    Already been on my bbts preorder list since they had it up. Definitely want TC too, because I liked their banter in that one level in WFC

    I was also noticing the lack of black on him but he still looks good enough to get. Was it mentioned that he or Blaster was Takara only?

    I was planning on getting the Blaster version of the discs-bot mold but I gotta say that I'm just not feeling it with either from these pics. Seriously now thinking about skipping the entire mold and saving the shelf space.

    Skywarp? meh.. looks more like one of those generic seekers, to me Skywarp is black and only has some purple and silver parts

    Skywarp makes total sense to me. What if he wasn't mostly black to begin with, and he gets his G1 colors after he scans a stealth fighter? He's preordered, but I won't hold my breath for Thundercracker, since he might just be a gambo or botcon exclusive on Games of Deception, FOC Edition.

    Just occurred to me..

    Skywarp's main color is black with Purple "details" and silver chest yet we're getting purple FOC Skywarp with Black/Gunnetal grey

    Thundercracker is Blue with Black "details" and silverchest.. are we going to get a Black Thundercracker with Metalic Blue "details" ?

    Agreed, I pre-ordered him, but if Hasbro does a Black one, he'll be my warpy and this one will be "purple seeker"

    Hasbro would be nuts not to release their own Skywarp. Mostly because they use that design for him and Starscream in the IDW comics.

    I'm glad I'm not liking that figure, I don't need another exclusive that I need to import. I don't mind if the fig is worth it but I'm not digging that shade of purple and I don't really like the FOC design.
