    ...but I just got Classics Thundercracker the other day, and his tech specs gave him an intelligence of 4. According to Skywarp's tech specs, he's much smarter than Thundercracker, even though his bio says he's dumber than a rock.

    My theory: Skywarp just plays dumb to fuck with everybody. I can just picture some hilarious scenarios arising from this:

    STARSCREAM: *is working on complicated mathematical formula* Go away, Warp. I'm busy.
    SKYWARP: *reads over Starscream's shoulder* Hm... yeah... but you made a mistake.
    STARSCREAM: Oh, please. You won't know a mistake if it bit you in the afterburners.
    SKYWARP: No, no. You see, right there. *points* That equation is wrong. *fixes* Well, bye, Screamer! *waves* *warps away*
    STARSCREAM: .................................... :jawdropper:

    The printed techs between Skywarp and Starscream are swapped.

    Skywarp also shouldn't be a Rank 9...

    Skywarp's dumb. He pushed the Tech-Spec guy down a flight of stairs until he swapped his and Starscream's bio.

    Okay, I did some research, and it appears that TC's tech specs were originally supposed to be Skywarp's. :/ Apparently, all three original seekers had their tech specs switched around. I always just assumed that it was SW and SS.

    SS is the fastest and SW the dumbest, TC is the 3rd sheet, easy to remember.

    Same thing goes for Megs and, well, all the Decepticons.

    He gets the award for waking first.

    At least Starscream wanted to fight till Megs stopped him

    Is that what you call resurrecting the Autobots?

    Technically it was Soundwaves fault for not deprogramming Teletran 1 once the last Decepticon was functional.

    Besides if 10 is genius level then what classifies as average?

    If it's a "5" then he's only slightly stupid.

    It looked like Thundercracker was just a little bit smarter than Skywarp, even though both of them were just Megatron's muscle.

    Basically Megatron felt Soundwave was very useful to him, and Starscream was talented, but he was also treacherous... so Megs had to keep an eye on him. Skywarp and Thundercracker just filled out Megatron's unit as 2 goons who acted as the group's muscle.

    I think I heard that Skywarp's and Starscream's tech specs were switched, so Starscream should have an intelligence spec of 9, and Skywarp should have an intelligence spec of 7 (still fairly smart, though, if you think of 5 as the average TF intelligence). I think it would make more sense if Thundercracker were 7 and Skywarp were 4.

    ^This.

    Besides I like the idea of WFC Thundercracker as a scientist. Skywarp is more like a lab assitant for Thundercracker.
