    1. its quite sturdy save the wing joints, while not weak per se they are the weakest point on the figure. do Remember this is a collector's figure not one you could give to a kid and expect to survive for long.

    2. Its fairly accurate, the hip kibble isn't and there some of the things in the MP Seeker mold that were never featured in the G1 Cartoon. ( The Air break for example)

    3. he comes with out the base up to ROTF Leader Prime's shoulder, his wing tips a bit higher though

    this shouldn't even be a question, this is a mold most people paid 100+ for, and your getting it under 20 or 30 bucks? Hell yeah, it is worth the money!! The figure is great, my only complain is the Hip pieces.... Really wish Takara would of just attached it to the legs.

    I think this is the 2nd or 3rd thread on this topic? TFW should just put a banner on the front page that reads

    "GO TO WALMART AND BUY MP SKYWARP NOW OR ELSE YOU WILL BE SORRY ONCE THE SCALPERS BY THEM ALL"

    He's about ROTF Prime height since Masterpiece Prime is a little larger.

    If your order for an Animated version fell through and this is your replacement, you've just been upgraded to 1st class. There is no comparison between the two and if you're getting for under $60 then it's damn near a blessing. ;-)

    Head is about level with Prime's shoulders.

    Durability... it can't be thrown around the place. As long as you're reasonably careful/patient with it, it should be okay.

    ...and when you're tfing from alt mode, swing the lower arms down first, push the airbrake section up through the gap in the bottom, THEN disconnect the wings.

    I broke a shoulder joint without much force. It was the very first time to transform it. I'm heading to Walmart in a little bit to see if they'll switch it out.

    Mine is incredibly sturdy, and survived a few dives to the floor without a problem. The only issue I have with mine is one of the back wings pop off really easy, but it can just as easily pop right back on.

    Yep, my Skywarp has taken a fall or two and nothing has broken and there aren't any stress fractures on it like I had on my Greenscream after two transformations.

    I think it's a pretty cool figure. Here's a size comparison with RotF Leader Prime.

    Never had a problem standing Skywarp or Starscream. It's all about adjusting the thrusters(heels) appropriately. I give all credit to Kenner for the years I spent standing up my Star Wars figures as a kid to create battle scenes.

    My Skywarp has no problem standing up! Its my clumsy elbows that knock him down.
    Another issue I just happened to remember is that my Skywarp had problems pegging into the clear plastic stand while in robot mode, but it is not a big deal to me.

    Good decision, d00d! Just remember that whatever price you're getting him for, he was designed as a fairly high cost collectible toy; as such he's honestly not as durable as, say, a Classics figure. Treat him well, take your time on transforming him, and you WILL be rewarded with a hell of a figure.

    agreed! I don't know how much your going to pay for it but you should ask someone on the forums to hook you up. They are selling for 5-20 dollars depending on the area.

    2.how Accurate- is it The takara version is beter if you put on the stickers it has thinner stripes and more paint apps over all

    3.Where does it come it come up to rotf leader prime- About the shoulders
