    What are you thoughts on this figures?
    Are they worth it $15 each?

    Yes.

    Wreck-Gar's a hell of a shellformer whose alt mode mostly turns into his backpack (the backpack is show accurate, so it doesn't bug me), but he's a great design full of personality. My only complaint are that the lifting forks hang off his back and get in the way.

    Skywarp's my favorite color scheme out of the Animated seekers. Some have issues with their heads fingers falling off easy, but they're easy to put back on if that happens.

    I'd say 15 is a good price for each of them.

    Yep. Pay 60 for a deluxe and 65 for MP instead of a 15$ voyager.

    Yes they are absolutely worth it. Expression aside, Skywarp works the mould better than Starscream and Wreck Gar is just so full of personality and character. They literally don't make 'em like that anymore.

    If you were referring to me, I was being sarcastic at the anti-Animated post I replied to.

    You should definatly go after Skywarp and Wreck-Gar.

    Don't have Wreck-Gar, but I wish I did. Looks like a great figure. I don't have Skywarp either, but I have Sunstorm, and I absolutely adore him. Both have great colors, but Skywarp (apparently, though I can't say for sure) has better QC and less mold rot. So yeah, both figures for that price are worth it.

    Those prices seem surprisingly low. I actually that to be a steal.

    If you're having issues with Skywarp's fingers falling out, just use the 'ol superglue trick to tighten to peg in points or a tiny bit of newspaper/tissue to increase the friction and keep them in place.

    its a good deal.

    Skywarp usually goes for $20 or so and Wreck-gar usually goes for a bit more as the Hasbro version is seemingly a tad hard to find.

    Those are some of my least favourite animated molds. Both pretty boring.. despite that, I'd go for it if i didn't have them.
    Not really bad, just not as cool and fun as most of the other animated toys are imo.

    I recommend them - especially Skywarp, there's a slightly metallic shine to the purple paint on his wings that photos don't do justice to.
