    Considering you can get it along with encore TC for less than 60, it is.

    I'm not an expert by any means, but if you're a Skywarp fan be happy with your purchase and don't worry too much about the price!

    AFA grading is unnecessary imo.

    I've seen eHobby Skywarps going for more on eBay and I think the price is fair enough :) 

    AFA grading ? well it depends whether on you wanna spend extra on the figure or not. Personally I don't find AFA's appealing.

    thanks you guys! I have seen others sell for a little more or BIN's for $150, someone has one as a BIN for $399!!!!

    I figured AFA grading is not worth it.

    But anyone know what the deal is with him? Whats special about him other than being a G1 Skywarp in a different box. Is that all this is?

    That's a pretty good deal, he's dropped in price since the Encore release, I paid roughly £50/$100 for mine about 18 months ago.

    SW and TC were released as a set at the Japanese Super Festival in 2001, limited to 1000. They're strictly not e-hobby releases, belonging to Takara's collector's edition series, but I refer them to as e-hobby as well due to their packaging.

    He's a straight re-issue of G1 SW, doesn't have any extra bits.

    Mine is a really good fit, his wings sit flush with his body, and he's nice and tight. Unlike my TFC Screamer, who was a floppy mess until I tightened him up.

    If you'd like any pics of him opened up, let me know and I'll dig him out, got to dig out TC anyway as I'll be opening him up soon along with Henkei and MP TC!
