Assuming Hasbro releases a Skywarp repaint, I might get him. I don't plan on getting Starscream, wouldn't really be that interested in a Thundercracker, and I wouldn't feel compelled to own all three just because I bought one of them. One of the mold will be enough for me.

I'll probably get Takara Skywarp. Even if Hasbro puts one out, I'm willing to bet the Takara one will have a better deco.

a few imports are worth the extra money, and that's a lot of extra money. but most aren't that different.

I always find trying to get Seekers is sort of a risk. Starscream, to me, is fine alone, but Thundercracker and Skywarp alone or any combination of just 2 seekers to me looks like its desperately missing something. So, in other words, by buying Skywarp I'll feel my collection needs a Thundercracker, but I could be content with just Starscream.

Still, I'll take the risk as I'd love a WFC Seeker trio, so I'll preorder Skywarp.

Fall of the moon deluxe DD-10 Skywarp is still going for the stupid prices on ebay. That mold was not the greatest and people had the need to pay upwards of 50 bucks to import from ebay. I think I will get this one now since I actually like what I see so far in the reviews for this mold.

my one concern is that Skywarp and TC from Takara will have Glossy paint schemes while my US Starscream won't...I'll probably have to rebuy Starscream...

Will have to grab that Skywarp unless haasbro announces one before it comes out. Fortunately for me looks like this is coming out near my birthday.

^ Agreed. Will have to import for the set.

I'm preordering this from Kapow later. With Beast Hunters looming, I'm not getting my hopes up for any more Hasbro Generations toys other than the ones we've already seen, and even then I think Ruination will be struck down with the dreaded "Last Wave Syndrome".
