    I was thinking about the seekers when something occurred to me, they always leave out Skywarp or Thundercracker in the series, in Animated they didn't really all that happened was Thundercracker didn't get a respectable figure. So I set up this poll to see who other fans thought was most well known, my votes for Skywarp.

    Probably Thundercracker, as he's been used extensively more than Skywarp.

    Armada - Starscream and Thundercracker (at least in colors) in cartoon. Skywarp in toy only.
    Cybertron - Starscream and Thundercracker. No Skywarp.
    Movie - Starscream repainted as Thundercracker. Don't remember Skywarp being painted.

    Skywarp got a big toy in Animated, but that's probably due to the fact that he was packaged with another character that was "blue/gray" in color as Longarm/Shockwave, thus they chose to go with the black repaint of Starscream.

    It seems as though when Hasbro decides to repaint one of the Starscreams, it traditionally becomes Thundercracker first, and then Skywarp, that is if they even decide to produce one. I know in Cybertron Thundercracker was a completely different mold from Starscream, which may be one of the only times that this has occured. I think the only time we got a Skywarp and no Thundecracker was when they released the Universe 1.0 Jet Storm repaint. If I'm wrong on this, please feel free to correct me.

    Classics had a Skywarp but no Thundercracker. Except for the con exclusive. then they passed on him a again and went with Acid Storm, an again to give us another Starscream repaint. I know it's been said many times, but there needs to be a classics Thundercracker as a regular release.

    And in MP 'Warp came first too.

    As characters, they're really both sort of non-entities. It's like, there's Starscream, there's the one with the cool black and purple colour scheme, and then there's that other guy. So I'd say Skywarp, based on the fact that he's got at least something more memorable about him.

    My friend had never watched/read anything but the TF film and was asking me if I had any comics with Skywarp in them. So I say Skywarp.

    Kickback mentioned Armada Skkywarp, who was toy only too.

    It hasn't been released yet, but a Skywarp repaint is coming out in the RotF line as a Walmart exclusive.

    Definitely Skywarp. I even recall my brother as a little kid saying he wanted "Skywarp or the blue guy".

    I think Skywarp is, he is the more common of the two that I find when I go looking for tfs on the net to buy, and he is the one out of the two that I had as a kid

    I would say that Thundercracker is generally more well known than Skywarp.

    The first Universe line also gave us Skywarp from BM Jetstorm's deluxe mold. :wink: 

    But to be fair....I really think they both are on the same level here. One may show up one place while another shows up someplace else. The funny thing about it is that I always thought the complimented each other, and that's why they are so iconic.
