Earlier, we showed you a gallery of Alternity Starscream. Now it's Alternity Skywarp's turn. Thanks to hk-tf.com, we can now take a good look at the Alternity Skywarp.

Though Alternity Skywarp's vehicle mode is not a jet, his robot mode give-off an impression that he is a jet rather than a car.

Draven
Oh GOD, that looks so damn nice.
tusko
It has a bit of a beast wars feel to it.
asphalt
DAMN that looks nice. I can't believe he turns into a car. I might actually have to pick this one up.
Houndvoice
Head and facesculpt is so much nicer on Skywarp than on Screamer.
akes me wonder why they bothered to make two different sculpts...

Sweet! Can't wait for mine to arrive from BBTS.
metrotitan
much, much better. THIS is the version of the mold that I'll be getting.
Ktulu
Yeah, throw me in the "I like this one more" group
Megatronwp38
This one is much nicer the Screamer. Why they gave him bug eyes is beyond me.
Red leader
this is pure win!

So why did Starscream get bug eyes?
Janeails22x
Too dark for my tastes. I will be going with the Starscream version. I like the addition of red and blue to Screamer. Skywarp looks too much like a California Raisin to me.
Zress Tayasu
screamer didn't get bugeyes. he got foureyes, but someone lazed out on painting in the dividing lines.
einis
I like skywarp more than ss.skywarp looks a lot better
Night Flame
Wow. This guy is incredible. So much nicer than Starscream. Has a very mecha feel in bot mode. Altogether beautiful.
oldtimer48
Sweet!!!! My next car is going to be purple!!!
PoweredConvoy

Agreed. I'm going to wait to cancel my Starscream preorder until a few more images or video pop up. I was comparing the pictures and noticed some issues with exposure that are probably making Starscream look even uglier than he is.

That said, it's very likely I'll just be getting Skywarp. Besides, I've only got one of each of these molds so far, and if I were to get two of a mold, this wouldn't be my first choice to duplicate anyhow.

I like Skywarp a lot! Getting excited.
slugslinger2004
Gotta agree that Skywarp looks better than Starscream. I'm still unsure if I'll order it though.

Beyond Convoy and Megatron, I seem to have lost more and more interest in Alternities
Grimwing
Skywarp wins. Sorry Starscream. But Purple on purple is great.

The nice thing about the starscream gallery was though just how much better these "Seek-Cars" appear over alternity megatron.
Demonss
Well.. I was gonna go starscream being the more "epic" character..
But frankly the head sucks compared to skywarp..
I've cancelled my starscream pre-order and switched to skywarp..
Cloudraker
Not really into the Alternity line, but this Skywarp looks nice. Much better as him than Screamer I think.

The car isn't produced in blue, so Takara won't make a blue version. You may get one with blue highlights though.

supervir2
Much prefer him but probably passing anyway
Human Beastbox
I like this far better than the Starscream.

I may pick this up if it's at BotCon.
Deefuzz
Skywarp was always my favorite seeker, and this Alternity version looks excellent.
Ceasar121
I'm confused as to why Starscream and Skywarp have different head molds, made sense with Bee and Cliff, but Screamer and Warp always have had the same head. Skywarp's head is much nicer. Starscreams looks lame now, especially those totally out of character bug eyes. May wait for a red repaint, and have that be my Alternity Screamer.
FanimusMaximus
Jet not car, though it is creative.
aussiehippy
Skywarp looks 100x better than SS

Might actually get this one.... maybe

Alternity Starscream and Skywarp have identical head sculpts. On Skywarp, however, the head is painted sensibly. The white crest on Starscream is painted purple on Skywarp (like the rest of his head), as are the upper set of eyes. Skywarp looks significantly better as a result.

No they don't. Skywarp has a square jaw with a chin strap, and two eyes. Starscream has a narrow jawline with a snake-like mouth and four eyes.

If the movie designs looked more like this and less like piles of hot garbage I would have enjoyed it more.

Yeah they're heads are completely different. They may share some design aspects (such as the vents on the side of their head) but they're completely different.

As for why Starscream has a different head, I figure it's because he figures himself the most handsome of Transformers - he can't have the same face as someone else.

Although why the "most handsome" transformer has 4 eyes despite a humanoid face, I can't hazard a guess.

I do really like the snake-like jaw design, though. It's perfect. Combined with the more angular head vents than usual, apart from the four eyes, it's vaguely cobra-ish. Heh.

I'll probably paint/sculpt over the upper set of eyes, myself. They don't really add anything to the design.
harrismonkey
I like the idea of a four eyed, monster starscream. But the execution just isn't there this time.
Red Alert
Skywarp does look better but i just can't get excited for these seekers
grimlock1972
much better but still an easy pass for me: Jets not cars

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. He definitely has a lot of smooth lines which is appealing, and with how twisted Starscream is - who knows what his definition of beauty is. I mean look at Street Fighter's Vega. He's definitely handsome, but between his ego and his tattoos (and the evil mask he wears), a lot of people might not see that as handsome/beautiful.

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about. SO glad I chose him to pre-order.

Come to papa!

The Skywarp Definately is much better, the Starscream reminded me of movie color Starscream rather than G1.

Skywarp is more G1, and he has a much cooler face, they could have put a little gray to break up some of the purple, but it looks great.

So are these along the same lines as Alternators in size?
Angelwave
Skywarp's head mold looks great, and IMO, looks a hellified better then Starscream's. For me, the face doesn't distract from everything else. And I can even enjoy the snake motif a bit more. It's only just now after seeing Skywarp that I noticed the slight cobra hood shape the vents on the side of his head form. And the purple makes even more sense now, as it kinda reminds me of an Indigo snake.

They tend to be around the same size as Universe Deluxe Cars in robot mode and a little longer in car mode.

I think Starscream's head is inspired partly by his Machine Wars version with the crest and white face.

This might be my first Alternity figure.

Glad I pre-ordered this guy from BBTS. Looks much better than Starscream. Skywarp was always my favorite since a kid. It might be time to ship my pile of loot with MP-08X.

I've Googled for other colors. One site claims 300 different exterior color selections are available, but almost all the pictures I can find are white, black, or purple. (There are pics of an open-topped version in white, which looks mighty sharp.) I was hoping for a nice bright green so that Skyquake might be possible.

But then there's this paintjob. I give you Alternity Dinobot:

FreshDebesh
And preordered!
