    Ebay:
    Ever notice the similarities between Skywarp and BMac Mirage? The stats are completely different, but the bio is very similar. Did the designers intend Mirage to be carrying Skywarp's spark? Or did they just decide to adapt an old bio? An inside joke perhaps? I'd certainly never noticed the similarity before.

    Interesting.

    Mirage is a real trickster - and like most practical jokers, loves being devious. An experimental, high-speed weapon created by Megatron to breach the intelligence gap between Vehicon generals and their drones. Still, not very smart. Would be useless without Megatron's supervision. Enjoys playing tricks on fellow Vehicons. Can appear out of nowhere to attack Maximals. Sneakiest and most elusive of all Vehicons. Top speed of 300 miles per mega-cycle. Can instantly teleport up to 200 yards. Wields plasma mine blaster and dual missile launchers. Unpopular amongst fellow warriors.​

    original bio:
    Skywarp is the sneakiest of all Decepticons. Enjoys playing cruel pranks on fellow Decepticons and appearing out of nowhere to attack Autobots. Not too smart. Would be useless without Megatron's supervision. Top speed of 1500mph. Can instantly teleport up to 2.5 miles. Carries heat-seeking missiles and variable-calibre machine guns.

    Of course, it changes a bit for the Commemorative series, and this is presumably closer to the personality used for the Classics version.

    Commemorative series bio:
    Skywarp is a sneak who enjoys playing cruel tricks on his comrades and appearing without warning to snipe at Autobot forces. Cunning and powerful, he is the most deceitful of all Decepticons, and he would be a misguided soldier without Megatrons's constant supervision. Carries heat-seeking missiles and variable-calibre machine guns and has the ability to teleport up to 2.5 miles. Top speed: 1500 mph.

    Better question: If Skywarp was turned into Cyclonus, how are they both in the Botcon comic?

    I think having Skywarp and Cyclonus in the same place in the BC Wreckers comic was an intentional WTF to the readers.

    Thats a really cool find. I'd think it was more of a little nod to Skywarp than anything intentional but hey you never know!

    Couldn't it have been simple recycling of old ideas?
