repaint, and a great mold, get it while you can at that price!

    It's a quite easy to transform mold, so he's fun to fiddle with too :D

    And no, it's not really that fragile.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Don't listen to this, they are fragile. The wing joints are infamous for cracking, the mould has noticeable gaps between parts, and the paint rubs off easily.

    I bought the Takara version and thought it was worth it at the high import price... now I've seen the Hasbro version at Argos for £20, I'm seriously considering picking up that one, too :) 

    I really love the MP seeker mould, and I think to get hold of it for £20 is a bargain :)

    Yes you should buy it... and the tabs that hold the wings in place in alt mode are a bit fragile.

    When you're going from plane to robot, swing out the lower arms first,
    then push the airflap section through the bottom
    THEN disconnect the wings.

    Do. How often are you going to get a TF that well designed for 20 Quid.
    Esp in the UK.

    Hell yeah get it, you can't even buy a rubbish movie voyager for that price.

    I have MP Starscream and Skywarp, they're great toys. Have only transformed mine a couple of times but didn't have any problems with them being fragile or overly complicated. As long as you do them carefully shouldn't be an issue.

    For £20? Oh, yes, buy that thing. As long as you're aware that it is more of a display and "careful-fiddling" piece rather than a standard issue toy. Take care when transforming the wings and you'll have an awesome MP Jet for the price of a voyager.
    I bought him for £40 before they started to slash the price and you know what? He's still worth it. I have no regrets.

    I go thim for £29.99 a couple of weeks back, he is proper awesome, for the price there is nothing comparable. I think they are pretty solid too, you would have to do a lot to break one, unless you have big club hands.
