    Either Blaster has a small box or Skywarp has a huge card. I thought the cards for the Deluxes were only marginally taller than the Voyager boxes.

    I really hope that Skywarp gets a Hasbro release in the U.S. Not only would it be cheaper, but it would match the rest of my Hasbro FoC figures in that it wouldn't have the metallic sheen. Don't get me wrong...I love the look of the Takara figures, but I can't afford $30-$60 a figure from a Generations line...

    I'm glad I have Skywarp on preorder from BBTS, especially if this will be the only way I can get him.

    Wow yeah, I was just thinking the same thing! And looking at Blaster in comparison to his box, the box doesn't look any smaller than usual... judgeing by the umpteen hundred FOC Soundwaves I've seen. Again, comparing Skywarp's card to the actual figure... I don't know, I'm not quite as certain it's not bigger then normal. Hmm

    Nope, it's the correct size. I'm staring at a Deluxe FoC Kickback card and a Voyager Springer box side-by-side

    Skywarp looks amazing. Please don't screw me over this time and not fulfil my preorder again, HLJ, please.

    I'm more interested in Blaster than Skywarp. My old CHUG Slywarp is still enough for me while I don't have a version of Blaster in my collection.

    Ugh, that moment when you wonder if you should just bite the bullet and order Takara's FoC Skywarp, or wait and see what Hasbro decides to do. Although, if the past is any indication, Hasbro has some sort of long-standing grudge against the guy since his MP didn't do so hot...

    Never mind the idea right now that, if I order him from Takara, his paint job will be spectacular compared to Starscream and Thundercracker's...

    I think it looks great, but it doesn't scream Skywarp.

    I thought Skywarp is supposed to be black with purple highlights, this version is purple and gray....is he mis-named Slipstream?

    I canceled my Skywarp preorder a while ago. The light purple (lavender?) just makes it look too much like a genericon and not Skywarp.
